Study 11  From the Book of Nehemiah is: Nehemiah 9: 38 - 10: 39


1.     Make a list of the seven specific ordinances included in the general covenant to walk in God’s law(10:28) and not neglect the house of God (10:39).

2.     What did the people agree (a) to give up, and (b) to give, that they might ‘observe and do all the commandments of the Lord’?  What does this teach us about the meaning of whole-hearted consecration? Cf. 2 Cor. 6:14-7; Pr. 3: 9, 10; Mal. 3:10; 1 Cor. 16:1, 2.

Notes
1.     10:29. ‘Enter into a curse and an oath’: ie., pledged themselves by an oath, invoking divine vengeance upon themselves, if they failed to observe it.
2.     Verse 31b. Cf. Ex. 23:10, 11; Dt. 15:1-3.
3.     Verses 35-39 give a general summary of such laws as Ex. 23:19 and Nu. 18:8-32.
