Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO EZRA 10\\

Upon Ezra's prayer and confession, it was proposed by Shechaniah,
that those who had married strange wives should put them away with
their children, which they swore to do, \\#Ezr 10:1-5\\, and
proclamation was made throughout the land for all to meet at
Jerusalem in three days' time, and accordingly they did,
\\#Ezr 10:6-9\\ when, at the exhortation of Ezra, all agreed to it, and
persons were appointed to see it done, and the work was finished in
the space of three months, \\#Ezr 10:10-17\\ and a list of the names
of those is given who had married such wives, and now put them away;
of the priests, \\#Ezr 10:18-22\\, of the Levites, \\#Ezr 10:23,24\\,
of the other Israelites, \\#Ezr 10:24-44\\.
