Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO NEHEMIAH 2\\

Nehemiah being sorrowful in the king's presence, the reason of it was
asked by the king, which he declared, and then took the opportunity
to request of the king that he might be sent to Jerusalem to rebuild
it, which was granted him, \\#Ne 2:1-8\\, upon which he set
out, and came to Jerusalem, to the great grief of the enemies
of Israel, \\#Ne 2:9-11\\ and after he had been three days in
Jerusalem, he privately took a survey of it, to see what condition it
was in, unknown to the rulers there, \\#Ne 2:12-16\\, whom he
afterwards exhorted to rise up and build the wall of the city, which
they immediately set about, \\#Ne 2:17,18\\ not regarding the scoffs
and taunts of their enemies, \\#Ne 2:19,20\\.
