Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO NEHEMIAH 9\\

In this chapter we have an account of a fast kept by the Jews, which
was observed, as by outward acts of humiliation, so by confession of
sin, reading the law, and worshipping the Lord, \\#Ne 9:1-3\\ and of a
long prayer that the Levites made, in which they celebrate the divine
perfections, take notice of various instances of the goodness of God to
the people of Israel, acknowledge their manifold transgressions,
observe the Lord's correction of them for them, in which they own he
was righteous, \\#Ne 9:4-38\\.
