Now when1the wall was rebuilt and I had set up the doors, and the gatekeepers and the singers and the Levites were appointed,
then I put2Hanani my brother, and 3Hananiah the commander of 4the fortress, in charge of Jerusalem, for he was 5a faithfulman and fearedGodmorethanmany.
Then I said to them, "Do not let the gates of Jerusalem be openeduntil the sun is hot, and while they are standing guard, let them shut and bolt the doors. Also appointguards from the inhabitants of Jerusalem, each at his post, and each in front of his own house."
Now the city was large and spacious, but the people in it were few and the houses were not built.
