In this chapter we have the names of the persons that signed and sealed
the covenant mentioned in the last chapter, \\#Ne 10:1-27\\, and the
things they agreed unto and promised to perform; in general to observe
the law of God, in particular not to marry with the people of the land,
to keep the sabbaths weekly and yearly, to pay annually the third part
of the shekel for the service of the temple, to bring into it the wood
offerings, first fruits, firstborn, and tithes, \\#Ne 10:28-39\\.
