Sanballat and his brethren, hearing the wall was finished, sent to
Nehemiah, to have a meeting with him at a place named, which he
refused, \\#Ne 6:1,2\\, then they sent him a terrifying letter,
suggesting that he, and the Jews with him, would be treated as rebels,
since their intention, as reported, was to make him king, which letter
he regarded not, \\#Ne 6:3-9\\, then they employed some that pretended
to be prophets to advise him to flee to the temple for safety, which he
rejected, \\#Ne 6:10-14\\ and so the work went on and was finished,
though there was a secret correspondence carried on between their
enemies and some false brethren among themselves, \\#Ne 6:15-19\\.
