Nehemiah 4:20

20 Wherever you hear the trumpet sound, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us!"

Nehemiah 4:20 Meaning and Commentary

Nehemiah 4:20

In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet
Be it what part of the wall soever they were at work, even the most distant:

resort ye thither to us;
to Nehemiah, and the half of his servants armed, where the trumpet was blown; that was to be the place of rendezvous:

our God shall fight for us;
and give us victory over our enemies; none have any reason to be intimidated, when they shall hear the sound of the trumpet.

Nehemiah 4:20 In-Context

18 Each of the builders had his sword strapped around his waist while he was building, and the trumpeter was beside me.
19 Then I said to the nobles, the officials, and the rest of the people: "The work is enormous and spread out, and we are separated far from one another along the wall.
20 Wherever you hear the trumpet sound, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us!"
21 So we continued the work, while half of the men were holding spears from daybreak until the stars came out.
22 At that time, I also said to the people, "Let everyone and his servant spend the night inside Jerusalem, so that they can stand guard by night and work by day."
