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 a sword strapped to his side as he worked. I kept the trumpeter at my side to sound the alert.
19 Then I spoke to the nobles and officials and everyone else: "There's a lot of work going on and we are spread out all along the wall, separated from each other.
20 When you hear the trumpet call, join us there; our God will fight for us."
21 And so we kept working, from first light until the stars came out, half of us holding lances.
22 I also instructed the people, "Each person and his helper is to stay inside Jerusalem - guards by night and workmen by day."
