Nehemiah 9:4 Meaning and Commentary

Nehemiah 9:4

Then stood up upon the stairs of the Levites
On an ascent; an elevated place where the Levites used to stand when they sang at the time of sacrifice, and where they might be seen and heard by the people:

Jeshua and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and
Chenani;
who seem to be all Levites, see ( Nehemiah 8:7 ) ,

and cried with a loud voice unto the Lord their God;
praying with great fervency, and making bitter lamentation for the sins of the people and their own.

2 The Israelites broke off all relations with foreigners, stood up, and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their parents.
3 While they stood there in their places, they read from the Book of The Revelation of God, their God, for a quarter of the day. For another quarter of the day they confessed and worshiped their God.

5 The Levites Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah said, "On your feet! Bless God, your God, for ever and ever!" Blessed be your glorious name, exalted above all blessing and praise!
6 You're the one, God, you alone; You made the heavens, the heavens of heavens, and all angels; The earth and everything on it, the seas and everything in them; You keep them all alive; heaven's angels worship you!
