Nehemiah 9:6

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!

Nehemiah 9:6 Meaning and Commentary

Nehemiah 9:6

Thou, even thou art Lord alone
Whose name alone is Jehovah, the one only true and living God:

thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host;
the airy and starry heavens, and the sun, moon, and stars in them, and the third heaven, the seat of God, angels, and saints:

the earth, and all things that are therein;
men, beasts, trees, metals, minerals

the seas, and all that is therein;
fishes, sea plants see ( Acts 4:24 ) ,

and thou preservest them all;
they consist in thee, and are upheld in their being by thee, ( Hebrews 1:3 ) ( Colossians 1:17 ) ( Psalms 36:6 )

and the host of heaven worshipped thee;
not the sun, moon, and stars, only in their way, ( Psalms 148:2 Psalms 148:3 ) but the angels chiefly, ( Hebrews 1:6 ) .

4 A group of Levites - Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Kenani - stood on the platform and cried out to God, their God, in a loud voice.
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!

7 You're the one, God, the God who chose Abram And brought him from Ur of the Chaldees and changed his name to Abraham.
8 You found his heart to be steady and true to you and signed a covenant with him, A covenant to give him the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, and the Amorites, The Perizzites, Jebusites, and Girgashites, - to give it to his descendants. And you kept your word because you are righteous.
