Chapter 11

Jerusalem was walled round, but it was not as yet fully inhabited, and therefore was weak and despicable. Nehemiah’s next care is to bring people into it; of that we have here an account. I. The methods taken to replenish it, Neh. 11:1, 2. II. The principal persons that resided there, of Judah and Benjamin (Neh. 11:3-9), of the priests and Levites, Neh. 11:10-19. III. The several cities and villages of Judah and Benjamin that were peopled by the rest of their families, Neh. 11:20-36.
