  1. 28″The rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, the temple servants, and all who have separated themselves from the peoples of the lands to the Law of God, their wives, their sons, their daughters, all who have knowledge and understanding, 29join with their brothers, their nobles, and enter into a curse and an oath to walk in God’s Law that was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the Lord our Lord and his rules and his statutes.

  2. Nehemiah 10:39 (ESV)
    For the people of Israel and the sons of Levi shall bring the contribution of grain, wine, and oil to the chambers, where the vessels of the sanctuary are, as well as the priests who minister, and the gatekeepers and the singers. We will not neglect the house of our God.”

    I thought of 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 where, because of Christ, our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. How important that we maintain and take care of this temple for sustained worship and honoring He who gives us life. I must also make a covenant to not neglect the house of our God.
    Also, when I read the Scriptures, I often forget how much is required to sustain the Levites, the priests, and the sacrificial system. This is a condensed recap of people committing to provide for worship, for the work of God.

  3. What a noble and righteous response to the reading of the law. After hearing the unfaithfulness of their forefathers and how they neglected the things of God, these new residents of Jerusalem commit themselves to follow God and take care of what is dear to Him, His temple and those who serve Him there. What a good step also considering Nehemiah and the others are trying to lay the ground work for a new Israelite society in the promised land. It is especially important in the beginning of things to know who is vested in making this happen. Commitments like this naturally only make sense when people do them, but it does establish the will in something, strengthening the resolve to do the very things that they/we know we should do anyway. Commitments done for show are hypocritical. Commitments done to establish our will in that which is good is beneficial as we see here in this chapter.
