  1. dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought the Levites in all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication with gladness, with thanksgivings and with singing, with cymbals, harps, and lyres.

  2. Sweet community of worship.
    Responsive readings of praise and thanksgiving were performed: “And the leaders of the Levites were Hashabiah, Sherebiah, Jeshua son of Kadmiel, and their associates, who stood opposite them to give praise and thanksgiving, one section responding to the other, as prescribed by David the man of God.
    Musicians performed songs of thanksgiving.
    Priests purified themselves and the people and the wall.
    Choirs paraded through and then took their places in the house of God.
    Organizers maintained the food tithes and those in service were given daily portions….and even they set aside portions for each other.

    “The sound of rejoicing in Jerusalem could be heard far away.”

  3. I can imagine the joy the people felt seeing the work of God completed and that the people can now begin the task of settling down in the various towns and in Jerusalem. Imagine our joy and the singing that will occur in the presence of Christ, of the eternal God when we enter the great heavenly city! Oh, what a day that will be.

  4. It is a good thing to celebrate achievement, to recognize those that have made things happen and encourage people for a job well done. And what better way than to assemble singers to exalt an praise our God whose help is vital in all aspects of life. We can only imagine the affirmation, encouragement and thankfulness that occupied people’s hearts as they walk along the top of the wall. They were deliberate to pass all these sections so as to reenforce all those things. So among all the other things Nehemiah accomplishes, it’s clear he new how to coordinate a celebration and was deliberate about the people he assembled to make it happen. It is what good planning is all about.

  5. 27And at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought the Levites in all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication with gladness, with thanksgivings and with singing, with cymbals, harps, and lyres.

    0And the priests and the Levites purified themselves, and they purified the people and the gates and the wall.
