Rebuilding the Jerusalem Wall

Date: 445 BC – Year: 3559 – Ref: Neh 9:23;

“"You made their sons numerous as the stars of heaven, and you brought them into the land which you had told their fathers to enter and possess.” (Ne 9:23 NAS95)

Ezra and the people of Israel read from the Book of the Law and recall God’s faithfulness and promise of fruitfulness in the Abrahamic Covenant.  They look back at this as a time of blessing, and as proof of that blessing, they recall the multiplication of children, which enabled them to take and possess the land.
