The Israelites fasted, confessed their sins ans seperated themselves from the heathen.vs 1,2 It was revival all over again.vs 3. The levites stood up and cried to the lord with a loud voice.vs4.Ezra prayed summarizing Israel’s history. It traces God’s faithfulness and power from the creation unto the return of the exiles from Babylonian captivity
Looking back, Israelites confessed their failure during 40 years of wandering in the wilderness and acknowledged the judgement of God during times of judges and kings God had sent was just and right.
Israelites repented, signed a document to walk in God’s law before God with Nehemiah signing first of all.
We can be warned by the failures of the past
We can be encouraged by God’s goodness and mercy. We can be motivated and challenged by the success of those before us
