Nehemiah 6 - Nehemiah faced some personal opposition when the Arab leaders threatened him with physical harm if he didn't meet with them. He withstood their threats with manly strength. Later, a deceptive man tried to get Nehemiah to hide in the Temple to avoid being attacked. Nehemiah rebuked this man and kept to his work. By verse 15 the entire wall was completed. Even their enemies concluded "that this work was done by our God" verse 16.
Nehemiah 7 - Nehemiah put the city under the care of his brother, Hanani, and another faithful man, Hananiah, verse 2. He gave them the responsibility of guarding the city and keeping watch on the gates and activities within the walls. From verses 5 to the end of this chapter Nehemiah organized a record be kept of all the nobles and rulers of the people.
