Israel dwelt in their cities

Nehemiah Bible Background

06.18.2017 – Old Testament: Neh 7.73

To read the Bible in a year, read Nehemiah 7–8 on June 18, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Israel truly returned from Babylonian captivity, for Nehemiah recorded the families that returned and what they gave for the work of rebuilding their wall. Then he said,

So the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, some of the people, the Nethinim, and all Israel dwelt in their cities. When the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities (Nehemiah 7.73). 

The Lord said this would happen and it happened, although some people say it has yet to happen.


  • Have you noticed that the Lord keeps His promises?
  • What other promises has He kept?
