Nehemiah 4:23 – Always Armed

Today’s Reading: Nehemiah 3:15‐5:13, 1 Corinthians 7:25‐40, Psalm 32:1‐11, Proverbs 21:5‐7

Nehemiah 4:23 – So neither I nor my brothers nor my servants nor the men of the guard who followed me, none of us took off our clothes; each kept his weapon at his right hand.


  • Context: As Nehemiah and the people are rebuilding the walls, they are threatened by their enemies.
  • None of the workers took off their clothes
  • Each kept his weapon at his right hand

Apply:  Tomorrow we will “complete the wall” in our summer camp ministry.  I will finish a season of not being able to take off my clothes or put down my weapon.  I want to affirm the guards God has placed around me this summer.

Have you gone through a season like this in life?
