Nehemiah 8:8 – Clear Understanding

Today’s Reading: Nehemiah 7:61‐9:21, 1 Corinthians 9:1‐18, Psalm 33:12‐22, Proverbs 21:11‐12

Nehemiah 8:8 – They read from the book, from the Law of God, clearly, and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading.

Observations:

  • Context: Ezra reads the scrolls and “the ears of all the people were attentive to the Book of the Law.”  They worship in response to the reading of the Word and a group of Levites and named men “helped the people to understand.”
  • They read from the book – Law of God
  • Clearly
  • They gave sense
  • So the people understood the reading

Apply: “Lord, give me clear understanding of your Word and help me to give this sense to others.”

Can you share an experience where someone read the Bible to you, clearly, and gave you sense, so that you understood the reading?
