Nehemiah 5

  1. What social evil did Nehemiah put right (see verses 1-13)? And how did he do it?
  2. What features of his conduct made Nehemiah an excellent governor? Are we developing similar characteristics?
  3. What considerations ought to keep God’s people from doing some things that others do as a matter of course? Cf. verse 15 and 1 Cor 8:13.

Note. Verses 1-5. The wealthier Jews were evidently demanding repayment at high interest of money lent by them to their poorer brethren, and were seizing the lands and even the person of the debtors whenever their demands were not met.
