[ Illustration: Today's painting depicts a mythological god noted for his lies and deceit, a fitting symbol of the demonically inspired men who opposed the Jews of Nehemiah's day. ]
[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: Nehemiah 6 describes the lies and threats which Sanballat and his cohorts used against the Jews.
When Sanballat and his associates heard that Nehemiah completed the wall of Jerusalem, they tried several times to lure Nehemiah into a meeting for the purpose of doing him harm. Nehemiah refused. They also threatened to tell the king that Nehemiah was fomenting rebellion. But he prayed to God for strength (1-9).
Also, Shemaiah tried to convince Nehemiah to hide in the Temple from his enemies. But Nehemiah perceived that God had not sent him, so he prayed that God would bring judgment to him and his associates (10-14).
So, when the wall was finished, the enemies of the Jews were chagrined because they realized that God had helped them. However, many in Judah were in alliance with Tobiah due to family ties, so the threat remained (15-19).
NOTE: Nehemiah (served 445-425 B.C.) was contemporary with the following Biblical persons: Joel (580-450 B.C. -- if this late date applies, rather than a date in the 9th century B.C.); Haggai (520 B.C.); Zechariah (520-518 B.C.); Esther (483-473 B.C.); Ezra (538-456 B.C.).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.
