REVIVAL RESULTS IN REJOICING

reconstruct the temple. People who had settled in the land
during their exile began to criticize them. After finishing the
temple foundation they stopped work. Twenty years later Haggai
motivated them to complete it. Sixty more years lapsed and
others returned from Babylon. The temple had been rebuilt but
the walls of the city were not. The walls were a symbol of the
spiritual condition of the people. Their spiritual life was in
shambles. Nehemiah was living in the land at the time serving as
the king's cupbearer, a very comfortable position.
