When Nehemiah heard that the walls of Jerusalem were broken down, he prayed for four months, and then rebuilt the wall in less than two months.
This isn’t immediately obvious.
Because Nehemiah calls the months by their Jewish names, it’s easy to overlook that the time from Chisleu to Nisan was the time from, roughly, November to March.
Nehemiah prayed four months, and then rebuilt the wall in only 52 days.
Such a great story! But how easy to miss!
