TIME TO BUILD

Nehemiah 4

 1  But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we were building the wall, he was angry, and became greatly upset, and mocked the Jews.

 2  And he spoke before his kindred and the army of Samaria, and said, What are these feeble Jews doing? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they finish in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?

 3  Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox goes up, he shall even break down their stone wall.

 4  Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity:

 5  And do not cover their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before you: for they have provoked you to anger before the builders.

 6  So we built the wall; and all the wall was repaired even to the half of it: for the people had a mind to work.
