Problem: No sons of Levi

  • (Ezra 8:15-16 NKJV) Now I gathered them by the river that flows to Ahava, and we camped there three days.

  • (Ezra 8:20 NKJV) also of the Nethinim, whom David and the leaders had appointed for the service of the Levites, two hundred and twenty Nethinim. All of them were designated by name.


Who are the nethinims l.jpg
Who are the Nethinims?

  • 1Ch 9:2

  • The first inhabitants - i. e. the first inhabitants of the holy land after the return from the captivity. They are enumerated under four heads:

Who are the Nethinims?

  • (1) Israelites, i. e. the mass of the laity, whether belonging to the ten tribes or the two;

  • (2) priests;

  • (3) Levites; and

  • (4) the lowest order of the ministry, the Nethinims.

Who are the Nethinims?

  • 1Ch 9:2

  • These last, whose name is derived from a root “to give,” were a sort of sacred slaves - persons “given” to the Levites to perform the more laborious duties of the sanctuary. Some had been “given” as early as the time of Moses Num_31:47; and the number afterward increased Jos_9:23; Ezr_8:20.

Who are the Nethinims?

  • At the time of the return from the captivity, owing to the small number of Levites who came back Ezr_2:40-42, the services of the Nethinims became very important. They are mentioned under the name of Nethinims only in Chronicles, Ezra, and Nehemiah. -- Albert Barnes



Fast and pray l.jpg
Fast and Pray

  • (Ezra 8:21 NKJV) Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions.



The dilema l.jpg
The Dilema

  • (Ezra 8:22 NKJV) For I was ashamed to request of the king an escort of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy on the road, because we had spoken to the king, saying, "The hand of our God is upon all those for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him.”


What shall we do l.jpg
What shall we do?

  • (Ezra 8:23 NKJV) So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayer.


Sending valuable cargo l.jpg
Sending valuable Cargo

  • (Ezra 8:24-26 NKJV); And I separated twelve of the leaders of the priests Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them; {25} and weighed out to them the silver, the gold, and the articles, the offering for the house of our God which the king and his counselors and his princes, and all Israel who were present, had offered.


Accountability l.jpg
Accountability

  • (Ezra 8:27-28 NKJV) twenty gold basins worth a thousand drachmas, and two vessels of fine polished bronze, precious as gold. {28} And I said to them, "You are holy to the LORD; the articles are holy also; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering to the LORD God of your fathers.


Accountability22 l.jpg
Accountability

  • (Ezra 8:29-30 NKJV) "Watch and keep them until you weigh them before the leaders of the priests and the Levites and heads of the fathers' houses of Israel in Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD." {30} So the priests and the Levites received the silver and the gold and the articles by weight, to bring them to Jerusalem to the house of our God.

Protected by God back to Jerusalem

  • (Ezra 8:31-32 NKJV) Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go to Jerusalem. And the hand of our God was upon us, and He delivered us from the hand of the enemy and from ambush along the road. {32} So we came to Jerusalem, and stayed there three days.


Everything accounted for l.jpg
Everything accounted for

  • (Ezra 8:33-34 NKJV) Now on the fourth day the silver and the gold and the articles were weighed in the house of our God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest, and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; with them were the Levites, Jozabad the son of Jeshua and Noadiah the son of Binnui, {34} with the number and weight of everything. All the weight was written down at that time.

An offering was made

  • (Ezra 8:35 NKJV) The children of those who had been carried away captive, who had come from the captivity, offered burnt offerings to the God of Israel: twelve bulls for all Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven lambs, and twelve male goats as a sin offering. All this was a burnt offering to the LORD.


The orders were delivered l.jpg
The orders were delivered

  • (Ezra 8:36 NKJV) And they delivered the king's orders to the king's satraps and the governors in the region beyond the River. So they gave support to the people and the house of God.



What s the problem l.jpg
What’s the Problem?

  • (Ezra 9:1-4 NKJV) When these things were done, the leaders came to me, saying, "The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, with respect to the abominations of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.


What s the problem29 l.jpg
What’s the Problem?

  • (Ezra 9:1-4 NKJV) {2} "For they have taken some of their daughters as wives for themselves and their sons, so that the holy seed is mixed with the peoples of those lands. Indeed, the hand of the leaders and rulers has been foremost in this trespass.”


What s the problem30 l.jpg
What’s the Problem?

  • (Ezra 9:1-4 NKJV) {3} So when I heard this thing, I tore my garment and my robe, and plucked out some of the hair of my head and beard, and sat down astonished. {4} Then everyone who trembled at the words of the God of Israel assembled to me, because of the transgression of those who had been carried away captive, and I sat astonished until the evening sacrifice.
