1 When Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab and our other enemies heard that I had rebuilt the wall and that not a single gap was left -- though at that time I had not fixed the doors to the gates-
Neh 2:10  Neh 2:19  Neh 3:1  Neh 3:3  Neh 4:1  Neh 4:6-7  Dan 9:25 

2 Sanballat and Geshem sent me this message, 'Come and meet us at Ha-Chephirim in the Vale of Ono.' But they had evil designs on me.
1Chr 8:12  Ps 37:12  2Sam 3:27  2Sam 20:9  Eccl 4:4  Ezek 33:31  Jer 41:2 

3 So I sent messengers to them to say, 'I am engaged in a great undertaking, so I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?'
1Tim 4:15-16  John 9:4  Eccl 9:10  Luke 14:30  Matt 10:16  Prov 14:15 

4 Four times they sent me the same invitation and I made them the same reply.
1Cor 15:58  Gal 2:5  Judg 16:6  Judg 16:10  Judg 16:15-20  Luke 18:5  Prov 7:21 

5 The fifth time, with the same purpose in mind, Sanballat sent me his servant bearing an open letter.
2Cor 2:11  2Cor 11:13-15  2Kgs 18:26-28  2Thess 2:10  Eph 6:11 

6 It ran, 'There is a rumour among the nations -- and Gashmu confirms it -- that you and the Jews are thinking of rebelling, which is why you are rebuilding the wall, and you intend to become their king;
Neh 2:19  1Pet 2:12-13  1Pet 3:16  2Cor 6:8  Ezra 4:12  Ezra 4:15  Jer 9:3-6 

7 and that you have even briefed prophets to acclaim you in Jerusalem with the cry, "There is a king in Judah!" Now, these rumours are going to reach the king; so you had better come and discuss them with us.'
1Kgs 1:7  1Kgs 1:18  1Kgs 1:25  1Kgs 1:34  2Sam 15:10-12  Acts 23:15  Neh 6:12-13 

8 To this I sent him the following reply, 'As regards what you say, nothing of the sort has occurred; it is a figment of your own imagination.'
Job 13:4  Ps 52:2  Acts 24:12-13  Acts 25:7  Acts 25:10  Dan 11:27  Isa 59:4 

9 For they were all trying to terrorise us, thinking, 'They will become demoralised over the work and it will not get finished.' But my morale rose even higher.
Ps 138:3  1Pet 5:10  2Cor 12:9  Eph 3:16  Eph 6:10  Phil 4:13  1Sam 30:6 

10 Then, when I went to visit Shemaiah son of Delaiah, son of Mehetabel, since he was prevented from coming to me, he said: We must gather at the Temple of God, inside the sanctuary itself; we must shut the sanctuary doors, for they are coming to kill you, they are coming to kill you tonight!
Jer 36:5  1Kgs 6:5  2Chr 28:24  2Chr 29:3  2Chr 29:7  2Kgs 9:8  2Kgs 11:3 

11 But I retorted, 'Should a man like me run away? Would a man like me go into the Temple to save his life? I shall not go in!'
Prov 28:1  Acts 20:24  Acts 21:13  Luke 13:31-33  Phil 2:17  Ps 11:1-2  Ps 112:6 

12 I realised that God had not sent him to say this, but that he had produced this prophecy for me because Tobiah was paying him
Ezek 13:22  1Cor 2:15  1Cor 12:10  1John 4:1  1Pet 5:2  1Tim 3:3  2Pet 2:3 

13 to terrorise me into doing as he said and committing a sin, so that they would have grounds for blackening my reputation and blaming me.
Jas 4:17  Jer 18:18  Jer 20:10  Neh 6:6  Prov 29:5  1Tim 5:14  2Cor 11:12 

14 Remember Tobiah, my God, for what he did; and Noadiah the prophetess, and the other prophets who tried to terrorise me.
Neh 13:29  2Tim 4:14-15  1John 5:16  1Kgs 22:22-24  2Tim 3:8  Ezek 13:16-17  Isa 9:14-15 

15 The wall was finished within fifty-two days, on the twenty-fifth of Elul.
Neh 4:1-2  Dan 9:25  Ezra 6:15  Ps 1:3 

16 When all our enemies heard about it and all the surrounding nations saw it, they thought it a wonderful thing, because they realised that this work had been accomplished by the power of our God.
Ps 126:2  Josh 5:1  Neh 2:10  Neh 4:1  Neh 4:7  Acts 5:38  Exod 14:25 

17 During this same period, the nobles of Judah kept sending letter after letter to Tobiah, and letters from Tobiah kept arriving for them;
Matt 24:10-12  Mic 7:1-6  Neh 3:5  Neh 5:7  Neh 13:28 

18 for he had many sworn to his interest in Judah, since he was son-in-law to Shecaniah son of Arah, and his son Jehohanan had married the daughter of Meshullam son of Berechiah.
Ezra 2:5  Neh 3:4  Neh 3:30  Neh 7:10 

19 They even cried up his good deeds in my presence, and they reported what I said back to him. And Tobiah kept sending letters to terrorise me.
