Neh 10:1-39. After hearing the Law of Moses (ch 8) and confessing their sins (ch 9), the civil and religious leaders seal a covenant, promising their obedience to God's law. The laypeople as well committed themselves to the commandments of the Lord—in particular, avoidance of intermarriage (Ex 34:16), observance of the Sabbath (Lev 25:3), and adherence to temple regulations. As these post-exilic Israelites set an example of spiritual reformation and commitment to the house of God, so too we should be committed to the body of Christ.
