Bible: Nehemiah 6:7-9

6:7 You have also established prophets to announce 1  in Jerusalem 2  on your behalf, ‘We have a king in Judah!’ Now the king is going to hear about these rumors. So come on! Let’s talk about this.” 3 

6:8 I sent word back to him, “We are not engaged in these activities you are describing. 4  All of this is a figment of your imagination.” 5 

6:9 All of them were wanting 6  to scare us, supposing, “Their hands will grow slack from the work, and it won’t get done.”

So now, strengthen my hands! 7
