Chs. 9, 10. The Solemn Covenant

Chapter 9. After the celebration of the ‘solemn assembly’ on the 22nd of the month Tisri one day’s interval is allowed, and on the 24th a special religious function is performed by the whole people, consisting (1) of a humble confession of national sin, (2) of a national covenant to obey the Law. Thus Ezra and Nehemiah availed themselves of the revival of religious enthusiasm to bind the people by a public declaration.
