Occupations

In Nehemiah, the occupations of the majority of the men rebuilding the wall are not recorded. Of those that are listed: priests, goldsmiths, perfumer, Levites, keeper of the East Gate, and merchants.

Nehemiah 3:1,8,32 interposed with Ephesians 5:2 NIV
Walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us
Eliashib the high priest and his fellow priests went to work and rebuilt the Sheep Gate. They dedicated it and set its doors in place, building as far as the Tower of the Hundred, which they dedicated, and as far as the Tower of Hananel. . . .
as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Uzziel son of Harhaiah, one of the goldsmiths, repaired the next section; and Hananiah, one of the perfume-makers, made repairs next to that. They restored Jerusalem as far as the Broad Wall. . . . And between the going up of the corner unto the sheep gate repaired the goldsmiths and the merchants.

Our Father in heaven,
We thank You that there are Christians in various occupations across the Mississippi Delta. May they walk in the way of love and rebuild the wall of salvation, their sacrifices a pleasing fragrance in the throne room of heaven. Amen.
