And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was above all the people, and as he opened it all the people stood. And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God, and all the people answered, “Amen, Amen,” lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground. Nehemiah 8:5-6
That’s not all! While Ezra read the book of the law, there were others throughout the congregation, appointed to explain what the scripture meant so that it was understood by everyone. That is why we have preachers, and teachers. God is so good! He never wanted anyone to be left out for lack of understanding. Isn’t this interesting?
