* Remember me.
22,31 5:19 Ps 122:6-9 Heb 6:10 Re 3:5
* wipe not.
If thou wert strict to mark what is done amiss, even my good
deeds must be wiped out: but, Lord, remember me in thy mercy,
and let my upright conduct be acceptable to Thee! By some,
Nehemiah has been thought to deal too much with God on the
principle of merit. That he wished God to remember him for
good is sufficiently evident, and who does not wish the same?
But that he expected heaven for his good deeds does not
appear; for it is perfectly clear that he expected nothing
from God but through the greatness of his mercy.
* good deeds. Heb. kindnesses. house.
