Did Nehemiah and Ezra read the Torah ( The Law of Moses) or did Nehemiah have Ezra read the Torah. Because something is wrong with the story....who was suppose to hear it. And did the assembled Jews even hear it? the people and the priest?
Once this task was completed Nehemiah had Ezra read the Law of Moses (the Torah) to the assembled Jews, and the people and priests entered into a covenant to keep the law and separate themselves from all other peoples.
