Abstract

The Meaning of the Ordination of the Jerusalem Wall in Nehemiah 12: 27-43 discusses two processes, each of which was led by a group of choirs, traveling from the opposite direction along the upper part of the vast wall. The Israelites met in the Temple area and ended with thanksgiving and sacrifices. This scientific work uses a text research methodology with a specific narrative genre in the form of story reports. The report on the dedication of the walls of Jerusalem does not reveal a problem or a resolution. The text only describes the sequence of events (facts) in the dedication of the walls of Jerusalem. The dedication ceremony for the Jerusalem wall was a report from Nehemiah. The text of Nehemiah 12: 27-43 only describes events that occurred during the celebration of the dedication of the walls of Jerusalem. The theological significance in the Ordination of the Jerusalem Wall according to Nehemiah 12: 27-43 shows the role of God (God gives joy, God guides the repair of Jerusalem's walls), the importance of giving thanks, and the importance of God's people in praising God.
