Nehemiah 7
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Then when the wall was built and the doors stood and the door posts were set up, and the doors were perfected, and the Ministers and the Levites 2I commanded Khanani my brother, and KhananYah, Governor of the palace of Jerusalem, because he was an upright man and was in awe of God and departed from what is evil 3And I said to them: “The gates of Jerusalem shall not be opened until the day has risen high, and while the day remains the gates shall be fastened and they shall be secured, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall appoint a guard, a man for its guard, and each man next to his house.

4And the city was great and was wide, and few people were within it, and there were no houses built for them.
