Nehemiah, the Jewish cupbearer for King Artaxerxes of Persia, returned to Jerusalem and led the rebuilding of the city wall. He told of Ezra, the Priest, reading the law of God to the people of Jerusalem. Nehemiah also told of the Jews pledging not to marry non-Jewish people, to honor the Sabbath, to refrain from working the land and to cancel debts between Jews every seventh year (Nehemiah 10: 31), to give the oldest son to God (i.e. to the priests), and to bring a tithe of all produced to the Levites (Nehemiah 10: 37) for the use of the Temple and priests.
