Nehemiah committeth the charge of Jerusalem to Hanani and Hananiah.
Nehemiah 7:1 And it came to pass, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors,and the doorkeepers and the singers and the Levites had been appointed, Nehemiah 7:2 that I gave Hanani my brother, and Hananiah captain of the castle, charge over Jerusalem, for, he, was a truly faithful man, and revered God above many.
