The character of the community of faith in Nehemiah 9. In this study the prayer in Nehemiah 9:5b-37 is compared with Psalm 106 and investigated within its literary and social context. The conclusion is reached that the community of faith portrayed in this prayer is a cultic community standing in a relationship with God which expresses its guilt as well as its finn belief in God's power to change its circumstances.
