Summary: Ezra’s response to the backsliding of the people.
1. EZRA’S TEAR
"When I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle".
2. EZRA’S HAIR
"When I heard this thing, I...plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard".
3. EZRA’S PRAYER

Revive Thy work, O Lord,
Thy mighty arm make bare;
Speak with the voice that wakes the dead,
And make Thy people hear.
