The verse in this section begins with Ezra saying I am ashamed and humiliated. Why was Ezra so humiliated? It was because of corruption of the younger men taking wives of the people of the land around them.  They didn’t know Israel’s God.  Soon things would revert back to what had got them into captivity in the first place. It wouldn’t hurt for the people of God to have the same kind of spirit that Ezra had because what we call Christianity has reverted back to some of the same things that have been happening at Ezra’s time.  If he was so humiliated so am I.  What has so called Christianity to boast about? What was Ezra’s plight? They married foreign wives.  God from the beginning was teaching something different.
