Nehemiah 8:8 (KJV)
So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.
This must have been a sight.
The Jews assembled together
The pulpit was tall enough that Ezra could be seen by all the congregation who were standing.
The Bible priests, scribes, and Levites scattered among the people.
The Bible says three things happened that day concerning the Word of God:
They read it distinctly
Carefully, loudly, so that all could hear.
They gave the sense
Which is hermeneutic; they told them an interpretation.
They caused them to understand
They did some teaching. They expressed what the Bible meant to them personally.
Good lessons for us today.
 From morning to mid-day
