Solomon had a zoo with apes and peacocks, Nebuchadnezzar is said to have had a zoo with super unbelievable animals in the inventory and even our own Keb has a zoo.  What?  Did you think I was going to say even Keb was in Chad’s zoo?  Anyway, I’ll let Keb’s zookeeper speak for herself when she hosts the Amos quiz.  Nehemiah, however, was the cupbearer, meaning he was also the taste-tester to ensure the king wasn’t poisoned.  So, he was good friends with Arty, and when Ol’ Art saw his friend was sad in his presence, which was actually illegal and punishable by death, the king pointed this out.  What was Nehemiah’s response?

-He prayed-

-He apologized-

-He begged for mercy-

-He denied it-
