Also a look at the discussion we have been having over serving the Lord's Supper twice on the same Sunday at the same place. Class notes attached (on the website).
Some of the exiles (Jews) had married foreign wives, in violation of the Mosaic Law. Ezra's prayer saves them from the wrath of God, as does their penance - to put away (divorce) the wives and children.
