The people of Israel have been back in the land for seven months and some may wonder that they didn't rebuild the altar first. But we don't know the extent of the destruction in the city, was it safe to go to where the altar was? Maybe it took some time to even get to that point. We also don't know that they didn't find some other place to worship while building. When I read this I get the feeling that as soon as they could, they restored the most important parts and began the old ceremonies of worship. There's a song we sing occasionally, I'm coming back to the heart of worship, it's all about You Jesus. Remember that worshiping God isn't ceremonies anyway, it's an attitude of surrender and gratitude. It's simply acknowledging that God IS, and I am His. Jesus told the woman at the well, it doesn't matter where or how you worship, just worship in your spirit the true God.
