2 Corinthians 7 is an exhortation to holiness, and the whole church is included. Paul rejoiced in their sorrowing to repentance, and in the comfort they and Titus had together.

Nehemiah 11 lists the people of Jerusalem  and the people outside Jerusalem.

Nehemiah 12 lists the priests and Levites, the time had come for Nehemiah to Dedicate  the wall, and the temple responsibilities are specified.

Nehemiah 13, the final reforms of Nehemiah, give the temple service its due, observe the Sabbath and don’t marry strange women.
