Nehemiah reveals his plans (Neh 2:17-2:18)

“Then I said to them. ‘You see the trouble we are in. How Jerusalem lies in ruins with its gates burned? Come! Let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we may no longer suffer disgrace.’ I told them that the hand of my God had been gracious upon me. I told them also about the words that the king had spoken to me. They said. ‘Let us start building.’ So they committed themselves to the common good.”

Nehemiah then revealed his plan to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, his plan to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. He pointed out that the gates were burned. They would no longer be in disgrace if they had a nice wall. He then told them that both God and the king were on his side. They immediately responded that they would help build the wall. They committed themselves to this common cause. However, there is no indication of how many people in Jerusalem were interested.
