Nehemiah 4:6 says, 
 So we rebuilt the wall till all of it reached half its height, for the people worked with all their heart.

I would say that Nehemiah 4:13-23 indicates that the people were able to work wholeheartedly, without worry or fear, through a combination of faith in God (especially as shown in verses 14 and 20), adequate armaments (as well as men to wield them, even while working), and a plan of mutual defense, where as many people as necessary would come to the assistance of any part of the project that might come under attack.
