The Book of Nehemiah

Chapter 1


The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace,


That Hanani, one of my brethren, came,4 he and [certain] men of Judah; and I asked4 them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left8 of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.


And they said4 unto me, The remnant12 that are left8 of the captivity there in the province [are] in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also [is] broken down,30 and the gates thereof are burned8 with fire.


And it came to pass, when I heard2 these words, that I sat down1 and wept,4 and mourned101 [certain] days, and fasted,6 and prayed102 before the God of heaven,


And said,4 I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible12 God, that keepeth6 covenant and mercy for them that love6 him and observe6 his commandments:


Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open,7 that thou mayest hear2 the prayer of thy servant, which I pray102 before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess102 the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned1 against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.1


We have dealt very2 corruptly1 against thee, and have not kept1 the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst14 thy servant Moses.


Remember,3 I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst14 thy servant Moses, saying,2 [If] ye transgress,4 I will scatter55 you abroad among the nations:


But [if] ye turn1 unto me, and keep1 my commandments, and do1 them; though there were of you cast out12 unto the uttermost part of the heaven, [yet] will I gather17 them from thence, and will bring52 them unto the place that I have chosen1 to set15 my name there.


Now these [are] thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed1 by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.


O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear2 thy name: and prosper,54 I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant3 him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.56
