1:1 The words [H1697] of Nehemiah [H5166] the son [H1121] of Hachaliah [H2446] . And it came to pass in the month [H2320] Chisleu [H3691] , in the twentieth [H6242] year [H8141] , as I was in Shushan [H7800] the palace [H1002] ,
1:2 That Hanani [H2607] , one [H259] of my brethren [H251] , came [H935] , he and [certain] men [H582] of Judah [H3063] ; and I asked [H7592] them concerning the Jews [H3064] that had escaped [H6413] , which were left [H7604] of the captivity [H7628] , and concerning Jerusalem [H3389] .
1:3 And they said [H559] unto me, The remnant [H7604] that are left [H7604] of the captivity [H7628] there in the province [H4082] [are] in great [H1419] affliction [H7451] and reproach [H2781] : the wall [H2346] of Jerusalem [H3389] also [is] broken down [H6555] , and the gates [H8179] thereof are burned [H3341] with fire [H784] .
1:4 And it came to pass, when I heard [H8085] these words [H1697] , that I sat down [H3427] and wept [H1058] , and mourned [H56] [certain] days [H3117] , and fasted [H6684] , and prayed [H6419] before [H6440] the God [H430] of heaven [H8064] ,
1:5 And said [H559] , I beseech [H577] thee, O LORD [H3068] God [H430] of heaven [H8064] , the great [H1419] and terrible [H3372] God [H410] , that keepeth [H8104] covenant [H1285] and mercy [H2617] for them that love [H157] him and observe [H8104] his commandments [H4687] :
1:6 Let thine ear [H241] now be attentive [H7183] , and thine eyes [H5869] open [H6605] , that thou mayest hear [H8085] the prayer [H8605] of thy servant [H5650] , which I pray [H6419] before [H6440] thee now [H3117] , day [H3119] and night [H3915] , for the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] thy servants [H5650] , and confess [H3034] the sins [H2403] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , which we have sinned [H2398] against thee: both I and my father's [H1] house [H1004] have sinned [H2398] .
1:7 We have dealt very [H2254] corruptly [H2254] against thee, and have not kept [H8104] the commandments [H4687] , nor the statutes [H2706] , nor the judgments [H4941] , which thou commandedst [H6680] thy servant [H5650] Moses [H4872] .
1:8 Remember [H2142] , I beseech thee, the word [H1697] that thou commandedst [H6680] thy servant [H5650] Moses [H4872] , saying [H559] , [If] ye transgress [H4603] , I will scatter you abroad [H6327] among the nations [H5971] :
1:9 But [if] ye turn [H7725] unto me, and keep [H8104] my commandments [H4687] , and do [H6213] them; though there were of you cast out [H5080] unto the uttermost part [H7097] of the heaven [H8064] , [yet] will I gather [H6908] them from thence, and will bring [H935] them unto the place [H4725] that I have chosen [H977] to set [H7931] my name [H8034] there.
1:10 Now these [are] thy servants [H5650] and thy people [H5971] , whom thou hast redeemed [H6299] by thy great [H1419] power [H3581] , and by thy strong [H2389] hand [H3027] .
1:11 O Lord [H136] , I beseech [H577] thee, let now thine ear [H241] be attentive [H7183] to the prayer [H8605] of thy servant [H5650] , and to the prayer [H8605] of thy servants [H5650] , who desire [H2655] to fear [H3372] thy name [H8034] : and prosper [H6743] , I pray thee, thy servant [H5650] this day [H3117] , and grant [H5414] him mercy [H7356] in the sight [H6440] of this man [H376] . For I was the king's [H4428] cupbearer [H8248] .
