2:1 And it came to pass in the month [H2320] Nisan [H5212] , in the twentieth [H6242] year [H8141] of Artaxerxes [H783] the king [H4428] , [that] wine [H3196] [was] before [H6440] him: and I took up [H5375] the wine [H3196] , and gave [H5414] [it] unto the king [H4428] . Now I had not been [beforetime] sad [H7451] in his presence [H6440] .

2:2 Wherefore the king [H4428] said [H559] unto me, Why [is] thy countenance [H6440] sad [H7451] , seeing thou [art] not sick [H2470] ? this [is] nothing [else] but sorrow [H7455] of heart [H3820] . Then I was very [H3966] sore [H7235] afraid [H3372] ,

2:3 And said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , Let the king [H4428] live [H2421] for ever [H5769] : why should not my countenance [H6440] be sad [H3415] , when the city [H5892] , the place [H1004] of my fathers' [H1] sepulchres [H6913] , [lieth] waste [H2720] , and the gates [H8179] thereof are consumed [H398] with fire [H784] ?

2:4 Then the king [H4428] said [H559] unto me, For what dost thou make request [H1245] ? So I prayed [H6419] to the God [H430] of heaven [H8064] .

2:5 And I said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , If it please [H2895] the king [H4428] , and if thy servant [H5650] have found favour [H3190] in thy sight [H6440] , that thou wouldest send [H7971] me unto Judah [H3063] , unto the city [H5892] of my fathers' [H1] sepulchres [H6913] , that I may build [H1129] it.

2:6 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto me, (the queen [H7694] also sitting [H3427] by him [H681] ,) For how long shall thy journey [H4109] be? and when wilt thou return [H7725] ? So it pleased [H3190] [H6440] the king [H4428] to send [H7971] me; and I set [H5414] him a time [H2165] .(queen: Heb. wife)

2:7 Moreover I said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , If it please [H2895] the king [H4428] , let letters [H107] be given [H5414] me to the governors [H6346] beyond [H5676] the river [H5104] , that they may convey me over [H5674] till I come [H935] into Judah [H3063] ;

2:8 And a letter [H107] unto Asaph [H623] the keeper [H8104] of the king's [H4428] forest [H6508] , that he may give [H5414] me timber [H6086] to make beams [H7136] for the gates [H8179] of the palace [H1002] which [appertained] to the house [H1004] , and for the wall [H2346] of the city [H5892] , and for the house [H1004] that I shall enter into [H935] . And the king [H4428] granted [H5414] me, according to the good [H2896] hand [H3027] of my God [H430] upon me.

2:9 Then I came [H935] to the governors [H6346] beyond [H5676] the river [H5104] , and gave [H5414] them the king's [H4428] letters [H107] . Now the king [H4428] had sent [H7971] captains [H8269] of the army [H2428] and horsemen [H6571] with me.

2:10 When Sanballat [H5571] the Horonite [H2772] , and Tobiah [H2900] the servant [H5650] , the Ammonite [H5984] , heard [H8085] [of it], it grieved [H3415] them exceedingly [H7451] [H1419] that there was come [H935] a man [H120] to seek [H1245] the welfare [H2896] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] .

2:11 So I came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] , and was there three [H7969] days [H3117] .

2:12 And I arose [H6965] in the night [H3915] , I and some [H4592] few [H4592] men [H582] with me; neither told [H5046] I [any] man [H120] what my God [H430] had put [H5414] in my heart [H3820] to do [H6213] at Jerusalem [H3389] : neither [was there any] beast [H929] with me, save the beast [H929] that I rode upon [H7392] .

2:13 And I went out [H3318] by night [H3915] by the gate [H8179] of the valley [H1516] , even before [H6440] the dragon [H8577] well [H5869] [H5886] , and to the dung [H830] port [H8179] , and viewed [H7663] [H7665] the walls [H2346] of Jerusalem [H3389] , which were broken down [H6555] , and the gates [H8179] thereof were consumed [H398] with fire [H784] .

2:14 Then I went on [H5674] to the gate [H8179] of the fountain [H5869] , and to the king's [H4428] pool [H1295] : but [there was] no place [H4725] for the beast [H929] [that was] under me to pass [H5674] .

2:15 Then went I up [H5927] in the night [H3915] by the brook [H5158] , and viewed [H7663] [H7665] the wall [H2346] , and turned back [H7725] , and entered [H935] by the gate [H8179] of the valley [H1516] , and [so] returned [H7725] .

2:16 And the rulers [H5461] knew [H3045] not whither I went [H1980] , or what I did [H6213] ; neither had I as yet [H3651] told [H5046] [it] to the Jews [H3064] , nor to the priests [H3548] , nor to the nobles [H2715] , nor to the rulers [H5461] , nor to the rest [H3499] that did [H6213] the work [H4399] .

2:17 Then said [H559] I unto them, Ye see [H7200] the distress [H7451] that we [are] in, how Jerusalem [H3389] [lieth] waste [H2720] , and the gates [H8179] thereof are burned [H3341] with fire [H784] : come [H3212] , and let us build up [H1129] the wall [H2346] of Jerusalem [H3389] , that we be no more a reproach [H2781] .

2:18 Then I told [H5046] them of the hand [H3027] of my God [H430] which was good [H2896] upon me; as also the king's [H4428] words [H1697] that he had spoken [H559] unto me. And they said [H559] , Let us rise up [H6965] and build [H1129] . So they strengthened [H2388] their hands [H3027] for [this] good [H2896] [work].

2:19 But when Sanballat [H5571] the Horonite [H2772] , and Tobiah [H2900] the servant [H5650] , the Ammonite [H5984] , and Geshem [H1654] the Arabian [H6163] , heard [H8085] [it], they laughed us to scorn [H3932] , and despised [H959] us, and said [H559] , What [is] this thing [H1697] that ye do [H6213] ? will ye rebel [H4775] against the king [H4428] ?

2:20 Then answered [H7725] [H1697] I them, and said [H559] unto them, The God [H430] of heaven [H8064] , he will prosper [H6743] us; therefore we his servants [H5650] will arise [H6965] and build [H1129] : but ye have no portion [H2506] , nor right [H6666] , nor memorial [H2146] , in Jerusalem [H3389] .
