6:1 Now it came to pass, when Sanballat [H5571] , and Tobiah [H2900] , and Geshem [H1654] the Arabian [H6163] , and the rest [H3499] of our enemies [H341] , heard [H8085] that I had builded [H1129] the wall [H2346] , and [that] there was no breach [H6556] left [H3498] therein; (though [H1571] [H5704] at that time [H6256] I had not set up [H5975] the doors [H1817] upon the gates [H8179] ;)
6:2 That Sanballat [H5571] and Geshem [H1654] sent [H7971] unto me, saying [H559] , Come [H3212] , let us meet [H3259] together [H3162] in [some one of] the villages [H3715] in the plain [H1237] of Ono [H207] . But they thought [H2803] to do [H6213] me mischief [H7451] .
6:3 And I sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] unto them, saying [H559] , I [am] doing [H6213] a great [H1419] work [H4399] , so that I cannot [H3201] come down [H3381] : why should the work [H4399] cease [H7673] , whilst [H834] I leave [H7503] it, and come down [H3381] to you?
6:4 Yet they sent [H7971] unto me four [H702] times [H6471] after this sort [H1697] ; and I answered [H7725] them after the same manner [H1697] .
6:5 Then sent [H7971] Sanballat [H5571] his servant [H5288] unto me in like manner [H1697] the fifth [H2549] time [H6471] with an open [H6605] letter [H107] in his hand [H3027] ;
6:6 Wherein [was] written [H3789] , It is reported [H8085] among the heathen [H1471] , and Gashmu [H1654] saith [H559] [it, that] thou and the Jews [H3064] think [H2803] to rebel [H4775] : for which cause [H3651] thou buildest [H1129] the wall [H2346] , that thou mayest be [H1933] their king [H4428] , according to these words [H1697] .(Gashmu: or, Geshem)
6:7 And thou hast also appointed [H5975] prophets [H5030] to preach [H7121] of thee at Jerusalem [H3389] , saying [H559] , [There is] a king [H4428] in Judah [H3063] : and now shall it be reported [H8085] to the king [H4428] according to these words [H1697] . Come [H3212] now therefore, and let us take counsel [H3289] together [H3162] .
6:8 Then I sent [H7971] unto him, saying [H559] , There are [H1961] no such things [H1697] done [H1961] as thou sayest [H559] , but thou feignest [H908] them out of thine own heart [H3820] .
6:9 For they all made us afraid [H3372] , saying [H559] , Their hands [H3027] shall be weakened [H7503] from the work [H4399] , that it be not done [H6213] . Now therefore, [O God], strengthen [H2388] my hands [H3027] .
6:10 Afterward I came [H935] unto the house [H1004] of Shemaiah [H8098] the son [H1121] of Delaiah [H1806] the son [H1121] of Mehetabeel [H4105] , who [was] shut up [H6113] ; and he said [H559] , Let us meet together [H3259] in the house [H1004] of God [H430] , within [H8432] the temple [H1964] , and let us shut [H5462] the doors [H1817] of the temple [H1964] : for they will come [H935] to slay [H2026] thee; yea, in the night [H3915] will they come [H935] to slay [H2026] thee.
6:11 And I said [H559] , Should such [H3644] a man [H376] as I flee [H1272] ? and who [is there], that, [being] as I [am], would go [H935] into the temple [H1964] to save his life [H2425] ? I will not go in [H935] .
6:12 And, lo, I perceived [H5234] that God [H430] had not sent [H7971] him; but that he pronounced [H1696] this prophecy [H5016] against me: for Tobiah [H2900] and Sanballat [H5571] had hired [H7936] him.
6:13 Therefore [was] he hired [H7936] , that I should be afraid [H3372] , and do so [H6213] , and sin [H2398] , and [that] they might have [matter] for an evil [H7451] report [H8034] , that they might reproach [H2778] me.
6:14 My God [H430] , think [H2142] thou upon Tobiah [H2900] and Sanballat [H5571] according to these their works [H4639] , and on the prophetess [H5031] Noadiah [H5129] , and the rest [H3499] of the prophets [H5030] , that would have put me in fear [H3372] .
6:15 So the wall [H2346] was finished [H7999] in the twenty [H6242] and fifth [H2568] [day] of [the month] Elul [H435] , in fifty [H2572] and two [H8147] days [H3117] .
6:16 And it came to pass, that when all our enemies [H341] heard [H8085] [thereof], and all the heathen [H1471] that [were] about us [H5439] saw [H7200] [these things], they were much [H3966] cast down [H5307] in their own eyes [H5869] : for they perceived [H3045] that this work [H4399] was wrought [H6213] of our God [H430] .
6:17 Moreover in those days [H3117] the nobles [H2715] of Judah [H3063] sent [H1980] many [H7235] letters [H107] unto Tobiah [H2900] , and [the letters] of Tobiah [H2900] came [H935] unto them.(sent: Heb. multiplied their letters passing to Tobiah)
6:18 For [there were] many [H7227] in Judah [H3063] sworn [H1167] [H7621] unto him, because he [was] the son in law [H2860] of Shechaniah [H7935] the son [H1121] of Arah [H733] ; and his son [H1121] Johanan [H3076] had taken [H3947] the daughter [H1323] of Meshullam [H4918] the son [H1121] of Berechiah [H1296] .
6:19 Also they reported [H559] his good deeds [H2896] before [H6440] me, and uttered [H3318] my words [H1697] to him. [And] Tobiah [H2900] sent [H7971] letters [H107] to put me in fear [H3372] .(words: or, matters)
