9:1 Now in the twenty [H6242] and fourth [H702] day [H3117] of this month [H2320] the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] were assembled [H622] with fasting [H6685] , and with sackclothes [H8242] , and earth [H127] upon them.

9:2 And the seed [H2233] of Israel [H3478] separated [H914] themselves from all strangers [H1121] [H5236] , and stood [H5975] and confessed [H3034] their sins [H2403] , and the iniquities [H5771] of their fathers [H1] .(strangers: Heb. strange children)

9:3 And they stood up [H6965] in their place [H5977] , and read [H7121] in the book [H5612] of the law [H8451] of the LORD [H3068] their God [H430] [one] fourth part [H7243] of the day [H3117] ; and [another] fourth part [H7243] they confessed [H3034] , and worshipped [H7812] the LORD [H3068] their God [H430] .

9:4 Then stood up [H6965] upon the stairs [H4608] , of the Levites [H3881] , Jeshua [H3442] , and Bani [H1137] , Kadmiel [H6934] , Shebaniah [H7645] , Bunni [H1138] , Sherebiah [H8274] , Bani [H1137] , [and] Chenani [H3662] , and cried [H2199] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] unto the LORD [H3068] their God [H430] .(stairs: or, scaffold)

9:5 Then the Levites [H3881] , Jeshua [H3442] , and Kadmiel [H6934] , Bani [H1137] , Hashabniah [H2813] , Sherebiah [H8274] , Hodijah [H1941] , Shebaniah [H7645] , [and] Pethahiah [H6611] , said [H559] , Stand up [H6965] [and] bless [H1288] the LORD [H3068] your God [H430] for ever [H5769] and ever [H5769] : and blessed [H1288] be thy glorious [H3519] name [H8034] , which is exalted [H7311] above all blessing [H1293] and praise [H8416] .

9:6 Thou, [even] thou, [art] LORD [H3068] alone; thou hast made [H6213] heaven [H8064] , the heaven [H8064] of heavens [H8064] , with all their host [H6635] , the earth [H776] , and all [things] that [are] therein, the seas [H3220] , and all that [is] therein, and thou preservest [H2421] them all; and the host [H6635] of heaven [H8064] worshippeth [H7812] thee.

9:7 Thou [art] the LORD [H3068] the God [H430] , who didst choose [H977] Abram [H87] , and broughtest him forth [H3318] out of Ur [H218] of the Chaldees [H3778] , and gavest [H7760] him the name [H8034] of Abraham [H85] ;

9:8 And foundest [H4672] his heart [H3824] faithful [H539] before [H6440] thee, and madest [H3772] a covenant [H1285] with him to give [H5414] the land [H776] of the Canaanites [H3669] , the Hittites [H2850] , the Amorites [H567] , and the Perizzites [H6522] , and the Jebusites [H2983] , and the Girgashites [H1622] , to give [H5414] [it, I say], to his seed [H2233] , and hast performed [H6965] thy words [H1697] ; for thou [art] righteous [H6662] :

9:9 And didst see [H7200] the affliction [H6040] of our fathers [H1] in Egypt [H4714] , and heardest [H8085] their cry [H2201] by the Red [H5488] sea [H3220] ;

9:10 And shewedst [H5414] signs [H226] and wonders [H4159] upon Pharaoh [H6547] , and on all his servants [H5650] , and on all the people [H5971] of his land [H776] : for thou knewest [H3045] that they dealt proudly [H2102] against them. So didst thou get [H6213] thee a name [H8034] , as [it is] this day [H3117] .

9:11 And thou didst divide [H1234] the sea [H3220] before [H6440] them, so that they went through [H5674] the midst [H8432] of the sea [H3220] on the dry land [H3004] ; and their persecutors [H7291] thou threwest [H7993] into the deeps [H4688] , as a stone [H68] into the mighty [H5794] waters [H4325] .

9:12 Moreover thou leddest [H5148] them in the day [H3119] by a cloudy [H6051] pillar [H5982] ; and in the night [H3915] by a pillar [H5982] of fire [H784] , to give them light [H215] in the way [H1870] wherein they should go [H3212] .

9:13 Thou camest down [H3381] also upon mount [H2022] Sinai [H5514] , and spakest [H1696] with them from heaven [H8064] , and gavest [H5414] them right [H3477] judgments [H4941] , and true [H571] laws [H8451] , good [H2896] statutes [H2706] and commandments [H4687] :(true: Heb. laws of truth)

9:14 And madest known [H3045] unto them thy holy [H6944] sabbath [H7676] , and commandedst [H6680] them precepts [H4687] , statutes [H2706] , and laws [H8451] , by the hand [H3027] of Moses [H4872] thy servant [H5650] :

9:15 And gavest [H5414] them bread [H3899] from heaven [H8064] for their hunger [H7458] , and broughtest forth [H3318] water [H4325] for them out of the rock [H5553] for their thirst [H6772] , and promisedst [H559] them that they should go in [H935] to possess [H3423] the land [H776] which thou hadst sworn [H3027] [H5375] to give [H5414] them.(which: Heb. which thou hadst lift up thine hand to give them)

9:16 But they and our fathers [H1] dealt proudly [H2102] , and hardened [H7185] their necks [H6203] , and hearkened [H8085] not to thy commandments [H4687] ,

9:17 And refused [H3985] to obey [H8085] , neither were mindful [H2142] of thy wonders [H6381] that thou didst [H6213] among them; but hardened [H7185] their necks [H6203] , and in their rebellion [H4805] appointed [H5414] a captain [H7218] to return [H7725] to their bondage [H5659] : but thou [art] a God [H433] ready to pardon [H5547] , gracious [H2587] and merciful [H7349] , slow [H750] to anger [H639] , and of great [H7227] kindness [H2617] , and forsookest [H5800] them not.(a God: Heb. a God of pardons)

9:18 Yea, when they had made [H6213] them a molten [H4541] calf [H5695] , and said [H559] , This [is] thy God [H430] that brought thee up [H5927] out of Egypt [H4714] , and had wrought [H6213] great [H1419] provocations [H5007] ;

9:19 Yet thou in thy manifold [H7227] mercies [H7356] forsookest [H5800] them not in the wilderness [H4057] : the pillar [H5982] of the cloud [H6051] departed [H5493] not from them by day [H3119] , to lead [H5148] them in the way [H1870] ; neither the pillar [H5982] of fire [H784] by night [H3915] , to shew them light [H215] , and the way [H1870] wherein they should go [H3212] .

9:20 Thou gavest [H5414] also thy good [H2896] spirit [H7307] to instruct [H7919] them, and withheldest [H4513] not thy manna [H4478] from their mouth [H6310] , and gavest [H5414] them water [H4325] for their thirst [H6772] .

9:21 Yea, forty [H705] years [H8141] didst thou sustain [H3557] them in the wilderness [H4057] , [so that] they lacked [H2637] nothing; their clothes [H8008] waxed not old [H1086] , and their feet [H7272] swelled [H1216] not.

9:22 Moreover thou gavest [H5414] them kingdoms [H4467] and nations [H5971] , and didst divide [H2505] them into corners [H6285] : so they possessed [H3423] the land [H776] of Sihon [H5511] , and the land [H776] of the king [H4428] of Heshbon [H2809] , and the land [H776] of Og [H5747] king [H4428] of Bashan [H1316] .

9:23 Their children [H1121] also multipliedst [H7235] thou as the stars [H3556] of heaven [H8064] , and broughtest [H935] them into the land [H776] , concerning which thou hadst promised [H559] to their fathers [H1] , that they should go in [H935] to possess [H3423] [it].

9:24 So the children [H1121] went in [H935] and possessed [H3423] the land [H776] , and thou subduedst [H3665] before [H6440] them the inhabitants [H3427] of the land [H776] , the Canaanites [H3669] , and gavest [H5414] them into their hands [H3027] , with their kings [H4428] , and the people [H5971] of the land [H776] , that they might do [H6213] with them as they would [H7522] .(as they: Heb. according to their will)

9:25 And they took [H3920] strong [H1219] cities [H5892] , and a fat [H8082] land [H127] , and possessed [H3423] houses [H1004] full [H4392] of all goods [H2898] , wells [H953] digged [H2672] , vineyards [H3754] , and oliveyards [H2132] , and fruit [H3978] trees [H6086] in abundance [H7230] : so they did eat [H398] , and were filled [H7646] , and became fat [H8080] , and delighted [H5727] themselves in thy great [H1419] goodness [H2898] .(wells: or, cisterns)(fruit: Heb. tree of food)

9:26 Nevertheless they were disobedient [H4784] , and rebelled [H4775] against thee, and cast [H7993] thy law [H8451] behind [H310] their backs [H1458] , and slew [H2026] thy prophets [H5030] which testified [H5749] against them to turn [H7725] them to thee, and they wrought [H6213] great [H1419] provocations [H5007] .

9:27 Therefore thou deliveredst [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] of their enemies [H6862] , who vexed [H6887] them: and in the time [H6256] of their trouble [H6869] , when they cried [H6817] unto thee, thou heardest [H8085] [them] from heaven [H8064] ; and according to thy manifold [H7227] mercies [H7356] thou gavest [H5414] them saviours [H3467] , who saved [H3467] them out of the hand [H3027] of their enemies [H6862] .

9:28 But after they had rest [H5117] , they did [H6213] evil [H7451] again [H7725] before [H6440] thee: therefore leftest [H5800] thou them in the hand [H3027] of their enemies [H341] , so that they had the dominion [H7287] over them: yet when they returned [H7725] , and cried [H2199] unto thee, thou heardest [H8085] [them] from heaven [H8064] ; and many [H7227] times [H6256] didst thou deliver [H5337] them according to thy mercies [H7356] ;(they did: Heb. they returned to do evil)

9:29 And testifiedst [H5749] against them, that thou mightest bring them again [H7725] unto thy law [H8451] : yet they dealt proudly [H2102] , and hearkened [H8085] not unto thy commandments [H4687] , but sinned [H2398] against thy judgments [H4941] , (which if a man [H120] do [H6213] , he shall live [H2421] in them;) and withdrew [H5414] [H5637] the shoulder [H3802] , and hardened [H7185] their neck [H6203] , and would not hear [H8085] .(withdrew: Heb. they gave a withdrawing shoulder)

9:30 Yet many [H7227] years [H8141] didst thou forbear [H4900] them, and testifiedst [H5749] against them by thy spirit [H7307] in [H3027] thy prophets [H5030] : yet would they not give ear [H238] : therefore gavest [H5414] thou them into the hand [H3027] of the people [H5971] of the lands [H776] .(forbear: Heb. protract over them)(in thy: Heb. in the hand of thy prophets)

9:31 Nevertheless for thy great [H7227] mercies' [H7356] sake thou didst [H6213] not utterly consume [H3617] them, nor forsake [H5800] them; for thou [art] a gracious [H2587] and merciful [H7349] God [H410] .

9:32 Now therefore, our God [H430] , the great [H1419] , the mighty [H1368] , and the terrible [H3372] God [H410] , who keepest [H8104] covenant [H1285] and mercy [H2617] , let not all the trouble [H8513] seem little [H4591] before [H6440] thee, that hath come [H4672] upon us, on our kings [H4428] , on our princes [H8269] , and on our priests [H3548] , and on our prophets [H5030] , and on our fathers [H1] , and on all thy people [H5971] , since the time [H3117] of the kings [H4428] of Assyria [H804] unto this day [H3117] .(trouble: Heb. weariness)(that: Heb. that hath found us)

9:33 Howbeit thou [art] just [H6662] in all that is brought [H935] upon us; for thou hast done [H6213] right [H571] , but we have done wickedly [H7561] :

9:34 Neither have our kings [H4428] , our princes [H8269] , our priests [H3548] , nor our fathers [H1] , kept [H6213] thy law [H8451] , nor hearkened [H7181] unto thy commandments [H4687] and thy testimonies [H5715] , wherewith thou didst testify [H5749] against them.

9:35 For they have not served [H5647] thee in their kingdom [H4438] , and in thy great [H7227] goodness [H2898] that thou gavest [H5414] them, and in the large [H7342] and fat [H8082] land [H776] which thou gavest [H5414] before [H6440] them, neither turned [H7725] they from their wicked [H7451] works [H4611] .

9:36 Behold, we [are] servants [H5650] this day [H3117] , and [for] the land [H776] that thou gavest [H5414] unto our fathers [H1] to eat [H398] the fruit [H6529] thereof and the good [H2898] thereof, behold, we [are] servants [H5650] in it:

9:37 And it yieldeth much [H7235] increase [H8393] unto the kings [H4428] whom thou hast set [H5414] over us because of our sins [H2403] : also they have dominion [H4910] over our bodies [H1472] , and over our cattle [H929] , at their pleasure [H7522] , and we [are] in great [H1419] distress [H6869] .

9:38 And because of all this we make [H3772] a sure [H548] [covenant], and write [H3789] [it]; and our princes [H8269] , Levites [H3881] , [and] priests [H3548] , seal [H2856] [unto it].(seal: Heb. are at the sealing, or, sealed)
