016:Book 16


016: Nehemiah Book 16


016:Nehemiah 001:001
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,


016:001:002
That Hanani,
one of my brethren,
came,
he and certain men of Judah;
and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped,
which were left of the captivity,
and concerning Jerusalem.


016:001:003
And they said unto me,
The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach:
the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down,
and the gates thereof are burned with fire.


016:001:004
And it came to pass,
when I heard these words,
that I sat down and wept,
and mourned certain days,
and fasted,
and prayed before the God of heaven,


016:001:005
And said,
I beseech thee,
O LORD God of heaven,
the great and terrible God,
that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:


016:001:006
Let thine ear now be attentive,
and thine eyes open,
that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant,
which I pray before thee now,
day and night,
for the children of Israel thy servants,
and confess the sins of the children of Israel,
which we have sinned against thee:
both I and my father's house have sinned.


016:001:007
We have dealt very corruptly against thee,
and have not kept the commandments,
nor the statutes,
nor the judgments,
which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.


016:001:008
Remember,
I beseech thee,
the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses,
saying,
If ye transgress,
I will scatter you abroad among the nations:


016:001:009
But if ye turn unto me,
and keep my commandments,
and do them;
though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven,
yet will I gather them from thence,
and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.


016:001:010
Now these are thy servants and thy people,
whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power,
and by thy strong hand.


016:001:011
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 fear thy name:
and prosper,
I pray thee,
thy servant this day,
and grant him mercy in the sight of this man.
For I was the king's cupbearer.
