Teks -- Nehemiah 1:1-11 (NET)
A Prayer of Nehemiah1:1 These are the words of Nehemiah son of Hacaliah : It so happened that in the month of Kislev , in the twentieth year , I was in Susa the citadel . 1:2 Hanani , who was one of my relatives , along with some of the men from Judah , came to me , and I asked them about the Jews who had escaped and had survived the exile , and about Jerusalem . 1:3 They said to me, “The remnant that remains from the exile there in the province are experiencing considerable adversity and reproach . The wall of Jerusalem lies breached , and its gates have been burned down !” 1:4 When I heard these things I sat down abruptly, crying and mourning for several days . I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven . 1:5 Then I said , “Please , O LORD God of heaven , great and awesome God , who keeps his loving covenant with those who love him and obey his commandments , 1:6 may your ear be attentive and your eyes be open to hear the prayer of your servant that I am praying to you today throughout both day and night on behalf of your servants the Israelites . I am confessing the sins of the Israelites that we have committed against you– both I myself and my family have sinned . 1:7 We have behaved corruptly against you, not obeying the commandments , the statutes , and the judgments that you commanded your servant Moses . 1:8 Please recall the word you commanded your servant Moses : ‘If you act unfaithfully , I will scatter you among the nations . 1:9 But if you repent and obey my commandments and do them, then even if your dispersed people are in the most remote location , I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen for my name to reside .’ 1:10 They are your servants and your people , whom you have redeemed by your mighty strength and by your powerful hand . 1:11 Please , O Lord , listen attentively to the prayer of your servant and to the prayer of your servants who take pleasure in showing respect to your name . Grant your servant success today and show compassion to me in the presence of this man .” Now I was cupbearer for the king .
