Chapter 13

  1. 1. On that day
    H3117
    they read
    H7121
    in the book
    H5612
    of Moses
    H4872
    in the audience
    H241
    of the people;
    H5971
    and therein was found
    H4672
    written,
    H3789
    that the Ammonite
    H5984
    and the Moabite
    H4125
    should not come
    H935
    into the congregation
    H6951
    of God
    H430
    for
    H5704
    ever;
    H5769
  2. 2. Because they met
    H6923
    not the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    with bread
    H3899
    and with water,
    H4325
    but hired
    H7936
    Balaam
    H1109
    against them, that he should curse
    H7043
    them: howbeit our God
    H430
    turned
    H2015
    the curse
    H7045
    into a blessing.
    H1293
  3. 3. Now it came to pass, when they had heard
    H8085
    the law,
    H8451
    that they separated
    H914
    from Israel
    H3478
    all the mixed multitude.
    H6154
  4. 4. And before
    H6440
    this, Eliashib
    H475
    the priest,
    H3548
    having the oversight
    H5414
    of the chamber
    H3957
    of the house
    H1004
    of our God,
    H430
    was allied
    H7138
    unto Tobiah:
    H2900
  5. 5. And he had prepared
    H6213
    for him a great
    H1419
    chamber,
    H3957
    where aforetime
    H6440
    they laid
    H5414
    the meat offerings,
    H4503
    the frankincense,
    H3828
    and the vessels,
    H3627
    and the tithes
    H4643
    of the corn,
    H1715
    the new wine,
    H8492
    and the oil,
    H3323
    which was commanded
    H4687
    to be given to the Levites,
    H3881
    and the singers,
    H7891
    and the porters;
    H7778
    and the offerings
    H8641
    of the priests.
    H3548
  6. 6. But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem:
    H3389
    for in the two
    H8147
    and thirtieth
    H7970
    year
    H8141
    of Artaxerxes
    H783
    king
    H4428
    of Babylon
    H894
    came
    H935
    I unto the king,
    H4428
    and after
    H7093
    certain days
    H3117
    obtained I leave
    H7592
    of the king:
    H4428
  7. 7. And I came
    H935
    to Jerusalem,
    H3389
    and understood
    H995
    of the evil
    H7451
    that Eliashib
    H475
    did
    H6213
    for Tobiah,
    H2900
    in preparing
    H6213
    him a chamber
    H5393
    in the courts
    H2691
    of the house
    H1004
    of God.
    H430
  8. 8. And it grieved
    H3415
    me sore:
    H3966
    therefore I cast forth
    H7993
    all the household
    H1004
    stuff
    H3627
    of Tobiah
    H2900
    out of
    H2351
    the chamber.
    H3957
  9. 9. Then I commanded,
    H559
    and they cleansed
    H2891
    the chambers:
    H3957
    and thither brought I again
    H7725
    the vessels
    H3627
    of the house
    H1004
    of God,
    H430
    with the meat offering
    H4503
    and the frankincense.
    H3828
  10. 10. And I perceived
    H3045
    that the portions
    H4521
    of the Levites
    H3881
    had not been given
    H5414
    them: for the Levites
    H3881
    and the singers,
    H7891
    that did
    H6213
    the work,
    H4399
    were fled
    H1272
    every one
    H376
    to his field.
    H7704
  11. 11. Then contended
    H7378
    I with the rulers,
    H5461
    and said,
    H559
    Why is the house
    H1004
    of God
    H430
    forsaken?
    H5800
    And I gathered them together,
    H6908
    and set
    H5975
    them in their place.
    H5977
  12. 12. Then brought
    H935
    all Judah
    H3063
    the tithe
    H4643
    of the corn
    H1715
    and the new wine
    H8492
    and the oil
    H3323
    unto the treasuries.
    H214
  13. 13. And I made treasurers
    H686
    over the treasuries,
    H214
    Shelemiah
    H8018
    the priest,
    H3548
    and Zadok
    H6659
    the scribe,
    H5608
    and of the Levites,
    H3881
    Pedaiah:
    H6305
    and next to them
    H3027
    was Hanan
    H2605
    the son
    H1121
    of Zaccur,
    H2139
    the son
    H1121
    of Mattaniah:
    H4983
    for they were counted
    H2803
    faithful,
    H539
    and their office was to distribute
    H2505
    unto their brethren.
    H251
  14. 14. Remember
    H2142
    me, O my God,
    H430
    concerning this, and wipe not out
    H4229
    my good
    H2617
    deeds that I have done
    H6213
    for the house
    H1004
    of my God,
    H430
    and for the offices
    H4929
    thereof.
  15. 15. In those days
    H3117
    saw
    H7200
    I in Judah
    H3063
    some treading
    H1869
    wine presses
    H1660
    on the sabbath,
    H7676
    and bringing in
    H935
    sheaves,
    H6194
    and lading
    H6006
    asses;
    H2543
    as also wine,
    H3196
    grapes,
    H6025
    and figs,
    H8384
    and all manner of burdens,
    H4853
    which they brought
    H935
    into Jerusalem
    H3389
    on the sabbath
    H7676
    day:
    H3117
    and I testified
    H5749
    against them in the day
    H3117
    wherein they sold
    H4376
    victuals.
    H6718
  16. 16. There dwelt
    H3427
    men of Tyre
    H6876
    also therein, which brought
    H935
    fish,
    H1709
    H1709
    and all manner of ware,
    H4377
    and sold
    H4376
    on the sabbath
    H7676
    unto the children
    H1121
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and in Jerusalem.
    H3389
  17. 17. Then I contended
    H7378
    with the nobles
    H2715
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and said
    H559
    unto them, What evil
    H7451
    thing
    H1697
    is this that ye do,
    H6213
    and profane
    H2490
    the sabbath
    H7676
    day?
    H3117
  18. 18. Did
    H6213
    not your fathers
    H1
    thus, and did
    H935
    not our God
    H430
    bring
    H935
    all this evil
    H7451
    upon us, and upon this city?
    H5892
    yet ye bring
    H935
    more
    H3254
    wrath
    H2740
    upon Israel
    H3478
    by profaning
    H2490
    the sabbath.
    H7676
  19. 19. And it came to pass, that when the gates
    H8179
    of Jerusalem
    H3389
    began to be dark
    H6751
    before
    H6440
    the sabbath,
    H7676
    I commanded
    H559
    that the gates
    H1817
    should be shut,
    H5462
    and charged
    H559
    that they should not be opened
    H6605
    till after
    H310
    the sabbath:
    H7676
    and some of my servants
    H5288
    set
    H5975
    I at the gates,
    H8179
    that there should no burden
    H4853
    be brought in
    H935
    on the sabbath
    H7676
    day.
    H3117
  20. 20. So the merchants
    H7402
    and sellers
    H4376
    of all kind of ware
    H4465
    lodged
    H3885
    without
    H2351
    Jerusalem
    H3389
    once
    H6471
    or twice.
    H8147
  21. 21. Then I testified
    H5749
    against them, and said
    H559
    unto them, Why lodge
    H3885
    ye about
    H5048
    the wall?
    H2346
    if ye do so again,
    H8138
    I will lay
    H7971
    hands
    H3027
    on you. From that time
    H6256
    forth came
    H935
    they no more on the sabbath.
    H7676
  22. 22. And I commanded
    H559
    the Levites
    H3881
    that they should cleanse
    H2891
    themselves, and that they should come
    H935
    and keep
    H8104
    the gates,
    H8179
    to sanctify
    H6942
    the sabbath
    H7676
    day.
    H3117
    Remember
    H2142
    me, O my God,
    H430
    concerning this also, and spare
    H2347
    me according to the greatness
    H7230
    of thy mercy.
    H2617
  23. 23. In those days
    H3117
    also saw
    H7200
    I Jews
    H3064
    that had married
    H3427
    wives
    H802
    of Ashdod,
    H796
    of Ammon,
    H5984
    and of Moab:
    H4125
  24. 24. And their children
    H1121
    spake
    H1696
    half
    H2677
    in the speech of Ashdod,
    H797
    and could
    H5234
    not speak
    H1696
    in the Jews' language,
    H3066
    but according to the language
    H3956
    of each
    H5971
    people.
    H5971
  25. 25. And I contended
    H7378
    with them, and cursed
    H7043
    them, and smote
    H5221
    certain
    H582
    of them, and plucked off their hair,
    H4803
    and made them swear
    H7650
    by God,
    H430
    saying, Ye shall not give
    H5414
    your daughters
    H1323
    unto their sons,
    H1121
    nor take
    H5375
    their daughters
    H1323
    unto your sons,
    H1121
    or for yourselves.
  26. 26. Did not Solomon
    H8010
    king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    sin
    H2398
    by these things? yet among many
    H7227
    nations
    H1471
    was there no king
    H4428
    like him, who was beloved
    H157
    of his God,
    H430
    and God
    H430
    made
    H5414
    him king
    H4428
    over all Israel:
    H3478
    nevertheless even him
    H1571
    did outlandish
    H5237
    women
    H802
    cause to sin.
    H2398
  27. 27. Shall we then hearken
    H8085
    unto you to do
    H6213
    all this great
    H1419
    evil,
    H7451
    to transgress
    H4603
    against our God
    H430
    in marrying
    H3427
    strange
    H5237
    wives?
    H802
  28. 28. And one of the sons
    H1121
    of Joiada,
    H3111
    the son
    H1121
    of Eliashib
    H475
    the high
    H1419
    priest,
    H3548
    was son in law
    H2860
    to Sanballat
    H5571
    the Horonite:
    H2772
    therefore I chased
    H1272
    him from me.
  29. 29. Remember
    H2142
    them, O my God,
    H430
    because they have defiled
    H1352
    the priesthood,
    H3550
    and the covenant
    H1285
    of the priesthood,
    H3550
    and of the Levites.
    H3881
  30. 30. Thus cleansed
    H2891
    I them from all strangers,
    H5236
    and appointed
    H5975
    the wards
    H4931
    of the priests
    H3548
    and the Levites,
    H3881
    every one
    H376
    in his business;
    H4399
  31. 31. And for the wood
    H6086
    offering,
    H7133
    at times
    H6256
    appointed,
    H2163
    and for the firstfruits.
    H1061
    Remember
    H2142
    me, O my God,
    H430
    for good.
