Chapter 2

  1. 1. And it came to pass in the month
    H2320
    Nisan,
    H5212
    in the twentieth
    H6242
    year
    H8141
    of Artaxerxes
    H783
    the king,
    H4428
    that wine
    H3196
    was before
    H6440
    him: and I took up
    H5375
    the wine,
    H3196
    and gave
    H5414
    it unto the king.
    H4428
    Now I had not been beforetime sad
    H7451
    in his presence.
    H6440
  2. 2. Wherefore the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto me, Why is thy countenance
    H6440
    sad,
    H7451
    seeing thou art not sick?
    H2470
    this is nothing else but sorrow
    H7455
    of heart.
    H3820
    Then I was very
    H3966
    sore
    H7235
    afraid,
    H3372
  3. 3. And said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    Let the king
    H4428
    live
    H2421
    for ever:
    H5769
    why should not my countenance
    H6440
    be sad,
    H3415
    when the city,
    H5892
    the place
    H1004
    of my fathers'
    H1
    sepulchres,
    H6913
    lieth waste,
    H2720
    and the gates
    H8179
    thereof are consumed
    H398
    with fire?
    H784
  4. 4. Then the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto me, For what dost thou make request?
    H1245
    So I prayed
    H6419
    to the God
    H430
    of heaven.
    H8064
  5. 5. And I said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    If it please
    H2895
    the king,
    H4428
    and if thy servant
    H5650
    have found favour
    H3190
    in thy sight,
    H6440
    that thou wouldest send
    H7971
    me unto Judah,
    H3063
    unto the city
    H5892
    of my fathers'
    H1
    sepulchres,
    H6913
    that I may build
    H1129
    it.
  6. 6. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto me, (the queen
    H7694
    also sitting
    H3427
    by him,)
    H681
    For how long shall thy journey
    H4109
    be? and when wilt thou return?
    H7725
    So it pleased
    H3190
    H6440
    the king
    H4428
    to send
    H7971
    me; and I set
    H5414
    him a time.
    H2165
  7. 7. Moreover I said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    If it please
    H2895
    the king,
    H4428
    let letters
    H107
    be given
    H5414
    me to the governors
    H6346
    beyond
    H5676
    the river,
    H5104
    that they may convey me over
    H5674
    till I come
    H935
    into Judah;
    H3063
  8. 8. And a letter
    H107
    unto Asaph
    H623
    the keeper
    H8104
    of the king's
    H4428
    forest,
    H6508
    that he may give
    H5414
    me timber
    H6086
    to make beams
    H7136
    for the gates
    H8179
    of the palace
    H1002
    which appertained to the house,
    H1004
    and for the wall
    H2346
    of the city,
    H5892
    and for the house
    H1004
    that I shall enter into.
    H935
    And the king
    H4428
    granted
    H5414
    me, according to the good
    H2896
    hand
    H3027
    of my God
    H430
    upon me.
  9. 9. Then I came
    H935
    to the governors
    H6346
    beyond
    H5676
    the river,
    H5104
    and gave
    H5414
    them the king's
    H4428
    letters.
    H107
    Now the king
    H4428
    had sent
    H7971
    captains
    H8269
    of the army
    H2428
    and horsemen
    H6571
    with me.
  10. 10. When Sanballat
    H5571
    the Horonite,
    H2772
    and Tobiah
    H2900
    the servant,
    H5650
    the Ammonite,
    H5984
    heard
    H8085
    of it, it grieved
    H3415
    them exceedingly
    H1419
    that
    H7451
    there was come
    H935
    a man
    H120
    to seek
    H1245
    the welfare
    H2896
    of the children
    H1121
    of Israel.
    H3478
  11. 11. So I came
    H935
    to Jerusalem,
    H3389
    and was there three
    H7969
    days.
    H3117
  12. 12. And I arose
    H6965
    in the night,
    H3915
    I and some
    H4592
    few
    H4592
    men
    H582
    with me; neither told
    H5046
    I any man
    H120
    what my God
    H430
    had put
    H5414
    in my heart
    H3820
    to do
    H6213
    at Jerusalem:
    H3389
    neither was there any beast
    H929
    with me, save the beast
    H929
    that I rode upon.
    H7392
  13. 13. And I went out
    H3318
    by night
    H3915
    by the gate
    H8179
    of the valley,
    H1516
    even before
    H6440
    the dragon
    H8577
    well,
    H5869
    H5886
    and to the dung
    H830
    port,
    H8179
    and viewed
    H7663
    H7665
    the walls
    H2346
    of Jerusalem,
    H3389
    which were broken down,
    H6555
    and the gates
    H8179
    thereof were consumed
    H398
    with fire.
    H784
  14. 14. Then I went on
    H5674
    to the gate
    H8179
    of the fountain,
    H5869
    and to the king's
    H4428
    pool:
    H1295
    but there was no place
    H4725
    for the beast
    H929
    that was under me to pass.
    H5674
  15. 15. Then went I up
    H5927
    in the night
    H3915
    by the brook,
    H5158
    and viewed
    H7663
    H7665
    the wall,
    H2346
    and turned back,
    H7725
    and entered
    H935
    by the gate
    H8179
    of the valley,
    H1516
    and so returned.
    H7725
  16. 16. And the rulers
    H5461
    knew
    H3045
    not whither I went,
    H1980
    or what I did;
    H6213
    neither had I as yet
    H3651
    told
    H5046
    it to the Jews,
    H3064
    nor to the priests,
    H3548
    nor to the nobles,
    H2715
    nor to the rulers,
    H5461
    nor to the rest
    H3499
    that did
    H6213
    the work.
    H4399
  17. 17. Then said
    H559
    I unto them, Ye see
    H7200
    the distress
    H7451
    that we are in, how Jerusalem
    H3389
    lieth waste,
    H2720
    and the gates
    H8179
    thereof are burned
    H3341
    with fire:
    H784
    come,
    H3212
    and let us build up
    H1129
    the wall
    H2346
    of Jerusalem,
    H3389
    that we be no more a reproach.
    H2781
  18. 18. Then I told
    H5046
    them of the hand
    H3027
    of my God
    H430
    which was good
    H2896
    upon me; as also the king's
    H4428
    words
    H1697
    that he had spoken
    H559
    unto me. And they said,
    H559
    Let us rise up
    H6965
    and build.
    H1129
    So they strengthened
    H2388
    their hands
    H3027
    for this good
    H2896
    work.
  19. 19. But when Sanballat
    H5571
    the Horonite,
    H2772
    and Tobiah
    H2900
    the servant,
    H5650
    the Ammonite,
    H5984
    and Geshem
    H1654
    the Arabian,
    H6163
    heard
    H8085
    it, they laughed us to scorn,
    H3932
    and despised
    H959
    us, and said,
    H559
    What is this thing
    H1697
    that ye do?
    H6213
    will ye rebel
    H4775
    against the king?
    H4428
  20. 20. Then answered
    H7725
    H1697
    I them, and said
    H559
    unto them, The God
    H430
    of heaven,
    H8064
    he will prosper
    H6743
    us; therefore we his servants
    H5650
    will arise
    H6965
    and build:
    H1129
    but ye have no portion,
    H2506
    nor right,
    H6666
    nor memorial,
    H2146
    in Jerusalem.
    H3389
