“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?

King James Version (KJV)

Nehemiah 2:3

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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
