Nehemiah 2:5

“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.”

King James Version (KJV)

Nehemiah 2:5

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.
H2165
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. 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.
