Chapter 5

  1. 1. And there was a great
    H1419
    cry
    H6818
    of the people
    H5971
    and of their wives
    H802
    against their brethren
    H251
    the Jews.
    H3064
  2. 2. For there were
    H3426
    that said,
    H559
    We, our sons,
    H1121
    and our daughters,
    H1323
    are many:
    H7227
    therefore we take up
    H3947
    corn
    H1715
    for them, that we may eat,
    H398
    and live.
    H2421
  3. 3. Some also there were
    H3426
    that said,
    H559
    We have mortgaged
    H6148
    our lands,
    H7704
    vineyards,
    H3754
    and houses,
    H1004
    that we might buy
    H3947
    corn,
    H1715
    because of the dearth.
    H7458
  4. 4. There were
    H3426
    also that said,
    H559
    We have borrowed
    H3867
    money
    H3701
    for the king's
    H4428
    tribute,
    H4060
    and that upon our lands
    H7704
    and vineyards.
    H3754
  5. 5. Yet now our flesh
    H1320
    is as the flesh
    H1320
    of our brethren,
    H251
    our children
    H1121
    as their children:
    H1121
    and, lo, we bring into bondage
    H3533
    our sons
    H1121
    and our daughters
    H1323
    to be servants,
    H5650
    and some of our daughters
    H1323
    are
    H3426
    brought unto bondage
    H3533
    already: neither is it in our power
    H3027
    to
    H410
    redeem them
    ; for other men
    H312
    have our lands
    H7704
    and vineyards.
    H3754
  6. 6. And I was very
    H3966
    angry
    H2734
    when I heard
    H8085
    their cry
    H2201
    and these words.
    H1697
  7. 7. Then I consulted
    H4427
    with myself,
    H3820
    and I rebuked
    H7378
    the nobles,
    H2715
    and the rulers,
    H5461
    and said
    H559
    unto them, Ye exact
    H5378
    H5383
    H5375
    usury,
    H4855
    every one
    H376
    of his brother.
    H251
    And I set
    H5414
    a great
    H1419
    assembly
    H6952
    against them.
  8. 8. And I said
    H559
    unto them, We after our ability
    H1767
    have redeemed
    H7069
    our brethren
    H251
    the Jews,
    H3064
    which were sold
    H4376
    unto the heathen;
    H1471
    and will ye even sell
    H4376
    your brethren?
    H251
    or shall they be sold
    H4376
    unto us? Then held they their peace,
    H2790
    and found
    H4672
    nothing
    H1697
    to answer.
  9. 9. Also I said,
    H559
    It is not good
    H2896
    that
    H1697
    ye do:
    H6213
    ought ye not to walk
    H3212
    in the fear
    H3374
    of our God
    H430
    because of the reproach
    H2781
    of the heathen
    H1471
    our enemies?
    H341
  10. 10. I likewise, and my brethren,
    H251
    and my servants,
    H5288
    might exact
    H5383
    of them money
    H3701
    and corn:
    H1715
    I pray you, let us leave off
    H5800
    this usury.
    H4855
  11. 11. Restore,
    H7725
    I pray you, to them, even this day,
    H3117
    their lands,
    H7704
    their vineyards,
    H3754
    their oliveyards,
    H2132
    and their houses,
    H1004
    also the hundredth
    H3967
    part of the money,
    H3701
    and of the corn,
    H1715
    the wine,
    H8492
    and the oil,
    H3323
    that ye exact
    H5383
    of them.
  12. 12. Then said
    H559
    they, We will restore
    H7725
    them, and will require
    H1245
    nothing of them; so will we do
    H6213
    as thou sayest.
    H559
    Then I called
    H7121
    the priests,
    H3548
    and took an oath
    H7650
    of them, that they should do
    H6213
    according to this promise.
    H1697
  13. 13. Also I shook
    H5287
    my lap,
    H2684
    and said,
    H559
    So God
    H430
    shake out
    H5287
    every man
    H376
    from his house,
    H1004
    and from his labour,
    H3018
    that performeth
    H6965
    not this promise,
    H1697
    even thus be he shaken out,
    H5287
    and emptied.
    H7386
    And all the congregation
    H6951
    said,
    H559
    Amen,
    H543
    and praised
    H1984
    the LORD.
    H3068
    And the people
    H5971
    did
    H6213
    according to this promise.
    H1697
  14. 14. Moreover from the time
    H3117
    that I was appointed
    H6680
    to be their governor
    H6346
    in the land
    H776
    of Judah,
    H3063
    from the twentieth
    H6242
    year
    H8141
    even unto the two
    H8147
    and thirtieth
    H7970
    year
    H8141
    of Artaxerxes
    H783
    the king,
    H4428
    that is, twelve
    H6240
    H8147
    years,
    H8141
    I and my brethren
    H251
    have not eaten
    H398
    the bread
    H3899
    of the governor.
    H6346
  15. 15. But the former
    H7223
    governors
    H6346
    that had been before
    H6440
    me were chargeable
    H3513
    unto the people,
    H5971
    and had taken
    H3947
    of them bread
    H3899
    and wine,
    H3196
    beside
    H310
    forty
    H705
    shekels
    H8255
    of silver;
    H3701
    yea, even
    H1571
    their servants
    H5288
    bare rule
    H7980
    over the people:
    H5971
    but so did
    H6213
    not I, because
    H6440
    of the fear
    H3374
    of God.
    H430
  16. 16. Yea, also I continued
    H2388
    in the work
    H4399
    of this wall,
    H2346
    neither bought
    H7069
    we any land:
    H7704
    and all my servants
    H5288
    were gathered
    H6908
    thither unto the work.
    H4399
  17. 17. Moreover there were at my table
    H7979
    an hundred
    H3967
    and fifty
    H376
    of
    H2572
    the Jews
    H3064
    and rulers,
    H5461
    beside those that came
    H935
    unto us from among the heathen
    H1471
    that are about us.
    H5439
  18. 18. Now that which was prepared
    H6213
    for me daily
    H3117
    was one
    H259
    ox
    H7794
    and six
    H8337
    choice
    H1305
    sheep;
    H6629
    also fowls
    H6833
    were prepared
    H6213
    for me, and once in ten
    H6235
    days
    H3117
    store
    H7235
    of all sorts of wine:
    H3196
    yet for all
    H5973
    this required
    H1245
    not I the bread
    H3899
    of the governor,
    H6346
    because the bondage
    H5656
    was heavy
    H3513
    upon this people.
    H5971
  19. 19. Think
    H2142
    upon me, my God,
    H430
    for good,
    H2896
    according to all that I have done
    H6213
    for this people.
    H5971
