  1. 1. And all the people

    gathered themselves together
    H622
    as one
    H259
    man
    H376
    into the street
    H7339
    that was before

    H8179
    and they spake
    H559
    unto Ezra
    H5830
    the scribe
    H5608
    to bring
    H935
    the book
    H5612
    of the law
    H8451
    of Moses,
    H4872
    which the LORD
    H3068
    had commanded
    H6680

    the priest
    H3548
    brought
    H935

    H8451
    before
    H6440
    the congregation
    H6951
    both of men
    H376
    and women,
    H802
    and all that could hear
    H8085
    with understanding,
    H995
    upon the first
    H259
    day
    H3117
    of the seventh
    H7637
    month.
    H2320
  3. 3. And he read
    H7121
    therein before
    H6440
    the street
    H7339
    that was before
    H6440
    the water
    H4325
    gate
    H8179
    from the morning
    H216
    until midday,
    H3117
    H4276
    before the men
    H582
    and the women,
    H802
    and those that could understand;
    H995
    and the ears
    H241
    of all the people
    H5971
    were attentive unto the book
    H5612
    of the law.
    H8451
  4. 4. And Ezra
    H5830
    the scribe
    H5608
    stood
    H5975
    upon a pulpit
    H4026
    of wood,
    H6086
    which they had made
    H6213
    for the purpose;
    H1697
    and beside
    H681
    him stood
    H5975
    Mattithiah,
    H4993
    and Shema,
    H8087
    and Anaiah,
    H6043
    and Urijah,
    H223
    and Hilkiah,
    H2518
    and Maaseiah,
    H4641
    on his right hand;
    H3225
    and on his left hand,
    H8040
    Pedaiah,
    H6305
    and Mishael,
    H4332
    and Malchiah,
    H4441
    and Hashum,
    H2828
    and Hashbadana,
    H2806
    Zechariah,
    H2148
    and Meshullam.
    H4918
  5. 5. And Ezra
    H5830
    opened
    H6605
    the book
    H5612
    in the sight
    H5869
    of all the people;
    H5971
    (for he was above all the people;)
    H5971
    and when he opened
    H6605
    it, all the people
    H5971
    stood up:
    H5975
  6. 6. And Ezra
    H5830
    blessed
    H1288
    the LORD,
    H3068
    the great
    H1419
    God.
    H430
    And all the people
    H5971
    answered,
    H6030
    Amen,
    H543
    Amen,
    H543
    with lifting up
    H4607
    their hands:
    H3027
    and they bowed
    H6915
    their heads, and worshipped
    H7812
    the LORD
    H3068
    with their faces
    H639
    to the ground.
    H776
  7. 7. Also Jeshua,
    H3442
    and Bani,
    H1137
    and Sherebiah,
    H8274
    Jamin,
    H3226
    Akkub,
    H6126
    Shabbethai,
    H7678
    Hodijah,
    H1941
    Maaseiah,
    H4641
    Kelita,
    H7042
    Azariah,
    H5838
    Jozabad,
    H3107
    Hanan,
    H2605
    Pelaiah,
    H6411
    and the Levites,
    H3881
    caused the people
    H5971
    to understand
    H995
    the law:
    H8451
    and the people
    H5971
    stood in their place.
    H5977
  8. 8. So they read
    H7121
    in the book
    H5612
    in the law
    H8451
    of God
    H430
    distinctly,
    H6567
    and gave
    H7760
    the sense,
    H7922
    and caused them to understand
    H995
    the reading.
    H4744
  9. 9. And Nehemiah,
    H5166
    which is the Tirshatha,
    H8660
    and Ezra
    H5830
    the priest
    H3548
    the scribe,
    H5608
    and the Levites
    H3881
    that taught
    H995
    the people,
    H5971
    said
    H559
    unto all the people,
    H5971
    This day
    H3117
    is holy
    H6918
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    your God;
    H430
    mourn
    H56
    not, nor weep.
    H1058
    For all the people
    H5971
    wept,
    H1058
    when they heard
    H8085
    the words
    H1697
    of the law.
    H8451
  10. 10. Then he said
    H559
    unto them, Go your way,
    H3212
    eat
    H398
    the fat,
    H4924
    and drink
    H8354
    the sweet,
    H4477
    and send
    H7971
    portions
    H4490
    unto them for whom nothing is prepared:
    H3559
    for this day
    H3117
    is holy
    H6918
    unto our Lord:
    H113
    neither be ye sorry;
    H6087
    for the joy
    H2304
    of the LORD
    H3068
    is your strength.
    H4581
  11. 11. So the Levites
    H3881
    stilled
    H2814
    all the people,
    H5971
    saying,
    H559
    Hold your peace,
    H2013
    for the day
    H3117
    is holy;
    H6918
    neither be ye grieved.
    H6087
  12. 12. And all the people
    H5971
    went their way
    H3212
    to eat,
    H398
    and to drink,
    H8354
    and to send
    H7971
    portions,
    H4490
    and to make
    H6213
    great
    H1419
    mirth,
    H8057
    because they had understood
    H995
    the words
    H1697
    that were declared
    H3045
    unto them.
  13. 13. And on the second
    H8145
    day
    H3117
    were gathered together
    H622
    the chief
    H7218
    of the fathers
    H1
    of all the people,
    H5971
    the priests,
    H3548
    and the Levites,
    H3881
    unto Ezra
    H5830
    the scribe,
    H5608
    even to understand
    H7919
    the words
    H1697
    of the law.
    H8451
  14. 14. And they found
    H4672
    written
    H3789
    in the law
    H8451
    which the LORD
    H3068
    had commanded
    H6680
    by
    H3027
    Moses,
    H4872
    that the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    should dwell
    H3427
    in booths
    H5521
    in the feast
    H2282
    of the seventh
    H7637
    month:
    H2320
  15. 15. And that they should publish
    H8085
    and proclaim
    H5674
    H6963
    in all their cities,
    H5892
    and in Jerusalem,
    H3389
    saying,
    H559
    Go forth
    H3318
    unto the mount,
    H2022
    and fetch
    H935
    olive
    H2132
    branches,
    H5929
    and pine
    H8081
    branches,
    H5929
    H6086
    and myrtle
    H1918
    branches,
    H5929
    and palm
    H8558
    branches,
    H5929
    and branches
    H5929
    of thick
    H5687
    trees,
    H6086
    to make
    H6213
    booths,
    H5521
    as it is written.
    H3789
  16. 16. So the people
    H5971
    went forth,
    H3318
    and brought
    H935
    them, and made
    H6213
    themselves booths,
    H5521
    every one
    H376
    upon the roof of his house,
    H1406
    and in their courts,
    H2691
    and in the courts
    H2691
    of the house
    H1004
    of God,
    H430
    and in the street
    H7339
    of the water
    H4325
    gate,
    H8179
    and in the street
    H7339
    of the gate
    H8179
    of Ephraim.
    H669
  17. 17. And all the congregation
    H6951
    of them that were come again
    H7725
    out of the captivity
    H7628
    made
    H6213
    booths,
    H5521
    and sat
    H3427
    under the booths:
    H5521
    for since the days
    H3117
    of Jeshua
    H3442
    the son
    H1121
    of Nun
    H5126
    unto that day
    H3117
    had not the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    done so.
    H6213
    And there was very
    H3966
    great
    H1419
    gladness.
    H8057
  18. 18. Also day
    H3117
    by day,
    H3117
    from the first
    H7223
    day
    H3117
    unto the last
    H314
    day,
    H3117
    he read
    H7121
    in the book
    H5612
    of the law
    H8451
    of God.
    H430
    And they kept
    H6213
    the feast
    H2282
    seven
    H7651
    days;
    H3117
    and on the eighth
    H8066
    day
    H3117
    was a solemn assembly,
    H6116
    according unto the manner.
