THE words of Nehemiah the son of Haehaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace,
2 That Haiuinl, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.
3 And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: bthe wall of Jerusalem also 'is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire?
4 If And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

6 Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and f confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.
7 'We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have I not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.
