View In My Bible
5 I said, "I beseech You, O LORD God of heaven, 1the great and awesome God, 2who preserves the covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, 6 3let Your ear now be attentive and Your eyes open to hear the prayer of Your servant which I am praying before You now, day and night, on behalf of the sons of Israel Your servants, 4confessing the sins of the sons of Israel which we have sinned against You; 5I and my father's house have sinned. 7 "6We have acted very corruptly against You and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the ordinances 7which You commanded Your servant Moses. 8 "Remember the word which You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, '8If you are unfaithful I will scatter you among the peoples; 9 9but if you return to Me and keep My commandments and do them, though those of you who have been scattered were in the most remote part of the heavens, I 10will gather them from there and will bring them 11to the place where I have chosen to cause My name to dwell.' 10 "12They are Your servants and Your people whom You redeemed by Your great power and by Your strong hand. 11 "O Lord, I beseech You, 13may Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and the prayer of Your servants who delight to arevere Your name, and make Your servant successful today and grant him compassion before this man." Now I was the 14cupbearer to the king.
