Opposition mounts

1 a When Sanballat heard that we were building the wall, he became angry and raged. He mocked the Jews, 2 saying in the presence of his associates and the army of Samaria: "What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore things themselves? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish it in a day? Will they revive the stones from the piles of rubble, even though they are burned?" 3 Tobiah the Ammonite, who was beside him, added: "If even a fox climbs on whatever they build, their wall of stones will crumble." 4 Listen, God; we are despised! Turn their insults to usb back on their heads and make them like plunder in a captive land. 5 Don't forgive their iniquity or blot out their sins from your sight. They have thrown insults at the builders!
