Nehemiah 4:1-5 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall he exploded in anger, vilifying the Jews. 2 In the company of his Samaritan cronies and military he let loose: "What are these miserable Jews doing? Do they think they can get everything back to normal overnight? Make building stones out of make-believe?" 3 At his side, Tobiah the Ammonite jumped in and said, "That's right! What do they think they're building? Why, if a fox climbed that wall, it would fall to pieces under his weight." 4 Nehemiah prayed, "Oh listen to us, dear God. We're so despised: Boomerang their ridicule on their heads; have their enemies cart them off as war trophies to a land of no return; 5 don't forgive their iniquity, don't wipe away their sin - they've insulted the builders!"
