Work Is Ridiculed

1 aNow it came about that when 1Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became furious and very angry and mocked the Jews. 2 He spoke in the presence of his brothers and 2the bwealthy men of Samaria and said, "What are these feeble Jews doing ? Are they going to restore it for themselves? Can they offer sacrifices ? Can they finish in a day ? Can they revive the stones from the c3dusty rubble even the burned ones?" 3 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was near him and he said, "Even what they are building -4if a fox should djump on it, he would break their stone wall down !" 4 5Hear, O our God, how we are despised ! 6Return their reproach on their own heads and give them up for plunder in a land of captivity. 5 Do not e7forgive their iniquity and let not their sin be blotted out before You, for they have fdemoralized the builders.
