The People Confess Their Sin

1 Now on the twenty-fourth day of 1this month the sons of Israel assembled 2with fasting, in sackcloth and with 3dirt upon them. 2 The a4descendants of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners , and stood and 5confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers. 3 While 6they stood in their place, they read from the book of the law of the LORD their God for a fourth of the day; and for another fourth they confessed and worshiped the LORD their God. 4 7Now on the Levites' platform stood Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani and Chenani, and they cried with a loud voice to the LORD their God. 5 Then the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah and Pethahiah, said, "Arise, bless the LORD your God forever and ever! O may Your glorious name be blessed And exalted above all blessing and praise!
