Let your ear now be attentive and your eyes be open, so that you will listen to the prayer of your servant, which I am praying before you these days, day and night, for the people of Isra'el your servants - even as I confess the sins of the people of Isra'el that we have committed against you. Yes, I and my father's house have sinned.
We have deeply offended you. We haven't observed the mitzvot, laws or rulings you ordered your servant Moshe.
Remember, please, the word you gave through your servant Moshe, 'If you break faith, I will scatter you among the peoples;
but if you return to me, observe my mitzvot and obey them, then, even if your scattered ones are in the most distant part of heaven, nevertheless, I will collect them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen for bearing my name.'
Now these are your servants, your people, whom you have redeemed by your great power and strong hand.
Adonai, please, let your ear now be attentive to the prayer of your servant and to the prayer of your servants who take joy in fearing your name: please let your servant succeed today and win this man's compassion"- for I was the king's personal attendant.
