Nehemiah 9:13-23 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
13 1You came down on Mount Sinai 2and spoke with them from heaven and gave them 3right rules and true laws, good statutes and commandments, 14 4and you made known to them your holy Sabbath and commanded them commandments and statutes and a law by Moses your servant. 15 5You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger and 6brought water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and you 7told them to go in to possess the land that you had sworn to give them. 16 "But they and our fathers 8acted presumptuously and stiffened their neck and did not obey your commandments. 17 They refused to obey 9and were not mindful of the wonders that you performed among them, but they stiffened their neck and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt. But you are a God ready to forgive, 10gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them. 18 Even 11when they had made for themselves a goldena calf and said, 'This is your God who brought you up out of Egypt,'12and had committed great blasphemies, 19 you 13in your great mercies did not forsake them in the wilderness. 14The pillar of cloud to lead them in the way did not depart from them by day, 15nor the pillar of fire by night to light for them the way by which they should go. 20 16You gave your good Spirit to instruct them 17and did not withhold your manna from their mouth and gave them water for their thirst. 21 18Forty years you sustained them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing. Their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell. 22 "And you gave them kingdoms and peoples and allotted to them every corner. 19So they took possession of the land of Sihon king of Heshbon 20and the land of Og king of Bashan. 23 You multiplied their children 21as the stars of heaven, and you brought them into the land that you had told their fathers to enter and possess.
