Nehemiah 1:6; Nehemiah 4:5; Nehemiah 9:2; Nehemiah 9:37; Nehemiah 10:33
Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open , that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned .
And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders .
And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers , and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.
And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom thou hast set over us because of our sins: also they have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.
For the shewbread , and for the continual meat offering, and for the continual burnt offering, of the sabbaths, of the new moons, for the set feasts, and for the holy things, and for the sin offerings to make an atonement for Israel, and for all the work of the house of our God.
