"Please test your servants for ten days, and let us be given some vegetables to eat and water to drink.
"Then let our appearance be observed in your presence and the appearance of the youths who are eating the king's choice food; and deal with your servants according to what you see."
"Moreover, we have not listened to Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings, our princes, our fathers and all the people of the land.
nor have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in His teachings which He set before us through His servants the prophets.
"Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him.
"So now, our God, listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications, and for Your sake, O Lord , let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary.
"For how can such a servant of my lord talk with such as my lord ? As for me, there remains just now no strength in me, nor has any breath been left in me."
