He did not eat bread or drink water, for he was mourning over the faithlessness of the exiles. NIV 6 Then Ezra withdrew from before the house of God and went to the room of Jehohanan son of Eliashib.

NRS 13 But the people are many, and it is a time of heavy rain; we cannot stand in the open. Nor is this a task for one day or for two, for many of us have transgressed in this matter. NIV 13 But there are many people here and it is the rainy season; so we cannot stand outside. Besides, this matter cannot be taken care of in a day or two, because we have sinned greatly in this thing. NRS 14 Let our officials represent the whole assembly, and let all in our towns who have taken foreign wives come at appointed times, and with them the elders and judges of every town, until the fierce wrath of our God on this account is averted from us." NIV 14 Let our officials act for the whole assembly.
