And I said, "O LORD God of heaven, 1the great and awesome God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,
62let your ear be attentive and your eyes open, to hear the prayer of your servant that I now pray before you day and night for the people of Israel your servants, 3confessing the sins of the people of Israel, which we have sinned against you. Even 4I and my father's house have sinned.
75We have acted very corruptly against you and have not kept the commandments, the statutes, and the rules 6that you commanded your servant Moses.
Remember the word that you commanded your servant Moses, saying, 'If you are unfaithful, 7I will scatter you among the peoples,
98but if you return to me and keep my commandments and do them, 9though your outcasts are in the uttermost parts of heaven, from there I will gather them and bring them 10to the place that I have chosen, to make my name dwell there.'
1011They are your servants and your people, whom you have redeemed by your great power and by your strong hand.
O Lord, 12let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who delight to fear your name, and give success to your servant today, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man."Now I was 13cupbearer to the king.
