Nehemiah 1:8 In-Context

6 let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you.

10 “They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand.
