Read Nehemiah 6:11 Using Other Translations
And I said, Should such a man as I flee? and who is there, that, being as I am, would go into the temple to save his life? I will not go in.
But I said, "Should such a man as I run away? And what man such as I could go into the temple and live? I will not go in."
But I replied, “Should someone in my position run from danger? Should someone in my position enter the Temple to save his life? No, I won’t do it!”
