Nehemiah 1

LXX 1 The words of Neemias the son of Chelcia. And it came to pass in the month Chaseleu, of the twentieth year, that I was in Susan the palace. NIV 1 The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah: In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, LXX 2 And Anani, one of my brethren, came, he and men of Juda; and I asked them concerning those that had escaped, who had been left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. NIV 2 Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem. LXX 3 And they said to me, The remnant, those that are left of the captivity, there in the land, in great distress and reproach: and the walls of Jerusalem thrown down, and its gates are burnt with fire. NIV 3 They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” LXX 4 And it came to pass, when I heard these words, I sat down and wept, and mourned for days, and continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven. NIV 4 When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. LXX 5 And I said, Nay, I pray thee, O Lord God of heaven, the mighty, the great and terrible, keeping thy covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to those that keep his commandments: NIV 5 Then I said: “LORD, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, LXX 6 let now thine ear be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee at this time, this day day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and make confession for the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and the house of my father have sinned. NIV 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. LXX 7 We have altogether broken with thee, and we have not kept the commandments, and the ordinances, and the judgments, which thou didst command thy servant Moses. NIV 7 We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses. LXX 8 Remember, I pray thee, the word wherewith thou didst charge thy servant Moses, saying, If ye break covenant , I will disperse you among the nations. NIV 8 “Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, LXX 9 But if ye turn again to me, and keep my commandments, and do them; if ye should be scattered under the utmost of heaven, thence will I gather them, and I will bring them into the place which I have chosen to cause my name to dwell there. NIV 9 but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.’ LXX 10 Now they thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed with thy great power, and with thy strong hand. NIV 10 “They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. LXX 11 not , I pray thee, O Lord, but let thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and cause him to find mercy in the sight of this man. Now I was the king's cup-bearer. NIV 11 Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.” I was cupbearer to the king.
