Nehemiah 13:23-29

MSG 23 Also in those days I saw Jews who had married women from Ashdod, Ammon, and Moab. NIV 23 Moreover, in those days I saw men of Judah who had married women from Ashdod, Ammon and Moab. MSG 24 Half the children couldn't even speak the language of Judah; all they knew was the language of Ashdod or some other tongue. NIV 24 Half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod or the language of one of the other peoples, and did not know how to speak the language of Judah. MSG 25 So I took those men to task, gave them a piece of my mind, even slapped some of them and jerked them by the hair. I made them swear to God: "Don't marry your daughters to their sons; and don't let their daughters marry your sons - and don't you yourselves marry them! NIV 25 I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God’s name and said: “You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves. MSG 26 Didn't Solomon the king of Israel sin because of women just like these? Even though there was no king quite like him, and God loved him and made him king over all Israel, foreign women were his downfall. NIV 26 Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned? Among the many nations there was no king like him. He was loved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel, but even he was led into sin by foreign women. MSG 27 Do you call this obedience - engaging in this extensive evil, showing yourselves faithless to God by marrying foreign wives?" NIV 27 Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?” MSG 28 One of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was a son-in-law of Sanballat the Horonite; I drove him out of my presence. NIV 28 One of the sons of Joiada son of Eliashib the high priest was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite. And I drove him away from me. MSG 29 Remember them, O my God, how they defiled the priesthood and the covenant of the priests and Levites. NIV 29 Remember them, my God, because they defiled the priestly office and the covenant of the priesthood and of the Levites.
