Nehemiah 13 - Versions
Nehemiah 13 Text (WEB)
  1. On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that an Ammonite and a Moabite should not enter into the assembly of God forever,
  2. because they didn't meet the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, to curse them: however our God turned the curse into a blessing.
  3. It came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
  4. Now before this, Eliashib the priest, who was appointed over the rooms of the house of our God, being allied to Tobiah,
  5. had prepared for him a great room, where before they laid the meal offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the grain, the new wine, and the oil, which were given by commandment to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the wave offerings for the priests.
  6. But in all this [time] I was not at Jerusalem; for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon I went to the king: and after certain days asked I leave of the king,
  7. and I came to Jerusalem, and understood the evil that Eliashib had done for Tobiah, in preparing him a room in the courts of the house of God.
  8. It grieved me severely: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the room.
  9. Then I commanded, and they cleansed the rooms: and there brought I again the vessels of the house of God, with the meal offerings and the frankincense.
  10. I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them; so that the Levites and the singers, who did the work, had fled everyone to his field.
  11. Then I contended with the rulers, and said, "Why is the house of God forsaken?" I gathered them together, and set them in their place.
  12. Then brought all Judah the tithe of the grain and the new wine and the oil to the treasuries.
  13. I made treasurers over the treasuries, Shelemiah the priest, and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah: and next to them was Hanan the son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah; for they were counted faithful, and their business was to distribute to their brothers.
  14. Remember me, my God, concerning this, and don't wipe out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for its observances.
  15. In those days saw I in Judah some men treading winepresses on the Sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and loading donkeys [therewith]; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all kinds of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the Sabbath day: and I testified [against them] in the day in which they sold food.
  16. There lived men of Tyre also therein, who brought in fish, and all kinds of wares, and sold on the Sabbath to the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.
  17. Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said to them, "What evil thing is this that you do, and profane the Sabbath day?
  18. Didn't your fathers do thus, and didn't our God bring all this evil on us, and on this city? Yet you bring more wrath on Israel by profaning the Sabbath."
  19. It came to pass that, when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the Sabbath, I commanded that the doors should be shut, and commanded that they should not be opened until after the Sabbath. I set some of my servants over the gates, that no burden should be brought in on the Sabbath day.
  20. So the merchants and sellers of all kinds of wares lodged outside of Jerusalem once or twice.
  21. Then I testified against them, and said to them, "Why do you stay around the wall? If you do so again, I will lay hands on you." From that time on, they didn't come on the Sabbath.
  22. I commanded the Levites that they should purify themselves, and that they should come and keep the gates, to sanctify the Sabbath day. Remember to me, my God, this also, and spare me according to the greatness of your loving kindness.
  23. In those days also saw I the Jews who had married women of Ashdod, of Ammon, [and] of Moab:
  24. and their children spoke half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people.
  25. I contended with them, and cursed them, and struck certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, [saying], "You shall not give your daughters to their sons, nor take their daughters for your sons, or for yourselves.
  26. Didn't Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? Yet among many nations was there no king like him, and he was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel. Nevertheless foreign women caused even him to sin.
  27. Shall we then listen to you to do all this great evil, to trespass against our God in marrying foreign women?"
  28. One of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me.
  29. Remember them, my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.
  30. Thus I cleansed them from all foreigners, and appointed duties for the priests and for the Levites, everyone in his work;
  31. and for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the first fruits. Remember me, my God, for good.
Nehemiah 13 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ביום ההוא נקרא בספר משה באזני העם ונמצא כתוב בו אשר לא־יבוא עמני ומאבי בקהל האלהים עד־עולם׃
  2. כי לא קדמו את־בני ישראל בלחם ובמים וישכר עליו את־בלעם לקללו ויהפך אלהינו הקללה לברכה׃
  3. ויהי כשמעם את־התורה ויבדילו כל־ערב מישראל׃
  4. ולפני מזה אלישיב הכהן נתון בלשכת בית־אלהינו קרוב לטוביה׃
  5. ויעש לו לשכה גדולה ושם היו לפנים נתנים את־המנחה הלבונה והכלים ומעשר הדגן התירוש והיצהר מצות הלוים והמשררים והשערים ותרומת הכהנים׃
  6. ובכל־זה לא הייתי בירושלם כי בשנת שלשים ושתים לארתחשסתא מלך־בבל באתי אל־המלך ולקץ ימים נשאלתי מן־המלך׃
  7. ואבוא לירושלם ואבינה ברעה אשר עשה אלישיב לטוביה לעשות לו נשכה בחצרי בית האלהים׃
  8. וירע לי מאד ואשליכה את־כל־כלי בית־טוביה החוץ מן־הלשכה׃
  9. ואמרה ויטהרו הלשכות ואשיבה שם כלי בית האלהים את־המנחה והלבונה׃ ף
  10. ואדעה כי־מניות הלוים לא נתנה ויברחו איש־לשדהו הלוים והמשררים עשי המלאכה׃
  11. ואריבה את־הסגנים ואמרה מדוע נעזב בית־האלהים ואקבצמ ואעמדם על־עמדם׃
  12. וכל־יהודה הביאו מעשר הדגן והתירוש והיצהר לאוצרות׃
  13. ואוצרה על־אוצרות שלמיה הכהן וצדוק הסופר ופדיה מן־הלוים ועל־ידם חןן בן־זכור בן־מתניה כי נאמנים נחשבו ועליהם לחלק לאחיהם׃ ף
  14. זכרה־לי אלהי על־זאת ואל־תמח חסדי אשר עשיתי בבית אלהי ובמשמריו׃
  15. בימים ההמה ראיתי ביהודה דרכים־גתות בשבת ומביאים הערמות ועמסים על־החמרים ואף־יין ענבים ותאנים וכל־משא ומביאים ירושלם ביום השבת ואעיד ביום מכרם ציד׃
  16. והצרים ישבו בה מביאים דאג וכל־מכר ומכרים בשבת לבני יהודה ובירושלם׃
  17. ואריבה את חרי יהודה ואמרה להם מה־הדבר הרע הזה אשר אתם עשים ומחללים את־יום השבת׃
  18. הלוא כה עשו אבתיכם ויבא אלהינו עלינו את כל־הרעה הזאת ועל העיר הזאת ואתם מוסיפים חרון על־ישראל לחלל את־השבת׃ ף
  19. ויהי כאשר צללו שערי ירושלם לפני השבת ואמרה ויסגרו הדלתות ואמרה אשר לא יפתחום עד אחר השבת ומנערי העמדתי על־השערים לא־יבוא משא ביום השבת׃
  20. וילינו הרכלים ומכרי כל־ממכר מחוץ לירושלם פעם ושתים׃
  21. ואעידה בהם ואמרה אליהם מדוע אתם לנים נגד החומה אם־תשנו יד אשלח בכם מן־העת ההיא לא־באו בשבת׃ ס
  22. ואמרה ללוים אשר יהיו מטהרים ובאים שמרים השערים לקדש את־יום השבת גם־זאת זכרה־לי אלהי וחוסה עלי כרב חסדך׃ ף
  23. גם בימים ההם ראיתי את־היהודים השיבו נשים מואביות׃
  24. ובניהם חצי מדבר אשדודית ואינם מכירים לדבר יהודית וכלשון עם ועם׃
  25. ואריב עםם ואקללם ואכה מהם אנשים ואמרטם ואשביעם באלהים אם־תתנו בנתיכם לבניהם ואם־תשאו מבנתיהם לבניכם ולכם׃
  26. הלוא על־אלה חטא־שלמה מלך ישראל ובגוים הרבים לא־היה מלך כמהו ואהוב לאלהיו היה ויתנהו אלהים מלך על־כל־ישראל גם־אותו החטיאו הנשים הנכריות׃
  27. ולכם הנשמע לעשת את כל־הרעה הגדולה הזאת למעל באלהינו להשיב נשים נכריות׃
  28. ומבני יוידע בן־אלישיב הכהן הגדול חתן לסנבלט החרני ואבריחהו מעלי׃
  29. זכרה להם אלהי על גאלי הכהנה וברית הכהנה והלוים׃
  30. וטהרתים מכל־נכר ואעמידה משמרות לכהנים וללוים איש במלאכתו׃
  31. ולקרבן העצים בעתים מזמנות ולבכורימ זכרה־לי אלהי לטובה׃
Nehemiah 13 Text (Greek)
  1. εν τη ημερα εκεινη ανεγνωσθη εν βιβλιω μωυση εν ωσιν του λαου και ευρεθη γεγραμμενον εν αυτω οπως μη εισελθωσιν αμμανιται και μωαβιται εν εκκλησια θεου εως
  2. οτι ου συνηντησαν τοις υιοις ισραηλ εν αρτω και εν υδατι και εμισθωσαντο επ' αυτον τον βαλααμ καταρασασθαι και εστρεψεν ο θεος ημων την καταραν εις
  3. και εγενετο ως ηκουσαν τον νομον και εχωρισθησαν πας επιμικτος εν
  4. και προ τουτου ελιασιβ ο ιερευς οικων εν γαζοφυλακιω οικου θεου ημων εγγιων
  5. και εποιησεν αυτω γαζοφυλακιον μεγα και εκει ησαν προτερον διδοντες την μανααν και τον λιβανον και τα σκευη και την δεκατην του σιτου και του οινου και του ελαιου εντολην των λευιτων και των αδοντων και των πυλωρων και απαρχας των
  6. και εν παντι τουτω ουκ ημην εν ιερουσαλημ οτι εν ετει τριακοστω και δευτερω του αρθασασθα βασιλεως βαβυλωνος ηλθον προς τον βασιλεα και μετα τελος ημερων ητησαμην παρα του
  7. και ηλθον εις ιερουσαλημ και συνηκα εν τη πονηρια η εποιησεν ελισουβ τω τωβια ποιησαι αυτω γαζοφυλακιον εν αυλη οικου του
  8. και πονηρον μοι εφανη σφοδρα και ερριψα παντα τα σκευη οικου τωβια εξω απο του
  9. και ειπα και εκαθαρισαν τα γαζοφυλακια και επεστρεψα εκει σκευη οικου του θεου την μαναα και τον
  10. και εγνων οτι μεριδες των λευιτων ουκ εδοθησαν και εφυγοσαν ανηρ εις αγρον αυτου οι λευιται και οι αδοντες ποιουντες το
  11. και εμαχεσαμην τοις στρατηγοις και ειπα δια τι εγκατελειφθη ο οικος του θεου και συνηγαγον αυτους και εστησα αυτους επι τη στασει
  12. και πας ιουδα ηνεγκαν δεκατην του πυρου και του οινου και του ελαιου εις τους
  13. επι χειρα σελεμια του ιερεως και σαδδουκ του γραμματεως και φαδαια απο των λευιτων και επι χειρα αυτων αναν υιος ζακχουρ υιος μαθανια οτι πιστοι ελογισθησαν επ' αυτους μεριζειν τοις αδελφοις
  14. μνησθητι μου ο θεος εν ταυτη και μη εξαλειφθητω ελεος μου ο εποιησα εν οικω κυριου του
  15. εν ταις ημεραις εκειναις ειδον εν ιουδα πατουντας ληνους εν τω σαββατω και φεροντας δραγματα και επιγεμιζοντας επι τους ονους και οινον και σταφυλην και συκα και παν βασταγμα και φεροντας εις ιερουσαλημ εν ημερα του σαββατου και επεμαρτυραμην εν ημερα πρασεως
  16. και εκαθισαν εν αυτη φεροντες ιχθυν και πασαν πρασιν πωλουντες εν τω σαββατω τοις υιοις ιουδα και εν
  17. και εμαχεσαμην τοις υιοις ιουδα τοις ελευθεροις και ειπα αυτοις τις ο λογος ουτος ο πονηρος ον υμεις ποιειτε και βεβηλουτε την ημεραν του
  18. ουχι ουτως εποιησαν οι πατερες υμων και ηνεγκεν επ' αυτους ο θεος ημων και εφ' ημας παντα τα κακα ταυτα και επι την πολιν ταυτην και υμεις προστιθετε οργην επι ισραηλ βεβηλωσαι το
  19. και εγενετο ηνικα κατεστησαν πυλαι ιερουσαλημ προ του σαββατου και ειπα και εκλεισαν τας πυλας και ειπα ωστε μη ανοιγηναι αυτας εως οπισω του σαββατου και εκ των παιδαριων μου εστησα επι τας πυλας ωστε μη αιρειν βασταγματα εν ημερα του
  20. και ηυλισθησαν παντες και εποιησαν πρασιν εξω ιερουσαλημ απαξ και
  21. και διεμαρτυραμην εν αυτοις και ειπα προς αυτους δια τι υμεις αυλιζεσθε απεναντι του τειχους εαν δευτερωσητε εκτενω την χειρα μου εν υμιν απο του καιρου εκεινου ουκ ηλθοσαν εν
  22. και ειπα τοις λευιταις οι ησαν καθαριζομενοι και ερχομενοι φυλασσοντες τας πυλας αγιαζειν την ημεραν του σαββατου προς ταυτα μνησθητι μου ο θεος και φεισαι μου κατα το πληθος του ελεους
  23. και εν ταις ημεραις εκειναις ειδον τους ιουδαιους οι εκαθισαν γυναικας αζωτιας αμμανιτιδας
  24. και οι υιοι αυτων ημισυ λαλουντες αζωτιστι και ουκ εισιν επιγινωσκοντες λαλειν
  25. και εμαχεσαμην μετ' αυτων και κατηρασαμην αυτους και επαταξα εν αυτοις ανδρας και εμαδαρωσα αυτους και ωρκισα αυτους εν τω θεω εαν δωτε τας θυγατερας υμων τοις υιοις αυτων και εαν λαβητε απο των θυγατερων αυτων τοις υιοις
  26. ουχ ουτως ημαρτεν σαλωμων βασιλευς ισραηλ και εν εθνεσιν πολλοις ουκ ην βασιλευς ομοιος αυτω και αγαπωμενος τω θεω ην και εδωκεν αυτον ο θεος εις βασιλεα επι παντα ισραηλ και τουτον εξεκλιναν αι γυναικες αι
  27. και υμων μη ακουσομεθα ποιησαι την πασαν πονηριαν ταυτην ασυνθετησαι εν τω θεω ημων καθισαι γυναικας
  28. και απο υιων ιωαδα του ελισουβ του ιερεως του μεγαλου νυμφιου του σαναβαλλατ του ωρωνιτου και εξεβρασα αυτον απ'
  29. μνησθητι αυτοις ο θεος επι αγχιστεια της ιερατειας και διαθηκης της ιερατειας και τους
  30. και εκαθαρισα αυτους απο πασης αλλοτριωσεως και εστησα εφημεριας τοις ιερευσιν και τοις λευιταις ανηρ ως το εργον
  31. και το δωρον των ξυλοφορων εν καιροις απο χρονων και εν τοις βακχουριοις μνησθητι μου ο θεος ημων εις
Nehemiah 13 Text (Latin)
  1. In die autem illo, lectum est in volumine Moysi, audiente populo : et inventum est scriptum in eo, quod non debeant introire Ammonites et Moabites in ecclesiam Dei usque in æternum :
  2. eo quod non occurrerint filiis Israël cum pane et aqua, et conduxerint adversum eos Balaam, ad maledicendum eis : et convertit Deus noster maledictionem in benedictionem.
  3. Factum est autem, cum audissent legem, separaverunt omnem alienigenam ab Israël.
  4. Et super hoc erat Eliasib sacerdos, qui fuerat præpositus in gazophylacio domus Dei nostri, et proximus Tobiæ.
  5. Fecit ergo sibi gazophylacium grande, et ibi erant ante eum reponentes munera, et thus, et vasa, et decimam frumenti, vini, et olei, partes Levitarum, et cantorum, et janitorum, et primitias sacerdotales.
  6. In omnibus autem his non fui in Jerusalem, quia anno trigesimo secundo Artaxerxis regis Babylonis veni ad regem, et in fine dierum rogavi regem.
  7. Et veni in Jerusalem, et intellexi malum, quod fecerat Eliasib Tobiæ, ut faceret ei thesaurum in vestibulis domus Dei.
  8. Et malum mihi visum est valde. Et projeci vasa domus Tobiæ foras de gazophylacio :
  9. præcepique et emundaverunt gazophylacia : et retuli ibi vasa domus Dei, sacrificium, et thus.
  10. Et cognovi quod partes Levitarum non fuissent datæ : et fugisset unusquisque in regionem suam de Levitis, et cantoribus, et de his qui ministrabant :
  11. et egi causam adversus magistratus, et dixi : Quare dereliquimus domum Dei ? Et congregavi eos, et feci stare in stationibus suis.
  12. Et omnis Juda apportabat decimam frumenti, vini, et olei, in horrea.
  13. Et constituimus super horrea Selemiam sacerdotem, et Sadoc scribam, et Phadaiam de Levitis, et juxta eos Hanan filium Zachur, filium Mathaniæ : quoniam fideles comprobati sunt, et ipsis creditæ sunt partes fratrum suorum.
  14. Memento mei, Deus meus, pro hoc, et ne deleas miserationes meas, quas feci in domo Dei mei, et in cæremoniis ejus.
  15. In diebus illis vidi in Juda calcantes torcularia in sabbato, portantes acervos, et onerantes super asinos vinum, et uvas, et ficus, et omne onus, et inferentes in Jerusalem, die sabbati. Et contestatus sum ut in die qua vendere liceret, venderent.
  16. Et Tyrii habitaverunt in ea inferentes pisces, et omnia venalia : et vendebant in sabbatis filiis Juda in Jerusalem :
  17. et objurgavi optimates Juda, et dixi eis : Quæ est hæc res mala, quam vos facitis, et profanatis diem sabbati ?
  18. Numquid non hæc fecerunt patres nostri, et adduxit Deus noster super nos omne malum hoc, et super civitatem hanc ? et vos additis iracundiam super Israël violando sabbatum.
  19. Factum est autem, cum quievissent portæ Jerusalem in die sabbati, dixi : et clauserunt januas, et præcepi ut non aperirent eas usque post sabbatum : et de pueris meis constitui super portas, ut nullus inferret onus in die sabbati.
  20. Et manserunt negotiatores, et vendentes universa venalia, foris Jerusalem semel et bis.
  21. Et contestatus sum eos, et dixi eis : Quare manetis ex adverso muri ? si secundo hoc feceritis, manum mittam in vos. Itaque ex tempore illo non venerunt in sabbato.
  22. Dixi quoque Levitis ut mundarentur, et venirent ad custodiendas portas, et sanctificandam diem sabbati : et pro hoc ergo memento mei, Deus meus, et parce mihi secundum multitudinem miserationum tuarum.
  23. Sed et in diebus illis vidi Judæos ducentes uxores Azotidas, Ammonitidas, et Moabitidas.
  24. Et filii eorum ex media parte loquebantur azotice, et nesciebant loqui judaice, et loquebantur juxta linguam populi et populi.
  25. Et objurgavi eos, et maledixi. Et cecidi ex eis viros, et decalvavi eos, et adjuravi in Deo, ut non darent filias suas filiis eorum, et non acciperent de filiabus eorum filiis suis, et sibimetipsis, dicens :
  26. Numquid non in hujuscemodi re peccavit Salomon rex Israël ? et certe in gentibus multis non erat rex similis ei, et dilectus Deo suo erat, et posuit eum Deus regem super omnem Israël : et ipsum ergo duxerunt ad peccatum mulieres alienigenæ.
  27. Numquid et nos inobedientes faciemus omne malum grande hoc ut prævaricemur in Deo nostro, et ducamus uxores peregrinas ?
  28. De filiis autem Jojada filii Eliasib sacerdotis magni, gener erat Sanaballat Horonites, quem fugavi a me.
  29. Recordare, Domine Deus meus, adversum eos qui polluunt sacerdotium, jusque sacerdotale et Leviticum.
  30. Igitur mundavi eos ab omnibus alienigenis, et constitui ordines sacerdotum et Levitarum, unumquemque in ministerio suo :
  31. et in oblatione lignorum in temporibus constitutis, et in primitivis : memento mei, Deus meus, in bonum. Amen.
Nehemiah 13 Text (KJV)
  1. On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God for ever;
  2. Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing.
  3. Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
  4. And before this, Eliashib the priest, having the oversight of the chamber of the house of our God, was allied unto Tobiah:
  5. And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests.
  6. But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem: for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon came I unto the king, and after certain days obtained I leave of the king:
  7. And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God.
  8. And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the chamber.
  9. Then I commanded, and they cleansed the chambers: and thither brought I again the vessels of the house of God, with the meat offering and the frankincense.
  10. And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them: for the Levites and the singers, that did the work, were fled every one to his field.
  11. Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken? And I gathered them together, and set them in their place.
  12. Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries.
  13. And I made treasurers over the treasuries, Shelemiah the priest, and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah: and next to them was Hanan the son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah: for they were counted faithful, and their office was to distribute unto their brethren.
  14. Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.
  15. In those days saw I in Judah some treading wine presses on the sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lading asses; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all manner of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the sabbath day: and I testified against them in the day wherein they sold victuals.
  16. There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.
  17. Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the sabbath day?
  18. Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.
  19. And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.
  20. So the merchants and sellers of all kind of ware lodged without Jerusalem once or twice.
  21. Then I testified against them, and said unto them, Why lodge ye about the wall? if ye do so again, I will lay hands on you. From that time forth came they no more on the sabbath.
  22. And I commanded the Levites that they should cleanse themselves, and that they should come and keep the gates, to sanctify the sabbath day. Remember me, O my God, concerning this also, and spare me according to the greatness of thy mercy.
  23. In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab:
  24. And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people.
  25. And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves.
  26. Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.
  27. Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?
  28. And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son in law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me.
  29. Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.
  30. Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, every one in his business;
  31. And for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the firstfruits. Remember me, O my God, for good.
