Nehemiah 2 Text (WEB)
  1. It happened in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, when wine was before him, that I took up the wine, and gave it to the king. Now I had not been [before] sad in his presence.
  2. The king said to me, "Why is your face sad, since you are not sick? This is nothing else but sorrow of heart." Then I was very much afraid.
  3. I said to the king, "Let the king live forever! Why shouldn't my face be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' tombs, lies waste, and its gates have been consumed with fire?"
  4. Then the king said to me, "For what do you make request?" So I prayed to the God of heaven.
  5. I said to the king, "If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your sight, that you would send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers' tombs, that I may build it."
  6. The king said to me (the queen was also sitting by him), "For how long shall your journey be? And when will you return?" So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.
  7. Moreover I said to the king, "If it pleases the king, let letters be given me to the governors beyond the River, that they may let me pass through until I come to Judah;
  8. and a letter to Asaph the keeper of the king's forest, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel by the temple, for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall enter into." The king granted my requests, because of the good hand of my God on me.
  9. Then I came to the governors beyond the River, and gave them the king's letters. Now the king had sent with me captains of the army and horsemen.
  10. When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly, because a man had come to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.
  11. So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
  12. I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God put into my heart to do for Jerusalem; neither was there any animal with me, except the animal that I rode on.
  13. I went out by night by the valley gate, even toward the jackal's well, and to the dung gate, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and its gates were consumed with fire.
  14. Then I went on to the spring gate and to the king's pool: but there was no place for the animal that was under me to pass.
  15. Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall; and I turned back, and entered by the valley gate, and so returned.
  16. The rulers didn't know where I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest who did the work.
  17. Then I said to them, "You see the evil case that we are in, how Jerusalem lies waste, and its gates are burned with fire. Come, let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we won't be disgraced."
  18. I told them of the hand of my God which was good on me, as also of the king's words that he had spoken to me. They said, "Let's rise up and build." So they strengthened their hands for the good work.
  19. But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they ridiculed us, and despised us, and said, "What is this thing that you are doing? Will you rebel against the king?"
  20. Then answered I them, and said to them, "The God of heaven will prosper us. Therefore we, his servants, will arise and build; but you have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem."
Nehemiah 2 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויהי בחדש ניסן שנת עשרים לארתחשסתא המלך יין לפניו ואשא את־היין ואתנה למלך ולא־הייתי רע לפניו׃
  2. ויאמר לי המלך מדוע פניך רעים ואתה אינך חולה אין זה כי־אם רע לב ואירא הרבה מאד׃
  3. ואמר למלך המלך לעולם יחיה מדוע לא־ירעו פני אשר העיר בית־קברות אבתי חרבה ושעריה אכלו באש׃ ס
  4. ויאמר לי המלך על־מה־זה אתה מבקש ואתפלל אל־אלהי השמים׃
  5. ואמר למלך אם־על־המלך טוב ואם־ייטב עבדך לפניך אשר תשלחני אל־יהודה אל־עיר קברות אבתי ואבננה׃
  6. ויאמר לי המלך והשגל יושבת אצלו עד־מתי יהיה מהלךך ומתי תשוב וייטב לפני־המלך וישלחני ואתנה לו זמן׃
  7. ואומר למלך אם־על־המלך טוב אגרות יתנו־לי על־פחוות עבר הנהר אשר יעבירוני עד אשר־אבוא אל־יהודה׃
  8. ואגרת אל־אסף שמר הפרדס אשר למלך אשר יתן־לי עצים לקרות את־שערי הבירה אשר־לבית ולחומת העיר ולבית אשר־אבוא אליו ויתן־לי המלך כיד־אלהי הטובה עלי׃
  9. ואבוא אל־פחוות עבר הנהר ואתנה להם את אגרות המלך וישלח עמי המלך שרי חיל ופרשים׃ ף
  10. וישמע סנבלט החרני וטוביה העבד העמני וירע להם רעה גדלה אשר־בא אדם לבקש טובה לבני ישראל׃
  11. ואבוא אל־ירושלם ואהי־שם ימים שלשה׃
  12. ואקום לילה אני ואנשים מעט עמי ולא־הגדתי לאדם מה אלהי נתן אל־לבי לעשות לירושלם ובהמה אין עמי כי אם־הבהמה אשר אני רכב בה׃
  13. ואצאה בשער־הגיא לילה ואל־פני עין התנין ואל־שער האשפת ואהי שבר בחומת ירושלם אשר־ ושעריה אכלו באש׃
  14. ואעבר אל־שער העין ואל־ברכת המלך ואין־מקום לבהמה לעבר תחתי׃
  15. ואהי עלה בנחל לילה ואהי שבר בחומה ואשוב ואבוא בשער הגיא ואשוב׃
  16. והסגנים לא ידעו אנה הלכתי ומה אני עשה וליהודים ולכהנים ולחרים ולסגנים וליתר עשה המלאכה עד־כן לא הגדתי׃
  17. ואומר אלהם אתם ראים הרעה אשר אנחנו בה אשר ירושלם חרבה ושעריה נצתו באש לכו ונבנה את־חומת ירושלם ולא־נהיה עוד חרפה׃
  18. ואגיד להם את־יד אלהי אשר־היא טובה עלי ואף־דברי המלך אשר אמר־לי ויאמרו נקום ובנינו ויחזקו ידיהם לטובה׃ ף
  19. וישמע סנבלט החרני וטביה העבד העמוני וגשם הערבי וילעגו לנו ויבזו עלינו ויאמרו מה־הדבר הזה אשר אתם עשים העל המלך אתם מרדים׃
  20. ואשיב אותם דבר ואומר להם אלהי השמים הוא יצליח לנו ואנחנו עבדיו נקום ובנינו ולכם אין־חלק וצדקה וזכרון בירושלם׃

  1. και εγενετο εν μηνι νισαν ετους εικοστου αρθασασθα βασιλει και ην ο οινος ενωπιον εμου και ελαβον τον οινον και εδωκα τω βασιλει και ουκ ην ετερος ενωπιον
  2. και ειπεν μοι ο βασιλευς δια τι το προσωπον σου πονηρον και ουκ ει μετριαζων ουκ εστιν τουτο ει μη πονηρια καρδιας και εφοβηθην πολυ
  3. και ειπα τω βασιλει ο βασιλευς εις τον αιωνα ζητω δια τι ου μη γενηται πονηρον το προσωπον μου διοτι η πολις οικος μνημειων πατερων μου ηρημωθη και αι πυλαι αυτης κατεβρωθησαν εν
  4. και ειπεν μοι ο βασιλευς περι τινος τουτο συ ζητεις και προσηυξαμην προς τον θεον του
  5. και ειπα τω βασιλει ει επι τον βασιλεα αγαθον και ει αγαθυνθησεται ο παις σου ενωπιον σου ωστε πεμψαι αυτον εις ιουδα εις πολιν μνημειων πατερων μου και ανοικοδομησω
  6. και ειπεν μοι ο βασιλευς και η παλλακη η καθημενη εχομενα αυτου εως ποτε εσται η πορεια σου και ποτε επιστρεψεις και ηγαθυνθη ενωπιον του βασιλεως και απεστειλεν με και εδωκα αυτω
  7. και ειπα τω βασιλει ει επι τον βασιλεα αγαθον δοτω μοι επιστολας προς τους επαρχους περαν του ποταμου ωστε παραγαγειν με εως ελθω επι
  8. και επιστολην επι ασαφ φυλακα του παραδεισου ος εστιν τω βασιλει ωστε δουναι μοι ξυλα στεγασαι τας πυλας και εις το τειχος της πολεως και εις οικον ον εισελευσομαι εις αυτον και εδωκεν μοι ο βασιλευς ως χειρ θεου η
  9. και ηλθον προς τους επαρχους περαν του ποταμου και εδωκα αυτοις τας επιστολας του βασιλεως και απεστειλεν μετ' εμου ο βασιλευς αρχηγους δυναμεως και
  10. και ηκουσεν σαναβαλλατ ο αρωνι και τωβια ο δουλος ο αμμωνι και πονηρον αυτοις εγενετο οτι ηκει ανθρωπος ζητησαι αγαθον τοις υιοις
  11. και ηλθον εις ιερουσαλημ και ημην εκει ημερας
  12. και ανεστην νυκτος εγω και ανδρες ολιγοι μετ' εμου και ουκ απηγγειλα ανθρωπω τι ο θεος διδωσιν εις καρδιαν μου του ποιησαι μετα του ισραηλ και κτηνος ουκ εστιν μετ' εμου ει μη το κτηνος ω εγω επιβαινω επ'
  13. και εξηλθον εν πυλη του γωληλα και προς στομα πηγης των συκων και εις πυλην της κοπριας και ημην συντριβων εν τω τειχει ιερουσαλημ ο αυτοι καθαιρουσιν και πυλαι αυτης κατεβρωθησαν
  14. και παρηλθον επι πυλην του αιν και εις κολυμβηθραν του βασιλεως και ουκ ην τοπος τω κτηνει παρελθειν υποκατω
  15. και ημην αναβαινων εν τω τειχει χειμαρρου νυκτος και ημην συντριβων εν τω τειχει και ημην εν πυλη της φαραγγος και
  16. και οι φυλασσοντες ουκ εγνωσαν τι επορευθην και τι εγω ποιω και τοις ιουδαιοις και τοις ιερευσιν και τοις εντιμοις και τοις στρατηγοις και τοις καταλοιποις τοις ποιουσιν τα εργα εως τοτε ουκ
  17. και ειπα προς αυτους υμεις βλεπετε την πονηριαν εν η εσμεν εν αυτη πως ιερουσαλημ ερημος και αι πυλαι αυτης εδοθησαν πυρι δευτε και διοικοδομησωμεν το τειχος ιερουσαλημ και ουκ εσομεθα ετι
  18. και απηγγειλα αυτοις την χειρα του θεου η εστιν αγαθη επ' εμε και τους λογους του βασιλεως ους ειπεν μοι και ειπα αναστωμεν και οικοδομησωμεν και εκραταιωθησαν αι χειρες αυτων εις
  19. και ηκουσεν σαναβαλλατ ο αρωνι και τωβια ο δουλος ο αμμωνι και γησαμ ο αραβι και εξεγελασαν ημας και ηλθον εφ' ημας και ειπαν τι το ρημα τουτο ο υμεις ποιειτε η επι τον βασιλεα υμεις
  20. και επεστρεψα αυτοις λογον και ειπα αυτοις ο θεος του ουρανου αυτος ευοδωσει ημιν και ημεις δουλοι αυτου καθαροι και οικοδομησομεν και υμιν ουκ εστιν μερις και δικαιοσυνη και μνημοσυνον εν
Nehemiah 2 Text (Latin)
  1. Factum est autem in mense Nisan, anno vigesimo Artaxerxis regis : et vinum erat ante eum, et levavi vinum, et dedi regi : et eram quasi languidus ante faciem ejus.
  2. Dixitque mihi rex : Quare vultus tuus tristis est, cum te ægrotum non videam ? non est hoc frustra, sed malum nescio quod in corde tuo est. Et timui valde, ac nimis :
  3. et dixi regi : Rex in æternum vive : quare non mœreat vultus meus, quia civitas domus sepulchrorum patris mei deserta est, et portæ ejus combustæ sunt igni ?
  4. Et ait mihi rex : Pro qua re postulas ? Et oravi Deum cæli,
  5. et dixi ad regem : Si videtur regi bonum, et si placet servus tuus ante faciem tuam, ut mittas me in Judæam ad civitatem sepulchri patris mei, et ædificabo eam.
  6. Dixitque mihi rex, et regina quæ sedebat juxta eum : Usque ad quod tempus erit iter tuum, et quando reverteris ? Et placuit ante vultum regis, et misit me : et constitui ei tempus.
  7. Et dixi regi : Si regi videtur bonum, epistolas det mihi ad duces regionis trans flumen, ut traducant me, donec veniam in Judæam :
  8. et epistolam ad Asaph custodem saltus regis, ut det mihi ligna, ut tegere possim portas turris domus, et muros civitatis, et domum, quam ingressus fuero. Et dedit mihi rex juxta manum Dei mei bonam mecum.
  9. Et veni ad duces regionis trans flumen, dedique eis epistolas regis. Miserat autem rex mecum principes militum, et equites.
  10. Et audierunt Sanaballat Horonites, et Tobias servus Ammanites : et contristati sunt afflictione magna, quod venisset homo, qui quæreret prosperitatem filiorum Israël.
  11. Et veni Jerusalem, et eram ibi tribus diebus.
  12. Et surrexi nocte ego, et viri pauci mecum, et non indicavi cuiquam quid Deus dedisset in corde meo ut facerem in Jerusalem, et jumentum non erat mecum, nisi animal, cui sedebam.
  13. Et egressus sum per portam vallis nocte, et ante fontem draconis, et ad portam stercoris, et considerabam murum Jerusalem dissipatum, et portas ejus consumptas igni.
  14. Et transivi ad portam fontis, et ad aquæductum regis, et non erat locus jumento, cui sedebam, ut transiret.
  15. Et ascendi per torrentem nocte, et considerabam murum, et reversus veni ad portam vallis, et redii.
  16. Magistratus autem nesciebant quo abiissem, aut quid ego facerem : sed et Judæis et sacerdotibus, et optimatibus, et magistratibus, et reliquis qui faciebant opus, usque ad id loci nihil indicaveram.
  17. Et dixi eis : Vos nostis afflictionem in qua sumus : quia Jerusalem deserta est, et portæ ejus consumptæ sunt igni : venite, et ædificemus muros Jerusalem, et non simus ultra opprobrium.
  18. Et indicavi eis manum Dei mei, quod esset bona mecum, et verba regis, quæ locutus esset mihi, et aio : Surgamus, et ædificemus. Et confortatæ sunt manus eorum in bono.
  19. Audierunt autem Sanaballat Horonites, et Tobias servus Ammanites, et Gosem Arabs, et subsannaverunt nos, et despexerunt, dixeruntque : Quæ est hæc res, quam facitis ? numquid contra regem vos rebellatis ?
  20. Et reddidi eis sermonem, dixique ad eos : Deus cæli ipse nos juvat, et nos servi ejus sumus : surgamus et ædificemus : vobis autem non est pars, et justitia, et memoria in Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 2 Text (KJV)
  1. And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that wine was before him: and I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence.
  2. Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid,
  3. And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?
  4. Then the king said unto me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven.
  5. And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers' sepulchres, that I may build it.
  6. And the king said unto me, (the queen also sitting by him,) For how long shall thy journey be? and when wilt thou return? So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.
  7. Moreover I said unto the king, If it please the king, let letters be given me to the governors beyond the river, that they may convey me over till I come into Judah;
  8. And a letter unto Asaph the keeper of the king's forest, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the palace which appertained to the house, and for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall enter into. And the king granted me, according to the good hand of my God upon me.
  9. Then I came to the governors beyond the river, and gave them the king's letters. Now the king had sent captains of the army and horsemen with me.
  10. When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.
  11. So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
  12. And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.
  13. And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.
  14. Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king's pool: but there was no place for the beast that was under me to pass.
  15. Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall, and turned back, and entered by the gate of the valley, and so returned.
  16. And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.
  17. Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.
  18. Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king's words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.
  19. But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?
  20. Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.
