Nehemiah 1

1:1 The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to
 pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in
 Shushan the palace,
1:2 That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and [certain] men
 of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had
 escaped, who were left of the captivity, and concerning
1:3 And they said to me, The remnant that are left of the
 captivity there in the province [are] in great affliction and
 reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also [is] broken down, and its
 gates are burned with fire.
1:4 And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat
 down and wept, and mourned [certain] days, and fasted, and
 prayed before the God of heaven,
1:5 And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great
 and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that
 love him and observe his commandments:
1:6 Let thy ear now be attentive, and thy eyes open, that thou
 mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee
 now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants,
 and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have
 sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.
1:7 We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept
 the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which
 thou commandedst thy servant Moses.
1:8 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy
 servant Moses, saying, [If] ye transgress, I will scatter you
 abroad among the nations:
1:9 But [if] ye turn to me, and keep my commandments, and do
 them; though there were of you driven to the uttermost part of
 the heaven, [yet] will I gather them from thence, and will
 bring them to the place that I have chosen to set my name
1:10 Now these [are] thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast
 redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.
1:11 O LORD, I beseech thee, let now thy 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 grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I
 was the king's cup-bearer.
