16-4:11 And our adversaries6862 said,559 They shall not3808 know,3045 neither3808 see,7200 till5704, 834 we come935 in413 the midst among8432 them, and slay2026 them, and cause (853) the work4399 to cease.7673
16-4:12 And it came to pass,1961 that when834 the Jews3064 which dwelt3427 by681 them came,935 they said559 unto us ten6235 times,6471 From all4480, 3605 places4725 whence834 ye shall return7725 unto5921 us they will be upon you.
16-4:13 Therefore set5975 I in the lower4480, 8482 places4725 behind4480, 310 the wall,2346 and on the higher places,6706 I even set5975 (853) the people5971 after their families4940 with5973 their swords,2719 their spears,7420 and their bows.7198
16-4:14 And I looked,7200 and rose up,6965 and said559 unto413 the nobles,2715 and to413 the rulers,5461 and to413 the rest3499 of the people,5971 Be not408 ye afraid3372 of4480, 6440 them: remember2142 (853) the Lord,136 which is great1419 and terrible,3372 and fight3898 for5921 your brethren,251 your sons,1121 and your daughters,1323 your wives,802 and your houses.1004
16-4:15 And it came to pass,1961 when834 our enemies341 heard8085 that3588 it was known3045 unto us, and God430 had brought their counsel to naught,6565, (853), 6098 that we returned7725 all3605 of us to413 the wall,2346 every one376 unto413 his work.4399
16-4:16 And it came to pass1961 from4480 that1931 time3117 forth, that the half2677 of my servants5288 wrought6213 in the work,4399 and the other half2677 of them held2388 both the spears,7420 the shields,4043 and the bows,7198 and the habergeons;8302 and the rulers8269 were behind310 all3605 the house1004 of Judah.3063
16-4:17 They which built1129 on the wall,2346 and they that bore5375 burdens,5447 with those that laded,6006 every one with one259 of his hands3027 wrought6213 in the work,4399 and with the other259 hand held2388 a weapon.7973
16-4:18 For the builders,1129 every one376 had his sword2719 girded631 by5921 his side,4975 and so built.1129 And he that sounded8628 the trumpet7782 was by681 me.
16-4:19 And I said559 unto413 the nobles,2715 and to413 the rulers,5461 and to413 the rest3499 of the people,5971 The work4399 is great7235 and large,7342 and we587 are separated6504 upon5921 the wall,2346 one376 far7350 from another.4480, 251
16-4:20 In what834 place4725 therefore ye hear8085 (853) the sound6963 of the trumpet,7782 resort6908 ye thither8033 unto413 us: our God430 shall fight3898 for us.
16-4:21 So we587 labored6213 in the work:4399 and half2677 of them held2388 the spears7420 from the rising4480, 5927 of the morning7837 till5704 the stars3556 appeared.3318
16-4:22 Likewise1571 at the same1931 time6256 said559 I unto the people,5971 Let every one376 with his servant5288 lodge3885 within8432 Jerusalem,3389 that in the night3915 they may be1961 a guard4929 to us, and labor4399 on the day.3117
16-4:23 So neither369 I,589 nor my brethren,251 nor my servants,5288 nor the men376 of the guard4929 which834 followed310 me, none369 of us587 put off6584 our clothes,899 saving that every one376 put them off7971 for washing.4325
Chapter 5:19 Verses
16-5:1 And there was1961 a great1419 cry6818 of the people5971 and of their wives802 against413 their brethren251 the Jews.3064
16-5:2 For there were3426 that834 said,559 We,587 our sons,1121 and our daughters,1323 are many:7227 therefore we take up3947 corn1715 for them, that we may eat,398 and live.2421
16-5:3 Some also there were3426 that834 said,559 We587 have mortgaged6148 our lands,7704 vineyards,3754 and houses,1004 that we might buy3947 corn,1715 because of the dearth.7458
16-5:4 There were3426 also that834 said,559 We have borrowed3867 money3701 for the king's4428 tribute,4060 and that upon our lands7704 and vineyards.3754
16-5:5 Yet now6258 our flesh1320 is as the flesh1320 of our brethren,251 our children1121 as their children:1121 and, lo,2009 we587 bring into bondage3533 (853) our sons1121 and our daughters1323 to be servants,5650 and some of our daughters4480, 1323 are3426 brought unto bondage3533 already: neither369 is it in our power410, 3027 to redeem them; for other312 men have our lands7704 and vineyards.3754
16-5:6 And I was very3966 angry2734 when834 I heard8085 (853) their cry2201 and these428 words.1697
16-5:7 Then I consulted4427 with5921 myself,3820 and I rebuked7378 (853) the nobles,2715 and the rulers,5461 and said559 unto them, Ye859 exact5378 usury,4855 every one376 of his brother.251 And I set5414 a great1419 assembly6952 against5921 them.
16-5:8 And I said559 unto them, We587 after our ability1767 have redeemed7069 (853) our brethren251 the Jews,3064 which were sold4376 unto the heathen;1471 and will ye859 even1571 sell4376 (853) your brethren?251 or shall they be sold4376 unto us? Then held they their peace,2790 and found4672 nothing3808, 1697 to answer.
16-5:9 Also I said,559 It is not3808 good2896, 1697 that834 ye859 do:6213 ought ye not3808 to walk1980 in the fear3374 of our God430 because of the reproach4480, 2781 of the heathen1471 our enemies?341
16-5:10 I589 likewise,1571 and my brethren,251 and my servants,5288 might exact5383 of them money3701 and corn:1715 I pray4994 you, let us leave off5800 (853) this2088 usury.4855
16-5:11 Restore,7725 I pray4994 you, to them, even this day,3117 their lands,7704 their vineyards,3754 their oliveyards,2132 and their houses,1004 also the hundredth3967 part of the money,3701 and of the corn,1715 the wine,8492 and the oil,3323 that834 ye859 exact5383 of them.
16-5:12 Then said559 they, We will restore7725 them, and will require1245 nothing3808 of4480 them; so3651 will we do6213 as834 thou859 sayest.559 Then I called7121 (853) the priests,3548 and took an oath7650 of them, that they should do6213 according to this2088 promise.1697
16-5:13 Also1571 I shook5287 my lap,2684 and said,559 So3602 God430 shake out5287 (853) every3605 man376 from his house,4480, 1004 and from his labor,4480, 3018 that834 performeth6965 not3808 (853) this2088 promise,1697 even thus3602 be1961 he shaken out,5287 and emptied.7386 And all3605 the congregation6951 said,559 Amen,543 and praised1984 (853) the LORD.3068 And the people5971 did6213 according to this2088 promise.1697
16-5:14 Moreover1571 from the time4480, 3117 that834 I was appointed6680 to be1961 their governor6346 in the land776 of Judah,3063 from the twentieth6242 year4480, 8141 even unto5704 the two8147 and thirtieth7970 year8141 of Artaxerxes783 the king,4428 that is, twelve8147, 6240 years,8141 I589 and my brethren251 have not3808 eaten398 the bread3899 of the governor.6346
16-5:15 But the former7223 governors6346 that834 had been before6440 me were chargeable3513 unto5921 the people,5971 and had taken3947 of4480 them bread3899 and wine,3196 beside310 forty705 shekels8255 of silver;3701 yea,1571 even their servants5288 bore rule7980 over5921 the people:5971 but so3651 did6213 not3808 I,589 because4480, 6440 of the fear3374 of God.430
16-5:16 Yea, also1571 I continued2388 in the work4399 of this2063 wall,2346 neither3808 bought7069 we any land:7704 and all3605 my servants5288 were gathered6908 thither8033 unto5921 the work.4399
16-5:17 Moreover there were at5921 my table7979 a hundred3967 and fifty2572, 376 of the Jews3064 and rulers,5461 beside those that came935 unto413 us from among4480 the heathen1471 that834 are about5439 us.
16-5:18 Now that which834 was1961 prepared6213 for me daily3117, 259 was one259 ox7794 and six8337 choice1305 sheep;6629 also fowls6833 were prepared6213 for me, and once996 in ten6235 days3117 store7235 of all3605 sorts of wine:3196 yet for all5973 this2088 required1245 not3808 I the bread3899 of the governor,6346 because3588 the bondage5656 was heavy3513 upon5921 this2088 people.5971
16-5:19 Think2142 upon me, my God,430 for good,2896 according to all3605 that834 I have done6213 for5921 this2088 people.5971
Chapter 6:19 Verses
16-6:1 Now it came to pass,1961 when834 Sanballat,5571 and Tobiah,2900 and Geshem1654 the Arabian,6163 and the rest3499 of our enemies,341 heard8085 that3588 I had built1129 (853) the wall,2346 and that there was no3808 breach6556 left3498 therein; (though1571 at5704 that1931 time6256 I had not3808 set up5975 the doors1817 upon the gates;)8179
16-6:2 That Sanballat5571 and Geshem1654 sent7971 unto413 me, saying,559 Come,1980 let us meet3259 together3162 in some one of the villages3715 in the plain1237 of Ono.207 But they1992 thought2803 to do6213 me mischief.7451
16-6:3 And I sent7971 messengers4397 unto5921 them, saying,559 I589 am doing6213 a great1419 work,4399 so that I cannot3808, 3201 come down:3381 why4100 should the work4399 cease,7673 whilst834 I leave7503 it, and come down3381 to413 you?
16-6:4 Yet they sent7971 unto413 me four702 times6471 after this2088 sort;1697 and I answered7725 them after the same2088 manner.1697
16-6:5 Then sent7971 Sanballat5571 (853) his servant5288 unto413 me in like2088 manner1697 the fifth2549 time6471 with an open6605 letter107 in his hand;3027
16-6:6 Wherein was written,3789 It is reported8085 among the heathen,1471 and Gashmu1654 saith559 it, that thou859 and the Jews3064 think2803 to rebel:4775 for5921 which cause3651 thou859 buildest1129 the wall,2346 that thou859 mayest be1933 their king,4428 according to these428 words.1697
16-6:7 And thou hast also1571 appointed5975 prophets5030 to preach7121 of5921 thee at Jerusalem,3389 saying,559 There is a king4428 in Judah:3063 and now6258 shall it be reported8085 to the king4428 according to these428 words.1697 Come1980 now6258 therefore, and let us take counsel3289 together.3162
16-6:8 Then I sent7971 unto413 him, saying,559 There are1961 no3808 such428 things1697 done as834 thou859 sayest,559 but3588 thou859 feignest908 them out of thine own heart.4480, 3820
16-6:9 For3588 they all3605 made us afraid,3372, (853) saying,559 Their hands3027 shall be weakened7503 from4480 the work,4399 that it be not3808 done.6213 Now6258 therefore, O God, strengthen2388 (853) my hands.3027
16-6:10 Afterward I589 came935 unto the house1004 of Shemaiah8098 the son1121 of Delaiah1806 the son1121 of Mehetabeel,4105 who1931 was shut up;6113 and he said,559 Let us meet together3259 in413 the house1004 of God,430 within413, 8432 the temple,1964 and let us shut5462 the doors1817 of the temple:1964 for3588 they will come935 to slay2026 thee; yea, in the night3915 will they come935 to slay2026 thee.
16-6:11 And I said,559 Should such a man as I3644, 376 flee?1272 and who4310 is there, that,834 being as I3644 am, would go935 into413 the temple1964 to save his life?2425 I will not3808 go in.935
16-6:12 And, lo,2009 I perceived5234 that God430 had not3808 sent7971 him; but3588 that he pronounced1696 this prophecy5016 against5921 me: for Tobiah2900 and Sanballat5571 had hired7936 him.
16-6:13 Therefore4616 was he1931 hired,7936 that4616 I should be afraid,3372 and do6213 so,3651 and sin,2398 and that they might have1961 matter for an evil7451 report,8034 that4616 they might reproach2778 me.
16-6:14 My God,430 think2142 thou upon Tobiah2900 and Sanballat5571 according to these428 their works,4639 and1571 on the prophetess5031 Noadiah,5129 and the rest3499 of the prophets,5030 that834 would have1961 put me in fear.3372
16-6:15 So the wall2346 was finished7999 in the twenty6242 and fifth2568 day of the month Elul,435 in fifty2572 and two8147 days.3117
16-6:16 And it came to pass,1961 that when834 all3605 our enemies341 heard8085 thereof, and all3605 the heathen1471 that834 were about5439 us saw7200 these things, they were much3966 cast down5307 in their own eyes:5869 for they perceived3045 that3588 this2063 work4399 was wrought6213 of4480, 854 our God.430
16-6:17 Moreover1571 in those1992 days3117 the nobles2715 of Judah3063 sent1980 many7235 letters107 unto5921 Tobiah,2900 and the letters of Tobiah2900 came935 unto413 them.
16-6:18 For3588 there were many7227 in Judah3063 sworn1167, 7621 unto him, because3588 he1931 was the son in law2860 of Shechaniah7935 the son1121 of Arah;733 and his son1121 Johanan3076 had taken3947 (853) the daughter1323 of Meshullam4918 the son1121 of Berechiah.1296
16-6:19 Also1571 they reported1961, 559 his good deeds2896 before6440 me, and uttered1961, 3318 my words1697 to him. And Tobiah2900 sent7971 letters107 to put me in fear.3372
Chapter 7:73 Verses
16-7:1 Now it came to pass,1961 when834 the wall2346 was built,1129 and I had set up5975 the doors,1817 and the porters7778 and the singers7891 and the Levites3881 were appointed,6485
16-7:2 That I gave (853) my brother251 Hanani,2607 and Hananiah2608 the ruler8269 of the palace,1002 charge6680 over5921 Jerusalem:3389 for3588 he1931 was a faithful571 man,376 and feared3372 (853) God430 above many.4480, 7227
16-7:3 And I said559 unto them, Let not3808 the gates8179 of Jerusalem3389 be opened6605 until5704 the sun8121 be hot;2552 and while5704 they1992 stand5975 by, let them shut1479 the doors,1817 and bar270 them: and appoint5975 watches4931 of the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem,3389 every one376 in his watch,4929 and every one376 to be over against5048 his house.1004
16-7:4 Now the city5892 was large7342, 3027 and great:1419 but the people5971 were few4592 therein,8432 and the houses1004 were not369 built.1129
16-7:5 And my God430 put5414 into413 mine heart3820 to gather together6908 (853) the nobles,2715 and the rulers,5461 and the people,5971 that they might be reckoned by genealogy.3187 And I found4672 a register5612 of the genealogy3188 of them which came up5927 at the first,7223 and found4672 written3789 therein,
16-7:6 These428 are the children1121 of the province,4082 that went up5927 out of the captivity,4480, 7628 of those that had been carried awa,1473 whom834 Nebuchadnezzar5019 the king4428 of Babylon894 had carried away,1540 and came again7725 to Jerusalem3389 and to Judah,3063 every one376 unto his city;5892
16-7:7 Who came935 with5973 Zerubbabel,2216 Jeshua,3442 Nehemiah,5166 Azariah,5838 Raamiah,7485 Nahamani,5167 Mordecai,4782 Bilshan,1114 Mispereth,4559 Bigvai,902 Nehum,5149 Baanah.1196 The number,4557 I say, of the men376 of the people5971 of Israel3478 was this;
