1 G2532 And G1096 [7was G3588 1the G2906 2cry G3588 3of the G2992 4people G2532 5and G1135 6their wives] G1473 G3173 great G4314 against G3588 G80 their brethren G1473 G3588 of the G* Jews.
2 G2532 And G1510.7.6 there were G5100 some G3004 saying, G1722 With G5207 our sons G1473 G2532 and G1722 with G2364 our daughters G1473 G1473 we are G4183 many; G2532 and G2983 we shall take G4621 grain, G2532 and G2068 shall eat G2532 and G2198 shall live.
3 G2532 And G1510.2.6 there are G5100 some G3004 saying, G68 Our fields, G1473 G2532 and G290 our vineyards, G1473 G2532 and G3614 our houses G1473 G1473 we G1325.1 mortgaged, G2532 and G2983 we shall take G4621 grain G2532 and G2068 we shall eat.
4 G2532 And G1510.2.6 there are G5100 some G3004 saying, G1155 We borrowed G694 money G1519 for G5411 tribute G3588 of the G935 king G68 of our fields, G1473 G2532 and G290 our vineyards, G1473 G2532 and G3614 our houses. G1473
5 G2532 And G3568 now G5613 [2 is as G4561 3 the flesh G80 4of our brethren G1473 G4561 1our flesh]; G1473 G5613 as G5207 their sons G1473 G5207 our sons; G1473 G2532 and G2400 behold, G1473 we are G2616 tyrannizing over G3588 G5207 our sons G1473 G2532 and G3588 G2364 our daughters G1473 G1519 selling them for G1401 servants, G2532 and G1510.2.6 there are G575 some of G2364 our daughters G1473 G2616 being tyrannized already; G2532 and G3756 there is no G1510.2.3 G1411 power to redeem them G5495 by our hands, G1473 G2532 for G68 our fields G1473 G2532 and G290 our vineyards G1473 G3588 belong to the G1784 important ones.
6 G2532 And G3076 I fretted G4970 very much G2531 as G191 I heard G3588 G2906 their cry G1473 G2532 and G3588 G3056 these words. G3778
7 G2532 And G1011 [2took counsel G2588 1my heart] G1473 G1909 with G1473 me, G2532 and G3164 I did combat G4314 against G3588 the G1784 important ones, G2532 and G3588 the G758 rulers. G2532 And G2036 I said G1473 to them, G523 Shall [2exact G435 1a man] G3588 G80 from his brother G1473 G3739 what G1473 you G4160 do? G2532 And G1325 I put G1909 upon G1473 them G1577 [2assembly G3173 1a great].
8 G2532 And G2036 I said G1473 to them, G1473 We G2932 have acquired G3588 G80 our brethren G1473 G3588 of the G* Jews, G3588 of the ones G4453 having been sold G3588 to the G1484 nations, G1722 by G1595 our voluntary offerings; G1473 G2532 and G1473 do you G4453 sell G3588 G80 your brethren? G1473 G2532 Or G4097 shall they be sold G1473 to us? G2532 And G2270 they were quiet, G2532 and G3756 they did not G2147 find G3056 a word.
9 G2532 And G2036 I said, G3756 [3 is not good G18 G3588 1The G3056 2matter] G3739 which G1473 you G4160 do. G3756 [2not G3779 4thus G1722 5in G5401 6 the fear G2316 7of our God G1473 G565 1Should you 3go forth] G575 because of G3680 the scorn G3588 of the G1484 nations G3588 G2190 of our enemies? G1473
10 G2532 And also G1065 G1473 I, G2532 and G3588 G80 my brethren, G1473 G2532 and G3588 G1110 my acquaintances, G1473 G5087 put up G1473 for them G694 money G2532 and G4621 grain; G1459 we abandoned G1211 indeed G3588 G523.1 this exaction. G3778
11 G1994 Return G1211 indeed G1473 to them, G5613 even G4594 today, G68 their fields, G1473 G2532 and G290 their vineyards, G1473 G2532 and G1638 their olive groves, G1473 G2532 and G3614 their houses, G1473 G2532 and G575 of G3588 the G694 money G3588 for the G4621 grain, G2532 and G3588 [3the G3631 4wine G2532 5and G3588 6the G1637 7olive oil G1627 1bring forth G1438 2to them]!
12 G2532 And G2036 they said, G591 We will give it back, G2532 and G3844 [3from G1473 4them G3756 1we will not G2212 2seek], G3779 we shall do thus G4160 G2531 as G1473 you G3004 say. G2532 And G2564 I called G3588 the G2409 priests, G2532 and G3726 bound them by an oath G1473 G4160 to do G5613 as G3588 G4487 this saying. G3778
13 G2532 And G3588 G311 [2my wrap G1473 G1621 1I shook off], G2532 and G2036 said, G3779 Thus G1621 shall [2shake off G3588 G2316 1God] G3956 every G435 man G3739 who G3756 does not G2476 stand by G3588 G3056 this word, G3778 G1537 of G3588 G3624 his house, G1473 G2532 and G1537 of G2873 his toil; G1473 G2532 and G1510.8.3 he will be G3779 thus G1621 shaken G2532 and G2756 empty. G2532 And G2036 [4said G3956 1all G3588 2the G1577 3assembly], G281 Amen. G2532 And G134 they praised G3588 the G2962 lord . G2532 And G4160 [3did G3588 1the G2992 2people] G3588 G4487 this thing. G3778
14 G2532 And also G1065 G575 from G3588 the G2250 day G3739 which G1781 he gave charge G1473 to me G1510.1 to be G1519 as G758 their ruler G1473 G1722 in G1093 the land G* of Judah, G575 from G2094 [2year G1501.10 1 the twentieth], G2532 and G2193 until G2094 [4year G5145.1 1 the thirtieth G2532 2and G1208 3second] G3588 G* of Artaxerxes G3588 the G935 king, G2094 [2years G1427 1twelve], G2532 that even G1473 I G2532 and G3588 G80 my brethren G1473 G740 [3bread G3588 G2231 4of my governing G1473 G3756 1did not G2068 2eat].
15 G3588 But the G1161 G758 rulers, G3588 the ones G1715 before G1473 me, G925 oppressed G1909 upon G3588 the G2992 people, G2532 and G2983 took G3844 from G1473 them G1722 in G740 bread loaves G2532 and G1722 in G3631 wine; G2078 and last G694 money G4608.2 [2shekels G5062 1of forty]. G2532 And also G1065 G3588 G3808 their servants G1473 G2961 dominated G1909 over G3588 the G2992 people. G2504 But I G3756 did not G4160 do G3779 so G575 because of G4383 the countenance G5401 of the fear G2962 of the lord .
16 G2532 And G1722 in G2041 the work G3588 of the G5038 wall G3778 [2these things G2902 1I repaired]. G68 [3fields of land G3756 1I did not G2932 2acquire], G2532 and G3588 G3808 my servants G1473 G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G4863 ones gathering G1563 were there G1223 for G3588 G2041 work.
17 G2532 And G3588 the G* Jews, G2532 and G3588 the G758 rulers G1540 were a hundred G4004 fifty G435 men, G2532 and G2064 the ones coming G4314 to G1473 us G575 from G3588 the G1484 nations G3588 G2945 round about G1473 us G1909 were at G5132 my table. G1473
18 G2532 And G1510.7.3 there was G1096 coming G1519 in G2250 [2day G1520 1one] -- G3448 [2calf G1520 1one], G2532 and G4263 [3sheep G1803 1six G1588 2choice], G2532 and G5507.4 a winter yearling; G1096 there came G1473 to me G2532 also G303.1 in the midst G1176 of ten G2250 days G1722 G3956 all G3631 wine G3588 G4128 in multitude. G2532 And G4862 with G3778 these G740 [3bread G3588 G2231 4of my governing G1473 G3756 1I did not G2212 2seek], G3754 for G926 [3 was heavy G3588 1the G1397 2slavery] G1909 upon G3588 G2992 this people. G3778
