1 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G1722 in G3376 the month G3538.1 of Nisan, G2094 [2year G1501.10 1 the twentieth] G* of Artaxerxes G935 the king, G2532 that G1510.7.3 [3was G3588 1the G3631 2wine] G1799 before G1473 him. G2532 And G2983 I took G3588 the G3631 wine G2532 and G1325 gave it G3588 to the G935 king, G2532 and G3756 there was no G1510.7.3 G2087 other G1799 before G1473 him.
2 G2532 And G2036 [3said G1473 4to me G3588 1the G935 2king], G1302 Why G3588 is G4383 your face G1473 G4190 in a sorry state, G2532 and G3756 you are not G1510.2.2 G3355.1 content? G2532 For G3756 [3not G1510.2.3 1is G3778 2this] G1508 unless G4189 there is a sorrowful G2588 heart. G2532 And G5399 I was afraid G4183 [2much G4970 1exceedingly].
3 G2532 And G2036 I said G3588 to the G935 king, G3588 O G935 king, G1519 [2into G3588 3the G165 4eon G2198 1Live]! G1302 Why G3766.2 should not G1096 [3be G4190 4sorry G3588 G4383 2face G1473 1my], G1360 for G3588 the G4172 city, G3624 the house G3419 of the sepulchres G3962 of my fathers, G1473 G2049 was made desolate, G2532 and G3588 G4439 its gates G1473 G2603.3 were devoured G1722 by G4442 fire?
4 G2532 And G2036 [3said G1473 4to me G3588 1the G935 2king], G4012 For G5100 what G3778 is this G1473 you G2212 seek? G2532 And G4336 I prayed G4314 to G2962 the lord G2316 God G3588 G3772 of heaven.
5 G2532 And G2036 I said G3588 to the G935 king, G1487 If G1909 it be upon G3588 the G935 king G18 for good, G2532 and G1487 if G18.2 [2shall seem good G3588 G3816 1your servant] G1473 G1799 before G1473 you, G5620 so as G3992 to send G1473 him G1722 to G* Judah, G1519 to G4172 the city G3419 of the sepulchres G3962 of my fathers, G1473 G2532 then G456 I will rebuild G1473 it.
6 G2532 And G2036 [3said G1473 4to me G3588 1the G935 2king], G2532 and G3588 G3825.1 his concubine G3588 G2521 sitting G2192 next to G1473 him, G2193 For how long G4219 G1510.8.3 will [2be G3588 G4197 3going G1473 1you], G2532 and G4219 when G1994 will you return? G2532 And G18.2 it was good G1799 before G3588 the G935 king. G2532 And G649 he sent G1473 me, G2532 and G1325 I gave G1473 to him G3735.1 a confirmation.
7 G2532 And G2036 I said G3588 to the G935 king, G1487 If G1909 it be upon G3588 the G935 king G18 for good, G1325 let him give G1473 to me G1992 letters G4314 to G3588 the G1885.1 chief rulers G4008 on the other side G3588 of the G4215 river! G5620 so as G3855 to allow me to pass G1473 G2193 until G2064 I come G1909 unto G* Judah;
8 G2532 and G1992 a letter G1909 to G* Asaph G5441 the keeper G3588 of the G3857 garden, G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G3588 to the G935 king, G5620 so as G1325 to give G1473 to me G3586 wood G4720.3 to roof G3588 the G4439 gates G3588 of the G919.1 palace G3588 of the G3624 house, G2532 and G1519 for G3588 the G5038 wall G3588 of the G4172 city, G2532 and G1519 for G3624 the house, G1519 for G3739 which G1525 I shall enter G4314 unto G1473 it. G2532 And G1325 [3gave G1473 4to me G3588 1the G935 2king] G5613 by G5495 [3hand G2316 4of God G3588 1the G18 2good] G1909 upon G1473 me.
9 G2532 And G2064 I came G4314 to G3588 the G1885.1 chief rulers G4008 on the other side G3588 of the G4215 river, G2532 and G1325 I gave G1473 to them G3588 the G1992 letters G3588 of the G935 king. G2532 And G649 [3sent G3326 4with G1473 5me G3588 1the G935 2king] G747 chiefs G1411 of the force, G2532 and G2460 horsemen.
10 G2532 And G191 [4heard of it G* 1Sanballat G3588 2the G* 3Horonite], G2532 and G* Tobiah G3588 the G1401 servant, G3588 the G* Ammonite, G2532 and G4190 it was a bad thing G1473 to them G1096 that it happened. G2532 And G3076 they were grieved G3754 that G2240 [2comes G444 1a man] G2212 to seek G18 good G3588 to the G5207 sons G* of Israel.
11 G2532 And G2064 I came G1519 unto G* Jerusalem, G2532 and G1510.7.1 I was G1563 there G2250 [2days G5140 1three].
12 G2532 And G450 I rose up G3571 at night, G1473 I G2532 and G435 [2men G3641 1a few] G3326 with G1473 me. G2532 And G3756 I did not G518 report G444 to a man, G3754 for G3588 G2316 God G1325 put it G1519 into G2588 my heart G1473 G3588 G4160 to do this G3326 with G3588 G* Jerusalem. G2532 And G2934 [3beast G3756 2no G1510.2.3 1there is] G3326 with G1473 me, G1508 except G3588 the G2934 beast G3739 which G1473 I G1910 mounted G1909 upon G1473 it.
13 G2532 And G1831 I went forth G1223 through G3588 the G4439 gate G3588 of G* Gai G3571 at night G4314 to G4750 the mouth G4077 of the spring G3588 of the G1404 serpent, G2532 and G1519 to G4439 [3gate G3588 1the G2874 2dung]. G2532 And G1510.7.1 I was G2657 studying G3588 the G5038 walls G* of Jerusalem, G3588 the ones G2686.2 being torn down, G2532 and G3588 G4439 her gates, G1473 G3588 the ones G355 having been consumed G4442 by fire.
14 G2532 And G3928 I went G1909 by G4439 the gate G3588 of the G4077 fountain, G2532 and G1519 into G2861 the pool G3588 of the G935 king. G2532 And G3756 there was no G1510.7.3 G5117 place G3588 for the G2934 beast G3928 [3to pass G5270 1underneath G1473 2me].
15 G2532 And G1510.7.1 I was G305 ascending G1223 by G3588 the G5493 rushing stream G3571 at night. G2532 And G1510.7.1 I was G2657 studying G3588 the G5038 wall, G2532 and G1510.7.1 I was G1722 at G3588 the G4439 gate G3588 of the G5327 ravine, G2532 and G1994 I returned.
16 G2532 And G3588 the ones G5442 guarding G3756 did not G1097 know G5100 why G4198 I went, G2532 and G5100 what G1473 I G4160 was doing. G2532 And G3588 to the G* Jews, G2532 and G3588 to the G2409 priests, G2532 and G3588 to the G1784 important ones, G2532 and G3588 to the G4755 commandants, G2532 and G3588 to the G2645 rest G3588 of the G4160 ones doing G3588 the G2041 works G2193 until G5119 then, G3756 I did not G518 report.
17 G2532 Then G2036 I said G4314 to G1473 them, G1473 You G991 see G3588 G4189 this wickedness G3778 G1722 in G3739 which G1510.2.4 we are G1722 in it, G1473 G4459 how G* Jerusalem G2048 is desolate, G2532 and G3588 G4439 its gates G1473 G1325 were given G4442 to fire. G1205 Come, G2532 and G1353.3 let us build throughout G3588 the G5038 wall G* of Jerusalem! G2532 and G3756 we shall not G1510.8.4 be G2089 any longer G3681 for scorn.
18 G2532 And G518 I reported G1473 to them G3588 the G5495 hand G3588 G2316 of God G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G18 good G1909 upon G1473 me, G2532 and G3588 the G3056 words G3588 of the G935 king G3739 which G2036 he spoke G1473 to me. G2532 And G2036 they said, G450 Let us arise G2532 and G3618 build! G2532 And G2901 [2were fortified G3588 G5495 1their hands] G1473 G1519 for G3588 G18 good.
19 G2532 And G191 [4heard G* 1Sanaballat G3588 2the G* 3Horonite], G2532 and G* Tobiah G3588 the G1401 servant, G3588 the G* Ammonite, G2532 and G* Geshem G3588 the G* Arab. G2532 And G1548.1 they laughed out loud G1473 at us, G2532 and G2706 they disdained G1473 us, G2532 and G2036 they said, G5100 What is G3588 G4487 this thing G3778 G3739 which G1473 you G4160 are doing? G2228 or is it G1909 [3against G3588 4the G935 5king G1473 1 that you are G647.2 2defecting]?
20 G2532 And G1994 I returned G1473 to them G3056 a word, G2532 and G2036 I said G1473 to them, G3588 The G2316 God G3588 G3772 of heaven, G1473 he G2137 shall prosper the way G1473 for us. G2532 And G1473 we G1401 his servants G1473 G2513 are pure, G2532 and G450 we shall arise G2532 and G3618 build, G2532 and G1473 to you G3756 there is no G1510.2.3 G3310 portion, G2532 nor G1343 judicial right, G2532 nor G3422 a memorial G1722 in G* Jerusalem.
