Ezra 9

Now when these things were done
<03615> (8763)_,
the princes
<08269>
came
<05066> (8738)
to me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The people
<05971>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and the priests
<03548>_,
and the Levites
<03881>_,
have not separated
<0914> (8738)
themselves from the people
<05971>
of the lands
<0776>_,
[doing] according to their abominations
<08441>_,
[even] of the Canaanites
<03669>_,
the Hittites
<02850>_,
the Perizzites
<06522>_,
the Jebusites
<02983>_,
the Ammonites
<05984>_,
the Moabites
<04125>_,
the Egyptians
<04713>_,
and the Amorites
<0567>_.
For they have taken
<05375> (8804)
of their daughters
<01323>
for themselves, and for their sons
<01121>_:
so that the holy
<06944>
seed
<02233>
have mingled
<06148> (8694)
themselves with the people
<05971>
of [those] lands
<0776>_:
yea, the hand
<03027>
of the princes
<08269>
and rulers
<05461>
hath been chief
<07223>
in this trespass
<04604>_.
And when I heard
<08085> (8800)
this thing
<01697>_,
I rent
<07167> (8804)
my garment
<0899>
and my mantle
<04598>_,
and plucked off
<04803> (8799)
the hair
<08181>
of my head
<07218>
and of my beard
<02206>_,
and sat down
<03427> (8799)
astonied
<08074> (8789)_.
Then were assembled
<0622> (8735)
unto me every one that trembled
<02730>
at the words
<01697>
of the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
because of the transgression
<04604>
of those that had been carried away
<01473>_;
and I sat
<03427> (8802)
astonied
<08074> (8789)
until the evening
<06153>
sacrifice
<04503>_.
And at the evening
<06153>
sacrifice
<04503>
I arose up
<06965> (8804)
from my heaviness
<08589>_;
and having rent
<07167> (8800)
my garment
<0899>
and my mantle
<04598>_,
I fell
<03766> (8799)
upon my knees
<01290>_,
and spread out
<06566> (8799)
my hands
<03709>
unto the LORD
<03068>
my God
<0430>_,
{heaviness: or, affliction}
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
O my God
<0430>_,
I am ashamed
<0954> (8804)
and blush
<03637> (8738)
to lift up
<07311> (8687)
my face
<06440>
to thee, my God
<0430>_:
for our iniquities
<05771>
are increased
<07235> (8804)
over
<04605>
[our] head
<07218>_,
and our trespass
<0819>
is grown up
<01431> (8804)
unto the heavens
<08064>_.
{trespass: or, guiltiness}
Since the days
<03117>
of our fathers
<01>
[have] we [been] in a great
<01419>
trespass
<0819>
unto this day
<03117>_;
and for our iniquities
<05771>
have we, our kings
<04428>_,
[and] our priests
<03548>_,
been delivered
<05414> (8738)
into the hand
<03027>
of the kings
<04428>
of the lands
<0776>_,
to the sword
<02719>_,
to captivity
<07628>_,
and to a spoil
<0961>_,
and to confusion
<01322>
of face
<06440>_,
as [it is] this day
<03117>_.
And now for a little
<04592>
space
<07281>
grace
<08467>
hath been [shewed] from the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_,
to leave
<07604> (8687)
us a remnant to escape
<06413>_,
and to give
<05414> (8800)
us a nail
<03489>
in his holy
<06944>
place
<04725>_,
that our God
<0430>
may lighten
<0215> (8687)
our eyes
<05869>_,
and give
<05414> (8800)
us a little
<04592>
reviving
<04241>
in our bondage
<05659>_.
{space: Heb. moment} {a nail: or, a pin: that is, a constant and sure abode}
For we [were] bondmen
<05650>_;
yet our God
<0430>
hath not forsaken
<05800> (8804)
us in our bondage
<05659>_,
but hath extended
<05186> (8686)
mercy
<02617>
unto us in the sight
<06440>
of the kings
<04428>
of Persia
<06539>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
us a reviving
<04241>_,
to set up
<07311> (8788)
the house
<01004>
of our God
<0430>_,
and to repair
<05975> (8687)
the desolations
<02723>
thereof, and to give
<05414> (8800)
us a wall
<01447>
in Judah
<03063>
and in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{to repair: Heb. to set up}
And now, O our God
<0430>_,
what shall we say
<0559> (8799)
after
<0310>
this? for we have forsaken
<05800> (8804)
thy commandments
<04687>_,
Which thou hast commanded
<06680> (8765)
by
<03027>
thy servants
<05650>
the prophets
<05030>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The land
<0776>_,
unto which ye go
<0935> (8802)
to possess
<03423> (8800)
it, is an unclean
<05079>
land
<0776>
with the filthiness
<05079>
of the people
<05971>
of the lands
<0776>_,
with their abominations
<08441>_,
which have filled
<04390> (8765)
it from one end
<06310>
to another
<06310>
with their uncleanness
<02932>_.
{by: Heb. by the hand of} {from...: Heb. from mouth to mouth}
Now therefore give
<05414> (8799)
not your daughters
<01323>
unto their sons
<01121>_,
neither take
<05375> (8799)
their daughters
<01323>
unto your sons
<01121>_,
nor seek
<01875> (8799)
their peace
<07965>
or their wealth
<02896>
for
<05704>
ever
<05769>_:
that ye may be strong
<02388> (8799)_,
and eat
<0398> (8804)
the good
<02898>
of the land
<0776>_,
and leave [it] for an inheritance
<03423> (8689)
to your children
<01121>
for ever
<05769>_.
And after
<0310>
all that is come
<0935> (8802)
upon us for our evil
<07451>
deeds
<04639>_,
and for our great
<01419>
trespass
<0819>_,
seeing that thou our God
<0430>
hast punished
<02820> (8804)
us less
<04295>
than our iniquities
<05771>
[deserve], and hast given
<05414> (8804)
us [such] deliverance
<06413>
as this; {hast punished...: Heb. hast withheld beneath our iniquities}
Should we again
<07725> (8799)
break
<06565> (8687)
thy commandments
<04687>_,
and join in affinity
<02859> (8692)
with the people
<05971>
of these abominations
<08441>_?
wouldest not thou be angry
<0599> (8799)
with us till thou hadst consumed
<03615> (8763)
[us], so that [there should be] no remnant
<07611>
nor escaping
<06413>_?
O LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
thou [art] righteous
<06662>_:
for we remain
<07604> (8738)
yet escaped
<06413>_,
as [it is] this day
<03117>_:
behold, we [are] before
<06440>
thee in our trespasses
<0819>_:
for we cannot stand
<05975> (8800)
before
<06440>
thee because of this.
