Nehemiah 6:12-14

Context
6:12 I recognized the fact that God had not sent him, for he had spoken the prophecy against me as a hired agent of Tobiah and Sanballat. 1  6:13 He had been hired to scare me so that I would do this and thereby sin. They would thus bring reproach on me and I 2  would be discredited. 3 

6:14 Remember, O my God, Tobiah and Sanballat in light of these actions of theirs – also Noadiah the prophetess and the other prophets who were trying to scare me!

1 tn Heb “and Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him.”

2 tc The translation reads לִי (li, “to me”) rather than the MT reading לָהֶם (lahem, “to them”).

3 tn Heb “would have a bad name.”
