Nehemiah 9:1-2

Context
The People Acknowledge Their Sin before God

9:1 On the twenty-fourth day of this same month the Israelites assembled; they were fasting and wearing sackcloth, their heads covered with dust. 9:2 Those truly of Israelite descent 1  separated from all the foreigners, 2  standing and confessing their sins and the iniquities of their ancestors. 3 

Nehemiah 9:38

Context
The People Pledge to be Faithful

9:38 (10:1) 4  “Because of all of this we are entering into a binding covenant 5  in written form; 6  our leaders, our Levites, and our priests have affixed their names 7  on the sealed document.”

1 tn Heb “the seed of Israel.”

2 tn Heb “sons of a foreigner.”

3 tn Heb “fathers” (also in vv. 9, 16, 23, 32, 34, 36).

4 sn Beginning with 9:38, the verse numbers through 10:39 in the English Bible differ from the verse numbers in the Hebrew text (BHS), with 9:38 ET = 10:1 HT, 10:1 ET = 10:2 HT, 10:2 ET = 10:3 HT, etc., through 10:39 ET = 10:40 HT. Beginning with 11:1 the verse numbers in the ET and HT are again the same.

5 tn Heb “we are cutting.”

6 tn Heb “and writing.”

7 tn Heb “our leaders, our Levites, and our priests on the sealed document.” The Hebrew text is elliptical here; the words “have affixed their names” are supplied in the translation for clarity and for stylistic reasons. Cf. v. 2.
