Nehemiah 9:32

Context

9:32 “So now, our God – the great, powerful, and awesome God, who keeps covenant fidelity 1  – do not regard as inconsequential 2  all the hardship that has befallen us – our kings, our leaders, our priests, our prophets, our ancestors, and all your people – from the days of the kings of Assyria until this very day!

1 tn Heb “the covenant and loyal love.” The expression is a hendiadys. The second noun retains its full nominal sense, while the first functions adjectivally: “the covenant and loyalty” = covenant fidelity.

2 tn Heb “do not let it seem small in your sight.”
