Nehemiah 13:4-9

And before
<06440>
this, Eliashib
<0475>
the priest
<03548>_,
having the oversight
<05414> (8803)
of the chamber
<03957>
of the house
<01004>
of our God
<0430>_,
[was] allied
<07138>
unto Tobiah
<02900>_:
{having...: Heb. being set over}
And he had prepared
<06213> (8799)
for him a great
<01419>
chamber
<03957>_,
where aforetime
<06440>
they laid
<05414> (8802)
the meat offerings
<04503>_,
the frankincense
<03828>_,
and the vessels
<03627>_,
and the tithes
<04643>
of the corn
<01715>_,
the new wine
<08492>_,
and the oil
<03323>_,
which was commanded
<04687>
[to be given] to the Levites
<03881>_,
and the singers
<07891> (8789)_,
and the porters
<07778>_;
and the offerings
<08641>
of the priests
<03548>_.
{which...: Heb. the commandment of the Levites}
But in all this [time] was not I at Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for in the two
<08147>
and thirtieth
<07970>
year
<08141>
of Artaxerxes
<0783>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
came
<0935> (8804)
I unto the king
<04428>_,
and after
<07093>
certain days
<03117>
obtained I leave
<07592> (8738)
of the king
<04428>_:
{after...: Heb. at the end of days} {obtained...: or, I earnestly requested}
And I came
<0935> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and understood
<0995> (8799)
of the evil
<07451>
that Eliashib
<0475>
did
<06213> (8804)
for Tobiah
<02900>_,
in preparing
<06213> (8800)
him a chamber
<05393>
in the courts
<02691>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_.
And it grieved
<03415> (8799)
me sore
<03966>_:
therefore I cast forth
<07993> (8686)
all the household
<01004>
stuff
<03627>
of Tobiah
<02900>
out of
<02351>
the chamber
<03957>_.
Then I commanded
<0559> (8799)_,
and they cleansed
<02891> (8762)
the chambers
<03957>_:
and thither brought I again
<07725> (8686)
the vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
with the meat offering
<04503>
and the frankincense
<03828>_.
