Nehemiah 9:26


9:26 “Nonetheless they grew disobedient and rebelled against you; they disregarded your law. 1  They killed your prophets who had solemnly admonished them in order to cause them to return to you. They committed atrocious blasphemies.

Nehemiah 9:29-30

9:29 And you solemnly admonished them in order to return them to your law, but they behaved presumptuously and did not obey your commandments. They sinned against your ordinances – those by which an individual, if he obeys them, 2  will live. They boldly turned from you; 3  they rebelled 4  and did not obey. 9:30 You prolonged your kindness 5  with them for many years, and you solemnly admonished them by your Spirit through your prophets. Still they paid no attention, 6  so you delivered them into the hands of the neighboring peoples. 7 

1 tn Heb “they cast your law behind their backs.”

2 tn Heb “if a man keep.” See note on the word “obey” in Neh 1:5.

3 tn Heb “they gave a stubborn shoulder.”

4 tn Heb “they stiffened their neck.”

5 tn The Hebrew expression here is elliptical. The words “your kindness” are not included in the Hebrew text, but have been supplied in the translation for clarity.

6 tn Heb “did not give ear to.”

7 tn Heb “the peoples of the lands.”
