Now in the twentyH6242 and fourthH702 dayH3117 of thisH2088 monthH2320 the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 were assembledH622 with fasting,H6685 and with sackcloths,H8242 and earthH127 on them.
And the seedH2233 of IsraelH3478 separatedH914 themselves from allH3605 strangers,H1121 H5236 and stoodH5975 and confessedH3034 their sins,H2403 and the iniquitiesH5771 of their fathers.H1
And they stoodH6965 up in their place,H5977 and readH7121 in the bookH5612 of the lawH8451 of the LORDH3068 their GodH430 one fourthH7243 part of the day;H3117 and another fourthH7243 part they confessed,H3034 and worshippedH7812 the LORDH3068 their God.H430
Then stoodH6965 up on the stairs,H4608 of the Levites,H3881 Jeshua,H3442 and Bani,H1137 Kadmiel,H6934 Shebaniah,H7645 Bunni,H1137 Sherebiah,H8274 Bani,H1137 and Chenani,H3662 and criedH2199 with a loudH1419 voiceH6963 to the LORDH3068 their God.H430
Then the Levites,H3881 Jeshua,H3442 and Kadmiel,H6934 Bani,H1137 Hashabniah,H2813 Sherebiah,H8274 Hodijah,H1940 Shebaniah,H7645 and Pethahiah,H6611 said,H559 StandH6965 up and blessH1288 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 for everH5769 and ever:H5769 and blessedH1288 be your gloriousH3519 name,H8034 which is exaltedH7311 aboveH5921 allH3605 blessingH1293 and praise.H8416
You, even you, are LORDH3068 alone;H905 you have madeH6213 heaven,H8064 the heavenH8064 of heavens,H8064 with allH3605 their host,H6635 the earth,H776 and allH3605 things that are therein,H5921 the seas,H3220 and allH3605 that is therein, and you preserveH2421 them all;H3605 and the hostH6635 of heavenH8064 worshipsH7812 you.
You are the LORDH3068 the God,H430 whoH834 did chooseH977 Abram,H87 and broughtH3318 him forthH3318 out of UrH218 of the Chaldees,H3778 and gaveH7760 him the nameH8034 of Abraham;H85
And foundH4672 his heartH3824 faithfulH539 beforeH6440 you, and madeH3772 a covenantH1285 with him to giveH5414 the landH776 of the Canaanites,H3669 the Hittites,H2850 the Amorites,H567 and the Perizzites,H6522 and the Jebusites,H2983 and the Girgashites,H1622 to giveH5414 it, I say, to his seed,H2233 and have performedH6965 your words;H1697 for you are righteous:H6662
And did seeH7200 the afflictionH6040 of our fathersH1 in Egypt,H4714 and heardH8085 their cryH2201 by the RedH5488 sea;H3220
And showedH5414 signsH226 and wondersH4159 on Pharaoh,H6547 and on allH3605 his servants,H5650 and on allH3605 the peopleH5971 of his land:H776 for you knewH3045 that they dealt proudlyH2102 againstH5921 them. So did you getH6213 you a name,H8034 as it is thisH2088 day.H3117
And you did divideH1234 the seaH3220 beforeH6440 them, so that they wentH5674 throughH8432 the middleH8432 of the seaH3220 on the dryH3004 land; and their persecutorsH7291 you threwH7993 into the deeps,H4688 as a stoneH68 into the mightyH5794 waters.H4325
Moreover you ledH5148 them in the dayH3119 by a cloudyH6051 pillar;H5982 and in the nightH3915 by a pillarH5982 of fire,H784 to give them lightH216 in the wayH1870 whereinH834 they should go.H3212
You cameH3381 downH3381 also on mountH2022 Sinai,H5514 and spokeH1696 with them from heaven,H8064 and gaveH5414 them rightH3477 judgments,H4941 and trueH571 laws,H8451 goodH2896 statutesH2706 and commandments:H4687
And madeH3045 knownH3045 to them your holyH6944 sabbath,H7676 and commandedH6680 them precepts,H4687 statutes,H2706 and laws,H8451 by the handH3027 of MosesH4872 your servant:H5650
And gaveH5414 them breadH3899 from heavenH8064 for their hunger,H7457 and broughtH3318 forthH3318 waterH4325 for them out of the rockH5553 for their thirst,H6772 and promisedH559 them that they should goH935 in to possessH3423 the landH776 whichH834 you had swornH5375 to giveH5414 them.
But they and our fathersH1 dealt proudly,H2102 and hardenedH7185 their necks,H6203 and listenedH8085 not to your commandments,H4687
And refusedH3985 to obey,H8085 neitherH3808 were mindfulH2142 of your wondersH6381 that you didH6213 amongH5973 them; but hardenedH7185 their necks,H6203 and in their rebellionH4805 appointedH5414 a captainH7218 to returnH7725 to their bondage:H5659 but you are a GodH433 ready to pardon,H5547 graciousH2587 and merciful,H7349 slowH750 to anger,H639 and of greatH7227 kindness,H2617 and forsookH5800 them not.
Yes,H637 whenH3588 they had madeH6213 them a moltenH4541 calf,H5695 and said,H559 ThisH2088 is your GodH430 that broughtH5927 you up out of Egypt,H4714 and had workedH6213 greatH1419 provocations;H5007
Yet you in your manifoldH7227 merciesH7356 forsookH5800 them not in the wilderness:H4057 the pillarH5982 of the cloudH6051 departedH5493 not from them by day,H3119 to leadH5148 them in the way;H1870 neither the pillarH5982 of fireH784 by night,H3915 to show them light,H216 and the wayH1870 whereinH834 they should go.H3212
You gaveH5414 also your goodH2896 spiritH7307 to instructH7919 them, and withheldH4513 not your mannaH4478 from their mouth,H6310 and gaveH5414 them waterH4325 for their thirst.H6772
Yes, fortyH705 yearsH8141 did you sustainH3557 them in the wilderness,H4057 so that they lackedH2637 nothing;H3808 their clothesH8008 waxed not old,H1086 and their feetH7272 swelledH1216 not.
Moreover you gaveH5414 them kingdomsH4467 and nations,H5971 and did divideH2505 them into corners:H6285 so they possessedH3423 the landH776 of Sihon,H5511 and the landH776 of the kingH4428 of Heshbon,H2809 and the landH776 of OgH5747 kingH4428 of Bashan.H1316
Their childrenH1121 also multipliedH7235 you as the starsH3556 of heaven,H8064 and broughtH935 them intoH413 the land,H776 concerning whichH834 you had promisedH559 to their fathers,H1 that they should goH935 in to possessH3423 it.
So the childrenH1121 wentH935 in and possessedH3423 the land,H776 and you subduedH3665 beforeH6440 them the inhabitantsH3427 of the land,H776 the Canaanites,H3669 and gaveH5414 them into their hands,H3027 with their kings,H4428 and the peopleH5971 of the land,H776 that they might doH6213 with them as they would.
And they tookH3920 strongH1219 cities,H5892 and a fatH8082 land,H127 and possessedH3423 housesH1004 fullH4392 of allH3605 goods,H2898 wellsH953 dig,H2672 vineyards,H3754 and olive groves,H2132 and fruitH3978 treesH6086 in abundance:H7230 so they did eat,H398 and were filled,H7646 and becameH8080 fat,H8082 and delightedH5727 themselves in your greatH1419 goodness.H2898
Nevertheless they were disobedient,H4784 and rebelledH4775 against you, and castH7993 your lawH8451 behindH310 their backs,H1458 and slewH2026 your prophetsH5030 whichH834 testifiedH5749 against them to turnH7725 them to you, and they workedH6213 greatH1419 provocations.H5007
Therefore you deliveredH5414 them into the handH3027 of their enemies,H6862 who vexedH6887 them: and in the timeH6256 of their trouble,H6869 when they criedH6817 to you, you heardH8085 them from heaven;H8064 and according to your manifoldH7227 merciesH7356 you gaveH5414 them saviors,H3467 who savedH3467 them out of the handH3027 of their enemies.H6862
But after they had rest,H5117 they didH6213 evilH7451 againH7725 beforeH6440 you: therefore leftH5800 you them in the landH3027 of their enemies,H341 so that they had the dominionH7287 over them: yet when they returned,H7725 and criedH2199 to you, you heardH8085 them from heaven;H8064 and manyH7227 timesH6256 did you deliverH5337 them according to your mercies;H7356
And testifiedH5749 against them, that you might bringH7725 them againH7725 to your law:H8451 yet they dealt proudly,H2102 and listenedH8085 not to your commandments,H4687 but sinnedH2398 against your judgments,H4941 (whichH834 if a manH120 do,H6213 he shall liveH2421 in them;) and withdrewH5414 H5437 the shoulder,H3802 and hardenedH7185 their neck,H6203 and would not hear.H8085
Yet manyH7227 yearsH8141 did you forbearH4900 them, and testifiedH5749 against them by your spiritH7307 in your prophets:H5030 yet would they not give ear:H238 therefore gaveH5414 you them into the handH3027 of the peopleH5971 of the lands.H776
Nevertheless for your greatH7227 mercies'H7356 sake you did not utterly consumeH3615 them, norH3808 forsakeH5800 them; for you are a graciousH2587 and mercifulH7349 God.H410
NowH6258 therefore, our God,H430 the great,H1419 the mighty,H1368 and the terribleH3372 God,H410 who keepH8104 covenantH1285 and mercy,H2617 let not allH3605 the troubleH8513 seemH4591 littleH4591 beforeH6440 you, that has comeH4672 on us, on our kings,H4428 on our princes,H8269 and on our priests,H3548 and on our prophets,H5030 and on our fathers,H1 and on allH3605 your people,H5971 since the timeH3117 of the kingsH4428 of AssyriaH804 to thisH2088 day.H3117
However, you are justH6662 in allH3605 that is broughtH935 on us; for you have doneH6213 right,H571 but we have done wickedly:H7561
NeitherH3808 have our kings,H4428 our princes,H8269 our priests,H3548 norH3808 our fathers,H1 keptH6213 your law,H8451 norH3808 listenedH7181 to your commandmentsH4687 and your testimonies,H5715 with whichH834 you did testifyH5749 against them.
For they have not servedH5647 you in their kingdom,H4438 and in your greatH7227 goodnessH2898 that you gaveH5414 them, and in the largeH7342 and fatH8082 landH776 whichH834 you gaveH5414 beforeH6440 them, neitherH3808 turnedH7725 they from their wickedH7451 works.H4611
Behold,H2009 we are servantsH5650 this day,H3117 and for the landH776 that you gaveH5414 to our fathersH1 to eatH398 the fruitH6529 thereof and the goodH2898 thereof, behold,H2009 we are servantsH5650 in it:
And it yieldsH7235 muchH7235 increaseH8393 to the kingsH4428 whomH834 you have setH5414 overH5921 us because of our sins:H2403 also they have dominionH4910 overH5921 our bodies,H1472 and overH5921 our cattle,H929 at their pleasure,H7522 and we are in greatH1419 distress.H6869
And because of allH3605 thisH2063 we makeH3772 a sureH548 covenant, and writeH3789 it; and our princes,H8269 Levites,H3881 and priests,H3548 sealH2856 to it.
