1 The words of Nehemiah the sonne of Hachaliah. And it came to passe in the moneth Chisleu, in the twentieth yeere, as I was in Shushan the palace;

2 That Hanani, one of my brethren came, he and certaine men of Iudah, and I asked them concerning the Iewes that had escaped, which were left of the captiuitie, and concerning Ierusalem.

3 And they said vnto me, The remnant that are left of the captiuitie there in the prouince, are in great affliction and reproch: the wall of Ierusalem also is broken downe, and the gates thereof are burnt with fire.

4 And it came to passe when I heard these words, that I sate downe and wept, and mourned certaine dayes, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heauen,

5 And said, I beseech thee, O Lord God of heauen, the great and terrible God, that keepeth couenant and mercie for them that loue him, and obserue his commandements:

6 Let thine eare now be attentiue, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest heare the prayer of thy seruant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy seruants, and confesse the sinnes of the children of Israel, which wee haue sinned against thee: both I, and my fathers house haue sinned.

7 We haue dealt very corruptly against thee, and haue not kept the commandements, nor the statutes, nor the iudgements, which thou commandedst thy seruant Moses.

8 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy seruant Moses, saying, If yee transgresse, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

9 But if ye turne vnto me, and keepe my commandements, and doe them: though there were of you cast out vnto the vttermost part of the heauen, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them vnto the place that I haue chosen, to set my Name there.

10 Now these are thy seruants, and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

11 O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine eare be attentiue to the prayer of thy seruant, and to the prayer of thy seruants, who desire to feare thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy seruant this day, and grant him mercie in the sight of this man. For I was the kings cup-bearer.

Nehemiah as a characteristic of God that he recognized God for who he his,Nehemiah begin recognising the greatness and the grandeur of God.

Nehemiah is a great example to us as Christian to bring our cases and those of our Nation before Elohim that He will heal our land.

 


Elizabeth Deitsch's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 4/06/2015, 10:37pm...

I think that this man just wanted people to do the right thing and follow the lords wishes for us all.

 


Augustine Oko's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 1/12/2015, 8:11pm...

Nehemiah is one of the character which every Christians should emulate or copy. By this, in our self group wherever we find ourselves, let our life express God glory by making peace, determine to work and make a difference for God. Also we must watch and pray for our nation just like Nehemiah did. May God help us to have a purposeful heart to build for God with our strength and resources.

 


JoAnn's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 1/11/2015, 10:41am...

I think Nehemiah 's prayer should be our nations prayer. Let us turn back to God who has blessed this great nation. Amen

 


James Siaw's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 9/09/2014, 11:06am...

In fact NEHEMIAH was a noble man but this was not considered by NEHEMIAH. He pressed on to fight for his people.We pray that GOD gives us the spirit of NEHEMIAH in order to fight for ourselves and others in the lord. God bless you.

 


Nicola's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 9/06/2014, 3:48pm...

Nehemiah took on the burden of his nation and sought the Lord. When he heard his ppl were in a bad state he did not rejoice or ignore it, though he had favor in the king palace as cupbearer
