Nehemiah 1:5-7 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
5 I said,
“Lord God of heaven, great and awe-inspiring God, you faithfully keep your promise[a] and show mercy to those who love you and obey your commandments. 6 Open your eyes, and pay close attention with your ears to what I, your servant, am praying. I am praying to you day and night about your servants the Israelites. I confess the sins that we Israelites have committed against you as well as the sins that my father’s family and I have committed. 7 We have done you a great wrong. We haven’t obeyed the commandments, laws, or regulations that you gave us through your servant Moses.
