Nehemiah 9:33-35 The Voice (VOICE)
33 You are righteous in all that You have done to us.
You have faithfully upheld Your part of the covenant,
but we have acted with evil.
34 None of our kings, princes, priests, or ancestors followed Your law.
They actively rejected Your commands and ignored the many warnings You sent.
35 Even when they had everything—
when they ruled in their own land without worry according to Your great generosity,
When they relaxed into the spacious and fertile land
You set before them—
Even then they refused to serve You
or turn away from their wicked ways.
