[ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
- 1 Now when these things had been completed, the princes approached me, saying, "The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated R191 themselves from the peoples of the lands, according R192 to their abominations, those of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians and the Amorites. 2 "For they R193 have taken some of their daughters as wives for themselves and for their sons, so that the R194 holy race F104 has intermingled R195 with the peoples of the lands; indeed, the hands of the princes and the rulers have been foremost in this unfaithfulness." 3 When I heard about this matter, I tore R196 my garment and my robe, and pulled some of the hair from my head and my beard, and sat R197 down appalled. 4 Then everyone R198 who trembled at the words of the God of Israel on account of the unfaithfulness of the exiles gathered to me, and I sat appalled until the R199 evening offering.
