- 14 Moreover, from the day that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the R117 twentieth year to the thirty-second R118 year of King Artaxerxes, for twelve years, neither I nor my kinsmen F49 have eaten the governor's food allowance. 15 But the former governors who were before me laid F50 burdens on the people and took from them bread and wine besides forty shekels of silver; even their servants domineered the people. But I did not do so because R119 of the fear of God. 16 I also applied F51 myself to the work on this wall; we did not buy any land, and all my servants were gathered there for the work. 17 Moreover, there R120 were at my table one hundred and fifty Jews and officials, besides those who came to us from the nations that were around us. 18 Now that R121 which was prepared for each day was one ox and six choice sheep, also birds were prepared for me; and once in ten days all sorts of wine were furnished in abundance. Yet for all this I R122 did not demand the governor's food allowance, because the servitude was heavy on this people. 19 Remember R123 me, O my God, for good, according to all that I have done for this people.

F50 Lit made heavy
F51 Or held fast
