Neh 1, 1-11
1 Neh 1, 1 The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace, 2 Neh 1, 2 That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3 Neh 1, 3 And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. 4 Neh 1, 4 And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven, 5 Neh 1, 5 And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments: 6 Neh 1, 6 Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned. 7 Neh 1, 7 We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses. 8 Neh 1, 8 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations: 9 Neh 1, 9 But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there. 10 Neh 1, 10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand. 11 Neh 1, 11 O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.
Neh 1, 1-11
Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:
Dt 4:25 - When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger:
Dt 30:2 - And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:
Dan 9:4 - And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
Ex 20:6 - And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Ex 34:7 - Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
Nm 14:18 - The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

Ž 145:8 - The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
- Kislev bol deviaty mesiac v roku (polovica novembra – polovica decembra). Nehemiáš prišiel z kráľovského dvora v Babylone do Jeruzalema v 20. roku kráľa Artaxerxa I. Dlhorukého (465–424 pr. Kr.; porov. Neh 2,1), teda r. 445 pr. Kr., – Súzy boli druhým hlavným mestom Elamska. Na hrade v tomto meste žili perzskí králi len v lete, zimovali v Ekbatanách. Neh 1,2
- Chanani bol bližší príbuzný alebo možno aj vlastný brat Nehemiášov (porov. Neh 7,2). Neh 1,11
- Pohárnik (čašník) bol vysoký úradník na kráľovskom dvore. Riadil etiketu a konal službu pri kráľovskom stole. Častým bezprostredným stykom s monarchom sa časom vyvinul aj istý intímnejší pomer, ktorý Nehemiášovi veľmi pomáhal, keď prosil kráľa, aby mu dal dovolenku.
