Nehemiah 6

Sanballat practiseth by craft, by rumours, by hired prophecies, to terrify Nehemiah.

Nehemiah 6:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Now it came to pass, when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had built the wall, and [that] there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;) Nehemiah 6:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in [some one of] the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief. Nehemiah 6:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I [am] doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? Nehemiah 6:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Yet they sent unto me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner. Nehemiah 6:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then sent Sanballat his servant unto me in like manner the fifth time with an open letter in his hand; Nehemiah 6:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Wherein [was] written, It is reported among the heathen, and Gashmu saith [it, that] thou and the Jews think to rebel: for which cause thou buildest the wall, that thou mayest be their king, according to these words. Nehemiah 6:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And thou hast also appointed prophets to preach of thee at Jerusalem, saying, [There is] a king in Judah: and now shall it be reported to the king according to these words. Come now therefore, and let us take counsel together. Nehemiah 6:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then I sent unto him, saying, There are no such things done as thou sayest, but thou feignest them out of thine own heart. Nehemiah 6:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it be not done. Now therefore, [O God], strengthen my hands. Nehemiah 6:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Afterward I came unto the house of Shemaiah the son of Delaiah the son of Mehetabeel, who [was] shut up; and he said, Let us meet together in the house of God, within the temple, and let us shut the doors of the temple: for they will come to slay thee; yea, in the night will they come to slay thee. Nehemiah 6:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I said, Should such a man as I flee? and who [is there], that, [being] as I [am], would go into the temple to save his life? I will not go in. Nehemiah 6:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And, lo, I perceived that God had not sent him; but that he pronounced this prophecy against me: for Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him. Nehemiah 6:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Therefore [was] he hired, that I should be afraid, and do so, and sin, and [that] they might have [matter] for an evil report, that they might reproach me. Nehemiah 6:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} My God, think thou upon Tobiah and Sanballat according to these their works, and on the prophetess Noadiah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear.

The work is finished to the terror of the enemies.

Nehemiah 6:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth [day] of [the month] Elul, in fifty and two days. Nehemiah 6:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard [thereof], and all the heathen that [were] about us saw [these things], they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God.

Secret intelligence passeth between the enemies and the nobles of Judah.

Nehemiah 6:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Moreover in those days the nobles of Judah sent many letters unto Tobiah, and [the letters] of Tobiah came unto them. Nehemiah 6:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For [there were] many in Judah sworn unto him, because he [was] the son in law of Shechaniah the son of Arah; and his son Johanan had taken the daughter of Meshullam the son of Berechiah. Nehemiah 6:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Also they reported his good deeds before me, and uttered my words to him. [And] Tobiah sent letters to put me in fear.
