Neemias - EN/PT

Nehemiah 1

1 The history of Nehemiah, the son of Hacaliah. Now it came about, in the month Chislev, in the twentieth year, when I was in Shushan, the king’s town,
1 As palavras de Neemias, filho de Hacalias. E sucedeu no mês de quisleu, no ano vigésimo, estando eu em Susã, a fortaleza,

2 That Hanani, one of my brothers, came with certain men from Judah; and in answer to my request for news of the Jews who had been prisoners and had got away, and of Jerusalem,
2 que veio Hanani, um de meus irmãos, ele e alguns de Judá; e perguntei-lhes pelos judeus que escaparam e que restaram do cativeiro e acerca de Jerusalém.
3 They said to me, The small band of Jews now living there in the land are in great trouble and shame: the wall of Jerusalem has been broken down, and its doorways burned with fire.
3 E disseram-me: Os restantes, que não foram levados para o cativeiro, lá na província estão em grande miséria e desprezo, e o muro de Jerusalém, fendido, e as suas portas, queimadas a fogo.
4 Then, after hearing these words, for some days I gave myself up to weeping and sorrow, seated on the earth; and taking no food I made prayer to the God of heaven,
4 E sucedeu que, ouvindo eu essas palavras, assentei-me, e chorei, e lamentei por alguns dias; e estive jejuando e orando perante o Deus dos céus.
5 And said, O Lord, the God of heaven, the great God, greatly to be feared, keeping faith and mercy with those who have love for him and are true to his laws:
5 E disse: Ah! SENHOR, Deus dos céus, Deus grande e terrível, que guardas o concerto e a benignidade para com aqueles que te amam e guardam os teus mandamentos!
6 Let your ear now take note and let your eyes be open, so that you may give ear to the prayer of your servant, which I make before you at this time, day and night, for the children of Israel, your servants, while I put before you the sins of the children of Israel, which we have done against you: truly, I and my father’s people are sinners.
6 Estejam, pois, atentos os teus ouvidos, e os teus olhos, abertos, para ouvires a oração do teu servo, que eu hoje faço perante ti, de dia e de noite, pelos filhos de Israel, teus servos; e faço confissão pelos pecados dos filhos de Israel, que pecamos contra ti; também eu e a casa de meu pai pecamos.
7 We have done great wrong against you, and have not kept the orders, the rules, and the decisions, which you gave to your servant Moses.
7 De todo nos corrompemos contra ti e não guardamos os mandamentos, nem os estatutos, nem os juízos que ordenaste a Moisés, teu servo.
8 Keep in mind, O Lord, the order you gave your servant Moses, saying, If you do wrong I will send you wandering among the peoples:
8 Lembra-te, pois, da palavra que ordenaste a Moisés, teu servo, dizendo: Vós transgredireis, e eu vos espalharei entre os povos.
9 But if you come back to me and keep my orders and do them, even if those of you who have been forced out are living in the farthest parts of heaven, I will get them from there, and take them back to the place marked out by me for the resting-place of my name.
9 E vós vos convertereis a mim, e guardareis os meus mandamentos, e os fareis; então, ainda que os vossos rejeitados estejam no cabo do céu, de lá os ajuntarei e os trarei ao lugar que tenho escolhido para ali fazer habitar o meu nome.
10 Now these are your servants and your people, whom you have made yours by your great power and by your strong hand.
10 Estes ainda são teus servos e o teu povo que resgataste com a tua grande força e com a tua forte mão.
11 O Lord, let your ear take note of the prayer of your servant, and of the prayers of your servants, who take delight in worshipping your name: give help, O Lord, to your servant this day, and let him have mercy in the eyes of this man. (Now I was the king’s wine-servant.)
11 Ah! Senhor, estejam, pois, atentos os teus ouvidos à oração do teu servo e à oração dos teus servos que desejam temer o teu nome; e faze prosperar hoje o teu servo e dá-lhe graça perante este homem. Então, era eu copeiro do rei.

Nehemiah 2

1 And it came about in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, when wine was before him, that I took up the wine and gave it to the king. Now I had never before been sad when the king was present.
1 Sucedeu, pois, no mês de nisã, no ano vigésimo do rei Artaxerxes, que estava posto vinho diante dele, e eu tomei o vinho e o dei ao rei; porém nunca, antes, estivera triste diante dele.
2 And the king said to me, Why is your face sad, seeing that you are not ill? this is nothing but sorrow of heart. Then I was full of fear;
2 E o rei me disse: Por que está triste o teu rosto, pois não estás doente? Não é isso senão tristeza de coração. Então, temi muito em grande maneira
3 And said to the king, May the king be living for ever: is it not natural for my face to be sad, when the town, the place where the bodies of my fathers are at rest, has been made waste and its doorways burned with fire?
3 e disse ao rei: Viva o rei para sempre! Como não estaria triste o meu rosto, estando a cidade, o lugar dos sepulcros de meus pais, assolada, e tendo sido consumidas as suas portas a fogo?
4 Then the king said to me, What is your desire? So I made prayer to the God of heaven.
4 E o rei me disse: Que me pedes agora? Então, orei ao Deus dos céus
5 And I said to the king, If it is the king’s pleasure, and if your servant has your approval, send me to Judah, to the town where the bodies of my fathers are at rest, so that I may take in hand the building of it.
5 e disse ao rei: Se é do agrado do rei, e se o teu servo é aceito em tua presença, peço-te que me envies a Judá, à cidade dos sepulcros de meus pais, para que eu a edifique.
6 And the king said to me (the queen being seated by his side), How long will your journey take, and when will you come back? So the king was pleased to send me, and I gave him a fixed time.
6 Então, o rei me disse, estando a rainha assentada junto a ele: Quanto durará a tua viagem, e quando voltarás? E aprouve ao rei enviar-me, apontando-lhe eu um certo tempo.
7 Further, I said to the king, If it is the king’s pleasure, let letters be given to me for the rulers across the river, so that they may let me go through till I come to Judah;
7 Disse mais ao rei: Se ao rei parece bem, dêem-se-me cartas para os governadores dalém do rio, para que me dêem passagem até que chegue a Judá;
8 And a letter to Asaph, the keeper of the king’s park, so that he may give me wood to make boards for the doors of the tower of the house, and for the wall of the town, and for the house which is to be mine. And the king gave me this, for the hand of my God was on me.
8 como também uma carta para Asafe, guarda do jardim do rei, para que me dê madeira para cobrir as portas do paço da casa, e para o muro da cidade, e para a casa em que eu houver de entrar. E o rei mas deu, segundo a boa mão de Deus sobre mim.
9 Then I came to the rulers of the lands across the river and gave them the king’s letters. Now the king had sent with me captains of the army and horsemen.
9 Então, vim aos governadores dalém do rio e dei-lhes as cartas do rei; e o rei tinha enviado comigo chefes do exército e cavaleiros.
10 And Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, hearing of it, were greatly troubled because a man had come to the help of the children of Israel.
10 O que ouvindo Sambalate, o horonita, e Tobias, o servo amonita, lhes desagradou com grande desagrado que alguém viesse a procurar o bem dos filhos de Israel.
11 So I came to Jerusalem and was there three days.
11 E cheguei a Jerusalém e estive ali três dias.
12 And in the night I got up, taking with me a small band of men; I said nothing to any man of what God had put into my heart to do for Jerusalem: and I had no beast with me but the one on which I was seated.
12 E, de noite, me levantei, eu e poucos homens comigo, e não declarei a ninguém o que o meu Deus me pôs no coração para fazer em Jerusalém; e não havia comigo animal algum, senão aquele em que estava montado.
13 And I went out by night, through the doorway of the valley, and past the dragon’s water-spring as far as the place where waste material was put, viewing the walls of Jerusalem which were broken down, and the doorways which had been burned with fire.
13 E, de noite, saí pela Porta do Vale, para a banda da Fonte do Dragão e para a Porta do Monturo e contemplei os muros de Jerusalém, que estavam fendidos, e as suas portas, que tinham sido consumidas pelo fogo.
14 Then I went on to the door of the fountain and to the king’s pool: but there was no room for my beast to get through.
14 E passei à Porta da Fonte e ao viveiro do rei; e não havia lugar por onde pudesse passar a cavalgadura que estava debaixo de mim.
15 Then in the night, I went up by the stream, viewing the wall; then turning back, I went in by the door in the valley, and so came back.
15 Então, de noite, subi pelo ribeiro e contemplei o muro; e voltei, e entrei pela Porta do Vale, e assim voltei.
16 And the chiefs had no knowledge of where I had been or what I was doing; and I had not then said anything to the Jews or to the priests or the great ones or the chiefs or the rest of those who were doing the work.
16 E não souberam os magistrados aonde eu fui nem o que eu fazia; porque ainda até então nem aos judeus, nem aos nobres, nem aos magistrados, nem aos mais que faziam a obra tinha declarado coisa alguma.
17 Then I said to them, You see what a bad condition we are in; how Jerusalem is a waste, and its doorways burned with fire: come, let us get to work, building up the wall of Jerusalem, so that we may no longer be put to shame.
17 Então, lhes disse: Bem vedes vós a miséria em que estamos, que Jerusalém está assolada e que as suas portas têm sido queimadas; vinde, pois, e reedifiquemos o muro de Jerusalém e não estejamos mais em opróbrio.
18 Then I gave them an account of how the hand of my God was on me, helping me; and of the king’s words which he had said to me. And they said, Let us get to work on the building. So they made their hands strong for the good work.
18 Então, lhes declarei como a mão do meu Deus me fora favorável, como também as palavras do rei, que ele me tinha dito. Então, disseram: Levantemo-nos e edifiquemos. E esforçaram as suas mãos para o bem.
19 But Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, hearing of it, made sport of us, laughing at us and saying, What are you doing? will you go against the king?
19 O que ouvindo Sambalate, o horonita, e Tobias, o servo amonita, e Gesém, o arábio, zombaram de nós, e desprezaram-nos, e disseram: Que é isso que fazeis? Quereis rebelar-vos contra o rei?
20 Then answering them I said, The God of heaven, he will be our help; so we his servants will go on with our building: but you have no part or right or any name in Jerusalem.
20 Então, lhes respondi e disse: O Deus dos céus é o que nos fará prosperar; e nós, seus servos, nos levantaremos e edificaremos; mas vós não tendes parte, nem justiça, nem memória em Jerusalém.

Nehemiah 3

Nehemiah 4

1 Now, Sanballat, hearing that we were building the wall, was very angry, and in his wrath made sport of the Jews.
1 E sucedeu que, ouvindo Sambalate que edificávamos o muro, ardeu em ira, e se indignou muito, e escarneceu dos judeus.
2 And in the hearing of his countrymen and the army of Samaria he said, What are these feeble Jews doing? will they make themselves strong? will they make offerings? will they get the work done in a day? will they make the stones which have been burned come again out of the dust?
2 E falou na presença de seus irmãos e do exército de Samaria e disse: Que fazem estes fracos judeus? Permitir-se-lhes-á isso? Sacrificarão? Acabá-lo-ão num só dia? Vivificarão dos montões do pó as pedras que foram queimadas?
3 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Such is their building that if a fox goes up it, their stone wall will be broken down.
3 E estava com ele Tobias, o amonita, e disse: Ainda que edifiquem, vindo uma raposa, derrubará facilmente o seu muro de pedra.
4 Give ear, O our God, for we are looked down on: let their words of shame be turned back on themselves, and let them be given up to wasting in a land where they are prisoners:
4 Ouve, ó nosso Deus, que somos tão desprezados, e caia o seu opróbrio sobre a sua cabeça, e faze com que sejam um despojo, numa terra de cativeiro.
5 Let not their wrongdoing be covered or their sin washed away from before you: for they have made you angry before the builders.
5 E não cubras a sua iniqüidade, e não se risque diante de ti o seu pecado, pois que te irritaram defronte dos edificadores.
6 So we went on building the wall; and all the wall was joined together half-way up: for the people were working hard.
6 Assim, edificamos o muro, e todo o muro se cerrou até sua metade; porque o coração do povo se inclinava a trabalhar.
7 But when it came to the ears of Sanballat and Tobiah and the Arabians and the Ammonites and the Ashdodites, that the building of the walls of Jerusalem was going forward and the broken places were being made good, they were full of wrath;
7 E sucedeu que, ouvindo Sambalate, e Tobias, e os arábios, e os amonitas, e os asdoditas que tanto ia crescendo a reparação dos muros de Jerusalém, que já as roturas se começavam a tapar, iraram-se sobremodo.
8 And they made designs, all of them together, to come and make an attack on Jerusalem, causing trouble there.
8 E ligaram-se entre si todos, para virem atacar Jerusalém e para os desviarem do seu intento.
9 But we made our prayer to God, and had men on watch against them day and night because of them.
9 Porém nós oramos ao nosso Deus e pusemos uma guarda contra eles, de dia e de noite, por causa deles.
10 And Judah said, The strength of the workmen is giving way, and there is much waste material; it is impossible for us to put up the wall.
10 Então, disse Judá: Já desfaleceram as forças dos acarretadores, e o pó é muito, e nós não poderemos edificar o muro.
11 And those who were against us said, Without their knowledge and without their seeing us, we will come among them and put them to death, causing the work to come to a stop.
11 Disseram, porém, os nossos inimigos: Nada saberão disso, nem verão, até que entremos no meio deles e os matemos; assim, faremos cessar a obra.
12 And it came about that when the Jews who were living near them came, they said to us ten times, From all directions they are coming against us.
12 E sucedeu que, vindo os judeus que habitavam entre eles, dez vezes nos disseram que, de todos os lugares, tornavam a nós.
13 So in the lowest part of the space at the back of the walls, in the open places, I put the people by families, with their swords, their spears, and their bows.
13 Pelo que pus guardas nos lugares baixos por detrás do muro e nos altos; e pus o povo, pelas suas famílias, com as suas espadas, com as suas lanças e com os seus arcos.
14 And after looking, I got up and said to the great ones and to the chiefs and to the rest of the people, Have no fear of them: keep in mind the Lord who is great and greatly to be feared, and take up arms for your brothers, your sons, and your daughters, your wives and your houses.
14 E olhei, e levantei-me, e disse aos nobres, e aos magistrados, e ao resto do povo: Não os temais; lembrai-vos do Senhor, grande e terrível, e pelejai pelos vossos irmãos, vossos filhos, vossas mulheres e vossas casas.
15 And when it came to the ears of those who were against us, that we had knowledge of their designs and that God had made their purpose come to nothing, we all went back to the wall, everyone to his work
15 E sucedeu que, ouvindo os nossos inimigos que já o sabíamos e que Deus tinha dissipado o conselho deles, todos voltamos ao muro, cada um à sua obra.
16 And from that time, half of my servants were doing their part of the work, and half kept the spears and body-covers and the bows and the metal war-dresses; and the chiefs were at the back of the men of Judah.
16 E sucedeu que, desde aquele dia, metade dos meus moços trabalhava na obra, e a outra metade deles tinha as lanças, os escudos, os arcos e as couraças; e os chefes estavam por detrás de toda a casa de Judá.
17 Those who were building the wall and those who were moving material did their part, everyone working with one hand, with his spear in the other;
17 Os que edificavam o muro, e os que traziam as cargas, e os que carregavam, cada um com uma mão fazia a obra e na outra tinha as armas.
18 Every builder was working with his sword at his side. And by my side was a man for sounding the horn.
18 E os edificadores cada um trazia a sua espada cingida aos lombos, e edificavam; e o que tocava a trombeta estava junto comigo.
19 And I said to the great ones and the chiefs and the rest of the people, The work is great and widely spaced and we are far away from one another on the wall:
19 E disse eu aos nobres, e aos magistrados, e ao resto do povo: Grande e extensa é a obra, e nós estamos apartados do muro, longe uns dos outros.
20 Wherever you may be when the horn is sounded, come here to us; our God will be fighting for us.
20 No lugar onde ouvirdes o som da buzina, ali vos ajuntareis conosco; o nosso Deus pelejará por nós.
21 So we went on with the work: and half of them had spears in their hands from the dawn of the morning till the stars were seen.
21 Assim trabalhávamos na obra; e metade deles tinha as lanças desde a subida da alva até ao sair das estrelas.
22 And at the same time I said to the people, Let everyone with his servant come inside Jerusalem for the night, so that at night they may keep watch for us, and go on working by day.
22 Também, naquele tempo, disse ao povo: Cada um com o seu moço fique em Jerusalém, para que, de noite, nos sirvam de guarda e, de dia, na obra.
23 So not one of us, I or my brothers or my servants or the watchmen who were with me, took off his clothing, everyone went armed to the water.
23 E nem eu, nem meus irmãos, nem meus moços, nem os homens da guarda que me seguiam largávamos as nossas vestes; cada um ia com suas armas à água.

Nehemiah 5

1 Then there was a great outcry from the people and their wives against their countrymen the Jews.
1 Foi, porém, grande o clamor do povo e de suas mulheres contra os judeus, seus irmãos.
2 For there were some who said, We, our sons and our daughters, are a great number: let us get grain, so that we may have food for our needs.
2 Porque havia quem dizia: Com nossos filhos e nossas filhas, nós somos muitos; pelo que tomemos trigo, para que comamos e vivamos.
3 And there were some who said, We are giving our fields and our vine-gardens and our houses for debt: let us get grain because we are in need.
3 Também havia quem dizia: As nossas terras, as nossas vinhas e as nossas casas empenhamos, para tomarmos trigo nesta fome.
4 And there were others who said, We have given up our fields and our vine-gardens to get money for the king’s taxes.
4 Também havia quem dizia: Tomamos dinheiro emprestado até para o tributo do rei, sobre as nossas terras e as nossas vinhas.
5 But our flesh is the same as the flesh of our countrymen, and our children as their children: and now we are giving our sons and daughters into the hands of others, to be their servants, and some of our daughters are servants even now: and we have no power to put a stop to it; for other men have our fields and our vine-gardens.
5 Agora, pois, a nossa carne é como a carne de nossos irmãos, e nossos filhos, como seus filhos; e eis que sujeitamos nossos filhos e nossas filhas para serem servos, e até algumas de nossas filhas são tão sujeitas, que já não estão no poder de nossas mãos; e outros têm as nossas terras e as nossas vinhas.
6 And on hearing their outcry and what they said I was very angry.
6 Ouvindo eu, pois, o seu clamor e essas palavras, muito me enfadei.
7 And after turning it over in my mind, I made a protest to the chiefs and the rulers, and said to them, Every one of you is taking interest from his countryman. And I got together a great meeting of protest.
7 E considerei comigo mesmo no meu coração; depois, pelejei com os nobres e com os magistrados e disse-lhes: Usura tomais cada um de seu irmão. E ajuntei contra eles um grande ajuntamento.
8 And I said to them, We have given whatever we were able to give, to make our brothers the Jews free, who were servants and prisoners of the nations: and would you now give up your brothers for a price, and are they to become our property? Then they said nothing, answering not a word.
8 E disse-lhes: Nós resgatamos os judeus, nossos irmãos, que foram vendidos às gentes, segundo nossas posses; e vós outra vez venderíeis vossos irmãos ou vender-se-iam a nós? Então, se calaram e não acharam que responder.
9 And I said, What you are doing is not good: is it not the more necessary for you to go in the fear of our God, because of the shame which the nations may put on us?
9 Disse mais: Não é bom o que fazeis: Porventura, não devíeis andar no temor do nosso Deus, por causa do opróbrio dos gentios, os nossos inimigos?
10 Even I and my servants have been taking interest for the money and the grain we have let them have. So now, let us give up this thing.
10 Também eu, meus irmãos e meus moços, a juro, lhes temos dado dinheiro e trigo. Deixemos este ganho.
11 Give back to them this very day their fields, their vine-gardens, their olive-gardens, and their houses, as well as a hundredth part of the money and the grain and the wine and the oil which you have taken from them.
11 Restituí-lhes hoje, vos peço, as suas terras, as suas vinhas, os seus olivais e as suas casas, como também o centésimo do dinheiro, do trigo, do mosto e do azeite, que vós exigis deles.
12 Then they said, We will give them back, and take nothing for them; we will do as you say. Then I sent for the priests and made them take an oath that they would keep this agreement.
12 Então, disseram: Restituir-lho-emos e nada procuraremos deles; faremos assim como dizes. Então, chamei os sacerdotes e os fiz jurar que fariam conforme esta palavra.
13 And shaking out the folds of my robe, I said, So may God send out from his house and his work every man who does not keep this agreement; even so let him be sent out and made as nothing. And all the meeting of the people said, So be it, and gave praise to the Lord. And the people did as they had said.
13 Também o meu regaço sacudi e disse: Assim sacuda Deus a todo homem da sua casa e do seu trabalho que não cumprir esta palavra; e assim seja sacudido e vazio. E toda a congregação disse: Amém! E louvaram o SENHOR; e o povo fez conforme esta palavra.
14 Now from the time when I was made ruler of the people in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year till the thirty-second year of Artaxerxes the king, for twelve years, I and my servants have never taken the food which was the right of the ruler.
14 Também desde o dia em que fui nomeado seu governador na terra de Judá, desde o ano vinte até ao ano trinta e dois do rei Artaxerxes, doze anos, nem eu nem meus irmãos comemos o pão do governador.
15 But earlier rulers who were before me made the people responsible for their upkeep, and took from them bread and wine at the rate of forty shekels of silver; and even their servants were lords over the people: but I did not do so, because of the fear of God.
15 Mas os primeiros governadores, que foram antes de mim, oprimiram o povo e tomaram-lhe pão e vinho e, além disso, quarenta siclos de prata; ainda também os seus moços dominavam sobre o povo; porém eu assim não fiz, por causa do temor de Deus.
16 And I kept on with the work of this wall, and we got no land for ourselves: and all my servants were helping with the work.
16 Antes, também na obra deste muro fiz reparação, e terra nenhuma compramos; e todos os meus moços se ajuntaram ali para a obra.
17 And more than this, a hundred and fifty of the Jews and the rulers were guests at my table, in addition to those who came to us from the nations round about us.
17 Também cento e cinqüenta homens dos judeus e dos magistrados e os que vinham a nós, dentre as gentes que estão à roda de nós, se punham à minha mesa.
18 Now the food made ready for one day was one ox and six fat sheep, as well as fowls; and once in ten days a store of all sorts of wine: but all the same, I did not take the food to which the ruler had a right, because the people were crushed under a hard yoke.
18 E o que se preparava para cada dia era um boi e seis ovelhas escolhidas; também aves se me preparavam e, de dez em dez dias, de todo o vinho muitíssimo; e nem por isso exigi o pão do governador, porquanto a servidão deste povo era grande.
19 Keep in mind, O my God, for my good, all I have done for this people.
19 Lembra-te de mim para bem, ó meu Deus, e de tudo quanto fiz a este povo.

Nehemiah 6

1 Now when word was given to Sanballat and Tobiah and to Geshem the Arabian and to the rest of our haters, that I had done the building of the wall and that there were no more broken places in it (though even then I had not put up the doors in the doorways);
1 Sucedeu mais que, ouvindo Sambalate, Tobias, Gesém, o arábio, e o resto dos nossos inimigos que eu tinha edificado o muro e que nele já não havia brecha alguma, ainda que até este tempo não tinha posto as portas nos portais,
2 Sanballat and Geshem sent to me saying, Come, let us have a meeting in one of the little towns in the lowland of Ono. But their purpose was to do me evil.
2 Sambalate e Gesém enviaram a dizer: Vem, e congreguemo-nos juntamente nas aldeias, no vale de Ono. Porém intentavam fazer-me mal.
3 And I sent men to them saying, I am doing a great work, so that it is not possible for me to come down: is the work to be stopped while I go away from it and come down to you?
3 E enviei-lhes mensageiros a dizer: Estou fazendo uma grande obra, de modo que não poderei descer; por que cessaria esta obra, enquanto eu a deixasse e fosse ter convosco?
4 And four times they sent to me in this way, and I sent them the same answer.
4 E da mesma maneira enviaram a mim quatro vezes; e da mesma maneira lhes respondi.
5 Then Sanballat sent his servant to me a fifth time with an open letter in his hand;
5 Então, Sambalate, da mesma maneira, pela quinta vez, me enviou o seu moço com uma carta aberta na sua mão,
6 And in it these words were recorded: It is said among the nations, and Geshem says so, that you and the Jews are hoping to make yourselves free from the king’s authority; and that this is why you are building the wall: and they say that it is your purpose to be their king;
6 e na qual estava escrito: Entre as gentes se ouviu e Gesém diz que tu e os judeus intentais revoltar-vos, pelo que edificais o muro; e que tu te farás rei deles segundo estas palavras;
7 And that you have prophets preaching about you in Jerusalem, and saying, There is a king in Judah: now an account of these things will be sent to the king. So come now, and let us have a discussion.
7 e que puseste profetas para pregarem de ti em Jerusalém, dizendo: Este é rei em Judá. Ora, o rei o ouvirá, segundo estas palavras; vem, pois, agora, e consultemos juntamente.
8 Then I sent to him, saying, No such things as you say are being done, they are only a fiction you have made up yourself.
8 Porém eu enviei a dizer-lhe: De tudo o que dizes coisa nenhuma sucedeu; mas tu, do teu coração, o inventas.
9 For they were hoping to put fear in us, saying, Their hands will become feeble and give up the work so that it may not get done. But now, O God, make my hands strong.
9 Porque todos eles nos procuravam atemorizar, dizendo: As suas mãos largarão a obra, e não se efetuará. Agora, pois, ó Deus, esforça as minhas mãos.
10 And I went to the house of Shemaiah, the son of Delaiah, the son of Mehetabel, who was shut up; and he said, Let us have a meeting in the house of God, inside the Temple, and let the doors be shut: for they will come to put you to death; truly, in the night they will come to put you to death.
10 E, entrando eu em casa de Semaías, filho de Delaías, o filho de Meetabel (que estava encerrado), disse ele: Vamos juntamente à Casa de Deus, ao meio do templo, e fechemos as portas do templo; porque virão matar-te; sim, de noite virão matar-te.
11 And I said, Am I the sort of man to go in flight? what man, in my position, would go into the Temple to keep himself safe? I will not go in.
11 Porém eu disse: Um homem, como eu, fugiria? E quem há, como eu, que entre no templo e viva? De maneira nenhuma entrarei.
12 Then it became clear to me that God had not sent him: he had given this word of a prophet against me himself: and Tobiah and Sanballat had given him money to do so.
12 E conheci que eis que não era Deus quem o enviara; mas essa profecia falou contra mim, porquanto Tobias e Sambalate o subornaram.
13 For this reason they had given him money, in order that I might be overcome by fear and do what he said and do wrong, and so they would have reason to say evil about me and put shame on me.
13 Para isso o subornaram, para me atemorizar, e para que eu assim fizesse e pecasse, para que tivessem alguma causa a fim de me infamarem e assim me vituperarem.
14 Keep in mind, O my God, Tobiah and Sanballat and what they did, and Noadiah, the woman prophet, and the rest of the prophets whose purpose was to put fear into me.
14 Lembra-te, meu Deus, de Tobias e de Sambalate, conforme estas suas obras, e também da profetisa Noadias e dos mais profetas que procuraram atemorizar-me.
15 So the wall was complete on the twenty-fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty-two days.
15 Acabou-se, pois, o muro aos vinte e cinco de elul, em cinqüenta e dois dias.
16 And when our haters had news of this, all the nations round about us were full of fear and were greatly shamed, for they saw that this work had been done by our God.
16 E sucedeu que, ouvindo-o todos os nossos inimigos, temeram todos os gentios que havia em roda de nós e abateram-se muito em seus próprios olhos; porque reconheceram que o nosso Deus fizera esta obra.
17 And further, in those days the chiefs of Judah sent a number of letters to Tobiah, and his letters came to them.
17 Também, naqueles dias, alguns nobres de Judá escreveram muitas cartas, que iam para Tobias, e as cartas de Tobias vinham para eles.
18 For in Judah there were a number of people who had made an agreement by oath with him, because he was the son-in-law of Shecaniah, the son of Arah; and his son Jehohanan had taken as his wife the daughter of Meshullam, the son of Berechiah.
18 Porque muitos em Judá se lhe ajuramentaram, porque era genro de Secanias, filho de Ará; e seu filho Joanã tomara a filha de Mesulão, filho de Berequias.
19 And they said much before me of the good he had done, and gave him accounts of my words. And Tobiah sent letters with the purpose of causing me fear.
19 Também as suas bondades contavam perante mim, e as minhas palavras lhe levavam a ele; portanto, Tobias escrevia cartas para me atemorizar.

Nehemiah 7

1 Now when the building of the wall was complete and I had put up the doors, and the door-keepers and the music-makers and the Levites had been given their places,
1 Sucedeu mais que, depois que o muro fora edificado, eu levantei as portas; e foram estabelecidos os porteiros, e os cantores, e os levitas.
2 I made my brother Hanani, and Hananiah, the ruler of the tower, responsible for the government of Jerusalem: for he was a man of good faith, fearing God more than most.
2 Eu nomeei a Hanani, meu irmão, e a Hananias, maioral da fortaleza, sobre Jerusalém, porque era homem fiel e temente a Deus, mais do que muitos;
3 And I said to them, Do not let the doors of Jerusalem be open till the sun is high; and while the watchmen are in their places, let the doors be shut and locked: and let the people of Jerusalem be put on watch, every one in his watch, opposite his house.
3 e disse-lhes: Não se abram as portas de Jerusalém até que o sol aqueça; e, enquanto assistirem ali, fechem as portas, e, vós, trancai-as; e ponham-se guardas dos moradores de Jerusalém, cada um na sua guarda e cada um diante da sua casa.
4 Now the town was wide and great: but the people in it were only a small number, and the houses had not been put up.
4 E era a cidade larga de espaço e grande, porém pouco povo havia dentro dela; e ainda as casas não estavam edificadas.
5 And my God put it into my heart to get together the rulers and the chiefs and the people so that they might be listed by families. And I came across a record of the names of those who came up at the first, and in it I saw these words:
5 Então, o meu Deus me pôs no coração que ajuntasse os nobres, e os magistrados, e o povo, para registrar as genealogias. E achei o livro da genealogia dos que subiram primeiro e assim achei escrito nele:
6 These are the people of the divisions of the kingdom, among those who had been made prisoners by Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, and taken away by him, who went back to Jerusalem and Judah, every one to his town;
6 Estes são os filhos da província, que subiram do cativeiro, os transportados, que transportara Nabucodonosor, rei de Babilônia; e voltaram para Jerusalém e para Judá, cada um para a sua cidade;
7 Who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number of the men of the people of Israel:

60 All the Nethinim and the children of Solomon’s servants were three hundred and ninety-two.
60 Todos os netineus e os filhos dos servos de Salomão, trezentos e noventa e dois.
61 All these were the people who went up from Tel-melah, Tel-harsha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer; but because they had no knowledge of their fathers’ families or offspring, it was not certain if they were Israelites:
61 Também estes subiram de Tel-Melá, Tel-Harsa, Querube, Adom e Imer, porém não puderam mostrar a casa de seus pais e a sua linhagem, se eram de Israel:
62 The children of Delaiah, the children of Tobiah, the children of Nekoda, six hundred and forty-two.
62 os filhos de Delaías, os filhos de Tobias, os filhos de Necoda, seiscentos e quarenta e dois.
63 And of the priests: the children of Hobaiah, the children of Hakkoz, the children of Barzillai, who was married to one of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite, and took their name.
63 E dos sacerdotes: os filhos de Habaías, os filhos de Coz, os filhos de Barzilai, que tomara uma mulher das filhas de Barzilai, o gileadita, e se chamou do nome delas.
64 They made search for their record among the lists of families, but their names were nowhere to be seen, so they were looked on as unclean and no longer priests.
64 Estes buscaram o seu registro, querendo contar a sua geração, porém não se achou; pelo que, como imundos, foram excluídos do sacerdócio.
65 And the Tirshatha said that they were not to have the most holy things for their food, till a priest came to give decision by the Urim and Thummim.
65 E o tirsata lhes disse que não comessem das coisas sagradas, até que se aprestasse um sacerdote com Urim e Tumim.
66 The number of all the people together was forty-two thousand, three hundred and sixty;
66 Toda essa congregação junta foi de quarenta e dois mil trezentos e sessenta,
67 As well as their men-servants and their women-servants, of whom there were seven thousand, three hundred and thirty-seven; and they had two hundred and forty-five men and women to make music.
67 afora os seus servos e as suas servas, que foram sete mil trezentos e trinta e sete; e tinham duzentos e quarenta e cinco cantores e cantoras.
68 They had seven hundred and thirty-six horses, two hundred and forty-five transport beasts;
68 Os seus cavalos, setecentos e trinta e seis; os seus mulos, duzentos e quarenta e cinco.
69 Four hundred and thirty-five camels, six thousand, seven hundred and twenty asses.
69 Camelos, quatrocentos e trinta e cinco; jumentos, seis mil setecentos e vinte.
70 And some of the heads of families gave money for the work. The Tirshatha gave into the store a thousand darics of gold, fifty basins, five hundred and thirty priests’ robes.
70 E uma parte dos cabeças dos pais deram para a obra; o tirsata deu para o tesouro, em ouro, mil daricos, cinqüenta bacias e quinhentas e trinta vestes sacerdotais.
71 And some of the heads of families gave into the store for the work twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand, two hundred pounds of silver.
71 E alguns mais dos cabeças dos pais deram para o tesouro da obra, em ouro, vinte mil daricos; e, em prata, dois mil e duzentos arráteis.
72 And that which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand pounds of silver, and sixty-seven priests’ robes.
72 E o que deu o resto do povo foi, em ouro, vinte mil daricos; e, em prata, dois mil arráteis; e sessenta e sete vestes sacerdotais.
73 So the priests and the Levites and the door-keepers and the music-makers and some of the people and the Nethinim, and all Israel, were living in their towns.
73 E habitaram os sacerdotes, e os levitas, e os porteiros, e os cantores, e alguns do povo, e os netineus, e todo o Israel nas suas cidades.

Nehemiah 8

1 And when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their towns. And all the people came together like one man into the wide place in front of the water-doorway; and they made a request to Ezra the scribe that he would put before them the book of the law of Moses which the Lord had given to Israel.
1 E chegado o sétimo mês, e estando os filhos de Israel nas suas cidades, todo o povo se ajuntou como um só homem, na praça, diante da Porta das Águas; e disseram a Esdras, o escriba, que trouxesse o livro da Lei de Moisés, que o SENHOR tinha ordenado a Israel.
2 And Ezra the priest put the law before the meeting of the people, before the men and women and all those who were able to take it in, on the first day of the seventh month.
2 E Esdras, o sacerdote, trouxe a Lei perante a congregação, assim de homens como de mulheres e de todos os sábios para ouvirem, no primeiro dia do sétimo mês.
3 He was reading it in the wide place in front of the water-doorway, from early morning till the middle of the day, in the hearing of all those men and women whose minds were able to take it in; and the ears of all the people were open to the book of the law.
3 E leu nela, diante da praça, que está diante da Porta das Águas, desde a alva até ao meio-dia, perante homens, e mulheres, e sábios; e os ouvidos de todo o povo estavam atentos ao livro da Lei.
4 And Ezra the scribe took his place on a tower of wood which they had made for the purpose; and by his side were placed Mattithiah and Shema and Anaiah and Uriah and Hilkiah and Maaseiah on the right; and on the left, Pedaiah and Mishael and Malchijah and Hashum and Hashbaddanah, Zechariah and Meshullam.
4 E Esdras, o escriba, estava sobre um púlpito de madeira, que fizeram para aquele fim; e estavam em pé junto a ele, à sua mão direita, Matitias, e Sema, e Anaías, e Urias, e Hilquias, e Maaséias; e à sua mão esquerda, Pedaías, e Misael, e Malquias, e Hasum, e Hasbadana, e Zacarias, e Mesulão.
5 And Ezra took the book, opening it before the eyes of all the people (for he was higher than the people); and when it was open, all the people got to their feet:
5 E Esdras abriu o livro perante os olhos de todo o povo; porque estava acima de todo o povo; e, abrindo-o ele, todo o povo se pôs em pé.
6 And Ezra gave praise to the Lord, the great God. And all the people in answer said, So be it, so be it; lifting up their hands; and with bent heads they gave worship to the Lord, going down on their faces to the earth.
6 E Esdras louvou o SENHOR, o grande Deus; e todo o povo respondeu: Amém! Amém! —,levantando as mãos; e inclinaram-se e adoraram o SENHOR, com o rosto em terra.
7 And Jeshua and Bani and Sherebiah and Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites made the law clear to the people: and the people kept in their places.
7 E Jesua, e Bani, e Serebias, e Jamim, e Acube, e Sabetai, e Hodias, e Maaséias, e Quelita, e Azarias, e Jozabade, e Hanã, e Pelaías, e os levitas ensinavam ao povo na Lei; e o povo estava no seu posto.
8 And they gave out the words of the book the law of God, clearly, and gave the sense of it, so that their minds were able to take it in.
8 E leram o livro, na Lei de Deus, e declarando e explicando o sentido, faziam que, lendo, se entendesse.
9 And Nehemiah, who was the Tirshatha, and Ezra, the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were the teachers of the people, said to all the people, This day is holy to the Lord your God; let there be no sorrow or weeping; for all the people were weeping on hearing the words of the law.
9 E Neemias (que era o tirsata), e o sacerdote Esdras, o escriba, e os levitas que ensinavam ao povo disseram a todo o povo: Este dia é consagrado ao SENHOR, vosso Deus, pelo que não vos lamenteis, nem choreis. Porque todo o povo chorava, ouvindo as palavras da Lei.
10 Then he said to them, Go away now, and take the fat for your food and the sweet for your drink, and send some to him for whom nothing is made ready: for this day is holy to our Lord: and let there be no grief in your hearts; for the joy of the Lord is your strong place.
10 Disse-lhes mais: Ide, e comei as gorduras, e bebei as doçuras, e enviai porções aos que não têm nada preparado para si; porque esse dia é consagrado ao nosso Senhor; portanto, não vos entristeçais, porque a alegria do SENHOR é a vossa força.
11 So the Levites made all the people quiet, saying, Be quiet, for the day is holy; and do not give way to grief.
11 E os levitas fizeram calar todo o povo, dizendo: Calai-vos, porque este dia é santo; por isso, não vos entristeçais.
12 And all the people went away to take food and drink, and to send food to others, and to be glad, because the words which were said to them had been made clear.
12 Então, todo o povo se foi a comer, e a beber, e a enviar porções, e a fazer grandes festas, porque entenderam as palavras que lhes fizeram saber.
13 And on the second day the heads of families of all the people and the priests and the Levites came together to Ezra the scribe, to give attention to the words of the law.
13 E, no dia seguinte, ajuntaram-se os cabeças dos pais de todo o povo, os sacerdotes e os levitas, a Esdras, o escriba, e isso para atentarem nas palavras da Lei.
14 And they saw that it was recorded in the law that the Lord had given orders by Moses, that the children of Israel were to have tents for their living-places in the feast of the seventh month:
14 E acharam escrito na Lei que o SENHOR ordenara pelo ministério de Moisés que os filhos de Israel habitassem em cabanas, na solenidade da festa, no sétimo mês.
15 And that they were to give out an order, and make it public in all their towns and in Jerusalem, saying, Go out to the mountain and get olive branches and branches of field olives and of myrtle, and palm branches and branches of thick trees, to make tents, as it says in the book.
15 Assim, o publicaram e fizeram passar pregão por todas as suas cidades e em Jerusalém, dizendo: Saí ao monte e trazei ramos de oliveira, e ramos de zambujeiros, e ramos de murtas, e ramos de palmeiras, e ramos de árvores espessas, para fazer cabanas, como está escrito.
16 And the people went out and got them and made themselves tents, every one on the roof of his house, and in the open spaces and in the open squares of the house of God, and in the wide place of the water-doorway, and the wide place of the doorway of Ephraim.
16 Saiu, pois, o povo, e de tudo trouxeram e fizeram para si cabanas, cada um no seu terraço, e nos seus pátios, e nos átrios da Casa de Deus, e na praça da Porta das Águas, e na praça da Porta de Efraim.
17 All the people who had been prisoners and had come back, made tents and were living in them: for from the time of Jeshua, the son of Nun, till that day, the children of Israel had not done so. And there was very great joy.
17 E toda a congregação dos que voltaram do cativeiro fez cabanas e habitou nas cabanas; porque nunca fizeram assim os filhos de Israel, desde os dias de Josué, filho de Num, até àquele dia; e houve mui grande alegria.
18 And day by day, from the first day till the last, he was reading from the book of the law of God. And they kept the feast for seven days: and on the eighth day there was a holy meeting, as it is ordered in the law.
18 E, de dia em dia, ele lia o livro da Lei de Deus, desde o primeiro dia até ao derradeiro; e celebraram a solenidade da festa sete dias e, no oitavo dia, a festa do encerramento, segundo o rito.

Nehemiah 9

1 Now on the twenty-fourth day of this month the children of Israel came together, taking no food and putting haircloth and dust on their bodies.
1 E, no dia vinte e quatro deste mês, se ajuntaram os filhos de Israel com jejum e com pano de saco e traziam terra sobre si.
2 And the seed of Israel made themselves separate from all the men of other nations, publicly requesting forgiveness for their sins and the wrongdoing of their fathers.
2 E a geração de Israel se apartou de todos os estranhos, e puseram-se em pé e fizeram confissão dos seus pecados e das iniqüidades de seus pais.
3 And for a fourth part of the day, upright in their places, they were reading from the book of the law of their God; and for a fourth part of the day they were requesting forgiveness and worshipping the Lord their God.
3 E, levantando-se no seu posto, leram no livro da Lei do SENHOR, seu Deus, uma quarta parte do dia; e, na outra quarta parte, fizeram confissão; e adoraram o SENHOR, seu Deus.
4 Then Jeshua, and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani took their places on the steps of the Levites, crying in a loud voice to the Lord their God.
4 E Jesua, Bani, Cadmiel, Sebanias, Buni, Serebias, Bani e Quenani se puseram em pé no lugar alto dos levitas e clamaram em alta voz ao SENHOR, seu Deus.
5 Then the Levites, Jeshua, and Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah said, Get up and give praise to the Lord your God for ever and ever. Praise be to your great name which is lifted up high over all blessing and praise.
5 E os levitas, Jesua, Cadmiel, Bani, Hasabnéias, Serebias, Hodias, Sebanias e Petaías disseram: Levantai-vos, bendizei ao SENHOR, vosso Deus, de eternidade em eternidade; ora, bendigam o nome da tua glória, que está levantado sobre toda bênção e louvor.
6 You are the Lord, even you only; you have made heaven, the heaven of heavens with all their armies, the earth and all things in it, the seas and everything in them; and you keep them from destruction: and the armies of heaven are your worshippers.
6 Tu só és SENHOR, tu fizeste o céu, o céu dos céus e todo o seu exército, a terra e tudo quanto nela há, os mares e tudo quanto neles há; e tu os guardas em vida a todos, e o exército dos céus te adora.
7 You are the Lord, the God, who took Abram and made him yours, guiding him from Ur of the Chaldees, and gave him the name of Abraham;
7 Tu és SENHOR, o Deus, que elegeste Abrão, e o tiraste de Ur dos caldeus, e lhe puseste por nome Abraão.
8 You saw that his heart was true to you, and made an agreement with him to give the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Jebusite and the Girgashite, even to give it to his seed, and you have done what you said; for righteousness is yours:
8 E achaste o seu coração fiel perante ti e fizeste com ele o concerto, que lhe darias a terra dos cananeus, e dos heteus, e dos amorreus, e dos ferezeus, e dos jebuseus, e dos girgaseus, para a dares à sua semente; e confirmaste as tuas palavras, porquanto és justo.
9 And you saw the trouble of our fathers in Egypt, and their cry came to your ears by the Red Sea;
9 E viste a aflição de nossos pais no Egito e ouviste o seu clamor junto ao mar Vermelho.
10 And you did signs and wonders on Pharaoh and all his servants and all the people of his land; for you saw how cruel they were to them. So you got yourself a name as it is today.
10 E mostraste sinais e prodígios a Faraó, e a todos os seus servos, e a todo o povo da sua terra, porque soubeste que soberbamente os trataram; e assim te adquiriste nome, como hoje se vê.
11 By you the sea was parted before them, so that they went through the sea on dry land; and those who went after them went down into the deep, like a stone into great waters.
11 E o mar fendeste perante eles, e passaram pelo meio do mar, em seco; e lançaste os seus perseguidores nas profundezas, como uma pedra nas águas violentas.
12 And you went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light on the way they were to go.
12 E os guiaste, de dia por uma coluna de nuvem e de noite por uma coluna de fogo, para os alumiares no caminho por onde haviam de ir.
13 And you came down on Mount Sinai, and your voice came to them from heaven, giving them right decisions and true laws, good rules and orders:
13 E sobre o monte de Sinai desceste, e falaste com eles desde os céus, e deste-lhes juízos retos e leis verdadeiras, estatutos e mandamentos bons.
14 And you gave them word of your holy Sabbath, and gave them orders and rules and a law, by the hand of Moses your servant:
14 E o teu santo sábado lhes fizeste conhecer; e preceitos, e estatutos, e lei lhes mandaste pelo ministério de Moisés, teu servo.
15 And you gave them bread from heaven when they were in need, and made water come out of the rock for their drink, and gave them orders to go in and take for their heritage the land which your hand had been lifted up to give them.
15 E pão dos céus lhes deste na sua fome e água da rocha lhes produziste na sua sede; e lhes disseste que entrassem para possuírem a terra pela qual alçaste a tua mão, que lha havias de dar.
16 But they and our fathers, in their pride, made their necks stiff, and gave no attention to your orders,
16 Porém eles, nossos pais, se houveram soberbamente, e endureceram a sua cerviz, e não deram ouvidos aos teus mandamentos.
17 And would not do them, and gave no thought to the wonders you had done among them; but made their necks stiff, and turning away from you, made a captain over themselves to take them back to their prison in Egypt: but you are a God of forgiveness, full of grace and pity, slow to wrath and great in mercy, and you did not give them up.
17 E recusaram ouvir-te, e não se lembraram das tuas maravilhas, que lhes fizeste, e endureceram a sua cerviz, e na sua rebelião levantaram um chefe, a fim de voltarem para a sua servidão; porém tu, ó Deus perdoador, clemente e misericordioso, tardio em irar-te, e grande em beneficência, tu os não desamparaste,
18 Even when they had made for themselves an ox of metal, and said, This is your God who took you up out of Egypt, and had done so much to make you angry;
18 ainda mesmo quando eles fizeram para si um bezerro de fundição, e disseram: Este é o teu Deus, que te tirou do Egito, e cometeram grandes blasfêmias;
19 Even then, in your great mercy, you did not give them up in the waste land: the pillar of cloud still went before them by day, guiding them on their way, and the pillar of fire by night, to give them light, and make clear the way they were to go.
19 todavia, tu, pela multidão das tuas misericórdias, os não deixaste no deserto. A coluna de nuvem nunca deles se apartou de dia, para os guiar pelo caminho, nem a coluna de fogo de noite, para os alumiar e mostrar o caminho por onde haviam de ir.
20 And you gave your good spirit to be their teacher, and did not keep back your manna from their mouths, and gave them water when they had need of it.
20 E deste o teu bom espírito, para os ensinar; e o teu maná não retiraste da sua boca; e água lhes deste na sua sede.
21 Truly, for forty years you were their support in the waste land, and they were in need of nothing; their clothing did not get old or their feet become tired.
21 Desse modo os sustentaste quarenta anos no deserto; falta nenhuma tiveram; as suas vestes não se envelheceram, e os seus pés não se incharam.
22 And you gave them kingdoms and peoples, making distribution to them in every part of the land: so they took for their heritage the land of Sihon, even the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og, king of Bashan.
22 Também lhes deste reinos e povos e os repartiste em porções; e eles possuíram a terra de Seom, a saber, a terra do rei de Hesbom, e a terra de Ogue, rei de Basã.
23 And you made their children as great in number as the stars of heaven, and took them into the land, of which you had said to their fathers that they were to go in and take it for themselves.
23 E multiplicaste os seus filhos como as estrelas do céu e trouxeste-os à terra de que tinhas dito a seus pais que entrariam nela para a possuírem.
24 So the children went in and took the land, and you overcame before them the people of the land, the Canaanites, and gave them up into their hands, with their kings and the people of the land, so that they might do with them whatever it was their pleasure to do.
24 Assim, entraram nela os filhos e tomaram aquela terra; e abateste perante eles os moradores da terra, os cananeus, e lhos entregaste na mão, como também os reis e os povos da terra, para fazerem deles conforme a sua vontade.
25 And they took walled towns and a fat land, and became the owners of houses full of all good things, water-holes cut in the rock, vine-gardens and olive-gardens and a wealth of fruit-trees: so they had food enough and became fat, and had joy in the good you gave them.
25 E tomaram cidades fortes e terra gorda e possuíram casas cheias de toda fartura, cisternas cavadas, vinhas, e olivais, e árvores de mantimento, em abundância; e comeram, e se fartaram, e engordaram, e viveram em delícias, pela tua grande bondade.
26 But they were hard-hearted, and went against your authority, turning their backs on your law, and putting to death your prophets, who gave witness against them with the purpose of turning them back again to you, and they did much to make you angry.
26 Porém se obstinaram, e se revoltaram contra ti, e lançaram a tua lei para trás das suas costas, e mataram os teus profetas, que protestavam contra eles, para que voltassem para ti; assim fizeram grandes abominações.
27 And so you gave them up into the hands of their haters who were cruel to them: and in the time of their trouble, when they made their prayer to you, you gave ear to them from heaven; and in your great mercy gave them saviours, who made them free from the hands of their haters.
27 Pelo que os entregaste na mão dos seus angustiadores, que os angustiaram; mas no tempo de sua angústia, clamando a ti, desde os céus tu os ouviste; e, segundo a tua grande misericórdia, lhes deste libertadores que os libertaram da mão de seus angustiadores.
28 But when they had rest, they did evil again before you: so you gave them into the hands of their haters, who had rule over them: but when they came back and made their prayer to you, you gave ear to them from heaven; again and again, in your mercy, you gave them salvation;
28 Porém, em tendo repouso, tornavam a fazer o mal diante de ti; e tu os deixavas na mão dos seus inimigos, para que dominassem sobre eles; e, convertendo-se eles e clamando a ti, tu os ouviste desde os céus e, segundo a tua misericórdia, os livraste muitas vezes.
29 And gave witness against them so that you might make them come back again to your law: but their hearts were lifted up, and they gave no attention to your orders and went against your decisions (which, if a man keeps them, will be life to him), and turning their backs on you, made their necks stiff and did not give ear.
29 E protestaste contra eles, para que voltassem para a tua lei; porém eles se houveram soberbamente e não deram ouvidos aos teus mandamentos, mas pecaram contra os teus juízos, pelos quais o homem que os cumprir viverá; e retiraram os seus ombros, e endureceram a sua cerviz, e não ouviram.
30 Year after year you put up with them, and gave witness against them by your spirit through your prophets: still they did not give ear: and so you gave them up into the hands of the peoples of the lands.
30 Porém estendeste a tua benignidade sobre eles por muitos anos e protestaste contra eles pelo teu Espírito, pelo ministério dos teus profetas; porém eles não deram ouvidos; pelo que os entregaste na mão dos povos das terras.
31 Even then, in your great mercy, you did not put an end to them completely, or give them up; for you are a God of grace and mercy.
31 Mas, pela tua grande misericórdia, não os destruíste nem desamparaste; porque és um Deus clemente e misericordioso.
32 And now, our God, the great, the strong, the God who is to be feared, who keeps faith and mercy, let not all this trouble seem small to you, which has come on us, and on our kings and our rulers and on our priests and our prophets and our fathers and on all your people from the time of the kings of Assyria till this day.
32 Agora, pois, ó Deus nosso, ó Deus grande, poderoso e terrível, que guardas o concerto e a beneficência, não tenhas em pouca conta toda a aflição que nos alcançou a nós, e aos nossos reis, e aos nossos príncipes, e aos nossos sacerdotes, e aos nossos profetas, e aos nossos pais, e a todo o teu povo, desde os dias dos reis da Assíria até ao dia de hoje.
33 But still, you have been in the right in everything which has come on us; you have been true to us, but we have done evil:
33 Porém tu és justo em tudo quanto tem vindo sobre nós; porque tu fielmente te houveste, e nós impiamente nos houvemos.
34 And our kings, our rulers, our priests, and our fathers have not kept your law or given attention to your orders and your witness, with which you gave witness against them.
34 E os nossos reis, os nossos príncipes, os nossos sacerdotes e os nossos pais não guardaram a tua lei e não deram ouvidos aos teus mandamentos e aos teus testemunhos, que testificaste contra eles.
35 For they have not been your servants in their kingdom, and in all the good things you gave them, and in the great and fat land you gave them, and they have not been turned away from their evil-doing.
35 Porque eles nem no seu reino, nem na muita abundância de bens que lhes deste, nem na terra espaçosa e gorda que puseste diante deles te serviram, nem se converteram de suas más obras.
36 Now, today, we are servants, and as for the land which you gave to our fathers, so that the produce of it and the good might be theirs, see, we are servants in it:
36 Eis que hoje somos servos; e até na terra que deste a nossos pais, para comerem o seu fruto e o seu bem, eis que somos servos nela.
37 And it gives much increase to the kings whom you have put over us because of our sins: and they have power over our bodies and over our cattle at their pleasure, and we are in great trouble.
37 E ela multiplica os seus produtos para os reis que puseste sobre nós por causa dos nossos pecados; e, conforme a sua vontade, dominam sobre os nossos corpos e sobre o nosso gado; e estamos numa grande angústia.
38 And because of all this we are making an agreement in good faith, and putting it in writing; and our rulers, our Levites, and our priests are putting their names to it.
38 E, com tudo isso, fizemos um firme concerto e o escrevemos; e selaram-no os nossos príncipes, os nossos levitas e os nossos sacerdotes.

28 And the rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the door-keepers, the music-makers, the Nethinim, and all those who had made themselves separate from the peoples of the lands, to keep the law of God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, everyone who had knowledge and wisdom;
28 E o resto do povo, os sacerdotes, os levitas, os porteiros, os cantores, os netineus e todos os que se tinham separado dos povos das terras para a Lei de Deus, suas mulheres, seus filhos e suas filhas, todos os sábios e os que tinham capacidade para entender
29 They were united with their brothers, their rulers, and put themselves under a curse and an oath, to keep their steps in the way of God’s law, which was given by Moses, the servant of God, and to keep and do all the orders of the Lord, our Lord, and his decisions and his rules;
29 firmemente aderiram a seus irmãos, os mais nobres de entre eles, e convieram num anátema e num juramento, de que andariam na Lei de Deus, que foi dada pelo ministério de Moisés, servo de Deus; e de que guardariam e cumpririam todos os mandamentos do SENHOR, nosso Senhor, e os seus juízos e os seus estatutos;
30 And that we would not give our daughters to the peoples of the lands, or take their daughters for our sons;
30 e que não daríamos as nossas filhas aos povos da terra, nem tomaríamos as filhas deles para os nossos filhos;
31 And if the peoples of the lands come to do trade in goods or food on the Sabbath day, that we would do no trade with them on the Sabbath or on a holy day: and that in the seventh year we would take no payment from any debtor.
31 e de que, trazendo os povos da terra no dia de sábado algumas fazendas e qualquer grão para venderem, nada tomaríamos deles no sábado, nem no dia santificado; e livre deixaríamos o ano sétimo e toda e qualquer cobrança.
32 And we made rules for ourselves, taxing ourselves a third of a shekel every year for the upkeep of the house of our God;
32 Também sobre nós pusemos preceitos, impondo-nos cada ano a terça parte de um siclo, para o ministério da Casa do nosso Deus;
33 For the holy bread, and for the regular meal offering and the regular burned offering on the Sabbaths and at the new moon and the fixed feasts, and for the sin-offerings to take away the sin of Israel, and for all the work of the house of our God.
33 para os pães da proposição, e para a contínua oferta de manjares, e para o contínuo holocausto dos sábados, das luas novas, e para as festas solenes, e para as coisas sagradas, e para os sacrifícios pelo pecado, para reconciliar a Israel, e para toda a obra da Casa do nosso Deus.
34 And we, the priests and the Levites and the people, made selection, by the decision of the Lord, of those who were to take the wood offering into the house of God, by families at the regular times, year by year, to be burned on the altar of the Lord our God, as it is recorded in the law;
34 Também lançamos as sortes entre os sacerdotes, levitas e o povo, acerca da oferta da lenha que se havia de trazer à Casa do nosso Deus, segundo as casas de nossos pais, a tempos determinados, de ano em ano, para se queimar sobre o altar do SENHOR, nosso Deus, como está escrito na Lei.
35 And to take the first-fruits of our land, and the first-fruits of every sort of tree, year by year, into the house of the Lord;
35 E que também traríamos as primeiras novidades da nossa terra e todos os primeiros frutos de todas as árvores, de ano em ano, à Casa do SENHOR;
36 As well as the first of our sons and of our cattle, as it is recorded in the law, and the first lambs of our herds and of our flocks, which are to be taken to the house of our God, to the priests who are servants in the house of our God:
36 e os primogênitos dos nossos filhos e os do nosso gado, como está escrito na Lei; e que os primogênitos das nossas vacas e das nossas ovelhas traríamos à Casa do nosso Deus, aos sacerdotes que ministram na Casa do SENHOR;
37 And that we would take the first of our rough meal, and our lifted offerings, and the fruit of every sort of tree, and wine and oil, to the priests, to the rooms of the house of our God; and the tenth of the produce of our land to the Levites; for they, the Levites, take a tenth in all the towns of our ploughed land.
37 e que as primícias da nossa massa, e as nossas ofertas alçadas, e o fruto de toda árvore, e o mosto, e o azeite traríamos aos sacerdotes, às câmaras da Casa do nosso Deus; e os dízimos da nossa terra aos levitas; e que os levitas pagariam os dízimos em todas as cidades da nossa lavoura;
38 And the priest, the son of Aaron, is to be with the Levites, when the Levites take the tenths: and the Levites are to take a tenth of the tenths into the house of our God, to the rooms, into the store-house;
38 e que o sacerdote, filho de Arão, estaria com os levitas quando os levitas recebessem os dízimos, e que os levitas trariam os dízimos dos dízimos à Casa do nosso Deus, às câmaras da casa do tesouro.
39 For the children of Israel and the children of Levi are to take the lifted offering of the grain and wine and oil into the rooms where the vessels of the holy place are, together with the priests and the door-keepers and the makers of music: and we will not give up caring for the house of our God.
39 Porque àquelas câmaras os filhos de Israel e os filhos de Levi devem trazer ofertas alçadas do grão, do mosto e do azeite; porquanto ali estão os utensílios do santuário, como também os sacerdotes que ministram, e os porteiros, e os cantores; e que assim não desampararíamos a Casa do nosso Deus.

Nehemiah 11

1 And the rulers of the people were living in Jerusalem: the rest of the people made selection, by the decision of chance, of one out of every ten to be living in Jerusalem, the holy town; the other nine to go to the other towns.
1 E os príncipes do povo habitaram em Jerusalém, mas o resto do povo lançou sortes para tirar um de dez, para que habitasse na santa cidade de Jerusalém, e as nove partes, nas outras cidades.
2 And the people gave a blessing to all the men who were freely offering to take up their places in Jerusalem.
2 E o povo bendisse a todos os homens que voluntariamente se ofereciam para habitar em Jerusalém.
3 Now these are the chiefs of the divisions of the country who were living in Jerusalem: but in the towns of Judah everyone was living on his heritage in the towns, that is, Israel, the priests, the Levites, the Nethinim, and the children of Solomon’s servants.
3 E estes são os chefes da província que habitaram em Jerusalém (porém nas cidades de Judá habitou cada um na sua possessão, nas suas cidades, a saber, Israel, os sacerdotes, e os levitas, e os netineus, e os filhos dos servos de Salomão).
4 And in Jerusalem there were living certain of the children of Judah and of Benjamin. Of the children of Judah: Athaiah, the son of Uzziah, the son of Zechariah, the son of Amariah, the son of Shephatiah, the son of Mahalalel, of the children of Perez;
4 Habitaram, pois, em Jerusalém alguns dos filhos de Judá e dos filhos de Benjamim. Dos filhos de Judá: Ataías, filho de Uzias, filho de Zacarias, filho de Amarias, filho de Sefatias, filho de Maalalel, dos filhos de Perez;

19 In addition the door-keepers, Akkub, Talmon, and their brothers who kept watch at the doors, were a hundred and seventy-two.
19 E os porteiros: Acube, Talmom, com seus irmãos, os guardas das portas, cento e setenta e dois.
20 And the rest of Israel, of the priests, the Levites, were in all the towns of Judah, every one in his heritage.
20 E o resto de Israel, dos sacerdotes e levitas, esteve em todas as cidades de Judá, cada um na sua herdade.
21 But the Nethinim were living in the Ophel; and Ziha and Gishpa were over the Nethinim.
21 E os netineus habitaram em Ofel; e Zia e Gispa presidiam sobre os netineus.
22 And the overseer of the Levites at Jerusalem was Uzzi, the son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Mica, of the sons of Asaph, the music-makers, who was over the business of the house of God.
22 E o superintendente dos levitas em Jerusalém foi Uzi, filho de Bani, filho de Hasabias, filho de Matanias, filho de Mica, dos filhos de Asafe, os cantores, ao serviço da Casa de Deus.
23 For there was an order from the king about them and a regular amount for the music-makers, for their needs day by day.
23 Porque havia um mandado do rei acerca deles, a saber, uma certa porção para os cantores, cada qual no seu dia.
24 And Pethahiah, the son of Meshezabel, of the sons of Zerah, the son of Judah, was the king’s servant in everything to do with the people.
24 E Petaías, filho de Mesezabel, dos filhos de Zerá, filho de Judá, estava à mão do rei, em todos os negócios do povo.
25 And for the daughter-towns with their fields, some of the men of Judah were living in Kiriath-arba and its daughter-towns, and in Dibon and its daughter-towns, and in Jekabzeel and its daughter-towns,

Nehemiah 12

1 Now these are the priests and the Levites who went up with Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua: Seraiah, Jeremiah, Ezra,
1 Estes são os sacerdotes e levitas que subiram com Zorobabel, filho de Sealtiel, e com Jesua: Seraías, Jeremias, Esdras,
2 Amariah, Malluch, Hattush,
2 Amarias, Maluque, Hatus,
3 Shecaniah, Rehum, Meremoth,
3 Secanias, Reum, Meremote,
4 Iddo, Ginnethoi, Abijah,
4 Ido, Ginetoi, Abias,
5 Mijamin, Maadiah, Bilgah,
5 Miamim, Maadias, Bilga,
6 Shemaiah, and Joiarib, Jedaiah,
6 Semaías, Joiaribe, Jedaías,
7 Sallu, Amok, Hilkiah, Jedaiah. These were the chiefs of the priests and of their brothers in the days of Jeshua.
7 Salu, Amoque, Hilquias e Jedaías; estes foram os chefes dos sacerdotes e de seus irmãos, nos dias de Jesua.
8 And the Levites: Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel, Sherebiah, Judah, and Mattaniah, who was over the music-makers, he and his brothers.
8 E foram os levitas: Jesua, Binui, Cadmiel, Serebias, Judá e Matanias; este e seus irmãos presidiam sobre os louvores.
9 And Bakbukiah and Unno, their brothers, were opposite them in their watches.
9 E Baquebuquias e Uni, seus irmãos, estavam defronte dele nas guardas.
10 And Jeshua was the father of Joiakim, and Joiakim was the father of Eliashib, and Eliashib was the father of Joiada,
10 E Jesua gerou a Joiaquim, e Joiaquim gerou a Eliasibe, e Eliasibe gerou a Joiada,
11 And Joiada was the father of Jonathan, and Jonathan was the father of Jaddua.
11 e Joiada gerou a Jônatas, e Jônatas gerou a Jadua.
12 And in the days of Joiakim there were priests, heads of families: of Seraiah, Meraiah; of Jeremiah, Hananiah;
12 E, nos dias de Joiaquim, foram sacerdotes, chefes das casas dos pais: de Seraías, Meraías; de Jeremias, Hananias;
13 Of Ezra, Meshullam; of Amariah, Jehohanan;
13 de Esdras, Mesulão; de Amarias, Joanã;
14 Of Malluchi, Jonathan; of Shebaniah, Joseph;
14 de Maluqui, Jônatas; de Sebanias, José;
15 Of Harim, Adna; of Meraioth, Helkai;
15 de Harim, Adna; de Meraiote, Helcai;
16 Of Iddo, Zechariah; of Ginnethon, Meshullam;
16 de Ido, Zacarias; de Ginetom, Mesulão;
17 Of Abijah, Zichri; of Miniamin, of Moadiah, Piltai;
17 de Abias, Zicri; de Miniamim e de Moadias, Piltai;
18 Of Bilgah, Shammua; of Shemaiah, Jehonathan;
18 de Bilga, Samua; de Semaías, Jônatas;
19 And of Joiarib, Mattenai; of Jedaiah, Uzzi;
19 e de Joiaribe, Matenai; de Jedaías, Uzi;
20 Of Sallai, Kallai; of Amok, Eber;
20 de Salai, Calai; de Amoque, Héber;
21 Of Hilkiah, Hashabiah; of Jedaiah, Nethanel.
21 de Hilquias, Hasabias; de Jedaías, Netanel.
22 The Levites in the days of Eliashib, Joiada, and Johanan, and Jaddua, were listed as heads of families; and the priests, when Darius the Persian was king.
22 Dos levitas foram, nos dias de Eliasibe, inscritos como chefes das casas dos pais, Joiada, e Jonã, e Jadua, como também os sacerdotes, até ao reinado de Dario, o persa.
23 The sons of Levi, heads of families, were recorded in the book of the histories, even till the days of Johanan, the son of Eliashib.
23 Os filhos de Levi foram inscritos como chefes das casas dos pais no livro das crônicas, até aos dias de Joanã, filho de Eliasibe.
24 And the chiefs of the Levites: Hashabiah, Sherebiah, and Jeshua, the son of Kadmiel, with their brothers opposite them, to give blessing and praise as ordered by David, the man of God, watch against watch.
24 Foram, pois, os chefes dos levitas: Hasabias, Serebias e Jesua, filho de Cadmiel; e seus irmãos estavam defronte deles para louvarem e darem graças, segundo o mandado de Davi, homem de Deus, guarda contra guarda.
25 Mattaniah, and Bakbukiah, Obadiah, Meshullam, Talmon, Akkub, were door-keepers keeping the watch at the store-houses of the doors.
25 Matanias, Baquebuquias, Obadias, Mesulão, Talmom e Acube eram porteiros que faziam a guarda às tesourarias das portas.
26 These were in the days of Joiakim, the son of Jeshua, the son of Jozadak, and in the days of Nehemiah the ruler and of Ezra the priest, the scribe.
26 Estes foram nos dias de Joiaquim, filho de Jesua, filho de Jozadaque, como também nos dias de Neemias, o governador, e do sacerdote Esdras, o escriba.
27 And when the time came for the wall of Jerusalem to be made holy, they sent for the Levites out of all their places to come to Jerusalem, to keep the feast with joy, and with praise and melody, with brass and corded instruments of music.
27 E, na dedicação dos muros de Jerusalém, buscaram os levitas de todos os seus lugares, para os trazerem, a fim de fazerem a dedicação com alegria, louvores, canto, saltérios, alaúdes e harpas.
28 And the sons of the music-makers came together from the lowland round about Jerusalem and from the daughter-towns of the Netophathites,
28 E se ajuntaram os filhos dos cantores, tanto da campina dos arredores de Jerusalém como das aldeias de Netofa,
29 And from Beth-gilgal and from the fields of Geba and Azmaveth: for the music-makers had made daughter-towns for themselves round about Jerusalem.
29 como também da casa de Gilgal e dos campos de Gibeá e Azmavete; porque os cantores tinham edificado para si aldeias nos arredores de Jerusalém.
30 And the priests and the Levites made themselves clean; and they made the people clean, and the doorways and the wall.
30 E purificaram-se os sacerdotes e os levitas; e logo purificaram o povo, e as portas, e o muro.
31 Then I made the rulers of Judah come up on the wall, and I put in position two great bands of them who gave praise, walking in ordered lines; one went to the right on the wall, in the direction of the doorway where the waste was put;
31 Então, fiz subir os príncipes de Judá sobre o muro e ordenei dois grandes coros e procissões, sendo um à mão direita sobre o muro da banda da Porta do Monturo.
32 And after them went Hoshaiah and half of the rulers of Judah,
32 E, após eles, ia Hosaías, e a metade dos príncipes de Judá,
33 And Azariah, Ezra, and Meshullam,
33 e Azarias, Esdras, Mesulão,
34 Judah and Benjamin and Shemaiah and Jeremiah,
34 Judá, Benjamim, Semaías e Jeremias;
35 And certain of the priests’ sons with wind instruments; Zechariah, the son of Jonathan, the son of Shemaiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Micaiah, the son of Zaccur, the son of Asaph,
35 e dos filhos dos sacerdotes, com trombetas: Zacarias, filho de Jônatas, filho de Semaías, filho de Matanias, filho de Micaías, filho de Zacur, filho de Asafe,
36 And his brothers, Shemaiah, and Azarel, Milalai, Gilalai, Maai, Nethanel and Judah, Hanani, with the music-instruments of David, the man of God; and Ezra the scribe was at their head;
36 e seus irmãos, Semaías, Azarel, Milalai, Gilalai, Maai, Netanel, Judá e Hanani, com os instrumentos músicos de Davi, homem de Deus; e Esdras, o escriba, ia adiante deles.
37 And by the doorway of the fountain and straight in front of them, they went up by the steps of the town of David, at the slope up of the wall, over the house of David, as far as the water-doorway to the east.
37 Indo assim para a Porta da Fonte e defronte deles, subiram as escadas da Cidade de Davi pela subida do muro, desde cima da casa de Davi até à Porta das Águas, da banda do oriente.
38 And the other band of those who gave praise went to the left, and I went after them with half the people, on the wall, over the tower of the ovens, as far as the wide wall;
38 E o segundo coro ia em frente, e eu, após ele; e a metade do povo ia sobre o muro, desde a Torre dos Fornos até à Muralha Larga;
39 And over the doorway of Ephraim and by the old door and the fish door and the tower of Hananel and the tower of Hammeah, as far as the sheep door: and at the doorway of the watchmen they came to a stop.
39 e desde a Porta de Efraim, e desde a Porta Velha, e desde a Porta do Peixe e a Torre de Hananel e a Torre de Meá até à Porta do Gado; e pararam à Porta da Prisão.
40 So the two bands of those who gave praise took up their positions in the house of God, and I and half of the chiefs with me:
40 Então, ambos os coros pararam na Casa de Deus, como também eu e a metade dos magistrados comigo.
41 And the priests; Eliakim, Maaseiah, Miniamin, Micaiah, Elioenai, Zechariah, and Hananiah, with wind instruments;
41 E os sacerdotes Eliaquim, Maaséias, Miniamim, Micaías, Elioenai, Zacarias e Hananias iam com trombetas,
42 And Maaseiah and Shemaiah and Eleazar and Uzzi and Jehohanan and Malchijah and Elam and Ezer. And the makers of melody made their voices loud, with Jezrahiah their overseer.
42 como também Maaséias, e Semaías, e Eleazar, e Uzi, e Joanã, e Malquias, e Elão, e Ezer; e faziam-se ouvir os cantores, juntamente com Jezraías, o superintendente.
43 And on that day they made great offerings and were glad; for God had made them glad with great joy; and the women and the children were glad with them: so that the joy of Jerusalem came to the ears of those who were far off.
43 E sacrificaram, no mesmo dia, grandes sacrifícios e se alegraram, porque Deus os alegrara com grande alegria; e até as mulheres e os meninos se alegraram, de modo que a alegria de Jerusalém se ouviu até de longe.
44 And on that day certain men were put over the rooms where the things which had been given were stored, for the lifted offerings and the first-fruits and the tenths, and to take into them the amounts, from the fields of every town, fixed by the law for the priests and the Levites: for Judah was glad on account of the priests and the Levites who were in their places.
44 Também, no mesmo dia, se nomearam homens sobre as câmaras, para os tesouros, para as ofertas alçadas, para as primícias e para os dízimos, para ajuntarem nelas, das terras das cidades, as porções designadas pela Lei para os sacerdotes e para os levitas; porque Judá estava alegre por causa dos sacerdotes e dos levitas que assistiam ali.
45 And they kept the watch of their God, and were responsible for making things clean, and so did the music-makers and the door-keepers, as it was ordered by David and Solomon his son.
45 E faziam a guarda do seu Deus e a guarda da purificação; como também os cantores e porteiros, conforme o mandado de Davi e de seu filho Salomão.
46 For in the days of David and Asaph in the past, there was a master of the music, and songs of blessing and praise to God.
46 Porque, já nos dias de Davi e de Asafe, desde a antiguidade, havia chefes dos cantores, e cânticos de louvores, e ação de graças a Deus.
47 And all Israel in the days of Zerubbabel and in the days of Nehemiah gave what was needed by the music-makers and the door-keepers day by day: and they made the offerings holy for the Levites; and the Levites did the same for the sons of Aaron.
47 Pelo que todo o Israel, já nos dias de Zorobabel e nos dias de Neemias, dava as porções dos cantores e dos porteiros, a cada um no seu dia; e santificavam as porções para os levitas, e os levitas santificavam para os filhos de Arão.

Nehemiah 13

1 On that day there was a reading from the book of Moses in the hearing of the people; and they saw that it said in the book that no Ammonite or Moabite might ever come into the meeting of God;
1 Naquele dia, leu-se no livro de Moisés aos ouvidos do povo; e achou-se escrito nele que os amonitas e os moabitas não entrassem jamais na congregação de Deus,
2 Because they did not give the children of Israel bread and water when they came to them, but got Balaam to put a curse on them: though the curse was turned into a blessing by our God.
2 porquanto não tinham saído ao encontro dos filhos de Israel com pão e água; antes, assalariaram contra eles a Balaão para os amaldiçoar, ainda que o nosso Deus converteu a maldição em bênção.
3 So after hearing the law, they took out of Israel all the mixed people.
3 Sucedeu, pois, que, ouvindo eles esta lei, apartaram de Israel toda mistura.
4 Now before this, Eliashib the priest, who had been placed over the rooms of the house of our God, being a friend of Tobiah,
4 Ora, antes disso, Eliasibe, sacerdote, que presidia sobre a câmara da Casa do nosso Deus, se tinha aparentado com Tobias;
5 Had made ready for him a great room, where at one time they kept the meal offerings, the perfume, and the vessels and the tenths of the grain and wine and oil which were given by order to the Levites and the music-makers and the door-keepers, and the lifted offerings for the priests.
5 e fizera-lhe uma câmara grande, onde dantes se metiam as ofertas de manjares, o incenso, os utensílios e os dízimos do grão, do mosto e do azeite, que se ordenaram para os levitas, e cantores, e porteiros, como também a oferta alçada para os sacerdotes.
6 But all this time I was not at Jerusalem: for in the thirty-second year of Artaxerxes, king of Babylon, I went to the king; and after some days, I got the king to let me go,
6 Mas, durante tudo isso, não estava eu em Jerusalém, porque, no ano trinta e dois de Artaxerxes, rei de Babilônia, vim eu ter com o rei; mas, ao cabo de alguns dias, tornei a alcançar licença do rei.
7 And I came to Jerusalem; and it was clear to me what evil Eliashib had done for Tobiah, in making ready for him a room in the buildings of the house of God.
7 E vim a Jerusalém e compreendi o mal que Eliasibe fizera para beneficiar a Tobias, fazendo-lhe uma câmara nos pátios da Casa de Deus,
8 And it was evil in my eyes: so I had all Tobiah’s things put out of the room.
8 o que muito me desagradou; de sorte que lancei todos os móveis da casa de Tobias fora da câmara.
9 Then I gave orders, and they made the rooms clean: and I put back in them the vessels of the house of God, with the meal offerings and the perfume.
9 E, ordenando-o eu, purificaram as câmaras; e tornei a trazer ali os utensílios da Casa de Deus, com as ofertas de manjares e o incenso.
10 And I saw that the Levites had not been given what was needed for their support; so that the Levites and the music-makers, who did the work, had gone away, everyone to his field.
10 Também entendi que o quinhão dos levitas se lhes não dava, de maneira que os levitas e os cantores, que faziam a obra, tinham fugido cada um para a sua terra.
11 Then I made protests to the chiefs, and said, Why has the house of God been given up? And I got them together and put them in their places.
11 Então, contendi com os magistrados e disse: Por que se desamparou a Casa de Deus? Porém eu os ajuntei e os restaurei no seu posto.
12 Then all Judah came with the tenth part of the grain and wine and oil and put it into the store-houses.
12 Então, todo o Judá trouxe os dízimos do grão, e do mosto, e do azeite aos celeiros.
13 And I made controllers over the store-houses, Shelemiah the priest and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah: and with them was Hanan, the son of Zaccur the son of Mattaniah: they were taken to be true men and their business was the distribution of these things to their brothers.
13 E por tesoureiros pus sobre os celeiros a Selemias, o sacerdote, e a Zadoque, o escrivão, e a Pedaías, dentre os levitas; e com eles Hanã, filho de Zacur, filho de Matanias; porque se tinham achado fiéis, e se lhes encarregou a eles a distribuição para seus irmãos.
14 Keep me in mind, O my God, in connection with this, and do not let the good which I have done for the house of my God and its worship go from your memory completely.
14 (Por isto, Deus meu, lembra-te de mim e não risques as beneficências que eu fiz à Casa de meu Deus e às suas guardas.)
15 In those days, I saw in Judah some who were crushing grapes on the Sabbath, and getting in grain and putting it on asses; as well as wine and grapes and figs and all sorts of goods which they took into Jerusalem on the Sabbath day: and I gave witness against them on the day when they were marketing food.
15 Naqueles dias, vi em Judá os que pisavam lagares ao sábado e traziam feixes que carregavam sobre os jumentos; como também vinho, uvas e figos e toda casta de cargas, que traziam a Jerusalém no dia de sábado; e protestei contra eles no dia em que vendiam mantimentos.
16 And there were men of Tyre there, who came with fish and all sorts of goods, trading with the children of Judah and in Jerusalem on the Sabbath.
16 Também tírios habitavam dentro e traziam peixe e toda mercadoria, que no sábado vendiam aos filhos de Judá e em Jerusalém.
17 Then I made protests to the chiefs of Judah, and said to them, What is this evil which you are doing, not keeping the Sabbath day holy?
17 E contendi com os nobres de Judá e lhes disse: Que mal é este que fazeis, profanando o dia de sábado?
18 Did not your fathers do the same, and did not our God send all this evil on us and on this town? but you are causing more wrath to come on Israel by not keeping the Sabbath holy.
18 Porventura, não fizeram vossos pais assim, e nosso Deus não trouxe todo este mal sobre nós e sobre esta cidade? E vós ainda mais acrescentais o ardor de sua ira sobre Israel, profanando o sábado.
19 And so, when the streets of Jerusalem were getting dark before the Sabbath, I gave orders for the doors to be shut and not to be open again till after the Sabbath: and I put some of my servants by the door so that nothing might be taken in on the Sabbath day.
19 Sucedeu, pois, que, dando as portas de Jerusalém já sombra antes do sábado, ordenando-o eu, as portas se fecharam; e mandei que não as abrissem até passado o sábado; e pus às portas alguns de meus moços, para que nenhuma carga entrasse no dia de sábado.
20 So the traders in all sorts of goods took their night’s rest outside Jerusalem once or twice.
20 Então, os negociantes e os vendedores de toda mercadoria passaram a noite fora de Jerusalém, uma ou duas vezes.
21 Then I gave witness against them and said, Why are you waiting all night by the wall? if you do so again I will have you taken prisoners. From that time they did not come again on the Sabbath.
21 Protestei, pois, contra eles e lhes disse: Por que passais a noite defronte do muro? Se outra vez o fizerdes, hei de lançar mão sobre vós. Daquele tempo em diante, não vieram no sábado.
22 And I gave the Levites orders to make themselves clean and come and keep the doors and make the Sabbath holy. Keep this in mind to my credit, O my God, and have mercy on me, for great is your mercy.
22 Também disse aos levitas que se purificassem e viessem guardar as portas, para santificar o sábado. (Nisso também, Deus meu, lembra-te de mim; e perdoa-me segundo a abundância da tua benignidade.)
23 And in those days I saw the Jews who were married to women of Ashdod and Ammon and Moab:
23 Vi também, naqueles dias, judeus que tinham casado com mulheres asdoditas, amonitas e moabitas.
24 And their children were talking half in the language of Ashdod; they had no knowledge of the Jews’ language, but made use of the language of the two peoples.
24 E seus filhos falavam meio asdodita e não podiam falar judaico, senão segundo a língua de cada povo.
25 And I took up the cause against them, cursing them and giving blows to some of them and pulling out their hair; and I made them take an oath by God, saying, You are not to give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons or for yourselves.
25 E contendi com eles, e os amaldiçoei, e espanquei alguns deles, e lhes arranquei os cabelos, e os fiz jurar por Deus, dizendo: Não dareis mais vossas filhas a seus filhos e não tomareis mais suas filhas, nem para vossos filhos nem para vós mesmos.
26 Was it not in these things that Solomon, king of Israel, did wrong? among a number of nations there was no king like him, and he was dear to his God, and God made him king over all Israel: but even he was made to do evil by strange women.
26 Porventura, não pecou nisso Salomão, rei de Israel, não havendo entre muitas nações rei semelhante a ele, e sendo amado de seu Deus, e pondo-o Deus rei sobre todo o Israel? E, contudo, as mulheres estranhas o fizeram pecar.
27 Are we then without protest to let you do all this great evil, sinning against our God by taking strange women for your wives?
27 E dar-vos-íamos nós ouvidos, para fazermos todo este grande mal, prevaricando contra o nosso Deus, casando com mulheres estranhas?
28 And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib, the chief priest, was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite: so I sent him away from me.
28 Também um dos filhos de Joiada, filho de Eliasibe, o sumo sacerdote, era genro de Sambalate, o horonita, pelo que o afugentei de mim.
29 Keep them in mind, O my God, because they have put shame on the priests’ name and on the agreement of the priests and the Levites.
29 Lembra-te deles, Deus meu, pois contaminaram o sacerdócio, como também o concerto do sacerdócio e dos levitas.
30 So I made them clean from all strange people, and had regular watches fixed for the priests and for the Levites, everyone in his work;
30 Assim, os alimpei de todos os estranhos e designei os cargos dos sacerdotes e dos levitas, cada um na sua obra,
31 And for the wood offering, at fixed times, and for the first fruits. Keep me in mind, O my God, for good.
31 como também para as ofertas da lenha em tempos determinados e para as primícias. Lembra-te de mim, Deus meu, para o bem.
