13 (A)“As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us; (B)yet we have not made our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and understand Your truth. 14 Therefore the Lord has (C)kept the disaster in mind, and brought it upon us; for (D)the Lord our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice. 15 And now, O Lord our God, (E)who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself (F)a name, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have done wickedly!

16 “O Lord, (G)according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Jerusalem, (H)Your holy mountain; because for our sins, (I)and for the iniquities of our fathers, (J)Jerusalem and Your people (K)are a reproach to all those around us. 17 Now therefore, our God, hear the prayer of Your servant, and his supplications, (L)and (M)for the Lord’s sake [a]cause Your face to shine on [b]Your sanctuary, (N)which is desolate. 18 (O)O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes (P)and see our desolations, and the city (Q)which is called by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. 19 O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.”
