Ezra 9:8-10 Names of God Bible (NOG)
8 And now, for a brief moment, Yahweh our Elohim has been kind enough to leave us a few survivors from Babylon and to give us a secure hold on his holy place. Our Elohim has made our eyes light up and has given us new opportunities while we were slaves. 9 We are slaves, but our Elohim hasn’t abandoned us in our slavery.

He did this to give us an opportunity to rebuild our Elohim’s temple and restore its ruins and to give us a protective wall in Judah and Jerusalem.
10 “And now, our Elohim, what can we say after all this? We have abandoned your commandments!
