Nehemeia 1Beibl William Morgan (BWM)

Geiriau Nehemeia mab Hachaleia. A bu ym mis Cisleu, yn yr ugeinfed flwyddyn, pan oeddwn i ym mrenhinllys Susan, Ddyfod o Hanani, un o’m brodyr, efe a gwŷr o Jwda; a gofynnais iddynt am yr Iddewon a ddianghasai, y rhai a adawsid o’r caethiwed, ac am Jerwsalem. A hwy a ddywedasant wrthyf, Y gweddillion, y rhai a adawyd o’r gaethglud yno yn y dalaith ydynt mewn blinder mawr a gwaradwydd: mur Jerwsalem hefyd a ddrylliwyd, a’i phyrth a losgwyd â thân.

A phan glywais y geiriau hyn, myfi a eisteddais ac a wylais, ac a alerais dalm o ddyddiau; a bûm yn ymprydio, ac yn gweddïo gerbron Duw y nefoedd; A dywedais, Atolwg, Arglwydd Dduw y nefoedd, y Duw mawr ac ofnadwy, yr hwn sydd yn cadw cyfamod a thrugaredd i’r rhai a’i carant ef ac a gadwant ei orchmynion: Bydded, atolwg, dy glust yn clywed, a’th lygaid yn agored, i wrando ar weddi dy was, yr hon yr ydwyf fi yn ei gweddïo ger dy fron di yr awr hon ddydd a nos, dros feibion Israel dy weision, ac yn cyffesu pechodau meibion Israel, y rhai a bechasom i’th erbyn: myfi hefyd a thŷ fy nhad a bechasom. Gwnaethom yn llygredig iawn i’th erbyn, ac ni chadwasom y gorchmynion, na’r deddfau, na’r barnedigaethau, a orchmynnaist i Moses dy was. Cofia, atolwg, y gair a orchmynnaist wrth Moses dy was, gan ddywedyd, Os chwi a droseddwch, myfi a’ch gwasgaraf chwi ymysg y bobloedd: Ond os dychwelwch ataf fi, a chadw fy ngorchmynion, a’u gwneuthur hwynt; pe gyrrid rhai ohonoch chwi hyd eithaf y nefoedd, eto mi a’u casglaf hwynt oddi yno, ac a’u dygaf i’r lle a etholais i drigo o’m henw ynddo. 10 A hwy ydynt dy weision a’th bobl, y rhai a waredaist â’th fawr allu, ac â’th law nerthol. 11 Atolwg, Arglwydd, bydded yn awr dy glust yn gwrando ar weddi dy was, ac ar weddi dy weision y rhai sydd yn ewyllysio ofni dy enw: llwydda hefyd, atolwg, dy was heddiw, a chaniatâ iddo gael trugaredd gerbron y gŵr hwn. Canys myfi oedd drulliad i’r brenin.

Nehemiah 1New International Version (NIV)

Nehemiah’s Prayer

The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah:

In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem.

They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.

When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Then I said:

Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.

“Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.’

10 “They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. 11 Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.”

I was cupbearer to the king.
