Nehemiah 9:24-26 New English Translation (NET Bible)

24 Their descendants[a] entered and possessed the land. You subdued before them the Canaanites who were the inhabitants of the land. You delivered them into their hand, together with their kings and the peoples of the land, to deal with as they pleased. 25 They captured fortified cities and fertile land. They took possession of houses full of all sorts of good things—wells previously dug, vineyards, olive trees, and fruit trees in abundance. They ate until they were full[b] and grew fat. They enjoyed to the full your great goodness.

26 “Nonetheless they grew disobedient and rebelled against you; they disregarded your law.[c] They killed your prophets who had solemnly admonished them in order to cause them to return to you. They committed atrocious blasphemies.

Footnotes:

  1. Nehemiah 9:24 tn Heb “the sons.”
  2. Nehemiah 9:25 tn Heb “they ate and were sated.” This expression is a hendiadys. The first verb retains its full verbal sense, while the second functions adverbially: “they ate and were filled” = “they ate until they were full.”
  3. Nehemiah 9:26 tn Heb “they cast your law behind their backs.”
