Nehemiah 9:27-29 Living Bible (TLB)

27 So you gave them to their enemies. But in their time of trouble they cried to you, and you heard them from heaven, and in great mercy you sent them saviors who delivered them from their enemies. 28 But when all was going well, your people turned to sin again, and once more you let their enemies conquer them. Yet whenever your people returned to you and cried to you for help, once more you listened from heaven, and in your wonderful mercy delivered them! 29 You punished them in order to turn them toward your laws; but even though they should have obeyed them,[a] they were proud and wouldn’t listen, and continued to sin.


  1. Nehemiah 9:29 even though they should have obeyed them, literally, “by the observance of which a man shall live.”
