Nexemyaah 1 Somali Bible (SOM)
1 Kanu waa hadalkii Nexemyaah oo ahaa ina Xakalyaah. Hadda intaan joogay Shuushan oo ah hoygii boqorka, sannaddii labaatanaad bisheedii Kislee'u, 2 waxaa yimid Xanaanii oo walaalahayga midkood ahaa, isaga iyo niman kale oo dalka Yahuudah ka yimid; oo markaasaan weyddiiyey wax ku saabsan Yuhuuddii baxsatay, oo maxaabiistii ka hadhay, iyo wax ku saabsan Yeruusaalem. 3 Oo iyana waxay igu yidhaahdeen, Kuwii maxaabiista ka hadhay oo gobolkii jira waxay ku jiraan dhibaato weyn iyo ceeb; oo derbigii Yeruusaalemna waa la dumiyey, oo irdaheediina dab baa lagu gubay. 4 Oo markaan erayadaas maqlay ayaan meel fadhiistay oo ooyay, oo intii ayaamo ah ayaan baroortay; waanan soomay, oo waxaan ku tukaday Ilaaha samada hortiisa, 5 oo idhi, Rabbiyow, Ilaaha samadow, Ilaaha weyn oo laga cabsadow, oo axdiga xajiya, oo u naxariista kuwa isaga jecel oo amarradiisa xajiyow, waan ku baryayaaye, 6 Dhegahaagu ha maqleen, indhahaagana fur, inaad maqashid baryadayda anoo addoonkaaga ah. Wakhtigan habeen iyo maalinba waxaan kuu baryayaa reer binu Israa'iil oo addoommadaada ah, anigoo qiraya dembiyadii aan aniga iyo reer binu Israa'iil kugu dembaabnay; haah, aniga iyo reerka aabbahayba waannu dembaabnay. 7 Oo si aad u xun ayaannu kula macaamiloonnay, oo ma aannan xajin amarradii, iyo qaynuunnadii, iyo xukummadii aad ku amartay addoonkaagii Muuse ahaa. 8 Waan ku baryayaaye, bal xusuuso eraygii aad ku amartay addoonkaagii Muuse ahaa, oo aad ku tidhi, Haddaad xadgudubtaan, waxaan idinku kala dhex firdhin doonaa dadyowga, 9 laakiinse haddaad ii soo noqotaan oo aad amarradayda xajisaan oo aad yeeshaan, in kastoo kuwiinna la tuuray ay joogaan meesha samada ugu fog, halkaasaan ka soo ururin doonaa, oo waxaan keeni doonaa meeshii aan u doortay inaan ka dhigo in magacaygu joogo. 10 Haddaba kuwanu waa addoommadaada iyo dadkaaga aad ku soo furtay xooggaagii iyo gacantaadii xoogga badnayd. 11 Sayidow, waan ku baryayaaye, hadda dhegahaagu ha maqleen baryadayda anoo addoonkaaga ah, iyo baryada addoommadaada ku farxa inay ka cabsadaan magacaaga; waan ku baryayaaye, maanta i guulee, anoo addoonkaaga ah, oo ka dhig inaan ninkan hortiisa naxariis ka helo. (Anigu waxaan ahaa koobsidaha boqorka.)
Nehemiah 1 New International Version (NIV)
1 The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah:
In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, 2 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.
3 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.”
4 When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. 5 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, 6 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. 7 We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.
8 “Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, 9 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.
