Intermarriage with Neighboring Peoples

1Καὶ ὡς ἐτελέσθη ταῦτα, ἤγγισαν πρὸς μὲ οἱ ἄρχοντες λέγοντες Οὐκ ἐχωρίσθη ὁ λαὸς Ἰσραὴλ καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευεῖται ἀπὸ λαῶν τῶν γαιῶν ἐν μακρύμμασιν αὐτῶν· τῷ Χανανεί, ὁ Ἑθεί, ὁ Φερεσθεί, ὁ Ἰεβουσεί, ὁ Ἀμμωνεί, ὁ Μωάβ, ὁ Μοσερεὶ καὶ ὁ Ἀμορεί· 2ὅτι ἐλάβοσαν ἀπὸ θυγατέρων αὐτῶν αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτῶν, καὶ παρήχθη σπέρμα τὸ ἅγιον ἐν λαοῖς τῶν γαιῶν, καὶ χεὶρ τῶν ἀρχόντων ἐν τῇ ἀσυνθεσίᾳ ταύτῃ. 3καὶ ὡς ἤκουσα τὸν λόγον τοῦτον, διέρρηξα τὰ ἱμάτιά μου καὶ ἐπαλλόμην, καὶ ἔτιλλον ἀπὸ τῶν τριχῶν τῆς κεφαλῆς μου καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ πώγωνός μου, καὶ ἐκαθήμην ἠρεμάζων. 4καὶ συνήχθησαν πρὸς μὲ πᾶς ὁ διώκων λόγον θεοῦ Ἰσραὴλ ἐπὶ ἀσυνθεσίᾳ τῆς ἀποικίας· καὶ ἐγὼ καθήμενος ἠρεμάζων ἕως τῆς θυσίας τῆς ἑσπερινῆς.

Ezra's Prayer of Confession

5καὶ ἐν θυσίᾳ τῇ ἑσπερινῇ ἀνέστην ἀπὸ ταπεινώσεώς μου· καὶ ἐν τῷ διαρρῆξαί με τὰ ἱμάτιά μου καὶ ἐπαλλόμην, καὶ κλίνω ἐπὶ τὰ γόνατά μου καὶ ἐκπετάζω χεῖράς μου πρὸς τὸν θεόν, 6καὶ εἶπα, ᾘσχύνθην καὶ ἐνετράπην τοῦ ὑψῶσαι τὸ πρόσωπόν μου πρὸς σέ, ὅτι αἱ ἀνομίαι ἡμῶν ἐπληθύνθησαν ὑπὲρ κεφαλῆς ἡμῶν, καὶ αἱ πλημμέλειαι ἡμῶν ἐμεγαλύνθησαν ἕως εἰς οὐρανόν. 7ἀπὸ ἡμερῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν ἐσμεν ἐν πλημμελείᾳ μεγάλῃ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης· καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἀνομίαις ἡμῶν παρεδόθημεν ἡμεῖς καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς ἡμῶν καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ἡμῶν ἐν χειρὶ βασιλέων τῶν ἐθνῶν, ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ, ἐν διαρπαγῇ καὶ ἐν αἰσχύνῃ προσώπου ἡμῶν, ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη. 8καὶ νῦν ἐπεσκευάσατο ἡμῖν ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν τοῦ καταλιπεῖν ἡμῖν εἰς σωτηρίαν καὶ δοῦναι ἡμῖν στήρισμα ἐν τόπῳ ἁγιάσματος αὐτοῦ, τοῦ φωτίσαι ὀφθαλμοὺς ἡμῶν καὶ δοῦναι ζωοποίησιν μικρὰν ἐν τῇ δουλείᾳ ἡμῶν. 9ὅτι δοῦλοί ἐσμεν, καὶ ἐν τῇ δουλείᾳ ἡμῶν οὐκ ἐνκατέλειπεν ἡμᾶς Κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν, καὶ ἔκλινεν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς ἔλεος ἐνώπιον βασιλέων Περσῶν, δοῦναι ἡμῖν ζωοποίησιν, τοῦ ὑψῶσαι αὐτοὺς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν καὶ ἀναστῆσαι τὰ ἔρημα αὐτῆς, καὶ τοῦ δοῦναι ἡμῖν φραγμὸν ἐν Ἰούδᾳ καὶ ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ.

10τί εἴπωμεν, ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν, μετὰ τοῦτο; ὅτι ἐνκατελίπομεν ἐντολάς σου 11ἃς ἔδωκας ἡμῖν ἐν χειρὶ δούλων σου τῶν προφητῶν Ἡ γῆ εἰς ἣν εἰσπορεύεσθε κληρονομῆσαι αὐτὴν γῆ μετακινουμένη ἐστὶν ἐν μετακινήσει λαῶν τῶν ἐθνῶν, ἐν μακρύμμασιν αὐτῶν, ὧν ἔπλησαν αὐτὴν ἀπὸ στόματος ἐπὶ στόμα ἐν ἀκαθαρσίαις αὐτῶν. 12καὶ νῦν τὰς θυγατέρας ὑμῶν μὴ δῶτε τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀπὸ θυγατέρων αὐτῶν μὴ λάβητε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν, καὶ οὐκ ἐκζητήσετε εἰρήνην αὐτῶν καὶ ἀγαθὸν αὐτῶν ἕως αἰῶνος, ὅπως ἐνισχύσητε καὶ φάγητε τὰ ἀγαθὰ τῆς γῆς καὶ κληροδοτήσητε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν ἕως αἰῶνος. 13καὶ μετὰ πᾶν τὸ ἐρχόμενον ἐφ᾽ ὑμᾶς ἐν ποιήμασιν ὑμῶν τοῖς πονηροῖς καὶ ἐν πλημμελείᾳ ὑμῶν τῇ μεγάλῃ· ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ὡς ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν, ὅτι ἐκούφισας ἡμῶν τὰς ἀνομίας καὶ ἔδωκας ἡμῖν σωτηρίαν· 14ὅτι ἐπεστρέψαμεν διασκεδάσαι ἐντολάς σου καὶ γαμβρεῦσαι τοῖς λαοῖς· μὴ παροξυνθῇς ἐν ἡμῖν ἕως συντελείας τοῦ μὴ εἶναι ἐνκατάλειμμα καὶ διασωζόμενον. 15Κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ἰσραήλ, δίκαιος σύ, ὅτι κατελείφθημεν διασωζόμενοι ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη· ἐναντίον σου ἐν πλημμελείαις ἡμῶν, ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν στῆναι ἐνώπιόν σου ἐπὶ τούτῳ·
