The Work is Ridiculed

1Καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἤκουσεν Ἀναβαλλὰτ ὅτι ἡμεῖς οἰκοδομοῦμεν τὸ τεῖχος, καὶ πονηρὸν αὐτῷ ἐφάνη, καὶ ὠργίσθη ἐπὶ πολύ, καὶ ἐξεγέλα ἐπὶ τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις. 2καὶ εἶπεν ἐνώπιον τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ Αὕτη ἡ δύναμις Σομορών, ὅτι οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι οὗτοι οἰκοδομοῦσιν τὴν ἑαυτῶν πόλιν; 3καὶ Τωβίας ὁ Ἀμμανείτης ἐχόμενα αὐτοῦ ἦλθεν· καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς ἑαυτούς Μὴ θυσιάσουσιν ἢ φάγονται ἐπὶ τοῦ τόπου αὐτῶν; οὐχὶ ἀναβήσεται ἀλώπηξ καὶ καθελεῖ τὸ τεῖχος λίθων αὐτῶν;

4ἄκουσον ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν, ὅτι ἐγενήθημεν εἰς μυκτηρισμόν, 5καὶ ἐπίστρεψον ὀνειδισμὸν αὐτῶν εἰς κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν, καὶ δὸς αὐτοὺς εἰς μυκτηρισμὸν ἐν γῇ αἰχμαλωσίας,

6καὶ μὴ καλύψῃς ἐπὶ ἀνομίαν.

7Καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν Σαναβαλλὰτ καὶ Τωβιὰ καὶ οἱ Ἄραβες καὶ οἱ Ἀμμανεῖται ὅτι ἀνέβη ἡ φυὴ τοῖς τείχεσιν Ἰερουσαλήμ, ὅτι ἤρξαντο αἱ διασφαγαὶ ἀναφράσσεσθαι, καὶ πονηρὸν αὐτοῖς ἐφάνη σφόδρα. 8καὶ συνήχθησαν πάντες ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἐλθεῖν παρατάξασθαι ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ.

Discouragement Overcome

9καὶ προσηυξάμεθα πρὸς τὸν θεὸν ἡμῶν, καὶ ἐστήσαμεν προφύλακας ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτὸς ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν.

10καὶ εἶπεν Ἰούδας Συνετρίβη ἡ ἰσχὺς τῶν ἐχθρῶν, καὶ ὄχλος πολύς, καὶ ἡμεῖς οὐ δυνησόμεθα οἰκοδομεῖν ἐν τῷ τείχει.

11καὶ εἶπαν οἱ θλίβοντες ἡμᾶς Οὐ γνώσονται καὶ οὐκ ὄψονται ἕως ὅτου ἔλθωμεν εἰς μέσον αὐτῶν καὶ φονεύσωμεν αὐτοὺς καὶ καταπαύσωμεν τὸ ἔργον. 12καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤλθοσαν οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι οἱ οἰκοῦντες ἐχόμενα αὐτῶν, καὶ εἴποσαν ἡμῖν Ἀναβαίνουσιν ἐκ πάντων τῶν τόπων ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς· 13καὶ ἔστησα εἰς τὰ κατώτατα τοῦ τόπου κατόπισθεν τοῦ τείχους ἐν τοῖς σκεπεινοῖς, καὶ ἔστησα τὸν λαὸν κατὰ δήμους μετὰ ῥομφαιῶν αὐτῶν, λόγχας αὐτῶν καὶ τόξα αὐτῶν. 14καὶ εἶδον, καὶ ἀνέστην καὶ εἶπα πρὸς τοὺς ἐντίμους καὶ πρὸς τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ λαοῦ Μὴ φοβηθῆτε ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν· μνήσθητε τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν τοῦ μεγάλου καὶ φοβεροῦ, καὶ παρατάξασθε περὶ τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν, υἱῶν ὑμῶν, θυγατέρων ὑμῶν, γυναικῶν ὑμῶν καὶ οἴκων ὑμῶν.

15καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἤκουσαν οἱ ἐχθροὶ ἡμῶν ὅτι ἐγνώσθη ἡμῖν, καὶ διεσκέδασεν ὁ θεὸς τὴν βουλὴν αὐτῶν· καὶ ἐπεστρέψαμεν πάντες ἡμεῖς εἰς τὸ τεῖχος, ἀνὴρ εἰς τὸ ἔργον αὐτοῦ. 16καὶ ἐγένετο ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης ἥμισυ τῶν ἐκτετιναγμένων ἐποίουν τὸ ἔργον, καὶ ἥμισυ αὐτῶν ἀντείχοντο, καὶ λόγχαι καὶ θυρεοὶ καὶ τὰ τόξα καὶ οἱ θώρακες καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες ὀπίσω παντὸς οἴκου Ἰούδα 17τῶν οἰκοδομούντων ἐν τῷ τείχει. καὶ οἱ αἴροντες ἐν τοῖς ἀρτῆρσιν ἐν ὅπλοις· ἐν μιᾷ χειρὶ ἐποίει αὐτὸ τὸ ἔργον, καὶ μιᾷ ἐκράτει τὴν βολίδα. 18καὶ οἰκοδόμοι, ἀνὴρ ῥομφαίαν αὐτοῦ ἐζωσμένος ἐπὶ ὀσφὺν αὐτοῦ, καὶ οἰκοδομοῦσαν· καὶ ὁ σαλπίζων ἐν τῇ κερατίνῃ ἐχόμενα αὐτοῦ. 19καὶ εἶπα πρὸς τοὺς ἐντίμους καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἄρχοντας καὶ πρὸς τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ λαοῦ Τὸ ἔργον πλατὺ καὶ πολύ, καὶ ἡμεῖς σκορπιζόμεθα ἐπὶ τοῦ τείχους μακρὰν ἀνὴρ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ. 20ἐν τόπῳ οὗ ἐὰν ἀκούσητε τὴν φωνὴν τῆς κερατίνης, ἐκεῖ συναχθήσεσθε πρὸς ἡμᾶς, καὶ ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν πολεμήσει περὶ ἡμῶν.

21καὶ ἡμεῖς ποιοῦντες τὸ ἔργον, καὶ ἥμισυ αὐτῶν κρατοῦντες τὰς λόγχας ἀπὸ ἀναβάσεως ἕως τοῦ ὄρθρου, ἕως ἐξόδου τῶν ἄστρων. 22καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ εἶπα τῷ λαῷ Αὐλίσθητε ἐν μέσῳ Ἰερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἔστω ὑμῖν ἡ νὺξ προφυλακή, καὶ ἡ ἡμέρα ἔργον. 23καὶ ἤμην ἐγὼ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς προφυλακῆς ὀπίσω μου, καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἐξ ἡμῶν ἐκδιδυσκόμενος ἀνὴρ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ.
