Nehemiah 5:4-6 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king’s [a]tribute upon our lands and our vineyards.

And now our flesh is as [b]the flesh of our brethren, and our sons as their sons: and lo, we bring into subjection our sons and our daughters, as servants, and there be of our daughters now in subjection, and there is no power [c]in our hands: for other men have our lands and our vineyards.

Then was I very angry when I heard their cry and these words.


  1. Nehemiah 5:4 To pay our tribute to the king of the Persians, which was exacted yearly of us.
  2. Nehemiah 5:5 By nature the rich is no better than the poor.
  3. Nehemiah 5:5 We are not able to redeem them, but for poverty are constrained to hire them to others.
