Nehemiah chapter 5

Nehemiah 5:13
D  .... jah qaþ alla gamainþs: amen. jah hazidedun fraujan jah gatawidedun þata waurd alla so managei.
— Also I shook my lap, and said, So God shake out every man from his house, and from his labour, that performeth not this promise, even thus be he shaken out, and emptied. And all the congregation said, Amen, and praised the LORD. And the people did according to this promise.
Nehemiah 5:14
D  jah fram þamma daga ei anabauþ mis ei weisjau fauramaþleis ize in Iudaia, fram jera ·k· und jer ·l· jah anþar Arta[r]ksairksaus þiudanis ·ib· jera, ik jah broþrjus meinai hlaif fauramaþleis meinis ni matidedum.
— Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year even unto the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that is, twelve years, I and my brethren have not eaten the bread of the governor.
Nehemiah 5:15
D   fauramaþljos þaiei weisun faura mis kauridedun þo managein jah nemun at im hlaibans jah wein jah nauhþanuh silubris sikle ·m·, jah skalkos ize fraujinodedun þizai managein; ik ni tawida swa faura andwairþja agisis gudis.
— But the former governors that had been before me were chargeable unto the people, and had taken of them bread and wine, beside forty shekels of silver; yea, even their servants bare rule over the people: but so did not I, because of the fear of God.
Nehemiah 5:16
D  jah waurstw þizos baurgswaddjaus inswinþida, jah þaurp ni gastaistald, jah þiwos meinai jah allai þai galisanans du þamma waurstwa.
— Yea, also I continued in the work of this wall, neither bought we any land: and all my servants were gathered thither unto the work.
Nehemiah 5:17
D  jah Iudaieis jah þai fauramaþljos ·r· jah ·n· gumane jah þai qimandans at unsis us þiudom þaim bisunjane unsis ana biuda meinamma andnumanai weisun.
— Moreover there were at my table an hundred and fifty of the Jews and rulers, beside those that came unto us from among the heathen that are about us.
Nehemiah 5:18
D  jah was fraquman dagis hvizuh stiur ·a· lamba gawalida ·q· jah gaits [·a·] gamanwida was mis; jah bi ·i· dagans gaf wein allai þizai filusnai jah allai þizai managein; jah ana þo alla hlaif fauramaþleis meinis ni sokida, in þis ei ni kauridedjau þo managein in þaim waurstwam ....
— Now that which was prepared for me daily was one ox and six choice sheep; also fowls were prepared for me, and once in ten days store of all sorts of wine: yet for all this required not I the bread of the governor, because the bondage was heavy upon this people.
