    King James Bible - Nehemiah 2:2

    Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid,

    World English Bible

    The king said to me, "Why is your face sad, since you are not sick? This is nothing else but sorrow of
    heart." Then I was very much afraid.

    Douay-Rheims - Nehemiah 2:2

    And the king said to me: Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou dost not appear to be sick? this is not without cause, but some evil, I know not what, is in thy
    heart. And I was seized with an exceeding great fear:

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Wherefore the king said to me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou
    art not sick? this is nothing but sorrow of heart. Then I was very greatly afraid,

    Ge 40:7

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    me dijo el rey: ¿Por qué está triste tu rostro, pues no estás enfermo? No es esto sino quebranto de corazón. Entonces temí en gran manera.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 2:2

    Verse 2. Then I was very sore afraid.] Probably the king spoke as if he had some suspicion that Nehemiah harboured some bad
    design, and that his face indicated some conceived treachery or remorse.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. Wherefore the king said unto me, why is thy
    countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick ? etc.] He had no disorder upon him to change his countenance and make him sorrowful, and therefore asks what should be the reason of it: this is nothing else but sorrow of heart; this is not owing to any bodily disease or pain, but some inward trouble of mind; or “wickedness of heart” f15 , some ill design in his mind, which being conscious of, and thoughtful about, was discovered in his countenance; he suspected, as Jarchi intimates, a design to kill him, by putting poison into his cup: then I was very sore afraid ; lest the king should have suspicion of an ill design on him; or lest, since he must be obliged to give the true reason, he should not succeed in his request, it being so large, and perhaps many about the king were no friends to the Jews.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - Our prayers must be seconded with serious endeavours, else we
    mock God We are not limited to certain moments in our addresses to the King of kings, but have liberty to go to him at all times; approaches to the throne of grace are never out of season. But the sense of God' displeasure and the afflictions of his people, are causes of sorrow to the children of God, under which no earthly delights can comfort. The king encouraged Nehemiah to tell his mind. This gave him boldness to speak; much more may the invitation Christ has given us to pray, an the promise that we shall speed, encourage us to come boldly to the throne of grace. Nehemiah prayed to the God of heaven, as infinitel above even this mighty monarch. He lifted up his heart to that God wh understands the language of the heart. Nor should we ever engage in an pursuit in which it would be wrong for us thus to seek and expect the Divine direction, assistance, and blessing. There was an immediat answer to his prayer; for the seed of Jacob never sought the God of Jacob in vain.
