Daniel 9:4-19

4I prayed to the Lord my God and amade confession, saying, bO Lord, the cgreat and awesome God, who dkeeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, 5 ewe have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly fand rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules. 6 gWe have not listened to hyour servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to iour kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. 7To you, jO Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame, as at this day, to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to all Israel, kthose who are near and lthose who are far away, in mall the lands to which you have driven them, because of nthe treachery that they have committed against you. 8To us, O Lord, belongs open shame, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because owe have sinned against you. 9 pTo the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him 10 qand have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God by walking in his laws, which he set before us by rhis servants the prophets. 11 sAll Israel has transgressed your law and turned aside, trefusing to obey your voice. uAnd the curse and oath vthat are written in the Law of wMoses the servant of God have been poured out upon us, because xwe have sinned against him. 12He has confirmed his words, which he spoke against us and against your rulers who ruled us,
Or  our judges who judged us
by aabringing upon us a great calamity. abFor under the whole heaven there has not been done anything like what has been done against Jerusalem.
13 acAs it is written in the Law of Moses, all this calamity has come upon us; yet we have not entreated the favor of the Lord our God, adturning from our iniquities and gaining insight by your truth. 14 aeTherefore the Lord has kept ready the calamity and has brought it upon us, affor the Lord our God is righteous in all the works that he has done, and agwe have not obeyed his voice. 15And now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of the land of Egypt ahwith a mighty hand, and aihave made a name for yourself, as at this day, ajwe have sinned, we have done wickedly.

16“O Lord, akaccording to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, alyour holy hill, ambecause for our sins, and for anthe iniquities of our fathers, aoJerusalem and your people have become apa byword among all who are around us. 17Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord,
Hebrew  for the Lord’s sake
armake your face to shine upon asyour sanctuary, which is desolate.
18 atO my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see auour desolations, and avthe city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. awDelay not, axfor your own sake, O my God, because ayyour city and azyour people are called by your name.”
