Since the days of our fathers to this day our guilt has been great; and because of our iniquities we, our kings, and our priests have been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, to plunder, and to shame of face, as it is this day. Bible see other translations

“shame of face.” That is, open shame; shame everyone can see.

Commentary for: Ezra 9:7
