C. 4:7-23 … And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it …

D. 5:1-19 … And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer. 9 Also I said, It is not good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies? …

C’. 6:1-9 … But they thought to do me mischief.

B’. 6:10-14 … And, lo, I perceived that God had not sent him; but that he pronounced this prophecy against me: for Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him …
