1:1

Cyrus's order to rebuild the Temple


1:1 Now in the first year of Cyrus King of the Persians, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremias might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus King of the Persians, and he issued a proclamation through all his kingdom, and that in writing, saying,

1:2 "Thus said Cyrus King of the Persians, The Lord God of Heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he hath given me a charge to build him a House in Jerusalem that is in Judea.

1:3 Who is there among you of all His people? For his God shall be with him, and he shall go up to Jerusalem that is in Judea, and let him build the House of the God of Israel: he is the God that is in Jerusalem.

1:4 And let every Jew that is left go from every place where he sojourns, and the men of his place shall help him with silver, and gold, and goods, and cattle, together with the voluntary offering for the House of God that is in Jerusalem."

1:5 Then the chiefs of the families of Judah and Benjamin arose, and the priests, and the Levites, all whose spirit the Lord stirred up to go up to build the House of the Lord that is in Jerusalem.

1:6 And all that were round about strengthened their hands with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, and with cattle, and with presents, besides the voluntary offerings.

1:7 And King Cyrus brought out the vessels of the House of the Lord, which Nabuchodonosor had brought from Jerusalem, and put in the house of his god.

1:8 And Cyrus King of the Persians brought them out by the hand of Mithradates the treasurer, and he numbered them to Sasabasar, the chief man of Judah.

1:9 And this is their number: thirty gold basons, and a thousand silver basons, nine and twenty changes, thirty golden goblets,

1:10 and four hundred and ten double silver vessels, and a thousand other vessels.
