Book 15 Ezra 001:001 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of Yahweh by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, Yahweh stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and [put it] also in writing, saying, 001:002 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth has Yahweh, the God of heaven, given me; and he has charged me to build him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. 001:003 Whoever there is among you of all his people, his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of Yahweh, the God of Israel (he is God), which is in Jerusalem. 001:004 Whoever is left, in any place where he sojourns, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with animals, besides the freewill offering for the house of God which is in Jerusalem. 001:005 Then rose up the heads of fathers' [houses] of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites, even all whose spirit God had stirred to go up to build the house of Yahweh which is in Jerusalem. 001:006 All those who were round about them strengthened their hands with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, and with animals, and with precious things, besides all that was willingly offered. 001:007 Also Cyrus the king brought forth the vessels of the house of Yahweh, which Nebuchadnezzar had brought forth out of Jerusalem, and had put in the house of his gods; 001:008 even those did Cyrus king of Persia bring forth by the hand of Mithredath the treasurer, and numbered them to Sheshbazzar, the prince of Judah. 001:009 This is the number of them: thirty platters of gold, one thousand platters of silver, twenty nine knives, 001:010 thirty bowls of gold, silver bowls of a second sort four hundred and ten, and other vessels one thousand. 001:011 All the vessels of gold and of silver were five thousand and four hundred. All these did Sheshbazzar bring up, when they of the captivity were brought up from Babylon to Jerusalem. 002:001 Now these are the children of the province, who went up out of the captivity of those who had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away to Babylon, and who returned to Jerusalem and Judah, everyone to his city; 002:002 who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Seraiah, Reelaiah, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispar, Bigvai, Rehum, Baanah. The number of the men of the people of Israel: 002:003 The children of Parosh, two thousand one hundred seventy two. 002:004 The children of Shephatiah, three hundred seventy two. 002:005 The children of Arah, seven hundred seventy five. 002:006 The children of Pahathmoab, of the children of Jeshua [and] Joab, two thousand eight hundred twelve. 002:007 The children of Elam, one thousand two hundred fifty four. 002:008 The children of Zattu, nine hundred forty five. 002:009 The children of Zaccai, seven hundred sixty. 002:010 The children of Bani, six hundred forty two. 002:011 The children of Bebai, six hundred twenty three. 002:012 The children of Azgad, one thousand two hundred twenty two. 002:013 The children of Adonikam, six hundred sixty six. 002:014 The children of Bigvai, two thousand fifty six. 002:015 The children of Adin, four hundred fifty four. 002:016 The children of Ater, of Hezekiah, ninety eight. 002:017 The children of Bezai, three hundred twenty three. 002:018 The children of Jorah, one hundred twelve. 002:019 The children of Hashum, two hundred Twenty three. 002:020 The children of Gibbar, ninety five. 002:021 The children of Bethlehem, one hundred twenty three...
