Ezr1: Cyrus said, "Let the LORD's people go up to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple." He gave the articles from the temple to Sheshbazzar.
Ezr2: The exiles returned to Judah with Zerubbabel. A total of 42,360 people returned. The heads of families gave offerings for the temple.
Ezr3: The Israelites made regular offerings. When the builders laid the foundation of the temple, the Levites sang praise to the LORD.
Ezr4: Enemies hindered the work in Judah. Rehum wrote to Artaxerxes: "Jerusalem is a rebellious city." So Artaxerxes stopped the building.
Ezr5: Zerubbabel began to build the temple. Tattenai wrote to Darius: "The elders say that Cyrus issued a decree to rebuild this temple."
Ezr6: Darius issued a decree: "The cost of the temple shall come from the treasury." The temple was completed and the Israelites celebrated.
Ezr7: Ezra went up to Jerusalem to teach the law. Artaxerxes wrote: "I decree that whatever Ezra needs shall be done." So I was encouraged.
Ezr8: I assembled the family heads from Babylon and gave the gifts for the temple to the Levites. We came to Jerusalem and made offerings.
Ezr9: The leaders told me that the people had taken foreign wives. I tore my robe and prayed, "O God, we have forsaken your commandments."
Ezr10: The Israelites wept. They all assembled and Ezra said, "Separate from your foreign wives." The family heads investigated the matter.
