RF EZR 5:1 The Temple Again Begun.
Then the Preachers Haggai and Zakeriah-ben-Adna preached to the Jews who were in Jerusalem with the power of the God of Israel upon them.
RF EZR 5:2 Consequently Zerubabel-bar-Shalthial, and Jeshua-bar-Jozadak began again to rebuild the House of God at Jerusalem, and the Preachers of God helped them.
RF EZR 5:3 The Governor of Samaria Interferes.
Then Tatnai the Governor of the Over-river, and Shatharboznai, and their Associates sent and enquired of them, "Who gave a permission to rebuild this Temple and to close up this wall?"
RF EZR 5:4 They also continued to ask them, "What are the names of the men who are erecting this building?"
RF EZR 5:5 However the eye of God was upon the leaders of the Jews, and they did not prevent them until a dispatch could be sent to Dariush, and a reply received about it.
RF EZR 5:6 Copy of Tatnai's Letter.
A Copy of the letter, that Tatnai the Over-river Governor, and Shethar-boznai, and their associates, the Afaraskia, who were over the river, sent to the king Dariush.
RF EZR 5:7 (They sent a letter to him written in this form.)
RF EZR 5:8 "To Dariush the King;
Perfect health!—
"It should be known to the king that on our going to the Province of the Jews, to the Temple of the Great God, we found it rebuilt with great stones, with timber fixed in the walls, and the work is being pushed forward, and the works prosper in their hands.
RF EZR 5:9 We consequently asked the Leaders, 'Who gave you a Decree for this Temple?—to build it, and close in the walls?'
RF EZR 5:10 We also demanded the names of their leaders so as to inform you of the names of those men.
RF EZR 5:11 When they returned us this answer;—'We are the servants of the God of Heaven and Earth! and we are rebuilding the Temple that was formerly here many years ago, which a great king of Israel built and furnished.
RF EZR 5:12 But because our ancestors provoked the God of Heaven, he gave them to the hand of Nebukadnezzar, king of Babel, the Kasdia, and he overthrew that Temple, and transported the People to Babel.
RF EZR 5:13 But in the first year of Koresh king of Babel, King Koresh signed a Decree for this Temple to be rebuilt.
RF EZR 5:14 And also the gold and silver furniture of the Temple of God, which Nebukadnezzar transferred from the Temple of Jerusalem, and carried to the Temple of Babel, King Koresh transferred from the Temple of Babel, and delivered to Shashbazar who was appointed Governor there,
RF EZR 5:15 and said to him, 'Take this furniture, and carry it to the Temple of Jerusalem, and rebuild the House of God on its own foundations.
RF EZR 5:16 Shashbazar consequently came,—and laid the foundations of the House of God at Jerusalem,—and from that time until now it has been building and is not completed.'
RF EZR 5:17 "Consequently, therefore, if it pleases the king, let there be a search at the Royal Treasury at Babel, to ascertain if King Koresh did sign a Decree for the rebuilding of this House of God in Jerusalem? And let the king send us information about this affair."


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
