1 H259 Now in the first H8141 year H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H1697 that the word H3068 of the LORD H6310 by the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah H3615 might be fulfilled, H3068 the LORD H5782 stirred H7307 up the spirit H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H5674 that he made a proclamation H6963 H3605 throughout all H4438 his kingdom, H1571 and put it also H4385 in writing, H559 saying,
  2 H3541 Thus H559 said H3566 Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H3068 The LORD H430 God H8064 of heaven H5414 has given H3605 me all H4467 the kingdoms H776 of the earth; H6485 and he has charged H1129 me to build H1004 him an house H3389 at Jerusalem, H834 which H3063 is in Judah.
  3 H4310 Who H3605 is there among you of all H5971 his people? H430 his God H5927 be with him, and let him go H3389 up to Jerusalem, H834 which H3063 is in Judah, H1129 and build H1004 the house H3068 of the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel, H430 (he is the God, H834 ) which H3389 is in Jerusalem.
  4 H3605 And whoever H7604 remains H3605 in any H4725 place H834 where H8033 H1481 he sojournes, H582 let the men H4725 of his place H5375 help H3701 him with silver, H2091 and with gold, H7399 and with goods, H929 and with beasts, H5973 beside H5071 the freewill H1004 offering for the house H430 of God H3389 that is in Jerusalem.
  5 H6965 Then rose H7218 up the chief H1 of the fathers H3063 of Judah H1144 and Benjamin, H3548 and the priests, H3881 and the Levites, H3605 with all H853 them whose H7307 spirit H430 God H5782 had raised, H5927 to go H1129 up to build H1004 the house H3068 of the LORD H834 which H3389 is in Jerusalem.
  6 H3605 And all H5439 they that were about H2388 them strengthened H3027 their hands H3627 with vessels H3701 of silver, H2091 with gold, H7399 with goods, H929 and with beasts, H4030 and with precious H905 things, beside H5921 H3605 all H5068 that was willingly offered.
  7 H3566 Also Cyrus H4428 the king H3318 brought H3318 forth H3627 the vessels H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD, H834 which H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H3318 had brought H3318 forth H3389 out of Jerusalem, H5414 and had put H1004 them in the house H430 of his gods;
  8 H3566 Even those did Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia H3318 bring H3318 forth H3027 by the hand H4990 of Mithredath H1489 the treasurer, H5608 and numbered H8339 them to Sheshbazzar, H5387 the prince H3063 of Judah.
  9 H428 And this H4557 is the number H7970 of them: thirty H105 chargers H2091 of gold, H505 a thousand H105 chargers H3701 of silver, H8672 nine H6242 and twenty H4252 knives,
  10 H7970 Thirty H3713 basins H2091 of gold, H3701 silver H3713 basins H4932 of a second H702 sort four H3967 hundred H6235 and ten, H312 and other H3627 vessels H505 a thousand.
  11 H3605 All H3627 the vessels H2091 of gold H3701 and of silver H2568 were five H505 thousand H702 and four H3967 hundred. H3605 All H8339 these did Sheshbazzar H5927 bring H1473 up with them of the captivity H5927 that were brought H894 up from Babylon H3389 to Jerusalem.
