CLV(i) 1 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, to conclude the word of Yahweh from the mouth of Jeremiah, Yahweh roused the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia so that he caused a notification to pass through all his kingdom, and also in writing, saying, 2 Thus speaks Cyrus king of Persia:Yahweh Elohim of the heavens has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He Himself has committed to me to build for Him a House in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. 3 Anyone among you of all His people, may his Elohim be with him. Let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and let him rebuild the House of Yahweh Elohim of Israel. He is the One, Elohim, Who is in Jerusalem. 4 As for anyone that is remaining from all the places where he is sojourning, let the men of his place assist him with silver and with gold, with goods and beasts, along with the voluntary offering for the House of the One, Elohim, Who is in Jerusalem. 5 The patriarchal heads of Judah and Benjamin arose, also the priests and the Levites, with everyone whose spirit the One, Elohim, had roused to go up to rebuild the House of Yahweh Who is in Jerusalem. 6 As for all those around them, they encouraged their hands with articles of silver, with gold, with goods and beasts and token presents besides all that was voluntarily given. 7 As for king Cyrus, he brought forth the articles of the House of Yahweh which Nebuchadnezzar had brought forth from Jerusalem and had put them in the house of his idol. 8 Cyrus king of Persia brought them forth by the hand of the treasurer Mithredath who counted them off to Sheshbazzar prince of Judah. 9 Now these were the numbers of them:thirty vessels of gold, a thousand vessels of silver, twenty-nine alternatives, 10 thirty small bowls of gold, two thousand four hundred ten small bowls of silver, a thousand other articles. 11 All the articles of gold and of silver were five thousand four hundred. Sheshbazzar brought all these up while bringing up the sons of deportation from Babylon to Jerusalem.
