1 H7637 And when the seventh H2320 month H5060 [H8799] had come, H1121 and the sons H3478 of Israel H5892 were in the cities, H5971 the people H622 [H8735] gathered themselves together H259 as one H376 man H3389 at Jerusalem.
2 H6965 [H8799] Then stood up H3442 Jeshua H1121 the son H3136 of Jozadak, H251 and his brethren H3548 the priests, H2216 and Zerubbabel H1121 the son H7597 of Shealtiel, H251 and his brethren, H1129 [H8799] and built H4196 the altar H430 of the God H3478 of Israel, H5927 [H8687] to offer H5930 burnt offerings H3789 [H8803] on it, as it is written H8451 in the law H4872 of Moses H376 the man H430 of God.
3 H3559 [H8686] And they set H4196 the altar H4350 upon its bases; H367 for fear H5971 was upon them because of the people H776 of those lands: H5927 [H8686] and they offered H5930 burnt offerings H3068 on it to the LORD, H5930 even burnt offerings H1242 morning H6153 and evening.
4 H6213 [H8799] They kept H2282 also the feast H5521 of booths, H3789 [H8803] as it is written, H3117 and offered the daily H5930 burnt offerings H4557 by number, H4941 according to the custom, H1697 as the duty H3117 of every day H3117 required;
5 H310 And afterward H8548 offered the continual H5930 burnt offering, H2320 both of the new moons, H4150 and of all the set feasts H3068 of the LORD H6942 [H8794] that were sanctified, H5068 [H8693] and of every one that willingly offered H5071 a freewill offering H3068 to the LORD.
6 H259 From the first H3117 day H7637 of the seventh H2320 month H2490 [H8689] they began H5927 [H8687] to offer H5930 burnt offerings H3068 to the LORD. H3245 0 But the foundation H1964 of the temple H3068 of the LORD H3245 [H8795] was not yet laid.
7 H5414 [H8799] They gave H3701 money H2672 [H8802] also to the masons, H2796 and to the carpenters; H3978 and food, H4960 and drink, H8081 and oil, H6722 to them of Zidon, H6876 and to them of Tyre, H935 [H8687] to bring H730 cedar H6086 trees H3844 from Lebanon H3220 to the sea H3305 of Joppa, H7558 according to the grant H3566 that they had of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia.
8 H8145 Now in the second H8141 year H935 [H8800] of their coming H1004 to the house H430 of God H3389 at Jerusalem, H8145 in the second H2320 month, H2490 [H8689] began H2216 Zerubbabel H1121 the son H7597 of Shealtiel, H3442 and Jeshua H1121 the son H3136 of Jozadak, H7605 and the remnant H251 of their brethren H3548 the priests H3881 and the Levites, H935 [H8802] and all they that had come out H7628 of the captivity H3389 to Jerusalem; H5975 [H8686] and appointed H3881 the Levites, H6242 from twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4605 and upward, H5329 [H8763] to set forward H4399 the work H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD.
9 H5975 [H8799] Then stood H3442 Jeshua H1121 with his sons H251 and his brethren, H6934 Kadmiel H1121 and his sons, H1121 the sons H3063 of Judah, H259 together, H5329 [H8763] to set forward H6213 H4399 [H8802] the workmen H1004 in the house H430 of God: H1121 the sons H2582 of Henadad, H1121 with their sons H251 and their brethren H3881 the Levites.
10 H1129 [H8802] And when the builders H3245 [H8765] laid the foundation H1964 of the temple H3068 of the LORD, H5975 [H8686] they set H3548 the priests H3847 [H8794] in their apparel H2689 with trumpets, H3881 and the Levites H1121 the sons H623 of Asaph H4700 with cymbals, H1984 [H8763] to praise H3068 the LORD, H3027 after the hands H1732 of David H4428 king H3478 of Israel.
11 H6030 [H8799] And they sang together by course H1984 [H8763] in praising H3034 [H8687] and giving thanks H3068 to the LORD; H2896 because he is good, H2617 for his mercy H5769 endureth to the age H3478 toward Israel. H5971 And all the people H7321 [H8689] shouted H1419 with a great H8643 shout, H1984 [H8763] when they praised H3068 the LORD, H3245 0 because the foundation H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H3245 [H8717] was laid.
12 H7227 But many H3548 of the priests H3881 and Levites H7218 and heads H1 of the fathers' H2205 houses, old men, H7200 [H8804] that had seen H7223 the first H1004 house, H3245 0 when the foundation H1004 of this house H3245 [H8800] was laid H5869 before their eyes, H1058 [H8802] wept H1419 with a loud H6963 voice; H7227 and many H8643 shouted H7311 [H8687] aloud H8057 for joy:
13 H5971 So that the people H5234 [H8688] could not discern H6963 the noise H8643 of the shout H8057 of the joy H6963 from the noise H1065 of the weeping H5971 of the people: H5971 for the people H7321 [H8688] shouted H1419 with a loud H8643 shout, H6963 and the noise H8085 [H8738] was heard H7350 afar off.
