Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled,2 the LORD stirred up52 the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation55 6963 throughout all his kingdom, and [put it] also in writing, saying,2
Thus saith1 Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given1 me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged1 me to build2 him an house at Jerusalem, which [is] in Judah.
Who [is there] among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up4 to Jerusalem, which [is] in Judah, and build4 the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he [is] the God,) which [is] in Jerusalem.
And whosoever remaineth12 in any place where he sojourneth,6 let the men of his place help17 him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that [is] in Jerusalem.
Then rose up4 the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites, with all [them] whose spirit God had raised,52 to go up2 to build2 the house of the LORD which [is] in Jerusalem.
And all they that [were] about them strengthened14 their hands with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, and with beasts, and with precious things, beside all [that] was willingly offered.99
Also Cyrus the king brought forth52 the vessels of the house of the LORD, which Nebuchadnezzar had brought forth52 out of Jerusalem, and had put4 them in the house of his gods;
Even those did Cyrus king of Persia bring forth55 by the hand of Mithredath the treasurer, and numbered4 them unto Sheshbazzar, the prince of Judah.
And this [is] the number of them: thirty chargers of gold, a thousand chargers of silver, nine and twenty knives,
Thirty basons of gold, silver basons of a second [sort] four hundred and ten, [and] other vessels a thousand.
All the vessels of gold and of silver [were] five thousand and four hundred. All [these] did Sheshbazzar bring up52 with [them of] the captivity that were brought up9 from Babylon unto Jerusalem.
