Ezra 1
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1In the year one for Kurash (Cyrus) the King of Persia, for the fulfillment of the word of LORD JEHOVAH from the word of Jeremiah the Prophet, LORD JEHOVAH awakened the spirit of the King of Persia, and he brought a voice into all his kingdom, also in writing, saying:

2“Thus says Kurash the King of Persia: LORD JEHOVAH God of Heaven gave me the kingdoms of the Earth and commanded me to build him a house in Jerusalem, the city which is in Yehuda. 3Who is there among you of all the people, and his God is with him? He shall go up to Jerusalem which is in Yehuda, and he shall build the house of LORD JEHOVAH God of Israel. He is the God who is in Jerusalem. 4Everyone who is left from every region where there is a settler, the men of his place shall bring him silver and gold and livestock and beasts, with an offering for the house of God in Jerusalem.”

5And Chiefs of the fathers of Yehuda rose up, and Benjamin and the Priests and the Levites and everyone whose spirit God awakened to go up to build the house of LORD JEHOVAH, the God who is in Jerusalem. 6And everyone who was around them held in their hands vessels of silver and gold and possessions and beasts and valuable gifts which were pleasing.

7And King Kurash brought out the vessels of the house of LORD JEHOVAH which Nebukadnetsar King of Babel had taken out from Jerusalem and had put them in the house of his gods. 8And Kurash King of Persia brought them out by the hand of Mahderath the Treasurer and delivered them to Shishmatsar, Prince of Yehuda. 9And these are their numbers: thirty water pots of gold and one thousand water pots of silver, twenty and nine robes 10Four hundred and ten bowls of folded silver, thirty bowls of gold and one thousand other vessels. 11All implements of gold and of silver: five thousand and four hundred. Shishmatsar brought all of them up with the ascent of the captivity that went up from Babel to Jerusalem.
