place them in the house of GOD." Now therefore, Tatnai, governor beyond the river, Shethar-boznai, and your

companions which are beyond the river, be ye far from " thence : let the work of this house of God alone ; let

the governor of the Jews and the elders of the Jews build this house of God in his place. Moreover I make a decree what ye shall do to the elders of these Jews for the building of this house of GoD: that of the king's 'goods, even of the tribute beyond the river, forthwith

expenses be given unto these men, that they be not hindered. And that which they have need of, both 'young bullocks, and rams, and lambs, for the burnt• offerings of the God of heaven, wheat, salt, wine, and oil,

according to the appointment of the priests which are at "Jerusalem, let it be given them day by day without fail :

that they may offer sacrifices of sweet savours unto the • God of heaven, and pray for the life of the king, and of

Also I have made a decree, that whosoever ' shall alter this word, let timber be pulled down from his

house, and being set up, let him be hanged thereon: and • let his house be made a dunghill for this. And the GOD • that hath caused his name to dwell there destroy all

kings and people, that shall put to their hand to alter ' and to destroy this house of God which is at Jerusalem. 'I Darius have made a decree ; let it be done with speed.'

And the children of Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the rest of the children of the captivity, kept the dedication of this house of God with joy, and offered at the dedication of this house of God an hundred bullocks, two hundred rams, four hundred lambs; and for a sinoffering for all Israel, twelve he-goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel. And they set the priests in their divisions, and the Levites in their courses, for the service of God, which is at Jerusalem : as it is written in the book of Moses. And the children of the captivity kept the passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month. For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves. And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the LORD God of Israel, did eat, and kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy : for the LORD had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.
