VERSE

  1. 1. Now when the adversaries
    H6862
    of Judah
    H3063
    and Benjamin
    H1144
    heard
    H8085
    that the children
    H1121
    of the captivity
    H1473
    builded
    H1129
    the temple
    H1964
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel;
    H3478
  2. 2. Then they came
    H5066
    to Zerubbabel,
    H2216
    and to the chief
    H7218
    of the fathers,
    H1
    and said
    H559
    unto them, Let us build
    H1129
    with you: for we seek
    H1875
    your God,
    H430
    as ye do; and we do sacrifice
    H2076
    unto him since the days
    H3117
    of Esarhaddon
    H634
    king
    H4428
    of Assur,
    H804
    which brought us up hither.
    H5927
  3. 3. But Zerubbabel,
    H2216
    and Jeshua,
    H3442
    and the rest
    H7605
    of the chief
    H7218
    of the fathers
    H1
    of Israel,
    H3478
    said
    H559
    unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build
    H1129
    an house
    H1004
    unto our God;
    H430
    but we ourselves together
    H3162
    will build
    H1129
    unto the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    as king
    H4428
    Cyrus
    H3566
    the king
    H4428
    of Persia
    H6539
    hath commanded
    H6680
    us.
  4. 4. Then the people
    H5971
    of the land
    H776
    weakened
    H7503
    the hands
    H3027
    of the people
    H5971
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and troubled
    H926
    H1089
    them in building,
    H1129
  5. 5. And hired
    H7936
    counsellors
    H3289
    against them, to frustrate
    H6565
    their purpose,
    H6098
    all the days
    H3117
    of Cyrus
    H3566
    king
    H4428
    of Persia,
    H6539
    even until the reign
    H4438
    of Darius
    H1867
    king
    H4428
    of Persia.
    H6539
  6. 6. And in the reign
    H4438
    of Ahasuerus,
    H325
    in the beginning
    H8462
    of his reign,
    H4438
    wrote
    H3789
    they unto him an accusation
    H7855
    against the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Judah
    H3063
    and Jerusalem.
    H3389
  7. 7. And in the days
    H3117
    of Artaxerxes
    H783
    wrote
    H3789
    Bishlam,
    H1312
    Mithredath,
    H4990
    Tabeel,
    H2870
    and the rest
    H7605
    of their companions,
    H3674
    unto Artaxerxes
    H783
    king
    H4428
    of Persia;
    H6539
    and the writing
    H3791
    of the letter
    H5406
    was written
    H3789
    in the Syrian tongue,
    H762
    and interpreted
    H8638
    in the Syrian tongue.
    H762
  8. 8. Rehum
    H7348
    the chancellor
    H2942
    and
    H1169
    Shimshai
    H8124
    the scribe
    H5613
    wrote
    H3790
    a
    H2298
    letter
    H104
    against
    H5922
    Jerusalem
    H3390
    to Artaxerxes
    H783
    the king
    H4430
    in this sort:
    H3660
  9. 9. Then
    H116
    wrote Rehum
    H7348
    the chancellor,
    H2942
    H1169
    and Shimshai
    H8124
    the scribe,
    H5613
    and the rest
    H7606
    of their companions;
    H3675
    the Dinaites,
    H1784
    the Apharsathchites,
    H671
    the Tarpelites,
    H2967
    the Apharsites,
    H670
    the Archevites,
    H756
    the Babylonians,
    H896
    the Susanchites,
    H7801
    the Dehavites,
    H1723
    and the Elamites,
    H5962
  10. 10. And the rest
    H7606
    of the nations
    H524
    whom
    H1768
    the great
    H7229
    and noble
    H3358
    Asnappar
    H620
    brought over,
    H1541
    and set
    H3488
    H1994
    in the cities
    H7149
    of Samaria,
    H8115
    and the rest
    H7606
    that are on this side
    H5675
    the river,
    H5103
    and at such a time.
    H3706
  11. 11. This
    H1836
    is the copy
    H6573
    of the letter
    H104
    that
    H1768
    they sent
    H7972
    unto him,
    H5922
    even unto Artaxerxes
    H783
    the king;
    H4430
    Thy servants
    H5649
    the men
    H606
    on this side
    H5675
    the river,
    H5103
    and at such a time.
    H3706
  12. 12. Be it
    H1934
    known
    H3046
    unto the king,
    H4430
    that the Jews
    H3062
    which
    H1768
    came up
    H5559
    from
    H4481
    thee
    H3890
    to us
    H5922
    are come
    H858
    unto Jerusalem,
    H3390
    building
    H1124
    the rebellious
    H4779
    and the bad
    H873
    city,
    H7149
    and have set up
    H3635
    H3635
    the walls
    H7792
    thereof, and joined
    H2338
    the foundations.
    H787
  13. 13. Be it known
    H3046
    H1934
    now
    H3705
    unto the king,
    H4430
    that, if
    H2006
    this
    H1791
    city
    H7149
    be builded,
    H1124
    and the walls
    H7792
    set up
    H3635
    again, then will they not
    H3809
    pay
    H5415
    toll,
    H4061
    tribute,
    H1093
    and custom,
    H1983
    and so thou shalt endamage
    H5142
    the revenue
    H674
    of the kings.
    H4430
  14. 14. Now
    H3705
    because
    H3606
    we
    H6903
    have
    H1768
    maintenance
    H4415
    H4416
    from the king's palace,
    H1965
    and it was not
    H3809
    meet
    H749
    for us to see
    H2370
    the king's
    H4430
    dishonour,
    H6173
    therefore
    H1836
    have
    H5922
    we sent
    H7972
    and certified
    H3046
    the king;
    H4430
  15. 15. That search
    H1240
    may be made in the book
    H5609
    of the records
    H1799
    of thy fathers:
    H2
    so shalt thou find
    H7912
    in the book
    H5609
    of the records,
    H1799
    and know
    H3046
    that this
    H1791
    city
    H7149
    is a rebellious
    H4779
    city,
    H7149
    and hurtful
    H5142
    unto kings
    H4430
    and provinces,
    H4083
    and that they have moved
    H5648
    sedition
    H849
    within the same
    H1459
    of
    H4481
    old
    H5957
    time:
    H3118
    for
    H5922
    which
    H1836
    cause was this
    H1791
    city
    H7149
    destroyed.
    H2718
  16. 16. We
    H586
    certify
    H3046
    the king
    H4430
    that, if
    H2006
    this
    H1791
    city
    H7149
    be builded
    H1124
    again, and the walls
    H7792
    thereof set up,
    H3635
    by this
    H1836
    means
    H6903
    thou shalt have
    H383
    no
    H3809
    portion
    H2508
    on this side
    H5675
    the river.
    H5103
  17. 17. Then sent
    H7972
    the king
    H4430
    an answer
    H6600
    unto
    H5922
    Rehum
    H7348
    the chancellor,
    H2942
    H1169
    and to Shimshai
    H8124
    the scribe,
    H5613
    and to the rest
    H7606
    of their companions
    H3675
    that dwell
    H3488
    in Samaria,
    H8115
    and unto the rest
    H7606
    beyond
    H5675
    the river,
    H5103
    Peace,
    H8001
    and at such a time.
    H3706
  18. 18. The letter
    H5407
    which ye sent
    H7972
    unto us
    H5922
    hath been plainly
    H6568
    read
    H7123
    before
    H6925
    me.
  19. 19. And I
    H4481
    commanded,
    H7761
    H2942
    and search
    H1240
    hath been made, and it is found
    H7912
    that this
    H1791
    city
    H7149
    of
    H4481
    old
    H5957
    time
    H3118
    hath made insurrection
    H5376
    against
    H5922
    kings,
    H4430
    and that rebellion
    H4776
    and sedition
    H849
    have been made
    H5648
    therein.
  20. 20. There have been
    H1934
    mighty
    H8624
    kings
    H4430
    also over
    H5922
    Jerusalem,
    H3390
    which have ruled
    H7990
    over all
    H3606
    countries beyond
    H5675
    the river;
    H5103
    and toll,
    H4061
    tribute,
    H1093
    and custom,
    H1983
    was paid
    H3052
    unto them.
  21. 21. Give
    H7761
    ye now
    H3705
    commandment
    H2942
    to cause
    H989
    these
    H479
    men
    H1400
    to cease,
    H989
    and that this
    H1791
    city
    H7149
    be not
    H3809
    builded,
    H1124
    until
    H5705
    another commandment
    H2941
    shall be given
    H7761
    from me.
    H4481
  22. 22. Take heed
    H1934
    H2095
    now that ye fail
    H7960
    not to do
    H5648
    H5922
    this:
    H1836
    why
    H4101
    should damage
    H2257
    grow
    H7680
    to the hurt
    H5142
    of the kings?
    H4430
  23. 23. Now
    H116
    when
    H1768
    the
    H4481
    copy
    H6573
    of king
    H4430
    Artaxerxes'
    H783
    letter
    H5407
    was read
    H7123
    before
    H6925
    Rehum,
    H7348
    and Shimshai
    H8124
    the scribe,
    H5613
    and their companions,
    H3675
    they went up
    H236
    in haste
    H924
    to Jerusalem
    H3390
    unto
    H5922
    the Jews,
    H3062
    and made them
    H1994
    to cease
    H989
    by force
    H153
    and power.
    H2429
  24. 24. Then
    H116
    ceased
    H989
    the work
    H5673
    of the house
    H1005
    of God
    H426
    which is at Jerusalem.
    H3390
    So it ceased
    H1934
    H989
    unto
    H5705
    the second
    H8648
    year
    H8140
    of the reign
    H4437
    of Darius
    H1868
    king
    H4430
    of Persia.
