Ezra 5 Text (WEB)
  1. Now the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews who were in Judah and Jerusalem; in the name of the God of Israel [prophesied they] to them.
  2. Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem; and with them were the prophets of God, helping them.
  3. At the same time came to them Tattenai, the governor beyond the River, and Shetharbozenai, and their companions, and said thus to them, "Who gave you a decree to build this house, and to finish this wall?"
  4. Then we told them in this way, what the names of the men were who were making this building.
  5. But the eye of their God was on the elders of the Jews, and they did not make them cease, until the matter should come to Darius, and then answer should be returned by letter concerning it.
  6. The copy of the letter that Tattenai, the governor beyond the River, and Shetharbozenai, and his companions the Apharsachites, who were beyond the River, sent to Darius the king;
  7. they sent a letter to him, in which was written thus: To Darius the king, all peace.
  8. Be it known to the king, that we went into the province of Judah, to the house of the great God, which is built with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls; and this work goes on with diligence and prospers in their hands.
  9. Then we asked those elders, and said to them thus, "Who gave you a decree to build this house, and to finish this wall?"
  10. We asked them their names also, to inform you that we might write the names of the men who were at the head of them.
  11. Thus they returned us answer, saying, "We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and are building the house that was built these many years ago, which a great king of Israel built and finished.
  12. But after that our fathers had provoked the God of heaven to wrath, he gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this house, and carried the people away into Babylon.
  13. But in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, Cyrus the king made a decree to build this house of God.
  14. The gold and silver vessels also of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple that was in Jerusalem, and brought into the temple of Babylon, those Cyrus the king took out of the temple of Babylon, and they were delivered to one whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had made governor;
  15. and he said to him, 'Take these vessels, go, put them in the temple that is in Jerusalem, and let the house of God be built in its place.'
  16. Then the same Sheshbazzar came, and laid the foundations of the house of God which is in Jerusalem: and since that time even until now has it been in building, and yet it is not completed.
  17. Now therefore, if it seem good to the king, let there be search made in the king's treasure house, which is there at Babylon, whether it be so, that a decree was made of Cyrus the king to build this house of God at Jerusalem; and let the king send his pleasure to us concerning this matter."

Ezra 5 Text (Greek)
  1. και επροφητευσεν αγγαιος ο προφητης και ζαχαριας ο του αδδω προφητειαν επι τους ιουδαιους τους εν ιουδα και ιερουσαλημ εν ονοματι θεου ισραηλ επ'
  2. τοτε ανεστησαν ζοροβαβελ ο του σαλαθιηλ και ιησους ο υιος ιωσεδεκ και ηρξαντο οικοδομησαι τον οικον του θεου τον εν ιερουσαλημ και μετ' αυτων οι προφηται του θεου βοηθουντες
  3. εν αυτω τω καιρω ηλθεν επ' αυτους θανθαναι επαρχος περαν του ποταμου και σαθαρβουζανα και οι συνδουλοι αυτων και τοια ειπαν αυτοις τις εθηκεν υμιν γνωμην του οικοδομησαι τον οικον τουτον και την χορηγιαν ταυτην
  4. τοτε ταυτα ειποσαν αυτοις τινα εστιν τα ονοματα των ανδρων των οικοδομουντων την πολιν
  5. και οι οφθαλμοι του θεου επι την αιχμαλωσιαν ιουδα και ου κατηργησαν αυτους εως γνωμη τω δαρειω απηνεχθη και τοτε απεσταλη τω φορολογω υπερ
  6. διασαφησις επιστολης ης απεστειλεν θανθαναι ο επαρχος του περαν του ποταμου και σαθαρβουζανα και οι συνδουλοι αυτων αφαρσαχαιοι οι εν τω περαν του ποταμου δαρειω τω
  7. ρησιν απεστειλαν προς αυτον και ταδε γεγραπται εν αυτω δαρειω τω βασιλει ειρηνη
  8. γνωστον εστω τω βασιλει οτι επορευθημεν εις την ιουδαιαν χωραν εις οικον του θεου του μεγαλου και αυτος οικοδομειται λιθοις εκλεκτοις και ξυλα εντιθεται εν τοις τοιχοις και το εργον εκεινο επιδεξιον γινεται και ευοδουται εν ταις χερσιν
  9. τοτε ηρωτησαμεν τους πρεσβυτερους εκεινους και ουτως ειπαμεν αυτοις τις εθηκεν υμιν γνωμην τον οικον τουτον οικοδομησαι και την χορηγιαν ταυτην
  10. και τα ονοματα αυτων ηρωτησαμεν αυτους γνωρισαι σοι ωστε γραψαι σοι τα ονοματα των ανδρων των αρχοντων
  11. και τοιουτο ρημα απεκριθησαν ημιν λεγοντες ημεις εσμεν δουλοι του θεου του ουρανου και της γης και οικοδομουμεν τον οικον ος ην ωκοδομημενος προ τουτου ετη πολλα και βασιλευς του ισραηλ μεγας ωκοδομησεν αυτον και κατηρτισατο
  12. αυτοις αφ' οτε δε παρωργισαν οι πατερες ημων τον θεον του ουρανου εδωκεν αυτους εις χειρας ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλεως βαβυλωνος του χαλδαιου και τον οικον τουτον κατελυσεν και τον λαον απωκισεν εις

  14. και τα σκευη του οικου του θεου τα χρυσα και τα αργυρα α ναβουχοδονοσορ εξηνεγκεν απο οικου του εν ιερουσαλημ και απηνεγκεν αυτα εις ναον του βασιλεως εξηνεγκεν αυτα κυρος ο βασιλευς απο ναου του βασιλεως και εδωκεν τω σασαβασαρ τω θησαυροφυλακι τω επι του
  15. και ειπεν αυτω παντα τα σκευη λαβε και πορευου θες αυτα εν τω οικω τω εν ιερουσαλημ εις τον εαυτων
  16. τοτε σασαβασαρ εκεινος ηλθεν και εδωκεν θεμελιους του οικου του θεου του εν ιερουσαλημ και απο τοτε εως του νυν ωκοδομηθη και ουκ
  17. και νυν ει επι τον βασιλεα αγαθον επισκεπητω εν οικω της γαζης του βασιλεως βαβυλωνος οπως γνως οτι απο βασιλεως κυρου ετεθη γνωμη οικοδομησαι τον οικον του θεου εκεινον τον εν ιερουσαλημ και γνους ο βασιλευς περι τουτου πεμψατω προς
Ezra 5 Text (Latin)
  1. Prophetaverunt autem Aggæus propheta, et Zacharias filius Addo, prophetantes ad Judæos, qui erant in Judæa et Jerusalem, in nomine Dei Israël.
  2. Tunc surrexerunt Zorobabel filius Salathiel, et Josue filius Josedec, et cœperunt ædificare templum Dei in Jerusalem, et cum eis prophetæ Dei adjuvantes eos.
  3. In ipso autem tempore venit ad eos Thathanai, qui erat dux trans flumen, et Stharbuzanai, et consiliarii eorum : sicque dixerunt eis : Quis dedit vobis consilium ut domum hanc ædificaretis, et muros ejus instauraretis ?
  4. Ad quod respondimus eis, quæ essent nomina hominum auctorum ædificationis illius.
  5. Oculus autem Dei eorum factus est super senes Judæorum, et non potuerunt inhibere eos. Placuique ut res ad Darium referretur, et tunc satisfacerent adversus accusationem illam.
  6. Exemplar epistolæ, quam misit Thathanai dux regionis trans flumen, et Stharbuzanai, et consiliatores ejus Arphasachæi, qui erant trans flumen, ad Darium regem.
  7. Sermo, quem miserant ei, sic scriptus erat : Dario regi pax omnis.
  8. Notum sit regi, isse nos ad Judæam provinciam, ad domum Dei magni, quæ ædificatur lapide impolito, et ligna ponuntur in parietibus : opusque illud diligenter exstruitur, et crescit in manibus eorum.
  9. Interrogavimus ergo senes illos, et ita diximus eis : Quis dedit vobis potestatem ut domum hanc ædificaretis, et muros hos instauraretis ?
  10. Sed et nomina eorum quæsivimus ab eis, ut nuntiaremus tibi : scripsimusque nomina eorum virorum, qui sunt principes in eis.
  11. Hujuscemodi autem sermonem responderunt nobis dicentes : Nos sumus servi Dei cæli et terræ, et ædificamus templum, quod erat exstructum ante hos annos multos, quodque rex Israël magnus ædificaverat, et exstruxerat.
  12. Postquam autem ad iracundiam provocaverunt patres nostri Deum cæli, tradidit eos in manus Nabuchodonosor regis Babylonis Chaldæi, domum quoque hanc destruxit, et populum ejus transtulit in Babylonem.
  13. Anno autem primo Cyri regis Babylonis, Cyrus rex proposuit edictum ut domus Dei hæc ædificaretur.
  14. Nam et vasa templi Dei aurea et argentea, quæ Nabuchodonosor tulerat de templo, quod erat in Jerusalem, et asportaverat ea in templum Babylonis, protulit Cyrus rex de templo Babylonis, et data sunt Sassabasar vocabulo, quem et principem constituit,
  15. dixitque ei : Hæc vasa tolle, et vade, et pone ea in templo, quod est in Jerusalem, et domus Dei ædificetur in loco suo.
  16. Tunc itaque Sassabasar ille venit et posuit fundamenta templi Dei in Jerusalem, et ex eo tempore usque nunc ædificatur, et necdum completum est.
  17. Nunc ergo, si videtur regi bonum recenseat in bibliotheca regis, quæ est in Babylone, utrumnam a Cyro rege jussum fuerit ut ædificaretur domus Dei in Jerusalem, et voluntatem regis super hac re mittat ad nos.
Ezra 5 Text (KJV)
  1. Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them.
  2. Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets of God helping them.
  3. At the same time came to them Tatnai, governor on this side the river, and Shethar-boznai, and their companions, and said thus unto them, Who hath commanded you to build this house, and to make up this wall?
  4. Then said we unto them after this manner, What are the names of the men that make this building?
  5. But the eye of their God was upon the elders of the Jews, that they could not cause them to cease, till the matter came to Darius: and then they returned answer by letter concerning this matter.
  6. The copy of the letter that Tatnai, governor on this side the river, and Shethar-boznai, and his companions the Apharsachites, which were on this side the river, sent unto Darius the king:
  7. They sent a letter unto him, wherein was written thus; Unto Darius the king, all peace.
  8. Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of the great God, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth fast on, and prospereth in their hands.
  9. Then asked we those elders, and said unto them thus, Who commanded you to build this house, and to make up these walls?
  10. We asked their names also, to certify thee, that we might write the names of the men that were the chief of them.
  11. And thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house that was builded these many years ago, which a great king of Israel builded and set up.
  12. But after that our fathers had provoked the God of heaven unto wrath, he gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this house, and carried the people away into Babylon.
  13. But in the first year of Cyrus the king of Babylon the same king Cyrus made a decree to build this house of God.
  14. And the vessels also of gold and silver of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple that was in Jerusalem, and brought them into the temple of Babylon, those did Cyrus the king take out of the temple of Babylon, and they were delivered unto one, whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had made governor;
  15. And said unto him, Take these vessels, go, carry them into the temple that is in Jerusalem, and let the house of God be builded in his place.
  16. Then came the same Sheshbazzar, and laid the foundation of the house of God which is in Jerusalem: and since that time even until now hath it been in building, and yet it is not finished.
  17. Now therefore, if it seem good to the king, let there be search made in the king's treasure house, which is there at Babylon, whether it be so, that a decree was made of Cyrus the king to build this house of God at Jerusalem, and let the king send his pleasure to us concerning this matter.
