Ezra 8 Text (WEB)
  1. Now these are the heads of their fathers' [houses], and this is the genealogy of those who went up with me from Babylon, in the reign of Artaxerxes the king:
  2. Of the sons of Phinehas, Gershom. Of the sons of Ithamar, Daniel. Of the sons of David, Hattush.
  3. Of the sons of Shecaniah, of the sons of Parosh, Zechariah; and with him were reckoned by genealogy of the males one hundred fifty.
  4. Of the sons of Pahathmoab, Eliehoenai the son of Zerahiah; and with him two hundred males.
  5. Of the sons of Shecaniah, the son of Jahaziel; and with him three hundred males.
  6. Of the sons of Adin, Ebed the son of Jonathan; and with him fifty males.
  7. Of the sons of Elam, Jeshaiah the son of Athaliah; and with him seventy males.
  8. Of the sons of Shephatiah, Zebadiah the son of Michael; and with him eighty males.
  9. Of the sons of Joab, Obadiah the son of Jehiel; and with him two hundred and eighteen males.
  10. Of the sons of Shelomith, the son of Josiphiah; and with him one hundred sixty males.
  11. Of the sons of Bebai, Zechariah the son of Bebai; and with him twenty-eight males.
  12. Of the sons of Azgad, Johanan the son of Hakkatan; and with him one hundred ten males.
  13. Of the sons of Adonikam, [who were] the last; and these are their names: Eliphelet, Jeuel, and Shemaiah; and with them sixty males.
  14. Of the sons of Bigvai, Uthai and Zabbud; and with them seventy males.
  15. I gathered them together to the river that runs to Ahava; and there we encamped three days: and I viewed the people, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi.
  16. Then sent I for Eliezer, for Ariel, for Shemaiah, and for Elnathan, and for Jarib, and for Elnathan, and for Nathan, and for Zechariah, and for Meshullam, chief men; also for Joiarib, and for Elnathan, who were teachers.
  17. I sent them forth to Iddo the chief at the place Casiphia; and I told them what they should tell Iddo, [and] his brothers the Nethinim, at the place Casiphia, that they should bring to us ministers for the house of our God.
  18. According to the good hand of our God on us they brought us a man of discretion, of the sons of Mahli, the son of Levi, the son of Israel; and Sherebiah, with his sons and his brothers, eighteen;
  19. and Hashabiah, and with him Jeshaiah of the sons of Merari, his brothers and their sons, twenty;
  20. and of the Nethinim, whom David and the princes had given for the service of the Levites, two hundred and twenty Nethinim: all of them were mentioned by name.
  21. Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek of him a straight way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.
  22. For I was ashamed to ask of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way, because we had spoken to the king, saying, "The hand of our God is on all those who seek him, for good; but his power and his wrath is against all those who forsake him."
  23. So we fasted and begged our God for this: and he was entreated of us.
  24. Then I set apart twelve of the chiefs of the priests, even Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brothers with them,
  25. and weighed to them the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, even the offering for the house of our God, which the king, and his counselors, and his princes, and all Israel there present, had offered:
  26. I weighed into their hand six hundred fifty talents of silver, and silver vessels one hundred talents; of gold one hundred talents;
  27. and twenty bowls of gold, of one thousand darics; and two vessels of fine bright brass, precious as gold.
  28. I said to them, "You are holy to Yahweh, and the vessels are holy; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering to Yahweh, the God of your fathers.
  29. Watch, and keep them, until you weigh them before the chiefs of the priests and the Levites, and the princes of the fathers' [houses] of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the rooms of the house of Yahweh."
  30. So the priests and the Levites received the weight of the silver and the gold, and the vessels, to bring them to Jerusalem to the house of our God.
  31. Then we departed from the river Ahava on the twelfth [day] of the first month, to go to Jerusalem: and the hand of our God was on us, and he delivered us from the hand of the enemy and the bandit by the way.
  32. We came to Jerusalem, and stayed there three days.
  33. On the fourth day the silver and the gold and the vessels were weighed in the house of our God into the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest; and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; and with them was Jozabad the son of Jeshua, and Noadiah the son of Binnui, the Levite;
  34. the whole by number and by weight: and all the weight was written at that time.
  35. The children of the captivity, who had come out of exile, offered burnt offerings to the God of Israel, twelve bulls for all Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven lambs, and twelve male goats for a sin offering: all this was a burnt offering to Yahweh.
  36. They delivered the king's commissions to the king's satraps, and to the governors beyond the River: and they furthered the people and the house of God.

  14. De filii Begui, Uthai et Zachur, et cum eis septuaginta viri.
  15. Congregavi autem eos ad fluvium, qui decurrit ad Ahava, et mansimus ibi tribus diebus : quæsivique in populo et in sacerdotibus de filiis Levi, et non inveni ibi.
  16. Itaque misi Eliezer, et Ariel, et Semeiam, et Elnathan, et Jarib, et alterum Elnathan, et Nathan, et Zachariam, et Mosollam principes : et Joiarib, et Elnathan sapientes.
  17. Et misi eos ad Eddo, qui est primus in Chasphiæ loco, et posui in ore eorum verba, quæ loquerentur ad Eddo, et fratres ejus Nathinæos in loco Chasphiæ, ut adducerent nobis ministros domus Dei nostri.

  21. Et prædicavi ibi jejunium juxta fluvium Ahava ut affligeremur coram Domino Deo nostro, et peteremus ab eo viam rectam nobis et filiis nostris, universæque substantiæ nostræ.
  22. Erubui enim petere a rege auxilium et equites, qui defenderent nos ab inimico in via : quia dixeramus regi : Manus Dei nostri est super omnes, qui quærunt eum in bonitates : et imperium ejus et fortitudo ejus, et furor super omnes, qui derelinquunt eum.
  23. Jejunavimus autem, et rogavimus Deum nostrum per hoc : et evenit nobis prospere.
  24. Et separavi de principibus sacerdotum duodecim, Sarabiam, et Hasabiam, et cum eis de fratribus eorum decem :
  25. appendique eis argentum et aurum, et vasa consecrata domus Dei nostri, quæ obtulerat rex et consiliatores ejus, et principes ejus, universusque Israël eorum, qui inventi fuerant :
  26. et appendi in manibus eorum argenti talenta sexcenta quinquaginta, et vasa argentea centum, auri centum talenta :
  27. et crateres aureos viginti, qui habebant solidos millenos, et vasa æris fulgentis optimi duo, pulchra, ut aurum.

  29. vigilate et custodite, donec appendatis coram principibus sacerdotum, et Levitarum, et ducibus familiarum Israël in Jerusalem, in thesaurum domus Domini.
  30. Susceperunt autem sacerdotes et Levitæ pondus argenti, et auri, et vasorum, ut deferrent Jerusalem in domum Dei nostri.
  31. Promovimus ergo a flumine Ahava duodecimo die mensis primi ut pergeremus Jerusalem : et manus Dei nostri fuit super nos, et liberavit nos de manu inimici et insidiatoris in via.
  32. Et venimus Jerusalem, et mansimus ibi tribus diebus.
  33. Die autem quarta appensum est argentum, et aurum, et vasa in domo Dei nostri per manum Meremoth filii Uriæ sacerdotis, et cum eo Eleazar filius Phinees, cumque eis Jozabed filius Josue, et Noadaia filius Bennoi Levitæ,
  34. juxta numerum et pondus omnium : descriptumque est omne pondus in tempore illo.
  35. Sed et qui venerant de captivitate filii transmigrationis, obtulerunt holocautomata Deo Israël, vitulos duodecim pro omni populo Israël, arietes nonaginta sex, agnos septuaginta septem, hircos pro peccato duodecim : omnia in holocaustum Domino.
  36. Dederunt autem edicta regis satrapis, qui erant de conspectu regis et ducibus trans flumen, et elevaverunt populum et domum Dei.
Ezra 8 Text (KJV)
  1. These are now the chief of their fathers, and this is the genealogy of them that went up with me from Babylon, in the reign of Artaxerxes the king.
  2. Of the sons of Phinehas; Gershom: of the sons of Ithamar; Daniel: of the sons of David; Hattush.
  3. Of the sons of Shechaniah, of the sons of Pharosh; Zechariah: and with him were reckoned by genealogy of the males an hundred and fifty.
  4. Of the sons of Pahath-moab; Elihoenai the son of Zerahiah, and with him two hundred males.
  5. Of the sons of Shechaniah; the son of Jahaziel, and with him three hundred males.
  6. Of the sons also of Adin; Ebed the son of Jonathan, and with him fifty males.
  7. And of the sons of Elam; Jeshaiah the son of Athaliah, and with him seventy males.
  8. And of the sons of Shephatiah; Zebadiah the son of Michael, and with him fourscore males.
  9. Of the sons of Joab; Obadiah the son of Jehiel, and with him two hundred and eighteen males.
  10. And of the sons of Shelomith; the son of Josiphiah, and with him an hundred and threescore males.
  11. And of the sons of Bebai; Zechariah the son of Bebai, and with him twenty and eight males.
  12. And of the sons of Azgad; Johanan the son of Hakkatan, and with him an hundred and ten males.
  13. And of the last sons of Adonikam, whose names are these, Eliphelet, Jeiel, and Shemaiah, and with them threescore males.
  14. Of the sons also of Bigvai; Uthai, and Zabbud, and with them seventy males.
  15. And I gathered them together to the river that runneth to Ahava; and there abode we in tents three days: and I viewed the people, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi.
  16. Then sent I for Eliezer, for Ariel, for Shemaiah, and for Elnathan, and for Jarib, and for Elnathan, and for Nathan, and for Zechariah, and for Meshullam, chief men; also for Joiarib, and for Elnathan, men of understanding.
  17. And I sent them with commandment unto Iddo the chief at the place Casiphia, and I told them what they should say unto Iddo, and to his brethren the Nethinims, at the place Casiphia, that they should bring unto us ministers for the house of our God.
  18. And by the good hand of our God upon us they brought us a man of understanding, of the sons of Mahli, the son of Levi, the son of Israel; and Sherebiah, with his sons and his brethren, eighteen;
  19. And Hashabiah, and with him Jeshaiah of the sons of Merari, his brethren and their sons, twenty;
  20. Also of the Nethinims, whom David and the princes had appointed for the service of the Levites, two hundred and twenty Nethinims: all of them were expressed by name.
  21. Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.
  22. For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.
  23. So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.
  24. Then I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them,
  25. And weighed unto them the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, even the offering of the house of our God, which the king, and his counsellers, and his lords, and all Israel there present, had offered:
  26. I even weighed unto their hand six hundred and fifty talents of silver, and silver vessels an hundred talents, and of gold an hundred talents;
  27. Also twenty basons of gold, of a thousand drams; and two vessels of fine copper, precious as gold.
  28. And I said unto them, Ye are holy unto the LORD; the vessels are holy also; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering unto the LORD God of your fathers.
  29. Watch ye, and keep them, until ye weigh them before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.
  30. So took the priests and the Levites the weight of the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, to bring them to Jerusalem unto the house of our God.
  31. Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go unto Jerusalem: and the hand of our God was upon us, and he delivered us from the hand of the enemy, and of such as lay in wait by the way.
  32. And we came to Jerusalem, and abode there three days.
  33. Now on the fourth day was the silver and the gold and the vessels weighed in the house of our God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest; and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; and with them was Jozabad the son of Jeshua, and Noadiah the son of Binnui, Levites;
  34. By number and by weight of every one: and all the weight was written at that time.
  35. Also the children of those that had been carried away, which were come out of the captivity, offered burnt offerings unto the God of Israel, twelve bullocks for all Israel, ninety and six rams, seventy and seven lambs, twelve he goats for a sin offering: all this was a burnt offering unto the LORD.
  36. And they delivered the king's commissions unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors on this side the river: and they furthered the people, and the house of God.
