Ezra 1 - AMP

2 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He has charged me to build Him a house at Jerusalem in Judah. 3 Whoever is among you of all His people, may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and re build the house of the Lord, the God of Israel, in Jerusalem; He is God. 4 And in any place where a survivor sojourns, let the men of that place assist him with silver and gold, with goods and beasts, besides freewill offerings for the house of God in Jerusalem. 5 Then rose up the heads of the fathers' houses of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and Levites, with all those whose spirits God had stirred up, to go up to re build the house of the Lord in Jerusalem. 6 And all those who were around them aided them with vessels of silver, with gold, goods, beasts, and precious things, besides all that was willingly and freely offered. 7 Also Cyrus the king brought out the vessels of the house of the Lord, which Nebuchadnezzar had brought from Jerusalem and had put in the house of his gods. 8 These Cyrus king of Persia directed Mithredath the treasurer to bring forth and count out to Sheshbazzar the prince of Judah. 9 And they numbered: 30 basins of gold; 1,000 basins of silver; 2sacrificial dishes; 10 Of gold bowls, 30; another sort of silver bowl, 410; and other vessels, 1,000. 11 All the vessels of gold and of silver were 5,400. All these Sheshbazzar brought with the people of the captivity from Babylon to Jerusalem.
