Ezra 1

1:1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word
 of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the
 LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he
 made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and [put it]
 also in writing, saying,
1:2 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath
 given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me
 to build him a house at Jerusalem, which [is] in Judah.
1:3 Who [is there] among you of all his people? his God be with
 him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which [is] in Judah, and
 build the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he [is] the God,)
 who [is] in Jerusalem.
1:4 And whoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let
 the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and
 with goods, and with beasts, besides the free-will-offering for
 the house of God that [is] in Jerusalem.
1:5 Then arose the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin,
 and the priests, and the Levites, with all [them] whose spirit
 God had raised, to go up to build the house of the LORD which
 [is] in Jerusalem.
1:6 And all they that [were] about them strengthened their hands
 with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, and with beasts,
 and with precious things, besides all [that] was willingly
1:7 Also Cyrus the king brought forth the vessels of the house
 of the LORD, which Nebuchadnezzar had brought from Jerusalem,
 and had put them in the house of his gods;
1:8 Even those did Cyrus king of Persia bring forth by the hand
 of Mithredath the treasurer, and numbered them to Sheshbazzar,
 the prince of Judah.
1:9 And this [is] the number of them: thirty chargers of gold, a
 thousand chargers of silver, nine and twenty knives,
1:10 Thirty basins of gold, silver basins of a second [sort]
 four hundred and ten, [and] other vessels a thousand.
1:11 All the vessels of gold and of silver [were] five thousand
 and four hundred. All [these] did Sheshbazzar bring with [them
 of] the captivity that were brought from Babylon to Jerusalem.
