1 H259 Now in the first H8141 year H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H1697 that the word H3068 of Yahweh H6310 by the mouth H3414 of Jeremiah H3615 might be accomplished, H3068 Yahweh H5782 stirred up H7307 the spirit H3566 of Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H5674 so that he made a proclamation H4438 throughout all his kingdom, H4385 and put it also in writing, H559 saying,
2 H559 "Thus says H3566 Cyrus H4428 king H6539 of Persia, H3068 ‘Yahweh, H430 the God H8064 of heaven, H5414 has given H4467 me all the kingdoms H776 of the earth; H6485 and he has commanded H1129 me to build H1004 him a house H3389 in Jerusalem, H3063 which is in Judah.
3 H5971 Whoever there is among you of all his people, H430 may his God H5927 be with him, and let him go up H3389 to Jerusalem, H3063 which is in Judah, H1129 and build H1004 the house H3068 of Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel H430 (he is God), H3389 which is in Jerusalem.
4 H7604 Whoever is left, H4725 in any place H1481 where he lives, H582 let the men H4725 of his place H5375 help H3701 him with silver, H2091 with gold, H7399 with goods, H929 and with animals, H5071 besides the freewill offering H1004 for the house H430 of God H3389 which is in Jerusalem.'"
