And when the seventhH7637 monthH2320 was come,H5060 and the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 were in the cities,H5892 the peopleH5971 gatheredH622 themselves together as oneH259 manH376 to Jerusalem.H3389
Then stoodH6965 up JeshuaH3442 the sonH1121 of Jozadak,H3136 and his brothersH251 the priests,H3548 and ZerubbabelH2216 the sonH1121 of Shealtiel,H7597 and his brothers,H251 and builtH1129 the altarH4196 of the GodH430 of Israel,H3478 to offerH5927 burntH5930 offerings thereon,H5921 as it is writtenH3789 in the lawH8451 of MosesH4872 the manH376 of God.H430
And they setH3559 the altarH4196 on his bases;H4350 for fearH367 was on them because of the peopleH5971 of those countries:H776 and they offeredH5927 burntH5930 offerings thereonH5921 to the LORD,H3068 even burntH5930 offerings morningH1242 and evening.H6153
They keptH6213 also the feastH2282 of tabernacles,H5521 as it is written,H3789 and offered the dailyH3117 burntH5930 offerings by number,H4557 according to the custom,H4941 as the dutyH1697 of every dayH3117 required;H3117
And afterwardH310 H3651 offered the continualH8548 burntH5930 offering, both of the newH2320 moons,H2320 and of allH3605 the setH4150 feastsH4150 of the LORDH3068 that were consecrated,H6942 and of everyH3605 one that willinglyH5068 offeredH5068 a freewillH5071 offering to the LORD.H3068
From the firstH259 dayH3117 of the seventhH7637 monthH2320 beganH2490 they to offerH5927 burntH5930 offerings to the LORD.H3068 But the foundationH3245 of the templeH1964 of the LORDH3068 was not yet laid.
They gaveH5414 moneyH3701 also to the masons,H2672 and to the carpenters;H2796 and meat,H3978 and drink,H4960 and oil,H8081 to them of Zidon,H6722 and to them of Tyre,H6876 to bringH935 cedarH730 treesH6086 from LebanonH3844 to the seaH3220 of Joppa,H3305 according to the grantH7558 that they had of CyrusH3566 kingH4428 of Persia.H6539
Now in the secondH8145 yearH8141 of their comingH935 to the houseH1004 of GodH430 at Jerusalem,H3389 in the secondH8145 month,H2320 beganH2490 ZerubbabelH2216 the sonH1121 of Shealtiel,H7597 and JeshuaH3442 the sonH1121 of Jozadak,H3136 and the remnantH7605 of their brothersH251 the priestsH3548 and the Levites,H3881 and allH3605 they that were comeH935 out of the captivityH7628 to Jerusalem;H3389 and appointedH5975 the Levites,H3881 from twentyH6242 yearsH8141 oldH1121 and upward,H4605 to setH5329 forwardH5921 the workH4399 of the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
Then stoodH5975 JeshuaH3442 with his sonsH1121 and his brothers,H251 KadmielH6934 and his sons,H1121 the sonsH1121 of Judah,H3063 together,H259 to setH5329 forwardH5921 the workmenH6213 H4399 in the houseH1004 of God:H430 the sonsH1121 of Henadad,H2582 with their sonsH1121 and their brothersH251 the Levites.H3881
And when the buildersH1129 laid the foundationH3245 of the templeH1964 of the LORD,H3068 they setH5975 the priestsH3548 in their apparelH3847 with trumpets,H2689 and the LevitesH3881 the sonsH1121 of AsaphH623 with cymbals,H4700 to praiseH1984 the LORD,H3068 afterH5921 the ordinanceH3027 of DavidH1732 kingH4428 of Israel.H3478
And they sangH6030 together by course in praisingH1984 and giving thanksH3034 to the LORD;H3068 becauseH3588 he is good,H2896 for his mercyH2617 endures for everH5769 towardH5921 Israel.H3478 And allH3605 the peopleH5971 shoutedH7321 with a greatH1419 shout,H8643 when they praisedH1984 the LORD,H3068 becauseH5921 the foundationH3245 of the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 was laid.
But manyH7227 of the priestsH3548 and LevitesH3881 and chiefH7218 of the fathers,H1 who were ancientH2204 men, that had seenH7200 the firstH7223 house,H1004 when the foundationH3245 of thisH2088 houseH1004 was laid beforeH6440 their eyes,H5870 weptH1058 with a loudH1419 voice;H6963 and manyH7227 shoutedH8643 aloudH7311 H1419 for joy:H8057
So that the peopleH5971 could not discernH5234 the noiseH6963 of the shoutH8643 of joyH8057 from the noiseH6963 of the weepingH1065 of the people:H5971 for the peopleH5971 shoutedH7321 with a loudH1419 shout,H8643 and the noiseH6963 was heardH8085 afarH7350 off.
