Let the work

Moreover I

<05313>
be
<01934> (8748)
given
<03052> (8727)
unto these
<0479>
men
<01400>_,
that they be not
<03809>
hindered
<0989> (8749)_.
{I make...: Chaldee, by me a decree is made} {hindered: Chaldee, made to cease}
And that which
<04101>

of the king
<04430>_,

{of sweet...: Chaldee, of rest}
Also
<04481>
I have made
<07761> (8752)
a decree
<02942>_,
that whosoever
<03606> <0606>

word
<06600>_,
let timber

let him be hanged

thereon
<05922>_;
and let his house
<01005>
be made
<05648> (8725)
a dunghill
<05122>

{let him...: Chaldee, let him be destroyed}
And the God
<0426>
that hath caused his name
<08036>
to dwell
<07932> (8745)
there
<08536>
destroy
<04049> (8741)
all
<03606>
kings
<04430>
and people
<05972>_,
that shall put
<07972> (8748)
to their hand
<03028>
to alter
<08133> (8682)
[and] to destroy
<02255> (8742)
this
<01791>
house
<01005>
of God
<0426>
which [is] at Jerusalem
<03390>_.
I
<0576>
Darius
<01868>
have made
<07761> (8754)
a decree
<02942>_;
let it be done
<05648> (8725)

of the Jews
<03062>
builded
<01124> (8750)_,
and they prospered
<06744> (8683)
through the prophesying
<05017>
of Haggai
<02292>
the prophet
<05029>
and Zechariah
