Ezra 3:8-10

Context
3:8 In the second year after they had come to the temple of God in Jerusalem, 1  in the second month, Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak initiated the work, 2  along with the rest of their associates, 3  the priests and the Levites, and all those who were coming to Jerusalem from the exile. They appointed 4  the Levites who were at least twenty years old 5  to take charge of the work on the Lord’s temple. 3:9 So Jeshua appointed both his sons and his relatives, 6  Kadmiel and his sons (the sons of Yehudah 7 ), to take charge of the workers in the temple of God, along with the sons of Henadad, their sons, and their relatives 8  the Levites. 3:10 When the builders established the Lord’s temple, the priests, ceremonially attired and with their clarions, 9  and the Levites (the sons of Asaph) with their cymbals, stood to praise the Lord according to the instructions left by 10  King David of Israel. 11
