Ezra 4:12-24

Be it
<01934> (8748)
known
<03046> (8752)
unto the king
<04430>_,
that the Jews
<03062>
which
<01768>
came up
<05559> (8760)
from
<04481>
thee
<03890>
to us
<05922>
are come
<0858> (8754)
unto Jerusalem
<03390>_,
building
<01124> (8750)
the rebellious
<04779>
and the bad
<0873>
city
<07149>_,
and have set up
<03635> (8806) (8675) <03635> (8720)
the walls
<07792>
[thereof], and joined
<02338> (8681)
the foundations
<0787>_.
{set up: or, finished} {joined: Chaldee, sewed together}
Be it known
<03046> (8752) <01934> (8748)
now
<03705>
unto the king
<04430>_,
that, if
<02006>
this
<01791>
city
<07149>
be builded
<01124> (8731)_,
and the walls
<07792>
set up
<03635> (8720)
[again, then] will they not
<03809>
pay
<05415> (8748)
toll
<04061>_,
tribute
<01093>_,
and custom
<01983>_,
and [so] thou shalt endamage
<05142> (8681)
the revenue
<0674>
of the kings
<04430>_.
{pay: Chaldee, give} {revenue: or, strength}
Now
<03705>
because
<06903> <03606>
we have
<01768>
maintenance
<04415> (8754) <04416>
from [the king's] palace
<01965>_,
and it was not
<03809>
meet
<0749> (8750)
for us to see
<02370> (8749)
the king's
<04430>
dishonour
<06173>_,
therefore
<05922> <01836>
have we sent
<07972> (8754)
and certified
<03046> (8684)
the king
<04430>_;
{we have...: Chaldee, we are salted with the salt of the palace}
That search
<01240> (8741)
may be made in the book
<05609>
of the records
<01799>
of thy fathers
<02>_:
so shalt thou find
<07912> (8681)
in the book
<05609>
of the records
<01799>_,
and know
<03046> (8748)
that this
<01791>
city
<07149>
[is] a rebellious
<04779>
city
<07149>_,
and hurtful
<05142> (8683)
unto kings
<04430>
and provinces
<04083>_,
and that they have moved
<05648> (8751)
sedition
<0849>
within the same
<01459>
of
<04481>
old
<05957>
time
<03118>_:
for
<05922>
which
<01836>
cause was this
<01791>
city
<07149>
destroyed
<02718> (8717)_.
{moved: Chaldee, made} {within...: Chaldee, in the midst thereof}
We
<0586>
certify
<03046> (8683)
the king
<04430>
that, if
<02006>
this
<01791>
city
<07149>
be builded
<01124> (8731)
[again], and the walls
<07792>
thereof set up
<03635> (8720)_,
by this
<01836>
means
<06903>
thou shalt have
<0383>
no
<03809>
portion
<02508>
on this side
<05675>
the river
<05103>_.
[Then] sent
<07972> (8754)
the king
<04430>
an answer
<06600>
unto
<05922>
Rehum
<07348>
the chancellor
<01169> <02942>_,
and [to] Shimshai
<08124>
the scribe
<05613>_,
and [to] the rest
<07606>
of their companions
<03675>
that dwell
<03488> (8750)
in Samaria
<08115>_,
and [unto] the rest
<07606>
beyond
<05675>
the river
<05103>_,
Peace
<08001>_,
and at such a time
<03706>_.
{companions: Chaldee, societies}
The letter
<05407>
which ye sent
<07972> (8754)
unto us
<05922>
hath been plainly
<06568> (8744)
read
<07123> (8752)
before
<06925>
me.
And I
<04481>
commanded
<07761> (8752) <02942>_,
and search
<01240> (8745)
hath been made, and it is found
<07912> (8684)
that this
<01791>
city
<07149>
of
<04481>
old
<05957>
time
<03118>
hath made insurrection
<05376> (8723)
against
<05922>
kings
<04430>_,
and [that] rebellion
<04776>
and sedition
<0849>
have been made
<05648> (8727)
therein. {I commanded: Chaldee, by me a decree is set} {made insurrection: Chaldee, lifted up itself}
There have been
<01934> (8754)
mighty
<08624>
kings
<04430>
also over
<05922>
Jerusalem
<03390>_,
which have ruled
<07990>
over all
<03606>
[countries] beyond
<05675>
the river
<05103>_;
and toll
<04061>_,
tribute
<01093>_,
and custom
<01983>_,
was paid
<03052> (8727)
unto them.
Give
<07761> (8747)
ye now
<03705>
commandment
<02942>
to cause
<0989> (0)
these
<0479>
men
<01400>
to cease
<0989> (8749)_,
and that this
<01791>
city
<07149>
be not
<03809>
builded
<01124> (8731)_,
until
<05705>
[another] commandment
<02941>
shall be given
<07761> (8725)
from me
<04481>_.
{Give...: Chaldee, Make a decree}
Take heed
<01934> (8747) <02095> (8750)
now that ye fail
<07960>
not to do
<05922> <05648> (8749)
this
<01836>_:
why
<04101>
should damage
<02257>
grow
<07680> (8748)
to the hurt
<05142> (8682)
of the kings
<04430>_?
Now
<0116>
when
<04481> <01768>
the copy
<06573>
of king
<04430>
Artaxerxes
<0783>_'
letter
<05407>
[was] read
<07123> (8752)
before
<06925>
Rehum
<07348>_,
and Shimshai
<08124>
the scribe
<05613>_,
and their companions
<03675>_,
they went up
<0236> (8754)
in haste
<0924>
to Jerusalem
<03390>
unto
<05922>
the Jews
<03062>_,
and made them
<01994>
to cease
<0989> (8754)
by force
<0153>
and power
<02429>_.
{by force...: Chaldee, by arm and power}
Then
<0116>
ceased
<0989> (8754)
the work
<05673>
of the house
<01005>
of God
<0426>
which [is] at Jerusalem
<03390>_.
So it ceased
<01934> (8754) <0989> (8750)
unto
<05705>
the second
<08648>
year
<08140>
of the reign
<04437>
of Darius
<01868>
king
<04430>
of Persia
<06540>_.
