Ezra 7:13-17

Context
7:13 I have now issued a decree 1  that anyone in my kingdom from the people of Israel – even the priests and Levites – who wishes to do so may go up with you to Jerusalem. 2  7:14 You are authorized 3  by the king and his seven advisers to inquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of your God which is in your possession, 4  7:15 and to bring silver and gold which the king and his advisers have freely contributed to the God of Israel, who resides in Jerusalem, 7:16 along with all the silver and gold that you may collect 5  throughout all the province of Babylon and the contributions of the people and the priests for the temple of their God which is in Jerusalem. 7:17 With this money you should be sure to purchase bulls, rams, and lambs, along with the appropriate 6  meal offerings and libations. You should bring them to the altar of the temple of your God which is in Jerusalem.
