Context
8:29 Be careful with them and protect them, until you weigh them out before the leading priests and the Levites and the family leaders of Israel in Jerusalem, 1  in the storerooms of the temple of the Lord.”

8:30 Then the priests and the Levites took charge of 2  the silver, the gold, and the vessels that had been weighed out, to transport them to Jerusalem to the temple of our God.

8:31 On the twelfth day of the first month we began traveling from the Ahava Canal to go to Jerusalem. The hand of our God was on us, and he delivered us from our enemy and from bandits 3  along the way. 8:32 So we came to Jerusalem, and we stayed there for three days.
