Ezra 7:2-7

Context
7:2 who was the son of Shallum, who was the son of Zadok, who was the son of Ahitub, 7:3 who was the son of Amariah, who was the son of Azariah, who was the son of Meraioth, 7:4 who was the son of Zerahiah, who was the son of Uzzi, who was the son of Bukki, 7:5 who was the son of Abishua, who was the son of Phinehas, who was the son of Eleazar, who was the son of Aaron the chief priest. 7:6 This Ezra is the one who came up from Babylon. He was a scribe who was skilled in the law of Moses which the Lord God of Israel had given. The king supplied him with everything he requested, for the hand of the Lord his God was on him. 7:7 In the seventh year of King Artaxerxes, Ezra brought 1  up to Jerusalem 2  some of the Israelites and some of the priests, the Levites, the attendants, the gatekeepers, and the temple servants.

1 tc The translation reads the Hiphil singular וַיַּעֲל (vayyaal, “he [Ezra] brought up”) rather than the Qal plural וַיַּעַלוּ (vayyaalu, “they came up”) of the MT.

tn Heb “he brought”; the referent (Ezra) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
