Cyrus’s Proclamation

1Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he sent a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying:

“Thus says Cyrus king of Persia, ‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and He has appointed me to build Him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all His people, may his God be with him! Let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah and rebuild the house of the Lord, the God of Israel; He is the God who is in Jerusalem. Every survivor, at whatever place he may [a]live, let the men of [b]that place support him with silver and gold, with goods and cattle, together with a freewill offering for the house of God which is in Jerusalem.’”

Then the heads of fathers’ households of Judah and Benjamin and the priests and the Levites arose, even everyone whose spirit God had stirred to go up and rebuild the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem. All those about them [c]encouraged them with articles of silver, with gold, with goods, with cattle and with valuables, aside from all that was given as a freewill offering. Also King Cyrus brought out the articles of the house of the Lord, which Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from Jerusalem and put in the house of his gods; and Cyrus, king of Persia, had them brought out by the hand of Mithredath the treasurer, and he counted them out to Sheshbazzar, the prince of Judah. Now this was their number: 30 gold dishes, 1,000 silver dishes, 29 [d]duplicates; 10 30 gold bowls, 410 silver bowls of a second kind and 1,000 other articles. 11 All the articles of gold and silver numbered 5,400. Sheshbazzar brought them all up with the exiles who went up from Babylon to Jerusalem.

1Awo mu mwaka ogw’olubereberye ogw’obufuzi bwa Kuulo kabaka wa Buperusi, ekigambo Mukama kye yayogerera mu Yeremiya ne kituukirira, Mukama n’akoma ku mutima gwa Kuulo kabaka w’e Buperusi okulangirira mu bwakabaka bwe bwonna, n’okukiteeka mu buwandiike nti,

“Bw’ati bw’ayogera Kuulo[a] kabaka w’e Buperusi nti,

“ ‘Obwakabaka bwonna obw’omu nsi Mukama Katonda w’eggulu abumpadde, era annonze okumuzimbira yeekaalu e Yerusaalemi mu Yuda. Omuntu yenna mu mmwe abantu be, Katonda we abeere naye, agende e Yerusaalemi mu Yuda addaabirize yeekaalu ya Mukama, Katonda wa Isirayiri, Katonda ali mu Yerusaalemi. Na buli Muyisirayiri eyasigalawo gy’ali, abantu abo baabeeramu, banaamuwa ffeeza ne zaabu, n’ebintu n’ebisolo ebirundibwa, obutasaako ebiweebwayo bye bawaayo ku bwabwe ebya yeekaalu ya Katonda eri mu Yerusaalemi.’ ”

Awo abakulu b’ennyumba za Yuda ne Benyamini, ne bakabona, n’Abaleevi, na buli muntu Katonda gwe yakubiriza, ne beeteekateeka okwambuka okugenda okuddaabiriza yeekaalu ya Mukama eri mu Yerusaalemi[b]. Baliraanwa baabwe bonna ne babawa ebintu ebya ffeeza ne zaabu, n’ebintu ebirala n’ebisolo ebirundibwa, n’ebirabo eby’omuwendo omungi, okwo nga kwe kuli ebiweebwayo bye baawaayo nga beeyagalidde. Ebintu ebyali mu yeekaalu ya Mukama, Nebukadduneeza bye yanyaga mu Yerusaalemi n’abiteeka mu ssabo lya bakatonda be, Kabaka Kuulo, n’abiggyayo. Kuulo kabaka w’e Buperusi n’abikwasa Misuledasi omuwanika, eyabikwasa Sesubazzali omulangira wa Yuda.

Guno gwe gwali omuwendo gwabyo:

Esowaani eza zaabu amakumi asatu30,
Esowaani eza ffeeza lukumi1,000,
Ebiso ebya ffeeza amakumi abiri mu mwenda29,
10 Ebibya ebya zaabu amakumi asatu30,
n’ebibya ebya ffeeza ebigenderako ebikumi bina mu kumi410,
n’ebintu ebirala lukumi1,000.

11 Byonna awamu ebintu ebya zaabu ne ffeeza byali enkumi ttaano mu ebikumi bina (5,400).

Sesubazzali n’agenda nabyo byonna e Yerusaalemi okuva e Babulooni mu buwaŋŋanguse.
