ቂሮስ ምርኮኞቹ እንዲመለሱ ፈቀደ

1፥1-3 ተጓ ምብ – 2ዜና 36፥22-23

1ቂሮስ የፋርስ ንጉሥ በሆነ በመጀመሪያው ዓመት፣ እግዚአብሔር የቂሮስን መንፈስ አነሣሥቶ በመንግሥቱ ሁሉ ዐዋጅ እንዲያስነግርና ይህም በጽሑፍ እንዲሰፍር አደረገ፤ ይህ የሆነው በኤርምያስ አፍ የተነገረው የእግዚአብሔር ቃል ይፈጸም ዘንድ ነው።

2“የፋርስ ንጉሥ ቂሮስ የሚለው ይህ ነው፤ “ ‘የሰማይ አምላክ እግዚአብሔር የምድርን መንግሥታት ሁሉ ሰጥቶኛል፤ በይሁዳ ምድር በምትገኘው በኢየሩሳሌምም ለእርሱ ቤተ መቅደስ እንድሠራ አዞኛል። 3ከሕዝቡ መካከል በእናንተ ዘንድ የሚኖር ማናቸውም ሰው አምላኩ ከእርሱ ጋር ይሁን፤ በይሁዳ ወደምትገኘው ወደ ኢየሩሳሌም ይውጣና በዚያ ለሚኖረው አምላክ፣ ለእስራኤል አምላክ ለእግዚአብሔር ቤተ መቅደስ ይሥራ፤ 4ባሉበት ስፍራ የሚቀሩ በየትኛውም አገር የሚኖሩ ሰዎች ሁሉ በኢየሩሳሌም ለሚገኘው የእግዚአብሔር ቤተ መቅደስ ስጦታ እንዲሆን በበጎ ፈቃድ ከሚያቀርቡት መባ በተጨማሪ ብርና ወርቅ፣ ዕቃና እንስሳ በመስጠት ይርዷቸው።’ ”

5ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር መንፈሳቸውን ያነሣሣው የይሁዳና የብንያም ቤተ ሰብ አለቆች እንዲሁም ካህናቱና ሌዋውያኑ ሁሉ ለመሄድና በኢየሩሳሌም የሚገኘውን የእግዚአብሔርን ቤተ መቅደስ ለመሥራት ተዘጋጁ። 6ጎረቤቶቻቸውም ሁሉ በበጎ ፈቃድ ከሰጡት መባ በተጨማሪ ከብርና ከወርቅ የተሠሩ ዕቃዎችን፣ ቈሳቍስን፣ እንስሶችንና ሌሎች ጠቃሚ የሆኑ ስጦታዎችንም በመለገስ ረዷቸው። 7ከዚህም በላይ ንጉሡ ቂሮስ፣ ናቡከደነፆር ከኢየሩሳሌም ወስዶ በአማልክቱ1፥7 ወይም፣ በአምላኩ ቤተ ጣዖት ያኖራቸውን የእግዚአብሔርን ቤተ መቅደስ ንዋያተ ቅድሳት አወጣ። 8የፋርስ ንጉሥ ቂሮስ በግምጃ ቤቱ ኀላፊ በሚትሪዳጡ አማካይነት ንዋያተ ቅድሳቱ እንዲመጡና በይሁዳው ገዢ በሰሳብሳር ፊት እንዲቈጠሩ አደረገ።

9የዕቃው ዝርዝር ይህ ነበር፤

የወርቅ ሳሕን 30የብር ሳሕን 1,000ዝርግ የብር ሳሕን1፥9 በዕብራይስጡ የዚህ ቃል ትርጒም በትክክል አይታወቅም። 2910ጐድጓዳ የወርቅ ሳሕን 30ባለ ግጣም የብር ጐድጓዳ ሳሕን 410ሌሎች ቈሳቍስ 1,000

11ባጠቃላይ አምስት ሺህ አራት መቶ የወርቅና የብር ዕቃዎች ነበሩ። ሰሳብሳር ምርኮኞቹ ከባቢሎን ወደ ኢየሩሳሌም ሲመለሱ ይህን ሁሉ ዕቃ ይዞ ወጣ።

Ezra 1:1-11

1Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,1.1 made…: Heb. caused a voice to pass 2Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. 3Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he is the God,) which is in Jerusalem. 4And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.1.4 help…: Heb. lift him up

5¶ Then rose up the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites, with all them whose spirit God had raised, to go up to build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem. 6And all they that were about them strengthened their hands with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, and with beasts, and with precious things, beside all that was willingly offered.1.6 strengthened…: that is, helped them

7¶ Also Cyrus the king brought forth the vessels of the house of the LORD, which Nebuchadnezzar had brought forth out of Jerusalem, and had put them in the house of his gods; 8Even those did Cyrus king of Persia bring forth by the hand of Mithredath the treasurer, and numbered them unto Sheshbazzar, the prince of Judah. 9And this is the number of them: thirty chargers of gold, a thousand chargers of silver, nine and twenty knives, 10Thirty basons of gold, silver basons of a second sort four hundred and ten, and other vessels a thousand. 11All the vessels of gold and of silver were five thousand and four hundred. All these did Sheshbazzar bring up with them of the captivity that were brought up from Babylon unto Jerusalem.1.11 the captivity: Heb. the transportation
