The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
THE FIRST BOOK OF ESDRAS
This Book taketh its name from the writer: who was a holy priest, and
doctor of the law. He is called by the Hebrews, Ezra.
1 Esdras Chapter 1
Cyrus king of Persia releaseth God's people from their captivity, with
license to return and build the temple in Jerusalem: and restoreth the
holy vessels which Nabuchodonosor had taken from thence.
1:1. In the first year of Cyrus king of the Persians, that the word of
the Lord by the mouth of Jeremias might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred
up the spirit of Cyrus king of the Persians: and he made a proclamation
throughout all his kingdom, and in writing also, saying:
1:2. Thus saith Cyrus king of the Persians: The Lord the God of heaven
hath given to me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he hath charged me
to build him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judea.
1:3. Who is there among you of all his people? His God be with him. Let
him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judea, and build the house of the
Lord the God of Israel: he is the God that is in Jerusalem.
1:4. And let all the rest in all places wheresoever they dwell, help him
every man from his place, with silver and gold, and goods, and cattle,
besides that which they offer freely to the temple of God, which is in
1:5. Then rose up the chief of the fathers of Juda and Benjamin, and the
priests, and Levites, and every one whose spirit God had raised up, to
go up to build the temple of the Lord, which was in Jerusalem.
1:6. And all they that were round about, helped their hands with vessels
of silver, and gold, with goods, and with beasts, and with furniture,
besides what they had offered on their own accord.
1:7. And king Cyrus brought forth vessels of the temple of the Lord,
which Nabuchodonosor had taken from Jerusalem, and had put them in the
temple of his god.
1:8. Now Cyrus king of Persia brought them forth by the hand of
Mithridates the son of Gazabar, and numbered them to Sassabasar the
prince of Juda.
1:9. And this is the number of them: thirty bowls of gold, a thousand
bowls of silver, nine and twenty knives, thirty cups of gold,
1:10. Silver cups of a second sort, four hundred and ten: other vessels
1:11. All the vessels of gold and silver, five thousand four hundred:
all these Sassabasar brought with them that came up from the captivity
of Babylon to Jerusalem.
1 Esdras Chapter 2
The number of them that returned to Judea: their oblations.
2:1. Now these are the children of the province, that went out of the
captivity, which Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon had carried away to
Babylon, and who returned to Jerusalem and Juda, every man to his city.
2:2. Who came with Zorobabel, Josue, Nehemia, Saraia, Rahelaia,
Mardochai, Belsan, Mesphar, Beguai, Rehum, Baana. The number of the men
of the people of Israel:
2:3. The children of Pharos two thousand one hundred seventy-two.
2:4. The children of Sephatia, three hundred seventy-two.
