7:13 I [H4481] make [H7761] a decree [H2942] , that all [H3606] they of [H4481] the people [H5972] of Israel [H3479] , and [of] his priests [H3549] and Levites [H3879] , in my realm [H4437] , which are minded of their own freewill [H5069] to go up [H1946] to Jerusalem [H3390] , go [H1946] with thee [H5974] .

7:16 And all [H3606] the silver [H3702] and gold [H1722] that thou canst find [H7912] in all [H3606] the province [H4083] of Babylon [H895] , with [H5974] the freewill offering [H5069] of the people [H5972] , and of the priests [H3549] , offering willingly [H5069] for the house [H1005] of their God [H426] which [is] in Jerusalem [H3390] :

7:20 And whatsoever more [H7606] shall be needful [H2819] for the house [H1005] of thy God [H426] , which thou shalt have occasion [H5308] to bestow [H5415] , bestow [H5415] [it] out of [H4481] the king's [H4430] treasure [H1596] house [H1005] .

7:21 And I [H4481] , [even] I [H576] Artaxerxes [H783] the king [H4430] , do make [H7761] a decree [H2942] to all [H3606] the treasurers [H1490] which [are] beyond [H5675] the river [H5103] , that whatsoever Ezra [H5831] the priest [H3549] , the scribe [H5613] of the law [H1882] of the God [H426] of heaven [H8065] , shall require [H7593] of you, it be done [H5648] speedily [H629] ,

7:22 Unto [H5705] an hundred [H3969] talents [H3604] of silver [H3702] , and to an hundred [H3969] measures [H3734] of wheat [H2591] , and to an hundred [H3969] baths [H1325] of wine [H2562] , and to an hundred [H3969] baths [H1325] of oil [H4887] , and salt [H4416] without [H3809] prescribing [H3792] [how much].(measures: Chaldee, cors)

7:23 Whatsoever [H3606] is commanded by [H2941] [H4481] the God [H426] of heaven [H8065] , let it be diligently [H149] done [H5648] for the house [H1005] of the God [H426] of heaven [H8065] : for [H1768] why [H4101] should there be [H1934] wrath [H7109] against [H5922] the realm [H4437] of the king [H4430] and his sons [H1123] ?(Whatsoever: Chaldee, Whatsoever is of the decree)

7:24 Also we certify [H3046] you, that touching any [H3606] of the priests [H3549] and Levites [H3879] , singers [H2171] , porters [H8652] , Nethinims [H5412] , or ministers [H6399] of this [H1836] house [H1005] of God [H426] , it shall not [H3809] be lawful [H7990] to impose [H7412] toll [H4061] , tribute [H1093] , or custom [H1983] , upon [H5922] them.

7:25 And thou [H607] , Ezra [H5831] , after the wisdom [H2452] of thy God [H426] , that [is] in thine hand [H3028] , set [H4483] magistrates [H8200] and judges [H1782] , which may judge [H1934] [H1778] all [H3606] the people [H5972] that [are] beyond [H5675] the river [H5103] , all [H3606] such as know [H3046] the laws [H1882] of thy God [H426] ; and teach [H3046] ye them that know [H3046] [them] not [H3809] .

7:26 And whosoever [H3606] will not [H3809] do [H1934] [H5648] the law [H1882] of thy God [H426] , and the law [H1882] of the king [H4430] , let judgment [H1780] be [H1934] executed [H5648] speedily [H629] upon him [H4481] , whether [H2006] [it be] unto death [H4193] , or [H2006] to banishment [H8332] , or [H2006] to confiscation [H6065] of goods [H5232] , or to imprisonment [H613] .(to banishment: Chaldee, to rooting out)

7:27 Blessed [H1288] [be] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of our fathers [H1] , which hath put [H5414] [such a thing] as this in the king's [H4428] heart [H3820] , to beautify [H6286] the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] which [is] in Jerusalem [H3389] :

7:28 And hath extended [H5186] mercy [H2617] unto me before [H6440] the king [H4428] , and his counsellors [H3289] , and before all the king's [H4428] mighty [H1368] princes [H8269] . And I was strengthened [H2388] as the hand [H3027] of the LORD [H3068] my God [H430] [was] upon me, and I gathered together [H6908] out of Israel [H3478] chief men [H7218] to go up [H5927] with me.
