8:5 And Ezra [H5830] opened [H6605] the book [H5612] in the sight [H5869] of all the people [H5971] ; (for he was above all the people [H5971] ;) and when he opened [H6605] it, all the people [H5971] stood up [H5975] :(sight: Heb. eyes)

8:6 And Ezra [H5830] blessed [H1288] the LORD [H3068] , the great [H1419] God [H430] .

8:8 So they read [H7121] in the book [H5612] in the law [H8451] of God [H430] distinctly [H6567] , and gave [H7760] the sense [H7922] , and caused [them] to understand [H995] the reading [H4744] .

8:9 And Nehemiah [H5166] , which [is] the Tirshatha [H8660] , and Ezra [H5830] the priest [H3548] the scribe [H5608] , and the Levites [H3881] that taught [H995] the people [H5971] , said [H559] unto all the people [H5971] , This day [H3117] [is] holy [H6918] unto the LORD [H3068] your God [H430] ; mourn [H56] not, nor weep [H1058] .

8:11 So the Levites [H3881] stilled [H2814] all the people [H5971] , saying [H559] , Hold your peace [H2013] , for the day [H3117] [is] holy [H6918] ; neither be ye grieved [H6087] .

8:12 And all the people [H5971] went their way [H3212] to eat [H398] , and to drink [H8354] , and to send [H7971] portions [H4490] , and to make [H6213] great [H1419] mirth [H8057] , because they had understood [H995] the words [H1697] that were declared [H3045] unto them.

8:13 And on the second [H8145] day [H3117] were gathered together [H622] the chief [H7218] of the fathers [H1] of all the people [H5971] , the priests [H3548] , and the Levites [H3881] , unto Ezra [H5830] the scribe [H5608] , even to understand [H7919] the words [H1697] of the law [H8451] .(to understand: or, that they might instruct in the words of the law)

8:15 And that they should publish [H8085] and proclaim [H5674] [H6963] in all their cities [H5892] , and in Jerusalem [H3389] , saying [H559] , Go forth [H3318] unto the mount [H2022] , and fetch [H935] olive [H2132] branches [H5929] , and pine [H8081] branches [H6086] [H5929] , and myrtle [H1918] branches [H5929] , and palm [H8558] branches [H5929] , and branches [H5929] of thick [H5687] trees [H6086] , to make [H6213] booths [H5521] , as [it is] written [H3789] .

8:16 So the people [H5971] went forth [H3318] , and brought [H935] [them], and made [H6213] themselves booths [H5521] , every one [H376] upon the roof of his house [H1406] , and in their courts [H2691] , and in the courts [H2691] of the house [H1004] of God [H430] , and in the street [H7339] of the water [H4325] gate [H8179] , and in the street [H7339] of the gate [H8179] of Ephraim [H669] .

8:17 And all the congregation [H6951] of them that were come again [H7725] out of the captivity [H7628] made [H6213] booths [H5521] , and sat [H3427] under the booths [H5521] : for since the days [H3117] of Jeshua [H3442] the son [H1121] of Nun [H5126] unto that day [H3117] had not the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] done so [H6213] . And there was very [H3966] great [H1419] gladness [H8057] .

8:18 Also day [H3117] by day [H3117] , from the first [H7223] day [H3117] unto the last [H314] day [H3117] , he read [H7121] in the book [H5612] of the law [H8451] of God [H430] . And they kept [H6213] the feast [H2282] seven [H7651] days [H3117] ; and on the eighth [H8066] day [H3117] [was] a solemn assembly [H6116] , according unto the manner [H4941] .(a solemn: Heb. a restraint)
