- 5 Then the heads of fathers' households of Judah and Benjamin and the priests and the Levites arose, even R5 everyone whose spirit God had stirred to go up and rebuild the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem. 6 All those about them encouraged R6 F3 them with articles of silver, with gold, with goods, with cattle and with valuables, aside from all that was given as a freewill offering. 7 Also R7 King Cyrus brought out the articles of the house of the LORD, which R8 Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from Jerusalem and put in the house of his gods; 8 and Cyrus, king of Persia, had them brought out by the hand of Mithredath the treasurer, and he counted them out to Sheshbazzar, R9 the prince of Judah. 9 Now this was their number: 30 gold R10 dishes, 1,000 silver dishes, 29 duplicates; F4 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.
