- 8 Now in the second year of their coming to the house of God at Jerusalem in the second month, Zerubbabel R51 the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak and the rest of their brothers the priests and the Levites, and all who came from the captivity to Jerusalem, began the work and appointed R52 the Levites from twenty years and older to oversee the work of the house of the LORD. 9 Then Jeshua R53 with his sons and brothers stood united with Kadmiel and his sons, the sons of Judah F38 and the sons of Henadad with their sons and brothers the Levites, to oversee the workmen in the temple of God. 10 Now when the builders had laid R54 the foundation of the temple of the LORD, the F39 priests stood in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with cymbals, to praise the LORD according R55 to the directions F40 of King David of Israel. 11 They R56 sang, praising and giving thanks to the LORD, saying, "For R57 He is good, for His lovingkindness is upon Israel forever." And all the people shouted with a great shout when they praised the LORD because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid. 12 Yet many of the priests and Levites and heads of fathers' households, the R58 old men who had seen the first temple, F41 wept with a loud voice when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, while many shouted aloud for joy, 13 so that the people could not distinguish the sound of the shout of joy from the sound of the weeping of the people, for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the sound was heard far away.
