11 Now this is the copy of the decree which King Artaxerxes gave to Ezra the priest, the scribe, learned F82 in the words of the commandments of the LORD and His statutes to Israel: 12 "Artaxerxes, F83 king R136 of kings, to Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace. And now 13 I R137 have issued a decree that any of the people of Israel and their priests and the Levites in my kingdom who are willing to go to Jerusalem, may go with you. 14 "Forasmuch as you are sent by F84 the king and his seven R138 counselors to inquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem according to the law of your God which is in your hand, 15 and to bring the silver and gold, which the king and his counselors have freely offered to the God of Israel, whose R139 dwelling is in Jerusalem, 16 with all R140 the silver and gold which you find in the whole province of Babylon, along with R141 the freewill offering of the people and of the priests, who offered R142 willingly for the house of their God which is in Jerusalem; 17 with this money, therefore, you shall diligently buy bulls, rams and lambs, with R143 their grain offerings and their drink offerings and offer R144 them on the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem. 18 "Whatever seems good to you and to your brothers to do with the rest of the silver and gold, you may do according to the will of your God. 19 "Also the utensils which are given to you for the service of the house of your God, deliver in full before the God of Jerusalem. 20 "The rest of the needs for the house of your God, for which you may have occasion to provide, provide R145 for it from the royal treasury. 21 "I, even I, King Artaxerxes, issue a decree to all the treasurers who are in the provinces beyond the River, F85 that whatever Ezra the priest, the R146 scribe of the law of the God of heaven, may require of you, it shall be done diligently, 22 even up to 100 talents of silver, 100 kors F86 of wheat, 100 baths of wine, 100 baths of oil, and salt as F87 needed. 23 "Whatever is commanded F88 by the God of heaven, let it be done with zeal for the house of the God of heaven, so R147 that there will not be wrath against the kingdom of the king and his sons. 24 "We also inform you that it R148 is not allowed to impose F89 tax, tribute or toll on R149 any of the priests, Levites, singers, doorkeepers, Nethinim or servants of this house of God. 25 "You, Ezra, according to the wisdom of your God which is in your hand, appoint R150 magistrates and judges that they may judge all the people who are in the province beyond the River, even all those who know the laws of your God; and you may teach R151 anyone who is ignorant of them. 26 "Whoever R152 will not observe the law of your God and the law of the king, let judgment be executed upon him strictly, whether for death or for banishment F90 or for confiscation of goods or for imprisonment."
