1 And the seventh month came on, and the children of Israel [were] in their cities, and the people assembled as one man at Jerusalem. 2 Then stood up Jesus the [son] of Josedec, and his brethren the priests, and Zorobabel the [son] of Salathiel, and his brethren, and they built the altar of the God of Israel, to offer upon it whole-burnt-offerings, according to the things that were written in the law of Moses the man of God. 3 And they set up the altar on its place, for there was a terror upon them because of the people of the lands: and the whole-burnt-offerings was offered up upon it to the Lord morning and evening. 4 And they kept the feast of tabernacles, according to that which was written, and [offered] whole-burnt-offerings daily in number according to the ordinance, the exact daily rate. 5 And after this the perpetual whole-burnt-offering, and [offering] for the season of new moon, and for all the hallowed feasts to the Lord, and for every one that offered a free-will-offering to the Lord. 6 On the first day of the seventh month they began to offer whole-burnt-offerings to the Lord: but the foundation of the house of the Lord was not laid. 7 And they gave money to the stone-hewers and carpenters, and meat and drink, and oil, to the Sidonians, and Tyrians, to bring cedar trees from Libanus to the sea of Joppa, according to the grant of Cyrus king of the Persians to them. 8 And in the second year of their coming to the house of God in Jerusalem, in the second month, began Zorobabel the [son] of Salathiel, and Jesus the [son] of Josedec, and the rest of their brethren the priests ad the Levites, and all who came from the captivity to Jerusalem, and they appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward, over the workmen in the house of the Lord. 9 And Jesus and his sons and his brethren stood, Cadmiel and his sons the sons of Juda, over them that wrought the works in the house of God: the sons of Enadad, their sons and their brethren the Levites. 10 And they laid a foundation for building the house of the Lord: and the priests in their robes stood with trumpets and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals, to praise the Lord, according to the order of David king of Israel. 11 And they answered [each other] with praise and thanksgiving to the Lord, [saying], For [it is] good, for his mercy to Israel [endures] for ever. And all the people shouted with a loud voice to praise the Lord at the laying the foundation of the house of the Lord. 12 But many of the priests and the Levites, and the elder men, heads of families, who had seen the former house on its foundation, and [who saw] this house with their eyes, wept with a loud voice: but the multitude shouted with joy to raise a song. 13 And the people did not distinguish the voice of the glad shout from the voice of the weeping of the people: for the people shouted with a loud voice, and the voice was heard even from afar off. ΚΑΙ ἔφθασεν ὁ μὴν ὁ ἕβδομος -καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν πόλεσιν αὐτῶν- καὶ συνήχθη ὁ λαὸς ὡς ἀνὴρ εἷς εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 2 καὶ ἀνέστη ᾿Ιησοῦς ὁ τοῦ ᾿Ιωσεδὲκ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ἱερεῖς καὶ Ζοροβάβελ ὁ τοῦ Σαλαθιὴλ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν τὸ θυσιαστήριον Θεοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ τοῦ ἀνενέγκαι ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸ ὁλοκαυτώσεις κατὰ τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐν νόμῳ Μωυσῆ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ. 3 καὶ ἡτοίμασαν τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐπὶ τὴν ἑτοιμασίαν αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐν καταπλήξει ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τῶν λαῶν τῶν γαιῶν, καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸ ὁλοκαύτωσις τῷ Κυρίῳ τὸ πρωΐ καὶ εἰς ἑσπέραν. 4 καὶ ἐποίησαν τὴν ἑορτὴν τῶν σκηνῶν κατὰ τὸ γεγραμμένον καὶ ὁλοκαυτώσεις ἡμέραν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἐν ἀριθμῷ ὡς ἡ κρίσις, λόγον ἡμέρας ἐν ἡμέρᾳ αὐτοῦ, 5 καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο ὁλοκαυτώσεις ἐνδελεχισμοῦ καὶ εἰς τὰς νουμηνίας καὶ εἰς πάσας ἑορτὰς τῷ Κυρίῳ τὰς ἡγιασμένας καὶ παντὶ ἑκουσιαζομένῳ ἑκούσιον τῷ Κυρίῳ. 6 ἐν ἡμέρᾳ μιᾷ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ ἑβδόμου ἤρξαντο ἀναφέρειν ὁλοκαυτώσεις τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ ὁ οἶκος τοῦ Κυρίου οὐκ ἐθεμελιώθη. 7 καὶ ἔδωκαν ἀργύριον τοῖς λατόμοις καὶ τοῖς τέκτοσι καὶ βρώματα καὶ ποτὰ καὶ ἔλαιον τοῖς Σιδωνίοις καὶ τοῖς Τυρίοις ἐνέγκαι ξύλα κέδρινα ἀπὸ τοῦ Λιβάνου πρὸς θάλασσαν ᾿Ιόππης κατ᾿ ἐπιχώρησιν Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς. 8 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ δευτέρῳ τοῦ ἐλθεῖν αὐτοὺς εἰς οἶκον τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ἐν μηνὶ τῷ δευτέρῳ, ἤρξατο Ζοροβάβελ ὁ τοῦ Σαλαθιὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιησοῦς ὁ τοῦ ᾿Ιωσεδὲκ καὶ οἱ κατάλοιποι τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευῖται καὶ πάντες οἱ ἐρχόμενοι ἀπὸ τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἔστησαν τοὺς Λευίτας ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω ἐπὶ τοὺς ποιοῦντας τὰ ἔργα ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου. 9 καὶ ἔστη ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ, Καδμιὴλ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιούδα, ἐπὶ τοὺς ποιοῦντας τὰ ἔργα ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ Θεοῦ, υἱοὶ ᾿Ηναδάδ, υἱοὶ αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτῶν οἱ Λευῖται. 10 καὶ ἐθεμελίωσαν τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου, καὶ ἔστησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐστολισμένοι ἐν σάλπιγξι καὶ οἱ Λευῖται υἱοὶ ᾿Ασὰφ ἐν κυμβάλοις τοῦ αἰνεῖν τὸν Κύριον ἐπὶ χεῖρας Δαυὶδ βασιλέως ᾿Ισραήλ. 11 καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν ἐν αἴνῳ καὶ ἀνθομολογήσει τῷ Κυρίῳ, ὅτι ἀγαθόν, ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ. καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐσήμαινε φωνῇ μεγάλῃ αἰνεῖν τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐπὶ τῇ θεμελιώσει τοῦ οἴκου Κυρίου. 12 καὶ πολλοὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν καὶ ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν οἱ πρεσβύτεροι, οἳ εἴδοσαν τὸν οἶκον τὸν πρῶτον ἐν θεμελιώσει αὐτοῦ, καὶ τοῦτον τὸν οἶκον ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτῶν, ἔκλαιον φωνῇ μεγάλῃ· καὶ ὁ ὄχλος ἐν σημασίᾳ μετ᾿ εὐφροσύνης τοῦ ὑψῶσαι ᾠδήν· 13 καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ λαὸς ἐπιγινώσκων φωνὴν σημασίας τῆς εὐφροσύνης ἀπὸ τῆς φωνῆς τοῦ κλαυθμοῦ τοῦ λαοῦ, ὅτι ὁ λαὸς ἐκραύγασε φωνῇ μεγάλῃ, καὶ ἡ φωνὴ ἠκούετο ἕως ἀπὸ μακρόθεν.
