Then Darius the king gave an order and a search was made in the house of the records, where the things of value were stored up in Babylon.
And at Achmetha, in the great house of the king in the land of Media, they came across a roll, in which this statement was put on record:
In the first year of Cyrus the king, Cyrus the king made an order: In connection with the house of God at Jerusalem, let the house be put up, the place where they make offerings, and let the earth for the bases be put in place; let it be sixty cubits high and sixty cubits wide;
With three lines of great stones and one line of new wood supports; and let the necessary money be given out of the king's store-house;
And let the gold and silver vessels from the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took from the Temple at Jerusalem to Babylon, be given back and taken again to the Temple at Jerusalem, every one in its place, and put them in the house of God.
