Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO EZRA 3\\

This chapter relates how that the people of Israel returned from
captivity, gathered to Jerusalem, and set up the altar, where
sacrifices were offered, \\#Ezr 3:1-3\\, and kept the feast of
tabernacles, and offered the sacrifices of that, besides the daily
sacrifice, and of other festivals; and contributed to the workmen that
prepared for the building of the temple, \\#Ezr 3:4-7\\ and began it by
laying the foundation of it; which to some was matter of joy, to others
of grief, on different accounts, \\#Ezr 3:8-13\\.
