Blessed be the Lord God of our fathers
This is Ezra's thanksgiving to God for the above decree:
which hath put such a thing as this in the king's heart;
which he rightly took to be of God, who wrought in him to will and to do:
to beautify the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem;
to provide for the ornamenting of it, for vessels in it, as well as for sacrifices; for as for the building of it, that was finished.
