Ezra 8:36; Ezra 9:2; Ezra 9:12; Ezra 10:44
And they delivered the king's commissions unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors on this side the river: and they furthered the people, and the house of God.
For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.
Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong , and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.
All these had taken strange wives: and some of them had wives by whom they had children.
