Now when the seventh month came, and 1the sons of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered together as one man to Jerusalem.
Then 2Jeshua the son of Jozadak and his brothers the priests, and 3Zerubbabel the son 4of Shealtiel and his brothers arose and 5built the altar of the God of Israel to offer burnt offerings on it, 6as it is written in the law of Moses, the man of God.
So they set up the altar on its foundation, for 7they were terrified because of the peoples of the lands; and they 8offered burnt offerings on it to the LORD, burnt offerings morning and evening.
