Ezra 6:1-5

Darius responds

1 Then King Darius made a decree, and they searched the archives where the documents were stored in Babylon.
2 But a scroll was found in Ecbatana, the capital of the province of Media, on which was written the following: A memorandum—
3 In the first year of his rule, King Cyrus made a decree: Concerning God's house in Jerusalem: Let the house at the place where they offered sacrifices be rebuilt and let its foundations be retained. Its height will be ninety feet and its width ninety feet,
4 with three layers of dressed stones and one layer of timber. The cost will be paid from the royal treasury.
5 In addition, the gold and silver equipment from God's house, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple in Jerusalem and brought to Babylon, is to be restored, that is, brought back to Jerusalem and put in their proper place in God's house.
