Ezra 3:2

Ezra 3:2

Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak
Who was the high priest, and the proper person to give the lead in the following work:

and his brethren the priests;
the common priests, very fit to join him, and assist him in it:

and Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel;
the prince and governor of Judah, whose presence was necessary to give countenance to the work, and animate to it:

and his brethren;
the princes and heads of the people, particularly those mentioned ( Ezra 2:2 )

and builded the altar of the God of Israel;
the altar of burnt offering, gave orders for the building of it, and directions about it:

to offer burnt offerings thereon, as it is written in the law of Moses
the man of God;
or prophet of God, as the Syriac version; see ( Leviticus 1:1-17 ) .
