Now therefore Tatnai, governor beyond the river
The river Euphrates, that side of it towards the land of Israel; Josephus F26 calls this man master of the horse:
Shetharboznai, and your companions the Apharsachites, which are beyond
the river, be ye far from thence;
keep at a distance from the Jews, and give them no disturbance, nor interrupt them in their work of building of the temple, but mind your own business and government.
