Ezra 3:1-3 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
Worship in Jerusalem Restored
3 Now the seventh month drew near and the Israelites[a] were in the cities, so the people gathered as one[b] in Jerusalem. 2 And Jeshua son of Jehozadak and his brothers the priests stood up, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and his brothers built the altar of the God of Israel, in order to offer burnt offerings on it, as it is written in the law of Moses, the man of God. 3 They set up the altar on its foundations, because they were in terror[c] because of the peoples of the lands. And they offered burnt offerings on it for Yahweh, burnt offerings for the morning and the evening.
