Ezra 3:11-13 Names of God Bible (NOG)
11 As they praised and gave thanks to Yahweh, they sang antiphonally:
“He is good; his mercy toward Israel endures forever.”
Then all the people shouted, “Praise Yahweh,” because the foundation for the house of Yahweh had been laid.
12 But many of the priests, Levites, and the heads of the families who were old enough to have seen the first temple with their own eyes began to sob when they saw the foundation of this temple. Many others shouted for joy. 13 No one could distinguish between the joyful shouts and the loud sobbing because the people were shouting so loudly. The noise was heard from far away.
