Ezra 5:11-13 New Life Version (NLV)
11 They answered, ‘We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth. We are building again the house of God that was built many years ago, which a great king of Israel built and finished. 12 But because our fathers had made the God of heaven angry, He gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, the Chaldean. Nebuchadnezzar destroyed this house of God, and carried the people away to Babylon. 13 But in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, King Cyrus told us to build again this house of God.
