Altar and Sacrifices Restored

1Καὶ ἔφθασεν ὁ μὴν ὁ ἕβδομος καὶ οἱ Ἰσραὴλ ἐν πόλεσιν αὐτῶν, καὶ συνήχθη ὁ λαὸς ὡς ἀνὴρ εἷς εἰς Ἰερουσαλήμ. 2καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ Ἰησοῦς ὁ τοῦ Ἰωσεδὲκ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν τὸ θυσιαστήριον θεοῦ Ἰσραήλ, τοῦ ἀνενέγκαι ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸ ὁλοκαυτώσεις κατὰ τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐν νόμῳ Μωυσῆ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ. 3καὶ ἡτοίμασαν τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐπὶ τὴν ἑτοιμασίαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸ ὁλοκαύτωσις τῷ κυρίῳ τὸ πρωὶ καὶ εἰς ἑσπέραν. 4καὶ ἐποίησαν τὴν ἑορτὴν τῶν σκηνῶν κατὰ τὸ γεγραμμένον, καὶ ὁλοκαυτώσεις ἡμέραν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἐν ἀριθμῷ ὡς ἡ κρίσις, λόγον ἡμέρας ἐν ἡμέρᾳ· 5καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο ὁλοκαυτώσεις ἐνδελεχισμοῦ, καὶ εἰς τὰς νουμηνίας καὶ εἰς πάσας ἑορτὰς τὰς ἡγιασμένας, καὶ παντὶ ἑκουσιαζομένῳ ἑκούσιον τῷ κυρίῳ. 6ἐν ἡμέρᾳ μιᾷ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ ἑβδόμου ἤρξαντο ἀναφέρειν ὁλοκαυτώσεις τῷ κυρίῳ· καὶ ὁ οἶκος Κυρίου οὐκ ἐθεμελιώθη. 7καὶ ἔδωκαν ἀργύριον τοῖς λατόμοις καὶ τοῖς τέκτοσιν, καὶ βρώματα καὶ ποτὰ καὶ ἔλαιον τοῖς Σηδαμεὶν καὶ τοῖς Σωρεὶν ἐνέγκαι ξύλα κέδρινα ἀπὸ τοῦ Λιβάνου πρὸς θάλασσαν Ἰόππης, κατ᾽ ἐπιχώρησιν Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς.

Temple Restoration Begins

8Καὶ ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ δευτέρῳ τοῦ ἐλθεῖν αὐτοὺς εἰς οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς Ἰερουσαλήμ, ἐν μηνὶ τῷ δευτέρῳ, ἤρξατο Ζοροβαβὲλ ὁ τοῦ Σαλαθιὴλ καὶ Ἰησοῦς ὁ τοῦ Ἰωσεδὲκ καὶ οἱ κατάλοιποι τῶν ἀδελφῶν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευεῖται καὶ πάντες οἱ ἐρχόμενοι ἀπὸ τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας εἰς Ἰερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἔστησαν τοὺς Λευείτας ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω ἐπὶ τὰ ἔργα Κυρίου. 9καὶ ἔστη Ἰησοῦς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ, Καδμιὴλ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ υἱοὶ Ἰούδα, ἐπὶ τοὺς ποιοῦντας τὰ ἔργα ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ· υἱοὶ Ἡναάδ, υἱοὶ αὐτῶν καὶ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτῶν οἱ Λευεῖται.

10καὶ ἐθεμελίωσαν τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου· καὶ ἔστησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐστολισμένοι ἐν σάλπιγξιν καὶ οἱ Λευεῖται υἱοὶ Ἀσὰφ τοῦ αἰνεῖν τὸν κύριον ἐπὶ χεῖρας Δαυεὶδ βασιλέως Ἰσραήλ. 11καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν ἐν αἴνῳ καὶ ἀνθομολογήσει τῷ κυρίῳ Ὃτι ἀγαθόν, ὅτι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ Ἰσραήλ. καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐσήμαινον φωνὴν μεγάλην αἰνεῖν τῷ κυρίῳ ἐπὶ θεμελιώσει οἴκου Κυρίου. 12καὶ πολλοὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευειτῶν καὶ ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν οἱ πρεσβύτεροι οἵ εἴδοσαν τὸν οἶκον τὸν πρῶτον ἐν θεμελιώσει αὐτοῦ, καὶ τοῦτον τὸν οἶκον ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτῶν, ἔκλαιον φωνῇ μεγάλῃ, καὶ ὄχλος ἐν σημασίᾳ μετ᾽ εὐφροσύνης τοῦ ὑψῶσαι ᾠδήν. 13καὶ οὐκ ἦν λαὸς ἐπιγινώσκων φωνὴν σημασίας τῆς εὐφροσύνης ἀπὸ τῆς φωνῆς τοῦ κλαυθμοῦ, ὅτι ὁ λαὸς ἐκραύγασεν φωνῇ μεγάλῃ, καὶ ἠκούετο ἕως ἀπὸ μακρόθεν.
