Ezra Sends for Levites

15Καὶ συνῆξα αὐτοὺς πρὸς τὸν ποταμὸν τὸν ἐρχόμενον πρὸς τὸν Εὐείμ, καὶ παρενεβάλομεν ἐκεῖ ἡμέρας τρεῖς· καὶ συνῆκα ἐν τῷ λαῷ καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν, καὶ ἀπὸ υἱῶν Λευεὶ οὐχ εὗρον ἐκεῖ. 16καὶ ἀπέστειλα τῷ Ἐλεαζάρ, τῷ Ἀριήλ, τῷ Σαμαιὰ καὶ τῷ Ἀλωνὰμ καὶ τῷ Ἀρὲβ καὶ τῷ Ἐλναθὰμ καὶ τῷ Ναθὰν καὶ τῷ Ζαχαρίᾳ καὶ τῷ Μεσουὰμ ἄνδρας· καὶ τῷ Ἀρεὶβ καὶ τῷ Ἐαναθὰν συνιόντας. 17καὶ ἐξήνεγκα αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ ἄρχοντος ἐν ἀργυρίῳ τοῦ τόπου, καὶ ἔθηκα ἐν στόματι αὐτῶν λόγους λαλῆσαι πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῶν τῶν Ἀθανείμ ἐν ἀργυρίῳ τόπου τοῦ ἐνέγκαι ἡμῖν ᾄδοντας εἰς οἶκον θεοῦ ἡμῶν. 18καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἡμῖν, ὡς χεὶρ θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἀγαθὴ ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς, ἀνὴρ σαχὼχ ἀπὸ υἱῶν Μοολεὶ υἱοῦ Λευεὶ υἱοῦ Ἰσραήλ· καὶ ἀρχὴν ἤλθοσαν υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ὀκτὼ καὶ δέκα· 19καὶ τὸν Ἁσεβειὰ καὶ τὸν Ὠσαίαν ἀπὸ υἱῶν Μεραρει, ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν εἴκοσι· 20καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν Ναθεινεὶμ ὧν ἔδωκεν Δαυεὶδ καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες εἰς δουλείαν τῶν Λευειτῶν, Ναθεινεὶμ διακόσιοι καὶ εἴκοσι· πάντες συνήχθησαν ἐν ὀνόμασιν.

Fasting for Protection

21καὶ ἐκάλεσα ἐκεῖ νηστείαν ἐπὶ τὸν ποταμὸν Θουὲ τοῦ ταπεινωθῆναι ἐνώπιον θεοῦ ἡμῶν, ζητῆσαι παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὁδὸν εὐθεῖαν ἡμῖν καὶ τοῖς τέκνοις ἡμῶν καὶ πάσῃ τῇ κτήσει ἡμῶν. 22ὅτι ᾐσχύνθην αἰτήσασθαι παρὰ τοῦ βασιλέως δύναμιν καὶ ἱππεῖς σῶσαι ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ ἐχθροῦ ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ, ὅτι εἴπαμεν τῷ βασιλεῖ λέγοντες Χεὶρ θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἐπὶ πάντας τοὺς ζητοῦντας αὐτὸν εἰς ἀγαθόν, καὶ κράτος αὐτοῦ καὶ θυμὸς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ πάντας ἐν καταλείποντας αὐτόν. 23καὶ ἐνηστεύσαμεν καὶ ἐζητήσαμεν παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν περὶ τούτου, καὶ ἐπήκουσεν ἡμῖν.

24καὶ διέστειλα ἀπὸ ἀρχόντων τῶν ἱερέων δώδεκα, τῷ Σαραιά, Ἁσαβιά, καὶ μετ᾽ αὐτῶν ἀπὸ ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν δώδεκα. 25καὶ ἔστησα αὐτοῖς τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὰ σκεύη ἀπαρχῆς οἴκου θεοῦ ἡμῶν, ἃ ὕψωσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ οἱ σύμβουλοι αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶς Ἰσραὴλ οἱ εὑρισκόμενοι. 26καὶ ἔστησα ἐπὶ χεῖρας αὐτῶν ἀργυρίου τάλαντα ἑξακόσια καὶ πεντήκοντα, καὶ σκεύη ἀργυρᾶ ἑκατόν, καὶ τάλαντα χρυσίου ἑκατόν· 27καὶ καφουδὴθ χρυσοῖ εἴκοσι εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν χαμανεὶμ χίλιοι, καὶ σκεύη χαλκοῦ στίλβοντος ἀγαθοῦ διάφορα, ἐπιθυμητὰ ἐν χρυσίῳ. 28καὶ εἶπα πρὸς αὐτούς Ὑμεῖς ἅγιοι τῷ κυρίῳ, καὶ τὰ σκεύη ἅγια καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον ἑκούσια τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ πατέρων ἡμῶν· 29ἀγρυπνεῖτε καὶ τηρεῖτε, ἕως στῆτε ἐνώπιον ἀρχόντων τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευειτῶν καὶ τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν πατριῶν ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ, εἰς σκηνὰς οἴκου Κυρίου. 30καὶ ἐδέξαντο οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευεῖται σταθμὸν τοῦ ἀργυρίου καὶ τοῦ χρυσίου καὶ τῶν σκευῶν, ἐνεγκεῖν εἰς Ἰερουσαλὴμ εἰς οἶκον θεοῦ ἡμῶν.

31Καὶ ἐξήραμεν ἀπὸ τοῦ ποταμοῦ Θουὲ ἐν τῇ δωδεκάτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ πρώτου τοῦ ἐλθεῖν εἰς Ἰερουσαλὴμ· καὶ χεὶρ θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἦν ἐφ᾽ ἡμῖν, καὶ ἐρύσατο ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ χειρὸς ἐχθροῦ καὶ πολεμίου ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ. 32καὶ ἤλθομεν εἰς Ἰερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἐκαθίσαμεν ἐκεῖ ἡμέρας τρεῖς.

35διελθόντες ἐκ τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας υἱοὶ τῆς παροικίας προσήνεγκαν ὁλοκαυτώσεις τῷ θεῷ Ἰσραήλ, μόσχους δώδεκα περὶ παντὸς Ἰσραήλ, κριοὺς ἐνενήκοντα ἕξ, ἀμνοὺς ἑβδομήκοντα καὶ ἑπτά, χιμάρους περὶ ἁμαρτίας δώδεκα, τὰ πάντα ὁλοκαυτωμάτων. 36καὶ ἔδωκαν τὸ νόμισμα τοῦ βασιλέως τοῖς διοικηταῖς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐπάρχοις πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ· καὶ ἐδόξασαν τὸν λαὸν καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ.
