Ezra Reads the Law

1Καὶ ἔφθασεν ὁ μὴν ὁ ἕβδομος καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραὴλ ἐν πόλεσιν αὐτῶν, καὶ συνήχθησαν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὡς ἀνὴρ εἷς εἰς τὸ πλάτος τὸ ἔμπροσθεν πύλης τοῦ ὕδατος. καὶ εἶπαν τῷ Ἔσρᾳ τῷ γραμματεῖ ἐνέγκαι τὸ βιβλίον νόμου Μωυσῆ ὃ ἐνετείλατο τῷ Ἰσραήλ. 2καὶ ἤνεγκεν Ἔσρας ὁ ἱερεὺς τὸν νόμον ἐνώπιον τῆς ἐκκλησίας, ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς ἕως γυναικὸς καὶ πᾶς ὁ συνίων ἀκούειν, ἐν ἡμέρᾳ μιᾷ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ ἑβδόμου· 3καὶ ἀνέγνω ἐν αὐτῷ ἀπὸ τῆς ὥρας τοῦ διαφωτίσαι τὸν ἥλιον ἕως ἡμίσους τῆς ἡμέρας ἀπέναντι τῶν ἀνδρῶν καὶ τῶν γυναικῶν, καὶ αὐτοὶ συνιέντες· καὶ ὦτα παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ εἰς τὸ βιβλίον τοῦ νόμου. 4καὶ ἔστη Ἔσρας ὁ γραμματεὺς ἐπὶ βήματος ξυλίνου, καὶ ἔστησεν ἐχόμενα αὐτοῦ Ματταθίας καὶ Σαμαίας καὶ Ἀνανιὰ καὶ Οὐρειὰ καὶ Ἑλκειὰ καὶ Μαασσαιὰ ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐξ ἀριστερῶν Φαδαίας καὶ Μεισαὴλ καὶ Μελχείας καὶ Ζαχαρίας. 5καὶ ἤνοιξεν Ἔσρας τὸ βιβλίον ἐνώπιον παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ, ὅτι αὐτὸς ἦν ἐπάνω τοῦ λαοῦ· καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἤνοιξεν αὐτό, ἔστη πᾶς ὁ λαός. 6καὶ ηὐλόγησεν τὸν κύριον τὸν θεὸν τὸν μέγαν, καὶ ἀπεκρίθη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς καὶ εἶπαν Ἀμήν, καὶ ἔκυψαν καὶ προσεκύνησαν τῷ κυρίῳ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν. 7καὶ Ἰησοῦς καὶ Βαναιὰ καὶ Σαραβιὰ ἦσαν συνετίζοντες τὸν λαὸν εἰς τὸν νόμον· καὶ ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ στάσει αὐτοῦ. 8καὶ ἀνέγνωσαν ἐν βιβλίῳ νόμου τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ ἐδίδασκεν Ἔσρας καὶ διέστελλεν ἐν ἐπιστήμῃ Κυρίου, καὶ συνῆκεν ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ ἀναγνώσει.

This Day is Holy

9καὶ εἶπεν Νεεμίας, καὶ Ἔσρας ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ γραμματεὺς καὶ οἱ Λευεῖται συνέτιζον τὸν λαόν, καὶ εἶπαν παντὶ τῷ λαῷ Ἡμέρα ἁγία ἐστὶν Κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν, μὴ πενθεῖτε μηδὲ κλαίετε· ὅτι ἔκλαιεν πᾶς ὁ λαός, ὡς ἤκουσαν τοὺς λόγους τοῦ νόμου. 10καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Πορεύεσθε, φάγετε λιπάσματα καὶ πίετε γλυκάσματα καὶ ἀποστείλατε μερίδα τοῖς μὴ ἔχουσιν, ὅτι ἁγία ἐστὶν ἡ ἡμέρα τῷ κυρίῳ ἡμῶν· καὶ μὴ διαπέσητε, ὅτι ἐστὶν ἰσχὺς ἡμῶν. 11καὶ οἱ Λευεῖται κατεσιώπων τὸν λαὸν λέγοντες Σιωπᾶτε, ὅτι ἡ ἡμέρα ἁγία, καὶ μὴ καταπίπτετε. 12καὶ ἀπῆλθεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς φαγεῖν καὶ πιεῖν καὶ ἀποστέλλειν μερίδας καὶ ποιῆσαι εὐφροσύνην μεγάλην, ὅτι συνῆκαν ἐν τοῖς λόγοις οἷς ἐγνώρισεν αὐτοῖς.

The Feast of Booths

13Καὶ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ δευτέρᾳ συνήχθησαν οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν σὺν τῷ παντὶ λαῷ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευεῖται πρὸς Ἔσραν τὸν γραμματέα, ἐπιστῆσαι πρὸς πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ νόμου. 14καὶ εὕροσαν γεγραμμένον ἐν τῷ νόμῳ ᾧ ἐνετείλατο Κύριος τῷ Μωσῇ, ὅπως κατοικήσωσιν οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραὴλ ἐν σκηναῖς ἐν ἑορτῇ ἐν μηνὶ τῷ ἑβδόμῳ, 15καὶ ὅπως σημαίνωσιν σάλπιγξιν ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ. καὶ εἶπεν Ἔσρας Ἐξέλθετε εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ ἐνέγκετε φύλλα ἐλαίας καὶ φύλλα ξύλων κυπαρισσίνων καὶ φύλλα μυρσίνης καὶ φύλλα φοινίκων καὶ φύλλα ξύλου δασέος, ποιῆσαι σκηνὰς κατὰ τὸ γεγραμμένον. 16καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ λαὸς καὶ ἤνεγκαν, καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς σκηνὰς ἀνὴρ ἐπὶ τοῦ δώματος αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν ταῖς αὐλαῖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν ταῖς αὐλαῖς οἴκου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐν ταῖς πλατείαις τῆς πόλεως καὶ ἕως πύλης Ἐφράιμ. 17καὶ ἐποίησαν πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία οἱ ἐπιστρέψαντες ἀπὸ τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας σκηνάς, καὶ ἐκάθισαν ἐν σκηναίς· ὅτι οὐκ ἐποίησαν ἀπὸ ἡμερῶν Ἰησοῦ υἱοῦ Ναυὴ οὕτως οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραὴλ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης· καὶ ἐγένετο εὐφροσύνη μεγάλη. 18καὶ ἀνέγνω ἐν βιβλίῳ νόμου τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμέραν ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας τῆς πρώτης ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας τῆς ἐσχάτης· καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑορτὴν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας, καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ὀγδόῃ ἐξόδιον.
