|1 波斯王古列元年，耶和华为要应验藉耶利米口所说的话，就激动波斯王古列的心，使他下诏通告全国，说， |
In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah, the LORD moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and to put it in writing:
|2 波斯王古列如此说，耶和华天上的神，已将天下万国赐给我。又嘱咐我在犹大的耶路撒冷，为他建造殿宇。 |
"This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: "'The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah.
|3 在你们中间凡作他子民的，可以上犹大的耶路撒冷，在耶路撒冷重建耶和华以色列神的殿（只有他是神）。愿神与这人同在。 |
Anyone of his people among you--may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the LORD, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem.
|4 凡剩下的人，无论寄居何处，那地的人要用金银，财物，牲畜帮助他，另外也要为耶路撒冷神的殿甘心献上礼物。 |
And the people of any place where survivors may now be living are to provide him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the temple of God in Jerusalem.'"
|5 于是，犹大和便雅悯的族长，祭司，利未人，就是一切被神激动他心的人，都起来要上耶路撒冷去建造耶和华的殿。 |
Then the family heads of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and Levites--everyone whose heart God had moved--prepared to go up and build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem.
|6 他们四围的人就拿银器，金子，财物，牲畜，珍宝帮助他们（原文作坚固他们的手），另外还有甘心献的礼物。 |
All their neighbors assisted them with articles of silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with valuable gifts, in addition to all the freewill offerings.
|7 古列王也将耶和华殿的器皿拿出来，这器皿是尼布甲尼撒从耶路撒冷掠来，放在自己神之庙中的。 |
Moreover, King Cyrus brought out the articles belonging to the temple of the LORD, which Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from Jerusalem and had placed in the temple of his god.
|8 波斯王古列派库官米提利达将这器皿拿出来，按数交给犹大的首领设巴萨。 |
Cyrus king of Persia had them brought by Mithredath the treasurer, who counted them out to Sheshbazzar the prince of Judah.
|9 器皿的数目记在下面。金盘三十个，银盘一千个，刀二十九把， |
This was the inventory: gold dishes 30 silver dishes 1,000 silver pans 29
|10 金碗三十个，银碗之次的四百一十个，别样的器皿一千件。 |

|11 金银器皿共有五千四百件。被掳的人从巴比伦上耶路撒冷的时候，设巴萨将这一切都带上来。 |
In all, there were 5,400 articles of gold and of silver. Sheshbazzar brought all these along when the exiles came up from Babylon to Jerusalem.
