Book 15 Ezra Chapter 001
|001:001||Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word|
of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the
LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he
made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it
also in writing, saying,
|001:002||Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath|
