The gracious commission of Artaxerxes to Ezra.

Ezra 7:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Now this [is] the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, [even] a scribe of the words of the commandments of the LORD, and of his statutes to Israel. Ezra 7:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Artaxerxes, king of kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect [peace], and at such a time. Ezra 7:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} I make a decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and [of] his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee. Ezra 7:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Forasmuch as thou art sent of the king, and of his seven counselors, to inquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of thy God which [is] in thine hand; Ezra 7:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counselors have freely offered unto the God of Israel, whose habitation [is] in Jerusalem, Ezra 7:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And all the silver and gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon, with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which [is] in Jerusalem: Ezra 7:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your God which [is] in Jerusalem. Ezra 7:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And whatsoever shall seem good to thee, and to thy brethren, to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, that do after the will of your God. Ezra 7:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, [those] deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem. Ezra 7:20 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And whatsoever more shall be needful for the house of thy God, which thou shalt have occasion to bestow, bestow [it] out of the king's treasure house.

Ezra 7:23 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Whatsoever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the God of heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons? Ezra 7:24 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims, or ministers of this house of God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them. Ezra 7:25 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that [is] in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the people that [are] beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know [them] not. Ezra 7:26 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And whosoever will not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him, whether [it be] unto death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.

Ezra blesseth God for his favour.

Ezra 7:27 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Blessed [be] the LORD God of our fathers, which hath put [such a thing] as this in the king's heart, to beautify the house of the LORD which [is] in Jerusalem: Ezra 7:28 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And hath extended mercy unto me before the king, and his counselors, and before all the king's mighty princes. And I was strengthened as the hand of the LORD my God [was] upon me, and I gathered together out of Israel chief men to go up with me.
