Ezra 7 (WEBP)
 Now after these things, in the reign of Artaxerxes king of Persia, Ezra the son of Seraiah, the son of Azariah, the son of Hilkiah,
 the son of Shallum, the son of Zadok, the son of Ahitub,
 the son of Amariah, the son of Azariah, the son of Meraioth,
 the son of Zerahiah, the son of Uzzi, the son of Bukki,
 the son of Abishua, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the chief priest—
 this Ezra went up from Babylon. He was a skilled scribe in the law of Moses, which Yahweh, the God of Israel, had given; and the king granted him all his request, according to Yahweh his God’s hand on him.
 Some of the children of Israel, including some of the priests, the Levites, the singers, the gatekeepers, and the temple servants went up to Jerusalem in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king.
 He came to Jerusalem in the fifth month, which was in the seventh year of the king.
 For on the first day of the first month he began to go up from Babylon; and on the first day of the fifth month he came to Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God on him.
 For Ezra had set his heart to seek Yahweh’s law, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel.
 Now this is the copy of the letter that King Artaxerxes gave to Ezra the priest, the scribe, even the scribe of the words of Yahweh’s commandments, and of his statutes to Israel:
 Artaxerxes, king of kings,
 I make a decree that all those of the people of Israel and their priests and the Levites in my realm, who intend of their own free will to go to Jerusalem, go with you.
 Because you are sent by the king and his seven counselors to inquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of your God which is in your hand,
 and to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counselors have freely offered to the God of Israel, whose habitation is in Jerusalem,
 and all the silver and gold that you will find in all the province of Babylon, with the free will offering of the people and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which is in Jerusalem.
 Therefore you shall with all diligence buy with this money bulls, rams, and lambs with their meal offerings and their drink offerings, and shall offer them on the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem.
 Whatever seems good to you and to your brothers to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, do that according to the will of your God.
 The vessels that are given to you for the service of the house of your God, deliver before the God of Jerusalem.
 Whatever more will be needed for the house of your God, which you may have occasion to give, give it out of the king’s treasure house.
 I, even I, Artaxerxes the king, make a decree to all the treasurers who are beyond the River, that whatever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of heaven, requires of you, it shall be done with all diligence,
 up to one hundred talents° of silver, and to one hundred cors° of wheat, and to one hundred baths° of wine, and to one hundred baths of oil, and salt without prescribing how much.
 Whatever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be done exactly for the house of the God of heaven; for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons?
 Also we inform you that it shall not be lawful to impose tribute, custom, or toll on any of the priests, Levites, singers, gatekeepers, temple servants, or laborers of this house of God.
 You, Ezra, according to the wisdom of your God that is in your hand, appoint magistrates and judges who may judge all the people who are beyond the River, who all know the laws of your God; and teach him who doesn’t know them.
 Whoever will not do the law of your God and the law of the king, let judgment be executed on him with all diligence, whether it is to death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.
 Blessed be Yahweh, the God of our fathers, who has put such a thing as this in the king’s heart, to beautify Yahweh’s house which is in Jerusalem;
 and has extended loving kindness to me before the king and his counselors, and before all the king’s mighty princes. I was strengthened according to Yahweh my God’s hand on me, and I gathered together chief men out of Israel to go up with me.

Ezra 7 (KJVS)
 Now after H310 these things H1697, in the reign H4438 of Artaxerxes H783 king H4428 of Persia H6539, Ezra H5830 the son H1121 of Seraiah H8304, the son H1121 of Azariah H5838, the son H1121 of Hilkiah H2518,
 The son H1121 of Shallum H7967, the son H1121 of Zadok H6659, the son H1121 of Ahitub H285,
 The son H1121 of Amariah H568, the son H1121 of Azariah H5838, the son H1121 of Meraioth H4812,
 The son H1121 of Zerahiah H2228, the son H1121 of Uzzi H5813, the son H1121 of Bukki H1231,
 The son H1121 of Abishua H50, the son H1121 of Phinehas H6372, the son H1121 of Eleazar H499, the son H1121 of Aaron H175 the chief H7218 priest H3548:
 This Ezra H5830 went up H5927 (8804) from Babylon H894; and he [was] a ready H4106 scribe H5608 (8802) in the law H8451 of Moses H4872, which the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478 had given H5414 (8804): and the king H4428 granted H5414 (8799) him all his request H1246, according to the hand H3027 of the LORD H3068 his God H430 upon him.
 And there went up H5927 (8799) [some] of the children H1121 of Israel H3478, and of the priests H3548, and the Levites H3881, and the singers H7891 (8789), and the porters H7778, and the Nethinims H5411, unto Jerusalem H3389, in the seventh H7651 year H8141 of Artaxerxes H783 the king H4428.
 And he came H935 (8799) to Jerusalem H3389 in the fifth H2549 month H2320, which [was] in the seventh H7637 year H8141 of the king H4428.
 For upon the first H259 [day] of the first H7223 month H2320 began H3246 he to go up H4609 from Babylon H894, and on the first H259 [day] of the fifth H2549 month H2320 came H935 (8804) he to Jerusalem H3389, according to the good H2896 hand H3027 of his God H430 upon him.
 For Ezra H5830 had prepared H3559 (8689) his heart H3824 to seek H1875 (8800) the law H8451 of the LORD H3068, and to do H6213 (8800) [it], and to teach H3925 (8763) in Israel H3478 statutes H2706 and judgments H4941.
 Now this [is] the copy H6572 of the letter H5406 that the king H4428 Artaxerxes H783 gave H5414 (8804) unto Ezra H5830 the priest H3548, the scribe H5608 (8802), [even] a scribe H5608 (8802) of the words H1697 of the commandments H4687 of the LORD H3068, and of his statutes H2706 to Israel H3478.
 Artaxerxes H783, king H4430 of kings H4430, unto Ezra H5831 the priest H3549, a scribe H5613 of the law H1882 of the God H426 of heaven H8065, perfect H1585 (8752) [peace], and at such a time H3706.
 I H4481 make H7761 (8752) a decree H2942, that all H3606 they of H4481 the people H5972 of Israel H3479, and [of] his priests H3549 and Levites H3879, in my realm H4437, which are minded of their own freewill H5069 (8723) to go up H1946 (8749) to Jerusalem H3390, go H1946 (8748) with thee H5974.
 Forasmuch H1768 H6903 as H3606 thou art sent H7972 (8750) of H4481 H6925 the king H4430, and of his seven H7655 counsellors H3272 (8750), to enquire H1240 (8742) concerning H5922 Judah H3061 and Jerusalem H3390, according to the law H1882 of thy God H426 which [is] in thine hand H3028;
 And to carry H2987 (8682) the silver H3702 and gold H1722, which the king H4430 and his counsellors H3272 (8750) have freely offered H5069 (8724) unto the God H426 of Israel H3479, whose H1768 habitation H4907 [is] in Jerusalem H3390,
 And all H3606 the silver H3702 and gold H1722 that thou canst find H7912 (8681) in all H3606 the province H4083 of Babylon H895, with H5974 the freewill offering H5069 (8722) of the people H5972, and of the priests H3549, offering willingly H5069 (8723) for the house H1005 of their God H426 which [is] in Jerusalem H3390:
 That H3606 H6903 thou mayest buy H7066 (8748) speedily H629 with this H1836 money H3702 bullocks H8450, rams H1798, lambs H563, with their meat offerings H4504 and their drink offerings H5261, and offer H7127 (8741) them H1994 upon H5922 the altar H4056 of the house H1005 of your God H426 which [is] in Jerusalem H3390.
 And whatsoever H4101 H1768 shall seem good H3191 (8748) to thee, and to H5922 thy brethren H252, to do H5648 (8749) with the rest H7606 of the silver H3702 and the gold H1722, that do H5648 (8748) after the will H7470 of your God H426.
 The vessels H3984 also that are given H3052 (8727) thee for the service H6402 of the house H1005 of thy God H426, [those] deliver H8000 (8680) thou before H6925 the God H426 of Jerusalem H3390.
 And whatsoever more H7606 shall be needful H2819 for the house H1005 of thy God H426, which thou shalt have occasion H5308 (8748) to bestow H5415 (8749), bestow H5415 (8748) [it] out of H4481 the king’s H4430 treasure H1596 house H1005.
 And I H4481, [even] I H576 Artaxerxes H783 the king H4430, do make H7761 (8752) a decree H2942 to all H3606 the treasurers H1490 which [are] beyond H5675 the river H5103, that whatsoever Ezra H5831 the priest H3549, the scribe H5613 of the law H1882 of the God H426 of heaven H8065, shall require H7593 (8748) of you, it be done H5648 (8725) speedily H629,
 Unto H5705 an hundred H3969 talents H3604 of silver H3702, and to an hundred H3969 measures H3734 of wheat H2591, and to an hundred H3969 baths H1325 of wine H2562, and to an hundred H3969 baths H1325 of oil H4887, and salt H4416 without H3809 prescribing H3792 [how much].
 Whatsoever H3606 is commanded by H2941 H4481 the God H426 of heaven H8065, let it be diligently H149 done H5648 (8725) for the house H1005 of the God H426 of heaven H8065: for H1768 why H4101 should there be H1934 (8748) wrath H7109 against H5922 the realm H4437 of the king H4430 and his sons H1123?
 Also we certify H3046 (8683) you, that touching any H3606 of the priests H3549 and Levites H3879, singers H2171, porters H8652, Nethinims H5412, or ministers H6399 (8750) of this H1836 house H1005 of God H426, it shall not H3809 be lawful H7990 to impose H7412 (8749) toll H4061, tribute H1093, or custom H1983, upon H5922 them.
 And thou H607, Ezra H5831, after the wisdom H2452 of thy God H426, that [is] in thine hand H3028, set H4483 (8740) magistrates H8200 (8751) and judges H1782, which may judge H1934 (8748) H1778 (8751) all H3606 the people H5972 that [are] beyond H5675 the river H5103, all H3606 such as know H3046 (8751) the laws H1882 of thy God H426; and teach H3046 (8681) ye them that know H3046 (8751) [them] not H3809.
 And whosoever H3606 will not H3809 do H1934 (8748) H5648 (8751) the law H1882 of thy God H426, and the law H1882 of the king H4430, let judgment H1780 be H1934 (8748) executed H5648 (8727) speedily H629 upon him H4481, whether H2006 [it be] unto death H4193, or H2006 to banishment H8332, or H2006 to confiscation H6065 of goods H5232, or to imprisonment H613.
 Blessed H1288 (8803) [be] the LORD H3068 God H430 of our fathers H1, which hath put H5414 (8804) [such a thing] as this in the king’s H4428 heart H3820, to beautify H6286 (8763) the house H1004 of the LORD H3068 which [is] in Jerusalem H3389:
 And hath extended H5186 (8689) mercy H2617 unto me before H6440 the king H4428, and his counsellors H3289 (8802), and before all the king’s H4428 mighty H1368 princes H8269. And I was strengthened H2388 (8694) as the hand H3027 of the LORD H3068 my God H430 [was] upon me, and I gathered together H6908 (8799) out of Israel H3478 chief men H7218 to go up H5927 (8800) with me.
Young’s Literal Translation
Ezra 7 (YLT)
 And after these things, in the reign of Artaxerxes king of Persia, Ezra son of Seraiah, son of Azariah, son of Hilkiah,
 son of Shallum, son of Zadok, son of Ahitub,
 son of Amariah, son of Azariah, son of Meraioth,
 son of Zerahiah, son of Uzzi, son of Bukki,
 son of Abishua, son of Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the head priest;
 Ezra himself hath come up from Babylon, and he is a scribe ready in the law of Moses, that Jehovah God of Israel gave, and the king giveth to him-according to the hand of Jehovah his God upon him-all his request.
 And there go up of the sons of Israel, and of the priests, and the Levites, and the singers, and the gatekeepers, and the Nethinim, unto Jerusalem, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king.
 And he cometh in to Jerusalem in the fifth month, that is in the seventh year of the king,
 for on the first of the month he hath founded the ascent from Babylon, and on the first of the fifth month he hath come in unto Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God upon him,
 for Ezra hath prepared his heart to seek the law of Jehovah, and to do, and to teach in Israel statute and judgment.
 And this is a copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave to Ezra the priest, the scribe, a scribe of the words of the commands of Jehovah, and of His statutes on Israel:
 ‘Artaxerxes, king of kings, to Ezra the priest, a perfect scribe of the law of the God of heaven, and at such a time:
 By me hath been made a decree that every one who is willing, in my kingdom, of the people of Israel and of its priests and Levites, to go to Jerusalem with thee, doth go;
 because that from the king and his seven counsellors thou art sent, to inquire concerning Judah and concerning Jerusalem, with the law of God that is in thy hand,
 and to carry silver and gold that the king and his counsellors willingly offered to the God of Israel, whose tabernacle is in Jerusalem,
 and all the silver and gold that thou findest in all the province of Babylon, with the free-will offerings of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly, for the house of their God that is in Jerusalem,
 therefore thou dost speedily buy with this money, bullocks, rams, lambs, and their presents, and their libations, and dost bring them near to the altar of the house of your God that is in Jerusalem,
 and that which to thee and to thy brethren is good to do with the rest of the silver and gold, according to the will of your God ye do.’
 ‘And the vessels that are given to thee, for the service of the house of thy God, make perfect before the God of Jerusalem;
 and the rest of the needful things of the house of thy God, that it falleth to thee to give, thou dost give from the treasure-house of the king.
 ‘And by me-I Artaxerxes the king-is made a decree to all treasurers who are beyond the river, that all that Ezra the priest, scribe of the law of the God of heaven, doth ask of you, be done speedily:
 Unto silver a hundred talents, and unto wheat a hundred cors, and unto wine a hundred baths, and unto oil a hundred baths, and salt without reckoning;
 all that is by the decree of the God of heaven, let be done diligently for the house of the God of heaven; for why is there wrath against the kingdom of the king and his sons?
 ‘And to you we are making known, that upon any of the priests and Levites, singers, gatekeepers, Nethinim, and servants of the house of God, tribute and custom there is no authority to lift up.
 ‘And thou, Ezra, according to the wisdom of thy God, that is in thy hand, appoint magistrates and judges who may be judges to all the people who are beyond the river, to all knowing the law of thy God, and he who hath not known ye cause to know;
 and any who doth not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, speedily is judgment done upon him, whether to death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of riches, and to bonds.’
 Blessed is Jehovah, God of our fathers, who hath given such a thing as this in the heart of the king, to beautify the house of Jehovah that is in Jerusalem,
 and unto me hath stretched out kindness before the king and his counsellors, and before all the mighty heads of the king: and I have strengthened myself as the hand of Jehovah my God is upon me, and I gather out of Israel heads to go up with me.
