Ezra 10


1  Now when Ezra5830 had prayed,6419 and when he had confessed,3034 weeping1058 and casting himself down5307 before6440 the house1004 of God,430 there assembled6908 unto413 him out of Israel4480 3478 a very3966 great7227 congregation6951 of men376 and women802 and children:3206 for3588 the people5971 wept1058 very sore.7235 1059

2  And Shechaniah7935 the son1121 of Jehiel,3171 one of the sons4480 1121 of Elam,5867 answered6030 and said559 unto Ezra,5830 We587 have trespassed4603 against our God,430 and have taken3427 strange5237 wives802 of the people4480 5971 of the land:776 yet now6258 there is3426 hope4723 in Israel3478 concerning5921 this2063 thing.

3  Now6258 therefore let us make3772 a covenant1285 with our God430 to put away3318 all3605 the wives,802 and such as are born3205 of4480 them, according to the counsel6098 of my lord,136 and of those that tremble2730 at the commandment4687 of our God;430 and let it be done6213 according to the law.8451

4  Arise;6965 for3588 this matter1697 belongeth unto5921 thee: we587 also will be with5973 thee: be of good courage,2388 and do6213 it.

5  Then arose6965 Ezra,5830 and made 853 the chief8269 priests,3548 the Levites,3881 and all3605 Israel,3478 to swear7650 that they should do6213 according to this2088 word.1697 And they swore.7650

6  Then Ezra5830 rose up6965 from before4480 6440 the house1004 of God,430 and went1980 into413 the chamber3957 of Johanan3076 the son1121 of Eliashib:475 and when he came1980 thither,8033 he did eat398 no3808 bread,3899 nor3808 drink8354 water:4325 for3588 he mourned56 because5921 of the transgression4604 of them that had been carried away.1473

7  And they made proclamation5674 6963 throughout Judah3063 and Jerusalem3389 unto all3605 the children1121 of the captivity,1473 that they should gather themselves together6908 unto Jerusalem;3389

8  And that whosoever3605 834 would not3808 come935 within three7969 days,3117 according to the counsel6098 of the princes8269 and the elders,2205 all3605 his substance7399 should be forfeited,2763 and himself1931 separated914 from the congregation4480 6951 of those that had been carried away.1473

9  Then all3605 the men376 of Judah3063 and Benjamin1144 gathered themselves together6908 unto Jerusalem3389 within three7969 days.3117 It1931 was the ninth8671 month,2320 on the twentieth6242 day of the month;2320 and all3605 the people5971 sat3427 in the street7339 of the house1004 of God,430 trembling7460 because5921 of this matter,1697 and for the great rain.4480 1653

10  And Ezra5830 the priest3548 stood up,6965 and said559 unto413 them, Ye859 have transgressed,4603 and have taken3427 strange5237 wives,802 to increase3254 5921 the trespass819 of Israel.3478

11  Now6258 therefore make5414 confession8426 unto the LORD3068 God430 of your fathers,1 and do6213 his pleasure:7522 and separate yourselves914 from the people4480 5971 of the land,776 and from4480 the strange5237 wives.802

12  Then all3605 the congregation6951 answered6030 and said559 with a loud1419 voice,6963 As thou hast said,1697 5921 so3651 must we do.6213

13  But61 the people5971 are many,7227 and it is a time6256 of much rain,1653 and we are not369 able3581 to stand5975 without,2351 neither3808 is this a work4399 of one259 day3117 or3808 two:8147 for3588 we are many7235 that have transgressed6586 in this2088 thing.1697

14  Let now4994 our rulers8269 of all3605 the congregation6951 stand,5975 and let all3605 them which834 have taken3427 strange5237 wives802 in our cities5892 come935 at appointed2163 times,6256 and with5973 them the elders2205 of every city,5892 5892 and the judges8199 thereof, until5704 the fierce2740 wrath639 of our God430 for5704 this2088 matter1697 be turned7725 from4480 us.

15  Only389 Jonathan3083 the son1121 of Asahel6214 and Jahaziah3167 the son1121 of Tikvah8616 were employed5975 about5921 this2063 matter: and Meshullam4918 and Shabbethai7678 the Levite3881 helped5826 them.

16  And the children1121 of the captivity1473 did6213 so.3651 And Ezra5830 the priest,3548 with certain376 chief7218 of the fathers,1 after the house1004 of their fathers,1 and all3605 of them by their names,8034 were separated,914 and sat down3427 in the first259 day3117 of the tenth6224 month2320 to examine1875 the matter.1697

17  And they made an end3615 with all3605 the men376 that had taken3427 strange5237 wives802 by5704 the first259 day3117 of the first7223 month.2320

18  And among the sons4480 1121 of the priests3548 there were found4672 that834 had taken3427 strange5237 wives:802 namely, of the sons4480 1121 of Jeshua3442 the son1121 of Jozadak,3136 and his brethren;251 Maaseiah,4641 and Eliezer,461 and Jarib,3402 and Gedaliah.1436

19  And they gave5414 their hands3027 that they would put away3318 their wives;802 and being guilty,818 they offered a ram352 of the flock6629 for5921 their trespass.819

1 Sic ergo orante Esdra, et implorante eo et flente, et jacente ante templum Dei, collectus est ad eum de Israël cœtus grandis nimis virorum et mulierum et puerorum, et flevit populus fletu multo.

2 Et respondit Sechenias filius Jehiel de filiis Ælam, et dixit Esdræ: Nos prævaricati sumus in Deum nostrum, et duximus uxores alienigenas de populis terræ: et nunc, si est pœnitentia in Israël super hoc,

3 percutiamus fœdus cum Domino Deo nostro, ut projiciamus universas uxores, et eos qui de his nati sunt, juxta voluntatem Domini, et eorum qui timent præceptum Domini Dei nostri: secundum legem fiat.

4 Surge, tuum est decernere, nosque erimus tecum: confortare, et fac.

5 Surrexit ergo Esdras, et adjuravit principes sacerdotum et Levitarum, et omnem Israël, ut facerent secundum verbum hoc: et juraverunt.

6 Et surrexit Esdras ante domum Dei, et abiit ad cubiculum Johanan filii Eliasib, et ingressus est illuc: panem non comedit, et aquam non bibit: lugebat enim transgressionem eorum, qui venerant de captivitate.

7 Et missa est vox in Juda et in Jerusalem omnibus filiis transmigrationis, ut congregarentur in Jerusalem:

8 et omnis qui non venerit in tribus diebus juxta consilium principum et seniorum, auferetur universa substantia ejus, et ipse abjicietur de cœtu transmigrationis.

9 Convenerunt igitur omnes viri Juda et Benjamin in Jerusalem tribus diebus: ipse est mensis nonus, vigesimo die mensis: et sedit omnis populus in platea domus Dei, trementes pro peccato, et pluviis.

10 Et surrexit Esdras sacerdos, et dixit ad eos: Vos transgressi estis, et duxistis uxores alienigenas, ut adderetis super delictum Israël.

11 Et nunc date confessionem Domino Deo patrum vestrorum, et facite placitum ejus, et separamini a populis terræ, et ab uxoribus alienigenis.

12 Et respondit universa multitudo, dixitque voce magna: Juxta verbum tuum ad nos, sic fiat.

13 Verumtamen quia populus multus est, et tempus pluviæ, et non sustinemus stare foris, et opus non est diei unius vel duorum (vehementer quippe peccavimus in sermone isto),

14 constituantur principes in universa multitudine: et omnes in civitatibus nostris qui duxerunt uxores alienigenas veniant in temporibus statutis, et cum his seniores per civitatem et civitatem, et judices ejus, donec avertatur ira Dei nostri a nobis super peccato hoc.

15 Igitur Jonathan filius Azahel, et Jaasia filius Thecue, steterunt super hoc, et Messollam et Sebethai Levites adjuverunt eos:

16 feceruntque sic filii transmigrationis. Et abierunt Esdras sacerdos, et viri principes familiarum, in domos patrum suorum, et omnes per nomina sua, et sederunt in die primo mensis decimi ut quærerent rem.

17 Et consummati sunt omnes viri, qui duxerant uxores alienigenas, usque ad diem primam mensis primi.
