Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and his brethren, and builded the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings thereon, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God.

百姓到了耶路撒冷神殿的地方。第二年二月,撒拉铁的儿子所罗巴伯,约萨达的儿子,耶书亚和其馀的弟兄,就是祭司,利未人,并一切被掳归回耶路撒冷的人,都兴工建造。又派利未人,从二十岁以外的,督理建造耶和华殿的工作。
Now in the second year of their coming unto the house of God at Jerusalem, in the second month, began Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and the remnant of their brethren the priests and the Levites, and all they that were come out of the captivity unto Jerusalem; and appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward, to set forward the work of the house of the LORD.

匠人立耶和华殿根基的时候,祭司皆穿礼服吹号,亚萨的子孙利未人敲钹,照以色列王大卫所定的例,都站着赞美耶和华。
And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the LORD, they set the priests in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals, to praise the LORD, after the ordinance of David king of Israel.

第11段

他们彼此唱和,赞美称谢耶和华说,他本为善,他向以色列人永发慈爱。他们赞美耶和华的时候,众民大声呼喊,因耶和华殿的根基已经立定。
And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid.

第12段

然而有许多祭司,利未人,族长,就是见过旧殿的老年人,现在亲眼看见立这殿的根基,便大声哭号,也有许多人大声欢呼。
But many of the priests and Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had seen the first house, when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and many shouted aloud for joy:

第13段

甚至百姓不能分辨欢呼的声音,和哭号的声音。因为众人大声呼喊,声音听到远处。
So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people: for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off.
