Read Ezra 5 in full at Bible Gateway.
With apologies to Haggai and Zechariah, whose prophecies got the temple-building back on track but whose names are too long for the summary.
Haggai and Zechariah not only prophesied to the Jews in Judah and Jerusalem they also V2..... were with them, supporting them.
I summarised all 1,189 chapters of the Bible on Twitter - one tweet per chapter, one chapter per day for over three years.
These are the summaries of the book of Ezra.
They are written to help you understand and remember what's going on in the chapter, but they're no substitute for reading the Bible for yourself.
All the summaries in a paperback book or on Kindle.
