The Proclamation of Cyrus

2 Chronicles 36

22 In the first year of King Cyrus of Persia, 1 the Lord fulfilled the prophecy he had given through Jeremiah. 2 He stirred the heart of Cyrus to put this proclamation in writing and to send it throughout his kingdom:
23 “This is what King Cyrus of Persia says:
“The Lord , the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth. He has appointed me to build him a Temple at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Any of you who are the Lord ’s people may go there for this task. And may the Lord your God be with you!”
