the sons of Henadad, with their NODS and their brethren the Levites.

Ezra v, 1, 2. 16. Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them. Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets of God helping them. Then came the same Sheshbazzar, and laid the foundation of the house of God which is in Jerusalem; and since that time even until now hath it been in building, and yet it is not finished.

Ezra vi, 14, 15. And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet, and Zecharfah the son of Iddo: and they builded, and finished it, according

to the commandment of the God

of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia. And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.

Haggai 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 12-15. Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD'S house should be built. Then cime the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying, Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD. Ye looked for much, and, lo, it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house. Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, (as the LORD their God had sent him.) and the people did fear before the LORD. Then spake Haggai the LORD's messenger in the LORD's message unto the people, saying, I am with you, saith the LORD. And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua, the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came, and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts their God, In the four and twentieth

day of the sixth month, in the | and said unto them. Let us build second year of Darius the king. with you; for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esar-haddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither. But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us. Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia. And in the reign of Abasuerus, in the beginning of his reign, wrote

they unto him an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem.

Ezra v, 3-11, 13, 17. At the same time came to them Tatnai, governor on this side the river, and Shethar-boznai, and their companions, and said thus unto them, Who hath commanded you to build this house, and to make up this wall? Then said we unto them after this manner, What are the names of the men that make this building? But the eye of their God was upon the elders of the Jews, that they could not cause them to cease, till the matter came to Darius: and then they returned answer by letter concerning this matter. The copy of the letter that Tatnai, governor on this

Haggai ii, 2-4, 15, 16, 18, 19. Speak now to Zerubbabel the son

of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying, Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing? Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts. And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in those days were, when one came the temple of the LORD; Since to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the press fat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty. Consider now from this day and upward from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD's temple was laid, consider it. Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the figtree, and the pomegranate, and the olive-tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.

Zech. iv, 9, 10. The hands of Zerubabbel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. For who hath de-side the river, and Shethar-boznai, spised the day of small things? and his companions the Apharfor they shall rejoice, and shall sachites, which were on this side see the plummet in the hand of the river, sent unto Darius the Zerubbabel with those seven; they king: They sent a letter unto are the eyes of the LORD, which him, wherein was written thus; run to and fro through the whole Unto Darius the king, all peace. earth. Be it known unto the king, that we

Then asked we those elders, and said unto them thus, Who commanded you to build this house, and to make up these walls? We asked their names also, to certify thee, that we might write the names of the men that were the chief of them. And thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house Ezra iv, 1--6. Now, when the that was builded these many adversaries of Judah and Ben-years ago, which a great king of jamin heard that the children of Israel builded and set up. But in the captivity builded the temple the first year of Cyrus the king unto the LORD God of Israel; of Babylon, the same king Cyrus Then they came to Zerubbabel, made a decree to build this house and to the chief of the fathers, of God.

OBSTACLES.

Zech. viii, 9, 10. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built. For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beast; neither was there any peace to him that went out or came in because of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbour.

ITS PURIFICATION BY JESUS. Mark xi, 15, 16. And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold doves; And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

Luke xix, 45, 46. And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

John ii, 15. And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables.

for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house. And the chamber, whose prospect is toward the north, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the sons of Zadok, among the sons of Levi, which come near to the Loup to minister unto him. So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an hundred cubits broad, four-square; and the altar that was before the house. And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each post of the porch, five cubits on this side. and five cubits on that side: and the breadth of the gate was three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that side. The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven cubits; and he brought me by the steps where-hind by they went up to it: and there were pillars by the posts, one on this side,and another on that side.

round about it ras fifty cubits ong, and five and twenty cubits road. And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits Long, and five cubits broad: And he arches thereof were toward The outer court; and palm-trees rere upon the posts thereof; and the going up to it had eight steps. And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he measured the gate according to these measures. And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, cere according to these measures: and there were windows therein, and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and twenty cubits broad. And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm-trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps. And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according to these measures; The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and twenty cubits. And the posts thereof were toward the outer court; and palm-trees were upon the posts thereof on this side, and on that side: and the going up to it had eight steps. And the chambers, and the entries thereof, were by the posts of the gates, where they washed the burntoffering. And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt-offering, and the sin-offering, and the trespass-offering. And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was at the porch of the gate, were two tables. Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side, by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices. And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt-offering, of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit high: whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt-offering and the sacrifice. And within were hooks, an hand-broad, fastened round about: and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering. And without the Inner gate were the chambers of the singers in the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate, and their prospect was toward the south; one at the side of the east gate having the prospect toward the north. And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward the south, is

bers were toward the place that
was left, one door toward the
north, and another door toward
the south: and the breadth of the
place that was left was five cubits
round about. Now the building
before the separate
that was
place, at the end toward the west,
was seventy cubits broad; and the
wall of the building tras five cu-
bits thick round about, and the
length thereof ninety cubits. So
he measured the house, an hun-
dred cubits long; and the separate
place, and the building, with the
walls thereof, an hundred cubits
long; Also the breadth of the face
of the house, and of the separate
place toward the east, an hundred
cubits. And he measured the
length of the building over against
the separate place which was be-

it, and the galleries thereof on the one side, and on the other side, an hundred cubits, with the. inner temple, and the porches of the court; The door-posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round about on their three stories, over against the door, ceiled with wood round about, and from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were covered; To that above the door, even unto the inner house and without, and by all the wall round about, within and without, by measure. And it was made with cherubims and palm-trees, so that a palm-tree was between a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had two faces; So that the face of a man was toward the palm-tree on the one side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm-tree on the other side: it was made through all the house round about. From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palm-trees made, and on the wall of the temple. The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the other. The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length thereof two cubits; and the corners thereof, and the length thereof, and the walls thereof, were of wood: and he said unto me, This is the table that is before the LORD. And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors. And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves; two leaves tor the one door, and two leaves for the other door. And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubims and palm-trees, like as were made upon the walls; and there were thick planks upon the face of the porch without. And there were narrow windows and palm-trees on the ore side and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the side-chambers of the house, and thick planks.

Ezek. xli, 1-7, 9--26. Afterward he brought me to the temple, and measured the posts, six cubits broad on the one side, and six cubits broad on the other side, which was the breadth of the tabernacle. And the breadth of the door was ten cubits; and the sides of the door were five cubits on the one side, and five cubits on the other side: and he measured the length thereof, forty cubits, and the breadth, twenty cubits, Then went he inward, and measured the post of the door two cubits, and the door six cnbits, and the breadth of the door seven cubits. So he measured the length thereof, twenty cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits, before the temple; and he said unto me, This is the most holy place. After he measured the wall of the house six cubits; and the breadth of every side-chamber four cubits, round about the house on every side. And the side-chambers cere three, one over another, and thirty in order, and they entered into the wall which was of the house for the side-chambers roundabout, that they might have hold, but they had not hold in the wall of the house. And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side-chambers; for the winding abont of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst. The thickness of the wall, which was for the side-chamber without, was five cubits; and that which was left was the place of the sidechambers that were within. And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits round about the house on every side. And the doors of the side-chain

Then he brought me forth into the outer court,theway toward the north; and he brought me into the chamber that was over against the separate place, and which was before the building toward the north. Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and the breadth was fifty cubits. Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and over against the pavement which was for the outer court, was gallery against galleryin three stories. And before the chambers was a walk of ten cubits breadth inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north.

Now, when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it round about. He measured the east side with the measuring-reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring-reed round about. He measured the north side, five hundred
