1 When the seventh month came, and the sons of Israel were in the towns, the people gathered as one man to Jerusalem. Worship begins again. Ez.3.1-6וַיִּגַּע הַחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי וּבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בֶּעָרִים ס וַיֵּאָסְפוּ הָעָם כְּאִישׁ אֶחָד אֶל־יְרוּשָׁלִָם׃ ס
2 Then arose Jeshua the son of Jozadak, with his fellow priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel with his kinsmen, and they built the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings upon it, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God.  וַיָּקָם יֵשׁוּעַ בֶּן־יֹוצָדָק וְאֶחָיו הַכֹּהֲנִים וּזְרֻבָּבֶל בֶּן־שְׁאַלְתִּיאֵל וְאֶחָיו וַיִּבְנוּ אֶת־מִזְבַּח אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לְהַעֲלֹות עָלָיו עֹלֹות כַּכָּתוּב בְּתֹורַת מֹשֶׁה אִישׁ־הָאֱלֹהִים׃
3 They set the altar in its place, for fear was upon them because of the peoples of the lands, and they offered burnt offerings upon it to Yahweh, burnt offerings morning and evening.  וַיָּכִינוּ הַמִּזְבֵּחַ עַל־מְכֹונֹתָיו כִּי בְּאֵימָה עֲלֵיהֶם מֵעַמֵּי הָאֲרָצֹות {כ= וַיַּעַל} {ק= וַיַּעֲלוּ } עָלָיו עֹלֹות לַיהוָה עֹלֹות לַבֹּקֶר וְלָעָרֶב׃
4 And they kept the feast of booths, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number according to the ordinance, as each day required,  וַיַּעֲשׂוּ אֶת־חַג הַסֻּכֹּות כַּכָּתוּב וְעֹלַת יֹום בְּיֹום בְּמִסְפָּר כְּמִשְׁפַּט דְּבַר־יֹום בְּיֹומֹו׃
5 and after that the continual burnt offerings, the offerings at the new moon and at all the appointed feasts of Yahweh, and the offerings of every one who made a freewill offering to Yahweh.  וְאַחֲרֵיכֵן עֹלַת תָּמִיד וְלֶחֳדָשִׁים וּלְכָל־מֹועֲדֵי יְהוָה הַמְקֻדָּשִׁים וּלְכֹל מִתְנַדֵּב נְדָבָה לַיהוָה׃
6 From the first day of the seventh month they began to offer burnt offerings to Yahweh. But the foundation of the temple of Yahweh was not yet laid.  מִיֹּום אֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ הַשְּׁבִיעִי הֵחֵלּוּ לְהַעֲלֹות עֹלֹות לַיהוָה וְהֵיכַל יְהוָה לֹא יֻסָּד׃
7 So they gave money to the masons and the carpenters, and food, drink, and oil to the Sidonians and the Tyrians to bring cedar trees from Lebanon to the sea, to Joppa, according to the grant which they had from Cyrus king of Persia. Building of the second temple begins. Ez.3.7-13וַיִּתְּנוּ־כֶסֶף לַחֹצְבִים וְלֶחָרָשִׁים וּמַאֲכָל וּמִשְׁתֶּה וָשֶׁמֶן לַצִּדֹנִים וְלַצֹּרִים לְהָבִיא עֲצֵי אֲרָזִים מִן־הַלְּבָנֹון אֶל־יָם יָפֹוא כְּרִשְׁיֹון כֹּורֶשׁ מֶלֶךְ־פָּרַס עֲלֵיהֶם׃ ף
8 Now in the second year of their coming to the house of God at Jerusalem, in the second month, Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak made a beginning, together with the rest of their brethren, the priests and the Levites and all who had come to Jerusalem from the captivity. They appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward, to have the oversight of the work of the house of Yahweh.  וּבַשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית לְבֹואָם אֶל־בֵּית הָאֱלֹהִים לִירוּשָׁלִַם בַּחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי הֵחֵלּוּ זְרֻבָּבֶל בֶּן־שְׁאַלְתִּיאֵל וְיֵשׁוּעַ בֶּן־יֹוצָדָק וּשְׁאָר אֲחֵיהֶם הַכֹּהֲנִים וְהַלְוִיִּם וְכָל־הַבָּאִים מֵהַשְּׁבִי יְרוּשָׁלִַם וַיַּעֲמִידוּ אֶת־הַלְוִיִּם מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה לְנַצֵּחַ עַל־מְלֶאכֶת בֵּית־יְהוָה׃ ף
9 And Jeshua with his sons and his kinsmen, and Kadmiel and his sons, the sons of Judah, together took the oversight of the workmen in the house of God, along with the sons of Henadad and the Levites, their sons and kinsmen.  וַיַּעֲמֹד יֵשׁוּעַ בָּנָיו וְאֶחָיו קַדְמִיאֵל וּבָנָיו בְּנֵי־יְהוּדָה כְּאֶחָד לְנַצֵּחַ עַל־עֹשֵׂה הַמְּלָאכָה בְּבֵית הָאֱלֹהִים ס בְּנֵי חֵנָדָד בְּנֵיהֶם וַאֲחֵיהֶם הַלְוִיִּם׃
10 And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of Yahweh, the priests in their vestments came forward with trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with cymbals, to praise Yahweh, according to the directions of David king of Israel;  וְיִסְּדוּ הַבֹּנִים אֶת־הֵיכַל יְהוָה וַיַּעֲמִידוּ הַכֹּהֲנִים מְלֻבָּשִׁים בַּחֲצֹצְרֹות וְהַלְוִיִּם בְּנֵי־אָסָף בַּמְצִלְתַּיִם לְהַלֵּל אֶת־יְהוָה עַל־יְדֵי דָּוִיד מֶלֶךְ־יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
11 and they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to Yahweh,

"For he is good,
for his steadfast love endures for ever toward Israel." And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised Yahweh, because the foundation of the house of Yahweh was laid.

 וַיַּעֲנוּ בְּהַלֵּל וּבְהֹודֹת לַיהוָה כִּי טֹוב כִּי־לְעֹולָם חַסְדֹּו עַל־יִשְׂרָאֵל וְכָל־הָעָם הֵרִיעוּ תְרוּעָה גְדֹולָה בְהַלֵּל לַיהוָה עַל הוּסַד בֵּית־יְהוָה׃ ס
12 But many of the priests and Levites and heads of fathers' houses, old men who had seen the first house, wept with a loud voice when they saw the foundation of this house being laid, though many shouted aloud for joy;  וְרַבִּים מֵהַכֹּהֲנִים וְהַלְוִיִּם וְרָאשֵׁי הָאָבֹות הַזְּקֵנִים אֲשֶׁר רָאוּ אֶת־הַבַּיִת הָרִאשֹׁון בְּיָסְדֹו זֶה הַבַּיִת בְּעֵינֵיהֶם בֹּכִים בְּקֹול גָּדֹול וְרַבִּים בִּתְרוּעָה בְשִׂמְחָה לְהָרִים קֹול׃
13 so that the people could not distinguish the sound of the joyful shout from the sound of the people's weeping, for the people shouted with a great shout, and the sound was heard afar.  וְאֵין הָעָם מַכִּירִים קֹול תְּרוּעַת הַשִּׂמְחָה לְקֹול בְּכִי הָעָם כִּי הָעָם מְרִיעִים תְּרוּעָה גְדֹולָה וְהַקֹּול נִשְׁמַע עַד־לְמֵרָחֹוק׃ ף

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
