Bible: Ezra 3:8-10; 5:16
3:8 In the second year after they had come to the temple of God in Jerusalem, 1 in the second month, Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak initiated the work, 2 along with the rest of their associates, 3 the priests and the Levites, and all those who were coming to Jerusalem from the exile. They appointed 4 the Levites who were at least twenty years old 5 to take charge of the work on the
Lord’s temple. 3:9 So Jeshua appointed both his sons and his relatives, 6 Kadmiel and his sons (the sons of Yehudah 7 ), to take charge of the workers in the temple of God, along with the sons of Henadad, their sons, and their relatives 8 the Levites. 3:10 When the builders established the Lord’s temple, the priests, ceremonially attired and with their clarions, 9 and the Levites (the sons of Asaph) with their cymbals, stood to praise the Lord according to the instructions left by 10 King David of Israel. 11
5:16 Mahalalel lived 830 years after he became the father of Jared, and he had other sons and daughters.
