Bible: Ezra 7:6-10

7:6 This Ezra is the one who came up from Babylon. He was a scribe who was skilled in the law of Moses which the Lord God of Israel had given. The king supplied him with everything he requested, for the hand of the Lord his God was on him. 7:7 In the seventh year of King Artaxerxes, Ezra brought 1  up to Jerusalem 2  some of the Israelites and some of the priests, the Levites, the attendants, the gatekeepers, and the temple servants. 7:8 He entered Jerusalem in the fifth month of the seventh year of the king. 7:9 On the first day of the first month he had determined to make 3  the ascent from Babylon, and on the first day of the fifth month he arrived at Jerusalem, 4  for the good hand of his God was on him. 7:10 Now Ezra had dedicated himself 5  to the study of the law of the Lord, to its observance, and to teaching 6  its statutes and judgments in Israel.
