Now viewing scripture range from the book of 1 Esdras chapter 8:78
through chapter 8:81...
78 And now in some measure hath mercy been shewed unto us from thee, O Lord, that there should be left us a root and a name in the place of thy sanctuary;
79 And to discover unto us a light in the house of the Lord our God, and to give us food in the time of our servitude.
80 Yea, when we were in bondage, we were not forsaken of our Lord; but he made us gracious before the kings of Persia, so that they gave us food;
81 Yea, and honoured the temple of our Lord, and raised up the desolate Sion, that they have given us a sure abiding in Jewry and Jerusalem.
