“Now let it be known to the king that the Jews who came up from you to us have gone to Jerusalem. They are rebuilding the rebellious and evil city, and are finishing the walls and repairing the foundations. Bible see other translations

“Now.” This “now” is pulled into this verse from the end of verse 11.
