Blessed be Yahweh the God of our fathers, who has put such a thing as this into the king’s heart, to beautify the house of Yahweh that is in Jerusalem, Bible see other translations

“Blessed be Yahweh.” The speaker abruptly and without introduction switches from the Persian king to Ezra. The reader is supposed to notice the change and understand the text. This kind of abrupt switch occurs quite frequently in the Bible and in certain contexts can be quite confusing.

“the house of Yahweh.” The Temple.

Commentary for: Ezra 7:27
