This is the copy of the letter that they sent unto him, even unto Artaxerxes the H4430; Thy servants the men on this side the river, and at such a time.


Be it known unto the H4430, that the Jews which came up from thee to us are come unto Jerusalem, building the rebellious and the bad city, and have set up the walls thereof, and joined the foundations.


Be it known now unto the H4430, that, if this city be builded, and the walls set up again, then will they not pay toll, tribute, and custom, and so thou shalt endamage the revenue of the H4430s.


Now because we have maintenance from the H4430's palace, and it was not meet for us to see the H4430's dishonour, therefore have we sent and certified the H4430;


That search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers: so shalt thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto H4430s and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time: for which cause was this city destroyed.


We certify the H4430 that, if this city be builded again, and the walls thereof set up, by this means thou shalt have no portion on this side the river.

And I commanded, and search hath been made, and it is found that this city of old time hath made insurrection against H4430s, and that rebellion and sedition have been made therein.


There have been mighty H4430s also over Jerusalem, which have ruled over all countries beyond the river; and toll, tribute, and custom, was paid unto them.
