Chapter 9 45 Then took Esdras the book of the law before the multitude: for he sat honourably in the first place in the sight of them all.46 And when he opened the law, they stood all straight up. So Esdras blessed the Lord God most High, the God of hosts, Almighty.47 And all the people answered, Amen; and lifting up their hands they fell to the ground, and worshipped the Lord.48 Also Jesus, Anus, Sarabias, Adinus, Jacubus, Sabateas, Auteas, Maianeas, and Calitas, Asrias, and Joazabdus, and Ananias, Biatas, the Levites, taught the law of the Lord, making them withal to understand it.49 Then spake Attharates unto Esdras the chief priest. and reader, and to the Levites that taught the multitude, even to all, saying,50 This day is holy unto the Lord; (for they all wept when they heard the law:)51 Go then, and eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send part to them that have nothing;52 For this day is holy unto the Lord: and be not sorrowful; for the Lord will bring you to honour.53 So the Levites published all things to the people, saying, This day is holy to the Lord; be not sorrowful.54 Then went they their way, every one to eat and drink, and make merry, and to give part to them that had nothing, and to make great cheer;55 Because they understood the words wherein they were instructed, and for the which they had been assembled.
