See commentary on Ezra 5:5-17.


Ezra 5:13

_ _ Cyrus the king ... made a decree — The Jews were perfectly warranted according to the principles of the Persian government to proceed with the building in virtue of Cyrus’ edict. For everywhere a public decree is considered as remaining in force until it is revoked but the “laws of the Medes and Persians changed not” [Daniel 6:8, Daniel 6:12, Daniel 6:15].
