Bible in 90 Days - Day 34

I have arrived at the period of the captivities. Today's reading covered 2 Chronicles 36 through Ezra 10. That's all of Ezra.

Most of the reading was about the rebuilding of the temple. Were they allowed to build the temple or weren't they? Was the king going to allow the Israelites to rebuild the temple or was a group of naysayers going to convince the king that Israel would rebel against him once the project was complete?

The story summed up as follows:

And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia
Ezra 6:14.
