3:2 Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren
    the priests, and Zerubbabel the {b} son of Shealtiel, and
    his brethren, and builded the altar of the God of Israel, to
    offer burnt offerings thereon, as [it is] written in the law
    of Moses the man of God.

    (b) Meaning nephew, for he was the son of Pedaiah,
        1 Chronicles 3:19.

Ezra 3:3
3:3 And they set the altar upon {c} his bases; for fear [was]

    (c) In the place where Solomon had placed it.

Ezra 3:5
3:5 And afterward [offered] {d} the continual burnt offering,
    both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the LORD
    that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly
    offered a freewill offering unto the LORD.

    (d) That is, after the feast of tabernacles.

Ezra 3:8
3:8 Now in the second year of their coming unto the house of God
    at Jerusalem, in the {e} second month, began Zerubbabel the
    son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and the
    remnant of their brethren the priests and the Levites, and
    all they that were come out of the captivity unto Jerusalem;
    and appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward,
    to set forward the work of the house of the LORD.

Ezra 3:9
3:9 Then stood Jeshua {f} [with] his sons and his brethren,
    Kadmiel and his sons, the sons of Judah, together, to set
    forward the workmen in the house of God: the sons of
    Henadad, [with] their sons and their brethren the Levites.

    (f) They gave them exhortations and encouraged every man
        forward in the work.

Ezra 3:12
3:12 But many of the priests and Levites and chief of the
     fathers, [who were] ancient men, that had seen the first
     house, when the foundation of this house was laid before
     their eyes, {g} wept with a loud voice; and many shouted
     aloud for joy:

     (g) Because they saw that it was not nearly as glorious as
         the temple Solomon had built, nonetheless Aggeus
         comforted them and prophesied that it would be more
         beautiful than the first, meaning the spiritual temple,
         they who are the members of Christ's body.
