    English Standard Version

    The Proclamation of Cyrus
    1In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing:

    2“Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. 3Whoever is among you of all his people, may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and rebuild the house of the LORD, the God of Israel—he is the God who is in Jerusalem. 4And let each survivor, in whatever place he sojourns, be assisted by the men of his place with silver and gold, with goods and with beasts, besides freewill offerings for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.”

    Many many centuries later, we observe that good leadership comes from God's wisdom.

    @amanpour Your bias towards Israel is quite alarming March 12, 2015. It’s a shame that you and your guests tried to establish a correlation between abuse of women in Saudi Arabia and Israel/Palestine crisis. How on earth is that related? Must we blame Israel for everything? It almost seems we are trying to blame Israel for every bad thing going on in the world today. Does this mean that we never had wars before 1948? To think that you of all people revealed the ancient Cyrus Cylinder which clearly states that Jerusalem belongs to Israel makes this ironic #Real Shame #disappointed

    yes, this does show that Israel has long belonged to the Israelites, at least as far back as Nebuchadnezzor and Cyrus. I am thinking that the Kurds are also Persian descent, and, whereas Iran was taken over by Muslims, the Kurds resisted better, even if they had to move on.
