Ezra 7-10

7 - Ezra the priest, descended from Aaron and skilled in the law, gets the king's support to take another group of Jews back to Jerusalem

8 - He gathers the group, finds no Levites, and sends to get some along. 18 come. He commits the gold and silver to the priests. They have no armed escort, but arrive safely

9 - Some officials tell Ezra that many have married foreign wives. Ezra publicly mourns and confesses this. God has shown mercy, but Israel has continued to sin

10 - Most of Israel agrees to put away their foreign wives. They gather in 3 days to do this, but there is heavy rain, so most people go home while the officials investigate. After 2 months it is taken care of
