Ezra 7:28 – Ezra’s Thanksgiving

Ezra praised God that the King of Persia (Iran/Iraq) had greatly blessed the Jews, encouraging them to depart so they could rebuild Jerusalem.

Ezra’s Thanksgiving

God put into the Persian king’s heart
to restore the Lord’s House, for a start.
Plus, showed mercy to Jews,
giving them the good news
that to Jru-salem they could depart.

Paul too wanted to depart, but the Lord thought it better that he stay here on earth to teach others Philippians 1:21-24.
