“Let Us Help!”

Ezra 4:1, 2, “The enemies of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin heard that the people had come back to rebuild the temple of the Lord God of Israel. So they went to Zerubbabel and to the family leaders and said, ‘Let us help! Ever since King Esarhaddon of Assyria brought us here, we have worshiped your God and offered sacrifices to him’.” CEV

“Foreigners: People from foreign countries who had been captured by Assyrian and Babylonian kings and forced to settle in Palestine.” CEV Bible Notes

Interesting. The enemies of the Jews still are professing that they want to “help.”
