This book is the record of events occurring at the close of the Babylonian exile. It was at one time included in Nehemiah, the Jews regarding them as one volume. It consists of two principal divisions: (1.) The history of the first return of exiles, in the first year of Cyrus (B.C. 536), until the completion and dedication of the new temple, in the sixth year of Darius Hystapes (B.C. 515), ch. 1–6. From the close of the sixth to the opening of the seventh chapter there is a blank in the history of about sixty years. (2.) The history of the second return under Ezra, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes Longimanus, and of the events that took place at Jerusalem after Ezra’s arrival there (7–10). (Easton, M. G. (1893). In Easton’s Bible dictionary. New York: Harper & Brothers).
