And they erected the altar in its place, for all the peoples of the land were hostile to them and were stronger than they; and they offered sacrifices at the proper times and burnt offerings to the Lord morning and evening., They kept the feast of booths, as it is commanded in the law, and offered the proper sacrifices every day,, and thereafter the continual offerings and sacrifices on sabbaths and at new moons and at all the consecrated feasts., And all who had made any vow to God began to offer sacrifices to God, from the new moon of the seventh month, though the temple of God was not yet built., And they gave money to the masons and the carpenters, and food and drink, and carts to the Sidonians and the Tyrians, to bring cedar logs from Lebanon and convey them in rafts to the harbor of Joppa, according to the decree which they had in writing from Cyrus king of the Persians.,In the second year after their coming to the temple of God in Jerusalem, in the second month, Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak made a beginning, together with their brethren and the Levitical priests and all who had come to Jerusalem from the captivity;, and they laid the foundation of the temple of God on the new moon of the second month in the second year after they came to Judea and Jerusalem., And they appointed the Levites who were twenty or more years of age to have charge of the work of the Lord.

So the builders built the temple of the Lord., And the priests stood arrayed in their garments, with musical instruments and trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with cymbals,, praising the Lord and blessing him, according to the directions of David king of Israel;, and they sang hymns, giving thanks to the Lord, because his goodness and his glory are for ever upon all Israel., And all the people sounded trumpets and shouted with a great shout, praising the Lord for the erection of the house of the Lord., Some of the Levitical priests and heads of fathers houses, old men who had seen the former house, came to the building of this one with outcries and loud weeping,, while many came with trumpets and a joyful noise,, so that the people could not hear the trumpets because of the weeping of the people. For the multitude sounded the trumpets loudly, so that the sound was heard afar;, and when the enemies of the tribe of Judah and Benjamin heard it, they came to find out what the sound of the trumpets meant., And they learned that those who had returned from captivity were building the temple for the Lord God of Israel., So they approached Zerubbabel and Jeshua and the heads of the fathers houses and said to them, "We will build with you., For we obey your Lord just as you do and we have been sacrificing to him ever since the days of Esarhaddon king of the Assyrians, who brought us here.", But Zerubbabel and Jeshua and the heads of the fathers houses in Israel said to them, "You have nothing to do with us in building the house for the Lord our God,, for we alone will build it for the Lord of Israel, as Cyrus the king of the Persians has commanded us.", But the peoples of the land pressed hard upon those in Judea, cut off their supplies, and hindered their building;, and by plots and demagoguery and uprisings they prevented the completion of the building as long as King Cyrus lived. And they were kept from building for two years, until the reign of Darius.

5.5. וְעֵין אֱלָהֲהֹם הֲוָת עַל־שָׂבֵי יְהוּדָיֵא וְלָא־בַטִּלוּ הִמּוֹ עַד־טַעְמָא לְדָרְיָוֶשׁ יְהָךְ וֶאֱדַיִן יְתִיבוּן נִשְׁתְּוָנָא עַל־דְּנָה׃ 5.5.

7. Mishnah, Yadayim, 3.5 (1st cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

3.5. A scroll on which the writing has become erased and eighty-five letters remain, as many as are in the section beginning, \"And it came to pass when the ark set forward\" (Numbers 11:35-36) defiles the hands. A single sheet on which there are written eighty-five letters, as many as are in the section beginning, \"And it came to pass when the ark set forward\", defiles the hands. All the Holy Scriptures defile the hands. The Song of Songs and Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) defile the hands. Rabbi Judah says: the Song of Songs defiles the hands, but there is a dispute about Kohelet. Rabbi Yose says: Kohelet does not defile the hands, but there is a dispute about the Song of Songs. Rabbi Shimon says: [the ruling about] Kohelet is one of the leniencies of Bet Shammai and one of the stringencies of Bet Hillel. Rabbi Shimon ben Azzai said: I have received a tradition from the seventy-two elders on the day when they appointed Rabbi Elazar ben Azariah head of the academy that the Song of Songs and Kohelet defile the hands. Rabbi Akiba said: Far be it! No man in Israel disputed that the Song of Songs [saying] that it does not defile the hands. For the whole world is not as worthy as the day on which the Song of Songs was given to Israel; for all the writings are holy but the Song of Songs is the holy of holies. If they had a dispute, they had a dispute only about Kohelet. Rabbi Yoha ben Joshua the son of the father-in-law of Rabbi Akiva said in accordance with the words of Ben Azzai: so they disputed and so they reached a decision."
