Ezra 4:21-22 King James Version (KJV)
21 Give ye now commandment to cause these men to cease, and that this city be not builded, until another commandment shall be given from me.
22 Take heed now that ye fail not to do this: why should damage grow to the hurt of the kings?

Ezra 4:21-22 Amplified Bible (AMP)

21 So, now issue a decree to make these men stop [work], so that this city is not rebuilt until a [new] command is issued by me. 22 Beware of being negligent in carrying out this matter. Why should damage increase to the detriment of the kings?

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

21 The king put a stop to building the temple, the problem he was not aware of is that it was God's will for the temple to be rebuilt. The king truly never had authority over God's house or God's people because they were always the Lord's. We as Christians are to follow the leaders of this world orders as long as it does not go against what God wants from us but thru all the leaders we trust in the Lord.

22 The king tells them to stop building because it is harmful to him and his kingdom, this was never their first priority but was only the king's priority. Building the temple was a good thing; the king could not understand this.

To be persecuted is to follow after Christ.
