Ezra 6:11-12 King James Version (KJV)
11 Also I have made a decree, that whosoever shall alter this word, let timber be pulled down from his house, and being set up, let him be hanged thereon; and let his house be made a dunghill for this.
12 And the God that hath caused his name to dwell there destroy all kings and people, that shall put to their hand to alter and to destroy this house of God which is at Jerusalem. I Darius have made a decree; let it be done with speed.

Ezra 6:11-12 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

11 I also issue a decree concerning any man who interferes with this directive:
Let a beam be torn from his house and raised up; he will be impaled on it, and his house will be made into a garbage dump because of this offense. 12 May the God who caused His name to dwell there overthrow any king or people who dares to harm or interfere with this house of God in Jerusalem. I, Darius, have issued the decree. Let it be carried out diligently.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

11 This would make the manís family homeless and have nothing not only would he be dead but would lose his legacy which at that time was very valued. To God against Godís word had greater results then this.

12 Now he is addressing the people not under his control. He is asking God to take care of the outside influence that he can not control. God wants us to trust Him to overthrow all the things and people that stand in between what He wants from us rather then us take care of it ourselves, but this often times what we do.
