These are my thoughts, please share yours.

1 These verses show Erzaís lineage. Ezra was sent by the king because he was his cupbearer and was trusted but was sent by God because of his heart and who he was.

2-5 We see that he is in the line of the high priests which meant that the temple was where he served and he could go into the holy of holies. God chooses us because who we are as Christians we are chosen because we are Christís.

6 Ezra was a scribe this could be most likely because he wanted to serve but didnít have the temple to serve at anymore. When we have a heart of service God will honor that if we wait for Him to lead. So now by the kingís hand the Lord has opened the door for the temple to be rebuilt.
