    Definitions for Ezra 1:4

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezra 1:4

    Whosoever remaineth in any place - Every one was at liberty to go, but none was obliged to go. Thus their attachment to God was tried; he whose heart was right with God went; he who was comfortably settled in Babylon, might go if he chose. Those who did not go, were commanded to assist their brethren who went.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezra 1:4

    Let the men of his place help him - i. e., "Let the pagan population help him" (see Ezra 1:6).

    The freewill offering - Probably that made by Cyrus himself Ezra 1:7-11.
