Illegally Stopped Work; Beginning Again

Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them.
Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets of God helping them.  At the same time came to them Tatnai, governor on this side the river, and Shetharboznai, and their companions, and said thus unto them, “Who hath commanded you to build this house, and to make up this wall?”
Then said we unto them after this manner, “What are the names of the men that make this building?”  But the eye of their God was upon the elders of the Jews, that they could not cause them to cease, till the matter came to Darius: and then they returned answer by letter concerning this matter.  Ezra 5:1-5
