EZRA 5:13-15

A (13) But in the first year of Cyrus the king of Babylon the same king Cyrus made a decree to build this house of God.

B (14) And the vessels also of gold and silver of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple that was in Jerusalem,

C (14) and brought them into the temple of Babylon,

D (14) those did Cyrus the king

C1 (14) take out of the temple of Babylon,

B1 (14, 15) and they were delivered unto one, whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had made governor; And said unto him, Take these vessels, go, carry them into the temple that is in Jerusalem,

A1 (15) and let the house of God be builded in his place.

Note:the central part emphasises Cyrus which reflects the emphasis in A where his name is repeated.
