New and Refreshed Appreciation of Priest/Prophet

What a declaration regarding Ezra:

Ezra 7:6 this Ezra came up from Babylon; and he was a skilled scribe in the Law of Moses, which the Lord God of Israel had given. The king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the Lord his God upon him.

G-D must have rejoiced in this man, this goodly priest to send him such help as listed in the following verse(especially the Nethinim):

Ezra 7:7 Some of the children of Israel, the priests, the Levites, the singers, the gatekeepers, and the Nethinim...

The key to Ezra's honorable place before the king and G-D is found at the end of this section of scripture:

Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach statues and ordinances in Israel.
