Ezra 10:7-8, The Proclamation is Issued Throughout Judah

Ezra with the leadership of Judah, issues a proclamation that all the Hebrew Babylonian Captivity Descendants must report in three days to Jerusalem.

Lets read the next two verses of Ezra 10,

V7 And they issued a proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem to all the descendants of the captivity, that they must gather at Jerusalem,
V8 and that whoever would not come within three days, according to the instructions of the leaders and elders, all his property would be confiscated, and he himself would be separated from the assembly of those from the captivity.

Ezra also issues a disclaimer for what will happen if the order is not followed. This will include a number of things; loss of estate and personal property; with excommunication from fellowship with The community of believers in Jerusalem for his contempt. This will all happen if after the time specified you don't show up for the meeting in Jerusalem.
