Ezra declared that anyone married to a “foreign” woman–anyone not of clear Jewish decent–must divorce her immediately and disown any children they might have together. The names of such sinners were recorded for infamy.

 

So that’s Ezra….Coming up, we have the brief memoir of another minor bureaucrat in the Persian empire, Nehemiah.
