Ezra 8:35 & 36

"Then the exiles who had returned from captivity sacrificed burnt offerings to the God of Israel: twelve bulls for all Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven male lambs and, as a sin offering, twelve male goats. All this was a burnt offering to the Lord. They also delivered the king's orders to the royal satraps and to the governors of Trans-Euphrates, who then gave assistance to the people and to the house of God." NIV translation

The entire assembly then presented the sacrifices to God for their sins. The king's orders were passed on to the government leaders and they obeyed by assisting in the provision for the temple.
