Joy and weeping mingled
The religious ceremonies recommence, after a 7 month settling in period. They are wary of what surrounding people will think, but are compelled to carry on anyway. The use an altar similar to the one Moses had.
The foundations of the new temple are laid, with the cry that God is good and his love endures forever, amid joy and weeping. The weeping is from those who remember the old temple. They are mourning what happened, letting good down and bring exiled, or sad because the new one will not be as grand. In the distance the sounds are not distinguishable.
Nothing more to be said about the poignancy of that. God is good, his love does endure, and life, even within his plan for it, is sometimes sucky.
