Ezra 10

When the priest Ezra traveled to Jerusalem to enforce the Law, he was dismayed to discover  Israeli men had married foreign women and had children with them. This racial intermarriage was a terrible sin, so Ezra convened a meeting of all the men in the land and commanded them to separate themselves from any foreign wives and children. The crowd chanted in approval. Soon they had compiled a list of all the guilty men, and so the women and children were “sent away.”
