The place mentioned in Ezra 6:1 where records of the king's decrees and actions were kept. The archives were kept sometimes in the royal treasury ( Ezra 5:17 ) or perhaps in the Temple. Jeremiah's scroll (Jeremiah 36:20-26 ) and the scroll of the law (2 Kings 22:8-9 ) were probably kept in such an archive. The records pertaining to the reigns of the kings of Judah and Israel were probably also kept in archives of this kind. Genealogical records may have been stored in the archives (Ezra 4:15 ).
