Esther 8

On that day
<03117>
did the king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>
give
<05414> (8804)
the house
<01004>
of Haman
<02001>
the Jews
<03064>_'
enemy
<06887> (8802)
unto Esther
<0635>
the queen
<04436>_.
And Mordecai
<04782>
came
<0935> (8804)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_;
for Esther
<0635>
had told
<05046> (8689)
what he [was] unto her.
And the king
<04428>
took off
<05493> (8686)
his ring
<02885>_,
which he had taken
<05674> (8689)
from Haman
<02001>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
it unto Mordecai
<04782>_.
And Esther
<0635>
set
<07760> (8799)
Mordecai
<04782>
over the house
<01004>
of Haman
<02001>_.
And Esther
<0635>
spake
<01696> (8762)
yet again
<03254> (8686)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
and fell down
<05307> (8799)
at
<06440>
his feet
<07272>_,
and besought
<02603> (8691)
him with tears
<01058> (8799)
to put away
<05674> (8687)
the mischief
<07451>
of Haman
<02001>
the Agagite
<091>_,
and his device
<04284>
that he had devised
<02803> (8804)
against the Jews
<03064>_.
{and besought...: Heb. and she wept, and besought him}
Then the king
<04428>
held out
<03447> (8686)
the golden
<02091>
sceptre
<08275>
toward Esther
<0635>_.
So Esther
<0635>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
If it please
<02896>
the king
<04428>_,
and if I have found
<04672> (8804)
favour
<02580>
in his sight
<06440>_,
and the thing
<01697>
[seem] right
<03787> (8804)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
and I [be] pleasing
<02896>
in his eyes
<05869>_,
let it be written
<03789> (8735)
to reverse
<07725> (8687)
the letters
<05612>
devised
<04284>
by Haman
<02001>
the son
<01121>
of Hammedatha
<04099>
the Agagite
<091>_,
which he wrote
<03789> (8804)
to destroy
<06> (8763)
the Jews
<03064>
which [are] in all the king's
<04428>
provinces
<04082>_:
{devised: Heb. the device} {which he...: or, who wrote}
For how
<0349>
can I endure
<03201> (8799)
to see
<07200> (8804)
the evil
<07451>
that shall come
<04672> (8799)
unto my people
<05971>_?
or how
<0349>
can I endure
<03201> (8799)
to see
<07200> (8804)
the destruction
<013>
of my kindred
<04138>_?
{endure...: Heb. be able that I may see}
Then the king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Esther
<0635>
the queen
<04436>
and to Mordecai
<04782>
the Jew
<03064>_,
Behold, I have given
<05414> (8804)
Esther
<0635>
the house
<01004>
of Haman
<02001>_,
and him they have hanged
<08518> (8804)
upon the gallows
<06086>_,
because he laid
<07971> (8804)
his hand
<03027>
upon the Jews
<03064>_.
Write
<03789> (8798)
ye also for the Jews
<03064>_,
as it liketh
<02896>
you
<05869>_,
in the king's
<04428>
name
<08034>_,
and seal
<02856> (8798)
[it] with the king's
<04428>
ring
<02885>_:
for the writing
<03791>
which is written
<03789> (8737)
in the king's
<04428>
name
<08034>_,
and sealed
<02856> (8737)
with the king's
<04428>
ring
<02885>_,
may no man reverse
<07725> (8687)_.
Then were the king's
<04428>
scribes
<05608> (8802)
called
<07121> (8735)
at that time
<06256>
in the third
<07992>
month
<02320>_,
that [is], the month
<02320>
Sivan
<05510>_,
on the three
<07969>
and twentieth
<06242>
[day] thereof; and it was written
<03789> (8735)
according to all that Mordecai
<04782>
commanded
<06680> (8765)
unto the Jews
<03064>_,
and to the lieutenants
<0323>_,
and the deputies
<06346>
and rulers
<08269>
of the provinces
<04082>
which [are] from India
<01912>
unto Ethiopia
<03568>_,
an hundred
<03967>
twenty
<06242>
and seven
<07651>
provinces
<04082>_,
unto every province
<04082>
according to the writing
<03791>
thereof, and unto every people
<05971>
after their language
<03956>_,
and to the Jews
<03064>
according to their writing
<03791>_,
and according to their language
<03956>_.
And he wrote
<03789> (8799)
in the king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>_'
name
<08034>_,
and sealed
<02856> (8799)
[it] with the king's
<04428>
ring
<02885>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
letters
<05612>
by
<03027>
posts
<07323> (8801)
on horseback
<05483>_,
[and] riders
<07392> (8802)
on mules
<07409>_,
camels
<0327>_,
[and] young
<01121>
dromedaries
<07424>_:
Wherein the king
<04428>
granted
<05414> (8804)
the Jews
<03064>
which [were] in every city
<05892>
to gather themselves together
<06950> (8736)_,
and to stand
<05975> (8800)
for their life
<05315>_,
to destroy
<08045> (8687)_,
to slay
<02026> (8800)_,
and to cause to perish
<06> (8763)_,
all the power
<02428>
of the people
<05971>
and province
<04082>
that would assault
<06696> (8802)
them, [both] little ones
<02945>
and women
<0802>_,
and [to take] the spoil
<07998>
of them for a prey
<0962> (8800)_,
Upon one
<0259>
day
<03117>
in all the provinces
<04082>
of king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>_,
[namely], upon the thirteenth
<07969> <06240>
[day] of the twelfth
<08147> <06240>
month
<02320>_,
which [is] the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>_.
The copy
<06572>
of the writing
<03791>
for a commandment
<01881>
to be given
<05414> (8736)
in every province
<04082>
[was] published
<01540> (8803)
unto all people
<05971>_,
and that the Jews
<03064>
should be ready
<06264> (8675) <06259>
against that day
<03117>
to avenge
<05358> (8736)
themselves on their enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
{published: Heb. revealed}
[So] the posts
<07323> (8801)
that rode
<07392> (8802)
upon mules
<07409>
[and] camels
<0327>
went out
<03318> (8804)_,
being hastened
<0926> (8794)
and pressed on
<01765> (8803)
by the king's
<04428>
commandment
<01697>_.
And the decree
<01881>
was given
<05414> (8738)
at Shushan
<07800>
the palace
<01002>_.
And Mordecai
<04782>
went out
<03318> (8804)
from the presence
<06440>
of the king
<04428>
in royal
<04438>
apparel
<03830>
of blue
<08504>
and white
<02353>_,
and with a great
<01419>
crown
<05850>
of gold
<02091>_,
and with a garment
<08509>
of fine linen
<0948>
and purple
<0713>_:
and the city
<05892>
of Shushan
<07800>
rejoiced
<06670> (8804)
and was glad
<08056>_.
{blue: or, violet}
The Jews
<03064>
had light
<0219>_,
and gladness
<08057>_,
and joy
<08342>_,
and honour
<03366>_.
And in every province
<04082>_,
and in every city
<05892>_,
whithersoever
<04725>
the king's
<04428>
commandment
<01697>
and his decree
<01881>
came
<05060> (8688)_,
the Jews
<03064>
had joy
<08057>
and gladness
<08342>_,
a feast
<04960>
and a good
<02896>
day
<03117>_.
And many
<07227>
of the people
<05971>
of the land
<0776>
became Jews
<03054> (8693)_;
for the fear
<06343>
of the Jews
<03064>
fell
<05307> (8804)
upon them.
