Esther 9

Now in the twelfth
<08147> <06240>
month
<02320>_,
that [is], the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>_,
on the thirteenth
<07969> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the same, when the king's
<04428>
commandment
<01697>
and his decree
<01881>
drew near
<05060> (8689)
to be put in execution
<06213> (8736)_,
in the day
<03117>
that the enemies
<0341> (8802)
of the Jews
<03064>
hoped
<07663> (8765)
to have power
<07980> (8800)
over them, (though it was turned
<02015> (8736)
to the contrary, that the Jews
<03064>
had rule
<07980> (8799)
over them that hated
<08130> (8802)
them;)
The Jews
<03064>
gathered themselves together
<06950> (8738)
in their cities
<05892>
throughout all the provinces
<04082>
of the king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>_,
to lay
<07971> (8800)
hand
<03027>
on such as sought
<01245> (8764)
their hurt
<07451>_:
and no man
<0376>
could withstand
<05975> (8804)
them
<06440>_;
for the fear
<06343>
of them fell
<05307> (8804)
upon all people
<05971>_.
And all the rulers
<08269>
of the provinces
<04082>_,
and the lieutenants
<0323>_,
and the deputies
<06346>_,
and officers
<06213> (8802) <04399>
of the king
<04428>_,
helped
<05375> (8764)
the Jews
<03064>_;
because the fear
<06343>
of Mordecai
<04782>
fell
<05307> (8804)
upon them. {officers...: Heb. those which did the business that belonged to the king}
For Mordecai
<04782>
[was] great
<01419>
in the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_,
and his fame
<08089>
went out
<01980> (8802)
throughout all the provinces
<04082>_:
for this man
<0376>
Mordecai
<04782>
waxed
<01980> (8802)
greater and greater
<01419>_.
Thus the Jews
<03064>
smote
<05221> (8686)
all their enemies
<0341> (8802)
with the stroke
<04347>
of the sword
<02719>_,
and slaughter
<02027>_,
and destruction
<012>_,
and did
<06213> (8799)
what they would
<07522>
unto those that hated
<08130> (8802)
them. {what...: Heb. according to their will}
And in Shushan
<07800>
the palace
<01002>
the Jews
<03064>
slew
<02026> (8804)
and destroyed
<06> (8763)
five
<02568>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>_.
And Parshandatha
<06577>_,
and Dalphon
<01813>_,
and Aspatha
<0630>_,
And Poratha
<06334>_,
and Adalia
<0118>_,
and Aridatha
<0743>_,
And Parmashta
<06534>_,
and Arisai
<0747>_,
and Aridai
<0742>_,
and Vajezatha
<02055>_,
The ten
<06235>
sons
<01121>
of Haman
<02001>
the son
<01121>
of Hammedatha
<04099>_,
the enemy
<06887> (8802)
of the Jews
<03064>_,
slew
<02026> (8804)
they; but on the spoil
<0961>
laid
<07971> (8804)
they not their hand
<03027>_.
On that day
<03117>
the number
<04557>
of those that were slain
<02026> (8803)
in Shushan
<07800>
the palace
<01002>
was brought
<0935> (8804)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
{was...: Heb. came}
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Esther
<0635>
the queen
<04436>_,
The Jews
<03064>
have slain
<02026> (8804)
and destroyed
<06> (8763)
five
<02568>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
in Shushan
<07800>
the palace
<01002>_,
and the ten
<06235>
sons
<01121>
of Haman
<02001>_;
what have they done
<06213> (8804)
in the rest
<07605>
of the king's
<04428>
provinces
<04082>_?
now what [is] thy petition
<07596>_?
and it shall be granted
<05414> (8735)
thee: or what [is] thy request
<01246>
further
<05750>_?
and it shall be done
<06213> (8735)_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Esther
<0635>_,
If it please
<02896>
the king
<04428>_,
let it be granted
<05414> (8735)
to the Jews
<03064>
which [are] in Shushan
<07800>
to do
<06213> (8800)
to morrow
<04279>
also according unto this day's
<03117>
decree
<01881>_,
and let Haman's
<02001>
ten
<06235>
sons
<01121>
be hanged
<08518> (8799)
upon the gallows
<06086>_.
{let Haman's...: Heb. let men hang, etc}
And the king
<04428>
commanded
<0559> (8799)
it so to be done
<06213> (8736)_:
and the decree
<01881>
was given
<05414> (8735)
at Shushan
<07800>_;
and they hanged
<08518> (8804)
Haman's
<02001>
ten
<06235>
sons
<01121>_.
For the Jews
<03064>
that [were] in Shushan
<07800>
gathered themselves together
<06950> (8735)
on the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
day
<03117>
also of the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>_,
and slew
<02026> (8799)
three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
at Shushan
<07800>_;
but on the prey
<0961>
they laid
<07971> (8804)
not their hand
<03027>_.
But the other
<07605>
Jews
<03064>
that [were] in the king's
<04428>
provinces
<04082>
gathered themselves together
<06950> (8738)_,
and stood
<05975> (8800)
for their lives
<05315>_,
and had rest
<05118>
from their enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and slew
<02026> (8800)
of their foes
<08130> (8802)
seventy
<07657>
and five
<02568>
thousand
<0505>_,
but they laid
<07971> (8804)
not their hands
<03027>
on the prey
<0961>_,
On the thirteenth
<07969> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>_;
and on the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
day of the same rested
<05118>
they, and made
<06213> (8800)
it a day
<03117>
of feasting
<04960>
and gladness
<08057>_.
{of the same: Heb. in it}
But the Jews
<03064>
that [were] at Shushan
<07800>
assembled together
<06950> (8738)
on the thirteenth
<07969> <06240>
[day] thereof, and on the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
thereof; and on the fifteenth
<02568> <06240>
[day] of the same they rested
<05118>_,
and made
<06213> (8800)
it a day
<03117>
of feasting
<04960>
and gladness
<08057>_.
Therefore the Jews
<03064>
of the villages
<06521>_,
that dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in the unwalled
<06519>
towns
<05892>_,
made
<06213> (8802)
the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>
[a day of] gladness
<08057>
and feasting
<04960>_,
and a good
<02896>
day
<03117>_,
and of sending
<04916>
portions
<04490>
one
<0376>
to another
<07453>_.
And Mordecai
<04782>
wrote
<03789> (8799)
these things
<01697>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
letters
<05612>
unto all the Jews
<03064>
that [were] in all the provinces
<04082>
of the king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>_,
[both] nigh
<07138>
and far
<07350>_,
To stablish
<06965> (8763)
[this] among them, that they should keep
<06213> (8802)
the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>_,
and the fifteenth
<02568> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the same, yearly
<08141> <08141>_,
As the days
<03117>
wherein the Jews
<03064>
rested
<05117> (8804)
from their enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and the month
<02320>
which was turned
<02015> (8738)
unto them from sorrow
<03015>
to joy
<08057>_,
and from mourning
<060>
into a good
<02896>
day
<03117>_:
that they should make
<06213> (8800)
them days
<03117>
of feasting
<04960>
and joy
<08057>_,
and of sending
<04916>
portions
<04490>
one
<0376>
to another
<07453>_,
and gifts
<04979>
to the poor
<034>_.
And the Jews
<03064>
undertook
<06901> (8765)
to do
<06213> (8800)
as they had begun
<02490> (8689)_,
and as Mordecai
<04782>
had written
<03789> (8804)
unto them;
Because Haman
<02001>
the son
<01121>
of Hammedatha
<04099>_,
the Agagite
<091>_,
the enemy
<06887> (8802)
of all the Jews
<03064>_,
had devised
<02803> (8804)
against the Jews
<03064>
to destroy
<06> (8763)
them, and had cast
<05307> (8689)
Pur
<06332>_,
that [is], the lot
<01486>_,
to consume
<02000> (8800)
them, and to destroy
<06> (8763)
them; {consume: Heb. crush}
But when [Esther] came
<0935> (8800)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
he commanded
<0559> (8804)
by letters
<05612>
that his wicked
<07451>
device
<04284>_,
which he devised
<02803> (8804)
against the Jews
<03064>_,
should return
<07725> (8799)
upon his own head
<07218>_,
and that he and his sons
<01121>
should be hanged
<08518> (8804)
on the gallows
<06086>_.
{when...: Heb. when she came}
Wherefore they called
<07121> (8804)
these days
<03117>
Purim
<06332>
after the name
<08034>
of Pur
<06332>_.
Therefore for all the words
<01697>
of this letter
<0107>_,
and [of that] which they had seen
<07200> (8804)
concerning this matter
<03602>_,
and which had come
<05060> (8689)
unto them, {Pur: that is, Lot}
The Jews
<03064>
ordained
<06965> (8765)_,
and took
<06901> (8765)
upon them, and upon their seed
<02233>_,
and upon all such as joined
<03867> (8737)
themselves unto them, so as it should not fail
<05674> (8799)_,
that they would keep
<06213> (8802)
these two
<08147>
days
<03117>
according to their writing
<03791>_,
and according to their [appointed] time
<02165>
every year
<08141> <08141>_;
{fail: Heb. pass}
And [that] these days
<03117>
[should be] remembered
<02142> (8737)
and kept
<06213> (8737)
throughout
<01755>
every generation
<01755>_,
every family
<04940>_,
every province
<04082>_,
and every city
<05892>_;
and [that] these days
<03117>
of Purim
<06332>
should not fail
<05674> (8799)
from among
<08432>
the Jews
<03064>_,
nor the memorial
<02143>
of them perish
<05486> (8799)
from their seed
<02233>_.
{fail: Heb. pass} {perish: Heb. be ended}
Then Esther
<0635>
the queen
<04436>_,
the daughter
<01323>
of Abihail
<032>_,
and Mordecai
<04782>
the Jew
<03064>_,
wrote
<03789> (8799)
with all authority
<08633>_,
to confirm
<06965> (8763)
this second
<08145>
letter
<0107>
of Purim
<06332>_.
{authority: Heb. strength}
And he sent
<07971> (8799)
the letters
<05612>
unto all the Jews
<03064>_,
to the hundred
<03967>
twenty
<06242>
and seven
<07651>
provinces
<04082>
of the kingdom
<04438>
of Ahasuerus
<0325>_,
[with] words
<01697>
of peace
<07965>
and truth
<0571>_,
To confirm
<06965> (8763)
these days
<03117>
of Purim
<06332>
in their times
<02165>
[appointed], according as Mordecai
<04782>
the Jew
<03064>
and Esther
<0635>
the queen
<04436>
had enjoined
<06965> (8765)
them, and as they had decreed
<06965> (8765)
for themselves
<05315>
and for their seed
<02233>_,
the matters
<01697>
of the fastings
<06685>
and their cry
<02201>_.
{themselves: Heb. their souls}
And the decree
<03982>
of Esther
<0635>
confirmed
<06965> (8765)
these matters
<01697>
of Purim
<06332>_;
and it was written
<03789> (8737)
in the book
<05612>_.
