Context
Queen Vashti is Removed from Her Royal Position

Esther 1:20

Context
1:20 And let the king’s decision which he will enact be disseminated 3  throughout all his kingdom, vast though it is. 4  Then all the women will give honor to their husbands, from the most prominent to the lowly.”

1 tn Heb “as the heart of the king was good with the wine.” Here the proper name (King Ahasuerus) has been substituted for the title in the translation for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Heb “King Ahasuerus”; here the proper name has been replaced by the pronoun “him” in the translation for stylistic reasons. Cf. similarly NIV, NCV, CEV, NLT “King Xerxes.”

3 tn Heb “heard”; KJV, NAB, NLT “published”; NIV, NRSV “proclaimed.”

4 tc The phrase “vast though it is” is not included in the LXX, although it is retained by almost all English versions.
