Esther 8:11

Context

8:11 The king thereby allowed the Jews who were in every city to assemble and to stand up for themselves – to destroy, to kill, and to annihilate any army of whatever people or province that should become their adversaries, including their women and children, 1  and to confiscate their property.

Esther 9:16

Context

9:16 The rest of the Jews who were throughout the provinces of the king assembled in order to stand up for themselves and to have rest from their enemies. They killed seventy-five thousand 2  of their adversaries, but they did not confiscate their property.

1 tn Heb “children and women.” As in 3:13, the translation follows contemporary English idiom, which reverses the order.

2 tc For this number much of the Greek MS tradition reads “fifteen thousand.” The Lucianic Greek recension reads “70,100.”
