In the first
<07223>
month
<02320>_,
that [is], the month
<02320>
Nisan
<05212>_,
in the twelfth
<08147> <06240>
year
<08141>
of king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>_,
they cast
<05307> (8689)
Pur
<06332>_,
that [is], the lot
<01486>_,
before
<06440>
Haman
<02001>
from day
<03117>
to day
<03117>_,
and from month
<02320>
to month
<02320>_,
[to] the twelfth
<08147> <06240>
[month], that [is], the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>_.
And Haman
<02001>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>_,
There is
<03426>
a certain
<0259>
people
<05971>
scattered abroad
<06340> (8794)
and dispersed
<06504> (8794)
among the people
<05971>
in all the provinces
<04082>
of thy kingdom
<04438>_;
and their laws
<01881>
[are] diverse
<08138> (8802)
from all people
<05971>_;
neither keep
<06213> (8802)
they the king's
<04428>
laws
<01881>_:
therefore it [is] not for the king's
<04428>
profit
<07737> (8802)
to suffer
<03240> (8687)
them. {for the...: Heb. meet or, equal, etc}
If it please
<02895> (8804)
the king
<04428>_,
let it be written
<03789> (8735)
that they may be destroyed
<06> (8763)_:
and I will pay
<08254> (8799)
ten
<06235>
thousand
<0505>
talents
<03603>
of silver
<03701>
to the hands
<03027>
of those that have the charge
<06213> (8802)
of the business
<04399>_,
to bring
<0935> (8687)
[it] into the king's
<04428>
treasuries
<01595>_.
{that they...: Heb. to destroy them} {pay: Heb. weigh}
And the king
<04428>
took
<05493> (8686)
his ring
<02885>
from his hand
<03027>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
it unto Haman
<02001>
the son
<01121>
of Hammedatha
<04099>
the Agagite
<091>_,
the Jews
<03064>_'
enemy
<06887> (8802)_.
{enemy: or, oppressor}
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Haman
<02001>_,
The silver
<03701>
[is] given
<05414> (8803)
to thee, the people
<05971>
also, to do
<06213> (8800)
with them as it seemeth
<05869>
good
<02896>
to thee.
Then were the king's
<04428>
scribes
<05608> (8802)
called
<07121> (8735)
on the thirteenth
<07969> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the first
<07223>
month
<02320>_,
and there was written
<03789> (8735)
according to all that Haman
<02001>
had commanded
<06680> (8765)
unto the king's
<04428>
lieutenants
<0323>_,
and to the governors
<06346>
that [were] over every province
<04082>_,
and to the rulers
<08269>
of every people
<05971>
of every province
<04082>
according to the writing
<03791>
thereof, and [to] every people
<05971>
after their language
<03956>_;
in the name
<08034>
of king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>
was it written
<03789> (8737)_,
and sealed
<02856> (8738)
with the king's
<04428>
ring
<02885>_.
{scribes: or, secretaries}
And the letters
<05612>
were sent
<07971> (8736)
by
<03027>
posts
<07323> (8801)
into all the king's
<04428>
provinces
<04082>_,
to destroy
<08045> (8687)_,
to kill
<02026> (8800)_,
and to cause to perish
<06> (8763)_,
all Jews
<03064>_,
both young
<05288>
and old
<02205>_,
little children
<02945>
and women
<0802>_,
in one
<0259>
day
<03117>_,
[even] upon the thirteenth
<07969> <06240>
[day] of the twelfth
<08147> <06240>
month
<02320>_,
which is the month
<02320>
Adar
<0143>_,
and [to take] the spoil
<07998>
of them for a prey
<0962> (8800)_.
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>_,
that they should be ready
<06264>
against that day
<03117>_.
The posts
<07323> (8801)
went out
<03318> (8804)_,
being hastened
<01765> (8803)
by the king's
<04428>
commandment
<01697>_,
and the decree
<01881>
was given
<05414> (8738)
in Shushan
<07800>
the palace
<01002>_.
And the king
<04428>
and Haman
<02001>
sat down
<03427> (8804)
to drink
<08354> (8800)_;
but the city
<05892>
Shushan
<07800>
was perplexed
<0943> (8737)_.
