“Go, assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa and fast in my behalf. Don’t eat and don’t drink for three days, night or day. My female attendants and I 1  will also fast in the same way. Afterward I will go to the king, even though it violates the law. 2  If I perish, I perish!”

NET © Notes

tn Heb “I and my female attendants.” The translation reverses the order for stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “which is not according to the law” (so KJV, NASB); NAB “contrary to the law.”
