These orders were written in the script of each province and the language of each people and also to the Jews in their own script and language.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “in that time”; NIV “At once.”

sn Cf. 3:12. Two months and ten days have passed since Haman’s edict to wipe out the Jews.

tn Heb “it was written”; this passive construction has been converted to an active one in the translation for clarity and for stylistic reasons.

tn Heb “Cush” (so NIV), referring to the region of the upper Nile in Africa. Cf. KJV and most other English versions “Ethiopia.”
