20 G3588 G1161 Now G* Esther G3756 did not G5263 plainly tell G3588 G3968 of her fatherland, G1473 G3779 for thus G1063 G1781 [2gave charge G1473 3to her G* 1Mordecai], G5399 to fear G3588 G* God, G2532 and G4160 to observe G3588 G4366.2 his orders, G1473 G2531 as G1510.7.3 she was G3326 with G1473 him. G2532 And G* Esther G3756 did not G3337 change G3588 G72 her conduct. G1473
21 G2532 And G3076 [6fretted G3588 1the G1417 2two G2135 3eunuchs G3588 4of the G935 5king], G2532 and G3588 the G752.1 chiefs of the body guards, G3754 for G4254 Mordecai advanced. G* G2532 And G2212 they sought G615 to kill G* Artaxerxes G3588 the G935 king.
