  7 H6032 Then answered H635 Esther, H559 and said, H7596 My petition H1246 and my request is;
  8 H518 If H4672 I have found H2580 favor H5869 in the sight H4428 of the king, H518 and if H2895 it please H4428 the king H5414 to grant H7596 my petition, H6213 and to perform H1246 my request, H4428 let the king H2001 and Haman H935 come H4960 to the banquet H6213 that I shall prepare H6213 for them, and I will do H4279 to morrow H4428 as the king H1697 has said.

  11 H2001 And Haman H5608 told H3519 them of the glory H6239 of his riches, H7230 and the multitude H1121 of his children, H3605 and all H834 the things wherein H4428 the king H1431 had promoted H834 him, and how H5375 he had advanced H5921 him above H8269 the princes H5650 and servants H4428 of the king.

  1 H3117 On that day H4428 did the king H325 Ahasuerus H5414 give H1004 the house H2001 of Haman H3064 the Jews’ H6887 enemy H635 to Esther H4436 the queen. H4782 And Mordecai H935 came H6440 before H4428 the king; H635 for Esther H5046 had told H4100 what he was to her.
  2 H4428 And the king H5493 took H2885 off his ring, H834 which H5674 he had taken H2001 from Haman, H5414 and gave H4782 it to Mordecai. H635 And Esther H7760 set H4782 Mordecai H5921 over H1004 the house H2001 of Haman.
  3 H635 And Esther H1696 spoke H3254 yet again H6440 before H4428 the king, H5307 and fell H6440 down at H7272 his feet, H2603 and sought H1058 him with tears H5674 to put H5674 away H7451 the mischief H2001 of Haman H91 the Agagite, H4284 and his device H2803 that he had devised H5921 against H3064 the Jews.
  4 H4428 Then the king H3447 held H2091 out the golden H8275 scepter H635 toward Esther. H635 So Esther H6965 arose, H5975 and stood H6440 before H4428 the king,
  5 H559 And said, H518 If H2896 it please H4428 the king, H518 and if H4672 I have found H2580 favor H5869 in his sight, H1697 and the thing H3787 seem right H6440 before H4428 the king, H2896 and I be pleasing H5869 in his eyes, H3789 let it be written H7725 to reverse H5612 the letters H4284 devised H2001 by Haman H1121 the son H4099 of Hammedatha H91 the Agagite, H834 which H3789 he wrote H6 to destroy H3064 the Jews H834 which H3605 are in all H4428 the king’s H4082 provinces:
  6 H349 For how H3201 can H3201 I endure H7200 to see H7451 the evil H4672 that shall come H5971 to my people? H349 or how H3201 can H3201 I endure H7200 to see H13 the destruction H4138 of my kindred?
  7 H4428 Then the king H325 Ahasuerus H559 said H635 to Esther H4436 the queen H4782 and to Mordecai H3064 the Jew, H2009 Behold, H5414 I have given H635 Esther H1004 the house H2001 of Haman, H8518 and him they have hanged H6086 on the gallows, H5921 because H834 H7971 he laid H3027 his hand H3064 on the Jews.
  8 H3789 Write H3064 you also for the Jews, H2896 as it likes H4428 you, in the king’s H8034 name, H2856 and seal H4428 it with the king’s H2885 ring: H3791 for the writing H834 which H3789 is written H4428 in the king’s H8034 name, H2856 and sealed H4428 with the king’s H2885 ring, H369 may no H7725 man reverse.
  9 H4428 Then were the king’s H5608 scribes H7121 called H6256 at that time H7992 in the third H2320 month, H2320 that is, the month H5510 Sivan, H7969 on the three H6242 and twentieth H3789 day thereof; and it was written H3605 according to all H4782 that Mordecai H6680 commanded H3064 to the Jews, H323 and to the lieutenants, H6346 and the deputies H8269 and rulers H4082 of the provinces H834 which H1912 are from India H3568 to Ethiopia, H3967 an hundred H6242 twenty H7651 and seven H4082 provinces, H4082 to every province H3791 according to the writing H5971 thereof, and to every people H3956 after their language, H3064 and to the Jews H3791 according to their writing, H3956 and according to their language.
  10 H3789 And he wrote H4428 in the king H325 Ahasuerus’ H8034 name, H2856 and sealed H4428 it with the king’s H2885 ring, H7971 and sent H5612 letters H7323 by posts H5483 on horseback, H7392 and riders H7409 on mules, H327 camels, H1121 and young H7424 dromedaries:
  11 H834 Wherein H4428 the king H5414 granted H3064 the Jews H834 which H3605 were in every H5892 city H6950 to gather H5975 themselves together, and to stand H5315 for their life, H8045 to destroy, H2026 to slay H6 and to cause to perish, H3605 all H2428 the power H5971 of the people H4082 and province H6696 that would assault H2945 them, both little H802 ones and women, H7998 and to take the spoil H962 of them for a prey,
  12 H259 On one H3117 day H3605 in all H4082 the provinces H4428 of king H325 Ahasuerus, H7969 namely, on the thirteenth H6240 H8147 day of the twelfth H6240 H2320 month, H1931 which H2320 is the month H143 Adar.
  13 H6572 The copy H3791 of the writing H1881 for a commandment H5414 to be given H3605 in every H4082 province H1540 was published H3605 to all H5971 people, H3064 and that the Jews H6264 should be ready H3117 against that day H5358 to avenge H341 themselves on their enemies.
  14 H7323 So the posts H7392 that rode H7409 on mules H327 and camels H3318 went H926 out, being hastened H1765 and pressed H4428 on by the king’s H1697 commandment. H1881 And the decree H5414 was given H7800 at Shushan H1002 the palace.
  15 H4782 And Mordecai H3318 went H6440 out from the presence H4428 of the king H4438 in royal H3830 apparel H8504 of blue H2353 and white, H1419 and with a great H5850 crown H2091 of gold, H8509 and with a garment H948 of fine linen H713 and purple: H5892 and the city H7800 of Shushan H6670 rejoiced H8056 and was glad.
  16 H3064 The Jews H219 had light, H8057 and gladness, H8342 and joy, H3366 and honor.
  17 H3605 And in every H4082 province, H3605 and in every H5892 city, H4725 wherever H834 H4428 the king’s H1697 commandment H1881 and his decree H5060 came, H3064 the Jews H8057 had joy H8342 and gladness, H4960 a feast H2896 and a good H3117 day. H7227 And many H5971 of the people H776 of the land H3054 became H3054 Jews; H6343 for the fear H3064 of the Jews H5307 fell on them.

Esther 4:16

  16 H3212 Go, H3664 gather H3605 together all H3064 the Jews H4672 that are present H7800 in Shushan, H6684 and fast H408 you for me, and neither H398 eat H408 nor H8354 drink H7969 three H3117 days, H3915 night H3117 or day: H1571 I also H5291 and my maidens H6684 will fast H3651 likewise; H3651 and so H935 will I go H4428 in to the king, H834 which H1881 is not according to the law: H834 and if H6 I perish, H6 I perish.
