Chapter 2

  1. 1. After
    H310
    these things,
    H1697
    when the wrath
    H2534
    of king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus
    H325
    was appeased,
    H7918
    he remembered
    H2142
    Vashti,
    H2060
    and what she had done,
    H6213
    and what was decreed
    H1504
    against her.
  2. 2. Then said
    H559
    the king's
    H4428
    servants
    H5288
    that ministered
    H8334
    unto him, Let there be fair
    H4758
    H2896
    young
    H5291
    virgins
    H1330
    sought
    H1245
    for the king:
    H4428
  3. 3. And let the king
    H4428
    appoint
    H6485
    officers
    H6496
    in all the provinces
    H4082
    of his kingdom,
    H4438
    that they may gather together
    H6908
    all the fair
    H4758
    H2896
    young
    H5291
    virgins
    H1330
    unto Shushan
    H7800
    the palace,
    H1002
    to the house
    H1004
    of the women,
    H802
    unto the custody
    H3027
    of Hege
    H1896
    the king's
    H4428
    chamberlain,
    H5631
    keeper
    H8104
    of the women;
    H802
    and let their things for purification
    H8562
    be given
    H5414
    them:
  4. 4. And let the maiden
    H5291
    which pleaseth
    H3190
    H5869
    the king
    H4428
    be queen
    H4427
    instead of Vashti.
    H2060
    And the thing
    H1697
    pleased
    H3190
    H5869
    the king;
    H4428
    and he did so.
    H6213
  5. 5. Now in Shushan
    H7800
    the palace
    H1002
    there was a certain
    H376
    Jew,
    H3064
    whose name
    H8034
    was Mordecai,
    H4782
    the son
    H1121
    of Jair,
    H2971
    the son
    H1121
    of Shimei,
    H8096
    the son
    H1121
    of Kish,
    H7027
    a Benjamite;
    H1145
  6. 6. Who had been carried away
    H1540
    from Jerusalem
    H3389
    with the captivity
    H1473
    which had been carried away
    H1540
    with Jeconiah
    H3204
    king
    H4428
    of Judah,
    H3063
    whom Nebuchadnezzar
    H5019
    the king
    H4428
    of Babylon
    H894
    had carried away.
    H1540
  7. 7. And he brought up
    H539
    Hadassah,
    H1919
    that is, Esther,
    H635
    his uncle's
    H1730
    daughter:
    H1323
    for she had neither father
    H1
    nor mother,
    H517
    and the maid
    H5291
    was fair
    H8389
    and
    H3303
    beautiful;
    H4758
    H2896
    whom Mordecai,
    H4782
    when her father
    H1
    and mother
    H517
    were dead,
    H4194
    took
    H3947
    for his own daughter.
    H1323
  8. 8. So it came to pass, when the king's
    H4428
    commandment
    H1697
    and his decree
    H1881
    was heard,
    H8085
    and when many
    H7227
    maidens
    H5291
    were gathered together
    H6908
    unto Shushan
    H7800
    the palace,
    H1002
    to the custody
    H3027
    of Hegai,
    H1896
    that Esther
    H635
    was brought
    H3947
    also unto the king's
    H4428
    house,
    H1004
    to the custody
    H3027
    of Hegai,
    H1896
    keeper
    H8104
    of the women.
    H802
  9. 9. And the maiden
    H5291
    pleased
    H3190
    H5869
    him, and she obtained
    H5375
    kindness
    H2617
    of him;
    H6440
    and he speedily
    H926
    gave
    H5414
    her her things for purification,
    H8562
    with such things as belonged
    H4490
    to her, and seven
    H7651
    maidens,
    H5291
    which were meet
    H7200
    to be given
    H5414
    her, out of the king's
    H4428
    house:
    H1004
    and he preferred
    H8138
    her and her maids
    H5291
    unto the best
    H2896
    place of the house
    H1004
    of the women.
    H802
  10. 10. Esther
    H635
    had not shewed
    H5046
    her people
    H5971
    nor her kindred:
    H4138
    for Mordecai
    H4782
    had charged
    H6680
    her that she should not shew
    H5046
    it.
  11. 11. And Mordecai
    H4782
    walked
    H1980
    every day
    H3117
    before
    H6440
    the court
    H2691
    of the women's
    H802
    house,
    H1004
    to know
    H3045
    how Esther
    H635
    did,
    H7965
    and what should become
    H6213
    of her.
  12. 12. Now when every maid's
    H5291
    turn
    H8447
    was come
    H5060
    to go in
    H935
    to king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus,
    H325
    after
    H7093
    that she had been twelve
    H6240
    H8147
    months,
    H2320
    according to the manner
    H1881
    of the women,
    H802
    (for so were the days
    H3117
    of their purifications
    H4795
    accomplished,
    H4390
    to wit, six
    H8337
    months
    H2320
    with oil
    H8081
    of myrrh,
    H4753
    and six
    H8337
    months
    H2320
    with sweet odours,
    H1314
    and with other things for the purifying
    H8562
    of the women;)
    H802
  13. 13. Then thus came
    H935
    every maiden
    H5291
    unto the king;
    H4428
    whatsoever she desired
    H559
    was given
    H5414
    her to go
    H935
    with her out of the house
    H1004
    of the women
    H802
    unto the king's
    H4428
    house.
    H1004
  14. 14. In the evening
    H6153
    she went,
    H935
    and on the morrow
    H1242
    she returned
    H7725
    into the second
    H8145
    house
    H1004
    of the women,
    H802
    to the custody
    H3027
    of Shaashgaz,
    H8190
    the king's
    H4428
    chamberlain,
    H5631
    which kept
    H8104
    the concubines:
    H6370
    she came in
    H935
    unto the king
    H4428
    no more, except the king
    H4428
    delighted
    H2654
    in her, and that she were called
    H7121
    by name.
    H8034
  15. 15. Now when the turn
    H8447
    of Esther,
    H635
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Abihail
    H32
    the uncle
    H1730
    of Mordecai,
    H4782
    who had taken
    H3947
    her for his daughter,
    H1323
    was come
    H5060
    to go in
    H935
    unto the king,
    H4428
    she required
    H1245
    nothing
    H1697
    but what Hegai
    H1896
    the king's
    H4428
    chamberlain,
    H5631
    the keeper
    H8104
    of the women,
    H802
    appointed.
    H559
    And Esther
    H635
    obtained
    H5375
    favour
    H2580
    in the sight
    H5869
    of all them that looked
    H7200
    upon her.
  16. 16. So Esther
    H635
    was taken
    H3947
    unto king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus
    H325
    into his house
    H1004
    royal
    H4438
    in the tenth
    H6224
    month,
    H2320
    which is the month
    H2320
    Tebeth,
    H2887
    in the seventh
    H7651
    year
    H8141
    of his reign.
    H4438
  17. 17. And the king
    H4428
    loved
    H157
    Esther
    H635
    above all the women,
    H802
    and she obtained
    H5375
    grace
    H2580
    and favour
    H2617
    in his sight
    H6440
    more than all the virgins;
    H1330
    so that he set
    H7760
    the royal
    H4438
    crown
    H3804
    upon her head,
    H7218
    and made her queen
    H4427
    instead of Vashti.
    H2060
  18. 18. Then the king
    H4428
    made
    H6213
    a great
    H1419
    feast
    H4960
    unto all his princes
    H8269
    and his servants,
    H5650
    even Esther's
    H635
    feast;
    H4960
    and he made
    H6213
    a release
    H2010
    to the provinces,
    H4082
    and gave
    H5414
    gifts,
    H4864
    according to the state
    H3027
    of the king.
    H4428
  19. 19. And when the virgins
    H1330
    were gathered together
    H6908
    the second time,
    H8145
    then Mordecai
    H4782
    sat
    H3427
    in the king's
    H4428
    gate.
    H8179
  20. 20. Esther
    H635
    had not yet shewed
    H5046
    her kindred
    H4138
    nor her people;
    H5971
    as Mordecai
    H4782
    had charged
    H6680
    her: for Esther
    H635
    did
    H6213
    the commandment
    H3982
    of Mordecai,
    H4782
    like as when she was brought up
    H545
    with him.
  21. 21. In those days,
    H3117
    while Mordecai
    H4782
    sat
    H3427
    in the king's
    H4428
    gate,
    H8179
    two
    H8147
    of the king's
    H4428
    chamberlains,
    H5631
    Bigthan
    H904
    and Teresh,
    H8657
    of those which kept
    H8104
    the door,
    H5592
    were wroth,
    H7107
    and sought
    H1245
    to lay
    H7971
    hand
    H3027
    on the king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus.
    H325
  22. 22. And the thing
    H1697
    was known
    H3045
    to Mordecai,
    H4782
    who told
    H5046
    it unto Esther
    H635
    the queen;
    H4436
    and Esther
    H635
    certified
    H559
    the king
    H4428
    thereof in Mordecai's
    H4782
    name.
    H8034
  23. 23. And when inquisition
    H1245
    was made of the matter,
    H1697
    it was found out;
    H4672
    therefore they were both
    H8147
    hanged
    H8518
    on a tree:
    H6086
    and it was written
    H3789
    in the book
    H5612
    of the chronicles
    H3117
    H1697
    before
    H6440
    the king.
