Chapter 3

  1. 1. After
    H310
    these things
    H1697
    did king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus
    H325
    promote
    H1431
    Haman
    H2001
    the son
    H1121
    of Hammedatha
    H4099
    the Agagite,
    H91
    and advanced
    H5375
    him, and set
    H7760
    his seat
    H3678
    above all the princes
    H8269
    that were with him.
  2. 2. And all the king's
    H4428
    servants,
    H5650
    that were in the king's
    H4428
    gate,
    H8179
    bowed,
    H3766
    and reverenced
    H7812
    Haman:
    H2001
    for the king
    H4428
    had so commanded
    H6680
    concerning him. But Mordecai
    H4782
    bowed
    H3766
    not, nor did him reverence.
    H7812
  3. 3. Then the king's
    H4428
    servants,
    H5650
    which were in the king's
    H4428
    gate,
    H8179
    said
    H559
    unto Mordecai,
    H4782
    Why transgressest
    H5674
    thou the king's
    H4428
    commandment?
    H4687
  4. 4. Now it came to pass, when they spake
    H559
    daily
    H3117
    unto
    H3117
    him, and he hearkened
    H8085
    not unto them, that they told
    H5046
    Haman,
    H2001
    to see
    H7200
    whether Mordecai's
    H4782
    matters
    H1697
    would stand:
    H5975
    for he had told
    H5046
    them that he was a Jew.
    H3064
  5. 5. And when Haman
    H2001
    saw
    H7200
    that Mordecai
    H4782
    bowed
    H3766
    not, nor did him reverence,
    H7812
    then was Haman
    H2001
    full
    H4390
    of wrath.
    H2534
  6. 6. And he thought
    H5869
    scorn
    H959
    to lay
    H7971
    hands
    H3027
    on Mordecai
    H4782
    alone; for they had shewed
    H5046
    him the people
    H5971
    of Mordecai:
    H4782
    wherefore Haman
    H2001
    sought
    H1245
    to destroy
    H8045
    all the Jews
    H3064
    that were throughout the whole kingdom
    H4438
    of Ahasuerus,
    H325
    even the people
    H5971
    of Mordecai.
    H4782
  7. 7. In the first
    H7223
    month,
    H2320
    that is, the month
    H2320
    Nisan,
    H5212
    in the twelfth
    H6240
    H8147
    year
    H8141
    of king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus,
    H325
    they cast
    H5307
    Pur,
    H6332
    that is, the lot,
    H1486
    before
    H6440
    Haman
    H2001
    from day
    H3117
    to day,
    H3117
    and from month
    H2320
    to month,
    H2320
    to the twelfth
    H6240
    month,
    H8147
    that is, the month
    H2320
    Adar.
    H143
  8. 8. And Haman
    H2001
    said
    H559
    unto king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus,
    H325
    There is
    H3426
    a certain
    H259
    people
    H5971
    scattered abroad
    H6340
    and dispersed
    H6504
    among the people
    H5971
    in all the provinces
    H4082
    of thy kingdom;
    H4438
    and their laws
    H1881
    are diverse
    H8138
    from all people;
    H5971
    neither keep
    H6213
    they the king's
    H4428
    laws:
    H1881
    therefore it is not for the king's
    H4428
    profit
    H7737
    to suffer
    H3240
    them.
  9. 9. If it please
    H2895
    the king,
    H4428
    let it be written
    H3789
    that they may be destroyed:
    H6
    and I will pay
    H8254
    ten
    H6235
    thousand
    H505
    talents
    H3603
    of silver
    H3701
    to the hands
    H3027
    of those that have the charge
    H6213
    of the business,
    H4399
    to bring
    H935
    it into the king's
    H4428
    treasuries.
    H1595
  10. 10. And the king
    H4428
    took
    H5493
    his ring
    H2885
    from his hand,
    H3027
    and gave
    H5414
    it unto Haman
    H2001
    the son
    H1121
    of Hammedatha
    H4099
    the Agagite,
    H91
    the Jews'
    H3064
    enemy.
    H6887
  11. 11. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto Haman,
    H2001
    The silver
    H3701
    is given
    H5414
    to thee, the people
    H5971
    also, to do
    H6213
    with them as it seemeth
    H5869
    good
    H2896
    to thee.
  12. 12. Then were the king's
    H4428
    scribes
    H5608
    called
    H7121
    on the thirteenth
    H6240
    H7969
    day
    H3117
    of the first
    H7223
    month,
    H2320
    and there was written
    H3789
    according to all that Haman
    H2001
    had commanded
    H6680
    unto the king's
    H4428
    lieutenants,
    H323
    and to the governors
    H6346
    that were over every province,
    H4082
    and to the rulers
    H8269
    of every people
    H5971
    of every province
    H4082
    according to the writing
    H3791
    thereof, and to every people
    H5971
    after their language;
    H3956
    in the name
    H8034
    of king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus
    H325
    was it written,
    H3789
    and sealed
    H2856
    with the king's
    H4428
    ring.
    H2885
  13. 13. And the letters
    H5612
    were sent
    H7971
    by
    H3027
    posts
    H7323
    into all the king's
    H4428
    provinces,
    H4082
    to destroy,
    H8045
    to kill,
    H2026
    and to cause to perish,
    H6
    all Jews,
    H3064
    both young
    H5288
    and old,
    H2205
    little children
    H2945
    and women,
    H802
    in one
    H259
    day,
    H3117
    even upon the thirteenth
    H6240
    day
    H7969
    of the twelfth
    H6240
    H8147
    month,
    H2320
    which is the month
    H2320
    Adar,
    H143
    and to take the spoil
    H7998
    of them for a prey.
    H962
  14. 14. The copy
    H6572
    of the writing
    H3791
    for a commandment
    H1881
    to be given
    H5414
    in every province
    H4082
    was published
    H1540
    unto all people,
    H5971
    that they should be ready
    H6264
    against that day.
    H3117
  15. 15. The posts
    H7323
    went out,
    H3318
    being hastened
    H1765
    by the king's
    H4428
    commandment,
    H1697
    and the decree
    H1881
    was given
    H5414
    in Shushan
    H7800
    the palace.
    H1002
    And the king
    H4428
    and Haman
    H2001
    sat down
    H3427
    to drink;
    H8354
    but the city
    H5892
    Shushan
    H7800
    was perplexed.
