Chapter 9

  1. 1. Now in the twelfth
    H6240
    H8147
    month,
    H2320
    that is, the month
    H2320
    Adar,
    H143
    on the thirteenth
    H6240
    H7969
    day
    H3117
    of the same, when the king's
    H4428
    commandment
    H1697
    and his decree
    H1881
    drew near
    H5060
    to be put in execution,
    H6213
    in the day
    H3117
    that the enemies
    H341
    of the Jews
    H3064
    hoped
    H7663
    to have power
    H7980
    over them, (though it was turned
    H2015
    to the contrary, that the Jews
    H3064
    had rule
    H7980
    over them that hated
    H8130
    them;)
  2. 2. The Jews
    H3064
    gathered themselves together
    H6950
    in their cities
    H5892
    throughout all the provinces
    H4082
    of the king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus,
    H325
    to lay
    H7971
    hand
    H3027
    on such as sought
    H1245
    their hurt:
    H7451
    and no man
    H376
    could withstand
    H5975
    them;
    H6440
    for the fear
    H6343
    of them fell
    H5307
    upon all people.
    H5971
  3. 3. And all the rulers
    H8269
    of the provinces,
    H4082
    and the lieutenants,
    H323
    and the deputies,
    H6346
    and officers
    H6213
    H4399
    of the king,
    H4428
    helped
    H5375
    the Jews;
    H3064
    because the fear
    H6343
    of Mordecai
    H4782
    fell
    H5307
    upon them.
  4. 4. For Mordecai
    H4782
    was great
    H1419
    in the king's
    H4428
    house,
    H1004
    and his fame
    H8089
    went out
    H1980
    throughout all the provinces:
    H4082
    for this man
    H376
    Mordecai
    H4782
    waxed
    H1980
    greater and greater.
    H1419
  5. 5. Thus the Jews
    H3064
    smote
    H5221
    all their enemies
    H341
    with the stroke
    H4347
    of the sword,
    H2719
    and slaughter,
    H2027
    and destruction,
    H12
    and did
    H6213
    what they would
    H7522
    unto those that hated
    H8130
    them.
  6. 6. And in Shushan
    H7800
    the palace
    H1002
    the Jews
    H3064
    slew
    H2026
    and destroyed
    H6
    five
    H2568
    hundred
    H3967
    men.
    H376
  7. 7. And Parshandatha,
    H6577
    and Dalphon,
    H1813
    and Aspatha,
    H630
  8. 8. And Poratha,
    H6334
    and Adalia,
    H118
    and Aridatha,
    H743
  9. 9. And Parmashta,
    H6534
    and Arisai,
    H747
    and Aridai,
    H742
    and Vajezatha,
    H2055
  10. 10. The ten
    H6235
    sons
    H1121
    of Haman
    H2001
    the son
    H1121
    of Hammedatha,
    H4099
    the enemy
    H6887
    of the Jews,
    H3064
    slew
    H2026
    they; but on the spoil
    H961
    laid
    H7971
    they not their hand.
    H3027
  11. 11. On that day
    H3117
    the number
    H4557
    of those that were slain
    H2026
    in Shushan
    H7800
    the palace
    H1002
    was brought
    H935
    before
    H6440
    the king.
    H4428
  12. 12. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto Esther
    H635
    the queen,
    H4436
    The Jews
    H3064
    have slain
    H2026
    and destroyed
    H6
    five
    H2568
    hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    in Shushan
    H7800
    the palace,
    H1002
    and the ten
    H6235
    sons
    H1121
    of Haman;
    H2001
    what have they done
    H6213
    in the rest
    H7605
    of the king's
    H4428
    provinces?
    H4082
    now what is thy petition?
    H7596
    and it shall be granted
    H5414
    thee: or what is thy request
    H1246
    further?
    H5750
    and it shall be done.
    H6213
  13. 13. Then said
    H559
    Esther,
    H635
    If it please
    H2896
    the king,
    H4428
    let it be granted
    H5414
    to the Jews
    H3064
    which are in Shushan
    H7800
    to do
    H6213
    to morrow
    H4279
    also according unto this day's
    H3117
    decree,
    H1881
    and let Haman's
    H2001
    ten
    H6235
    sons
    H1121
    be hanged
    H8518
    upon the gallows.
    H6086
  14. 14. And the king
    H4428
    commanded
    H559
    it so to be done:
    H6213
    and the decree
    H1881
    was given
    H5414
    at Shushan;
    H7800
    and they hanged
    H8518
    Haman's
    H2001
    ten
    H6235
    sons.
    H1121
  15. 15. For the Jews
    H3064
    that were in Shushan
    H7800
    gathered themselves together
    H6950
    on the fourteenth
    H6240
    H702
    day
    H3117
    also of the month
    H2320
    Adar,
    H143
    and slew
    H2026
    three
    H7969
    hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    at Shushan;
    H7800
    but on the prey
    H961
    they laid
    H7971
    not their hand.
    H3027
  16. 16. But the other
    H7605
    Jews
    H3064
    that were in the king's
    H4428
    provinces
    H4082
    gathered themselves together,
    H6950
    and stood
    H5975
    for their lives,
    H5315
    and had rest
    H5118
    from their enemies,
    H341
    and slew
    H2026
    of their foes
    H8130
    seventy
    H7657
    and five
    H2568
    thousand,
    H505
    but they laid
    H7971
    not their hands
    H3027
    on the prey,
    H961
  17. 17. On the thirteenth
    H6240
    H7969
    day
    H3117
    of the month
    H2320
    Adar;
    H143
    and on the fourteenth
    H6240
    day
    H702
    of the same rested
    H5118
    they, and made
    H6213
    it a day
    H3117
    of feasting
    H4960
    and gladness.
    H8057
  18. 18. But the Jews
    H3064
    that were at Shushan
    H7800
    assembled together
    H6950
    on the thirteenth
    H6240
    day
    H7969
    thereof, and on the fourteenth
    H6240
    thereof;
    H702
    and on the fifteenth
    H6240
    day
    H2568
    of the same they rested,
    H5118
    and made
    H6213
    it a day
    H3117
    of feasting
    H4960
    and gladness.
    H8057
  19. 19. Therefore the Jews
    H3064
    of the villages,
    H6521
    that dwelt
    H3427
    in the unwalled
    H6519
    towns,
    H5892
    made
    H6213
    the fourteenth
    H6240
    H702
    day
    H3117
    of the month
    H2320
    Adar
    H143
    a day of gladness
    H8057
    and feasting,
    H4960
    and a good
    H2896
    day,
    H3117
    and of sending
    H4916
    portions
    H4490
    one
    H376
    to another.
    H7453
  20. 20. And Mordecai
    H4782
    wrote
    H3789
    these things,
    H1697
    and sent
    H7971
    letters
    H5612
    unto all the Jews
    H3064
    that were in all the provinces
    H4082
    of the king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus,
    H325
    both nigh
    H7138
    and far,
    H7350
  21. 21. To stablish
    H6965
    this among them, that they should keep
    H6213
    the fourteenth
    H6240
    H702
    day
    H3117
    of the month
    H2320
    Adar,
    H143
    and the fifteenth
    H6240
    H2568
    day
    H3117
    of the same, yearly,
    H8141
    H8141
  22. 22. As the days
    H3117
    wherein the Jews
    H3064
    rested
    H5117
    from their enemies,
    H341
    and the month
    H2320
    which was turned
    H2015
    unto them from sorrow
    H3015
    to joy,
    H8057
    and from mourning
    H60
    into a good
    H2896
    day:
    H3117
    that they should make
    H6213
    them days
    H3117
    of feasting
    H4960
    and joy,
    H8057
    and of sending
    H4916
    portions
    H4490
    one
    H376
    to another,
    H7453
    and gifts
    H4979
    to the poor.
    H34
  23. 23. And the Jews
    H3064
    undertook
    H6901
    to do
    H6213
    as they had begun,
    H2490
    and as Mordecai
    H4782
    had written
    H3789
    unto them;
  24. 24. Because Haman
    H2001
    the son
    H1121
    of Hammedatha,
    H4099
    the Agagite,
    H91
    the enemy
    H6887
    of all the Jews,
    H3064
    had devised
    H2803
    against the Jews
    H3064
    to destroy
    H6
    them, and had cast
    H5307
    Pur,
    H6332
    that is, the lot,
    H1486
    to consume
    H2000
    them, and to destroy
    H6
    them;
  25. 25. But when Esther came
    H935
    before
    H6440
    the king,
    H4428
    he commanded
    H559
    by letters
    H5612
    that his wicked
    H7451
    device,
    H4284
    which he devised
    H2803
    against the Jews,
    H3064
    should return
    H7725
    upon his own head,
    H7218
    and that he and his sons
    H1121
    should be hanged
    H8518
    on the gallows.
    H6086
  26. 26. Wherefore they called
    H7121
    these days
    H3117
    Purim
    H6332
    after the name
    H8034
    of Pur.
    H6332
    Therefore for all the words
    H1697
    of this letter,
    H107
    and of that which they had seen
    H7200
    concerning this matter,
    H3602
    and which had come
    H5060
    unto them,
  27. 27. The Jews
    H3064
    ordained,
    H6965
    and took
    H6901
    upon them, and upon their seed,
    H2233
    and upon all such as joined
    H3867
    themselves unto them, so as it should not fail,
    H5674
    that they would keep
    H6213
    these two
    H8147
    days
    H3117
    according to their writing,
    H3791
    and according to their appointed time
    H2165
    every year;
    H8141
    H8141
  28. 28. And that these days
    H3117
    should be remembered
    H2142
    and kept
    H6213
    throughout
    H1755
    every generation,
    H1755
    every family,
    H4940
    every province,
    H4082
    and every city;
    H5892
    and that these days
    H3117
    of Purim
    H6332
    should not fail
    H5674
    from among
    H8432
    the Jews,
    H3064
    nor the memorial
    H2143
    of them perish
    H5486
    from their seed.
    H2233
  29. 29. Then Esther
    H635
    the queen,
    H4436
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Abihail,
    H32
    and Mordecai
    H4782
    the Jew,
    H3064
    wrote
    H3789
    with all authority,
    H8633
    to confirm
    H6965
    this second
    H8145
    letter
    H107
    of Purim.
    H6332
  30. 30. And he sent
    H7971
    the letters
    H5612
    unto all the Jews,
    H3064
    to the hundred
    H3967
    twenty
    H6242
    and seven
    H7651
    provinces
    H4082
    of the kingdom
    H4438
    of Ahasuerus,
    H325
    with words
    H1697
    of peace
    H7965
    and truth,
    H571
  31. 31. To confirm
    H6965
    these days
    H3117
    of Purim
    H6332
    in their times
    H2165
    appointed, according as Mordecai
    H4782
    the Jew
    H3064
    and Esther
    H635
    the queen
    H4436
    had enjoined
    H6965
    them, and as they had decreed
    H6965
    for themselves
    H5315
    and for their seed,
    H2233
    the matters
    H1697
    of the fastings
    H6685
    and their cry.
    H2201
  32. 32. And the decree
    H3982
    of Esther
    H635
    confirmed
    H6965
    these matters
    H1697
    of Purim;
    H6332
    and it was written
    H3789
    in the book.
