Chapter 1

  1. 1. Now it came to pass in the days
    H3117
    of Ahasuerus,
    H325
    (this is Ahasuerus
    H325
    which reigned,
    H4427
    from India
    H1912
    even unto Ethiopia,
    H3568
    over an hundred
    H3967
    and seven
    H7651
    and twenty
    H6242
    provinces:)
    H4082
  2. 2. That in those days,
    H3117
    when the king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus
    H325
    sat
    H3427
    on the throne
    H3678
    of his kingdom,
    H4438
    which was in Shushan
    H7800
    the palace,
    H1002
  3. 3. In the third
    H7969
    year
    H8141
    of his reign,
    H4427
    he made
    H6213
    a feast
    H4960
    unto all his princes
    H8269
    and his servants;
    H5650
    the power
    H2428
    of Persia
    H6539
    and Media,
    H4074
    the nobles
    H6579
    and princes
    H8269
    of the provinces,
    H4082
    being before
    H6440
    him:
  4. 4. When he shewed
    H7200
    the riches
    H6239
    of his glorious
    H3519
    kingdom
    H4438
    and the honour
    H3366
    of his excellent
    H8597
    majesty
    H1420
    many
    H7227
    days,
    H3117
    even an hundred
    H3967
    and fourscore
    H8084
    days.
    H3117
  5. 5. And when these days
    H3117
    were expired,
    H4390
    the king
    H4428
    made
    H6213
    a feast
    H4960
    unto all the people
    H5971
    that were present
    H4672
    in Shushan
    H7800
    the palace,
    H1002
    both unto great
    H1419
    and small,
    H6996
    seven
    H7651
    days,
    H3117
    in the court
    H2691
    of the garden
    H1594
    of the king's
    H4428
    palace;
    H1055
  6. 6. Where were white,
    H2353
    green,
    H3768
    and blue,
    H8504
    hangings, fastened
    H270
    with cords
    H2256
    of fine linen
    H948
    and purple
    H713
    to silver
    H3701
    rings
    H1550
    and pillars
    H5982
    of marble:
    H8336
    the beds
    H4296
    were of gold
    H2091
    and silver,
    H3701
    upon a pavement
    H7531
    of red,
    H923
    and blue,
    H8504
    and white,
    H1858
    and black,
    H5508
    marble.
    H8336
  7. 7. And they gave them drink
    H8248
    in vessels
    H3627
    of gold,
    H2091
    (the vessels
    H3627
    being diverse
    H8138
    one from another,)
    H3627
    and royal
    H4438
    wine
    H3196
    in abundance,
    H7227
    according to the state
    H3027
    of the king.
    H4428
  8. 8. And the drinking
    H8360
    was according to the law;
    H1881
    none did compel:
    H597
    for so the king
    H4428
    had appointed
    H3245
    to all the officers
    H7227
    of his house,
    H1004
    that they should do
    H6213
    according to every man's
    H376
    pleasure.
    H7522
  9. 9. Also Vashti
    H2060
    the queen
    H4436
    made
    H6213
    a feast
    H4960
    for the women
    H802
    in the royal
    H4438
    house
    H1004
    which belonged to king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus.
    H325
  10. 10. On the seventh
    H7637
    day,
    H3117
    when the heart
    H3820
    of the king
    H4428
    was merry
    H2896
    with wine,
    H3196
    he commanded
    H559
    Mehuman,
    H4104
    Biztha,
    H968
    Harbona,
    H2726
    Bigtha,
    H903
    and Abagtha,
    H5
    Zethar,
    H2242
    and Carcas,
    H3752
    the seven
    H7651
    chamberlains
    H5631
    that served
    H8334
    in the presence
    H6440
    of Ahasuerus
    H325
    the king,
    H4428
  11. 11. To bring
    H935
    Vashti
    H2060
    the queen
    H4436
    before
    H6440
    the king
    H4428
    with the crown
    H3804
    royal,
    H4438
    to shew
    H7200
    the people
    H5971
    and the princes
    H8269
    her beauty:
    H3308
    for she was fair
    H2896
    to look on.
    H4758
  12. 12. But the queen
    H4436
    Vashti
    H2060
    refused
    H3985
    to come
    H935
    at the king's
    H4428
    commandment
    H1697
    by
    H3027
    his chamberlains:
    H5631
    therefore was the king
    H4428
    very
    H3966
    wroth,
    H7107
    and his anger
    H2534
    burned
    H1197
    in him.
  13. 13. Then the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    to the wise men,
    H2450
    which knew
    H3045
    the times,
    H6256
    (for so was the king's
    H4428
    manner
    H1697
    toward
    H6440
    all that knew
    H3045
    law
    H1881
    and judgment:
    H1779
  14. 14. And the next
    H7138
    unto him was Carshena,
    H3771
    Shethar,
    H8369
    Admatha,
    H133
    Tarshish,
    H8659
    Meres,
    H4825
    Marsena,
    H4826
    and Memucan,
    H4462
    the seven
    H7651
    princes
    H8269
    of Persia
    H6539
    and Media,
    H4074
    which saw
    H7200
    the king's
    H4428
    face,
    H6440
    and which sat
    H3427
    the first
    H7223
    in the kingdom;)
    H4438
  15. 15. What shall we do
    H6213
    unto the queen
    H4436
    Vashti
    H2060
    according to law,
    H1881
    because she hath not performed
    H6213
    the commandment
    H3982
    of the king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus
    H325
    by
    H3027
    the chamberlains?
    H5631
  16. 16. And Memucan
    H4462
    answered
    H559
    before
    H6440
    the king
    H4428
    and the princes,
    H8269
    Vashti
    H2060
    the queen
    H4436
    hath not done wrong
    H5753
    to the king
    H4428
    only, but also to all the princes,
    H8269
    and to all the people
    H5971
    that are in all the provinces
    H4082
    of the king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus.
    H325
  17. 17. For this deed
    H1697
    of the queen
    H4436
    shall come abroad
    H3318
    unto all women,
    H802
    so that they shall despise
    H959
    their husbands
    H1167
    in their eyes,
    H5869
    when it shall be reported,
    H559
    The king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus
    H325
    commanded
    H559
    Vashti
    H2060
    the queen
    H4436
    to be brought in
    H935
    before
    H6440
    him, but she came
    H935
    not.
  18. 18. Likewise shall the ladies
    H8282
    of Persia
    H6539
    and Media
    H4074
    say
    H559
    this day
    H3117
    unto all the king's
    H4428
    princes,
    H8269
    which have heard
    H8085
    of the deed
    H1697
    of the queen.
    H4436
    Thus shall there arise too much
    H1767
    contempt
    H963
    and wrath.
    H7110
  19. 19. If it please
    H2895
    the king,
    H4428
    let there go
    H3318
    a royal
    H4438
    commandment
    H1697
    from him,
    H6440
    and let it be written
    H3789
    among the laws
    H1881
    of the Persians
    H6539
    and the Medes,
    H4074
    that it be not altered,
    H5674
    That Vashti
    H2060
    come
    H935
    no more before
    H6440
    king
    H4428
    Ahasuerus;
    H325
    and let the king
    H4428
    give
    H5414
    her royal estate
    H4438
    unto another
    H7468
    that is better
    H2896
    than she.
  20. 20. And when the king's
    H4428
    decree
    H6599
    which he shall make
    H6213
    shall be published
    H8085
    throughout all his empire,
    H4438
    (for it is great,)
    H7227
    all the wives
    H802
    shall give
    H5414
    to their husbands
    H1167
    honour,
    H3366
    both to great
    H1419
    and small.
    H6996
  21. 21. And the saying
    H1697
    pleased
    H3190
    H5869
    the king
    H4428
    and the princes;
    H8269
    and the king
    H4428
    did
    H6213
    according to the word
    H1697
    of Memucan:
    H4462
  22. 22. For he sent
    H7971
    letters
    H5612
    into all the king's
    H4428
    provinces,
    H4082
    into every province
    H4082
    according to the writing
    H3791
    thereof, and to every people
    H5971
    after their language,
    H3956
    that every man
    H376
    should bear rule
    H8323
    in his own house,
    H1004
    and that it should be published
    H1696
    according to the language
    H3956
    of every people.
