King James Version (KJV)

Esther 2:3

1. After these things, when the wrath of king Ahasuerus was appeased, hee remembred Uasthi, and what shee had done, and what was decreed against her. 2. Then saide the kings seruants, that ministred vnto him, Let there bee faire yong virgins sought for the king: 3. And let the king appoint officers in all the prouinces of his kingdome, that they may gather together all the faire yong virgins vnto Shushan the palace, to the house of the women vnto the custodie of Hege the kings chamberlaine, keeper of the women, and let their things for purification bee giuen them: 4. And let the maiden which pleaseth the king, bee Queene in stead of Uasthi. And the thing pleased the king, and he did so. 5. ¶ Now in Shushan the palace, there was a certaine Iew, whose name was Mordecai, the sonne of Iair, the sonne of Shimei, the sonne of Kish, a Beniamite, 6. Who had bene caried away from Ierusalem, with the captiuitie which had bene caried away with Ieconiah king of Iudah, whom Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon had caried away.
