View In My Bible
5 At the end of this time, the king held a week-long banquet in the garden courtyard of the royal palace for all the people, from the greatest to the least, who were present in the fortress of Susa. 6 White and violet linen hangings were fastened with fine white and purple linen cords to silver rods on marblea columns. Gold and silver couches [were arranged] on a mosaic pavement of red feldspar,b marble,c mother-of-pearl, and precious stones. 7 Beverages were served in an array of gold goblets, each with a different design. Royal wine flowed freely, according to the king's bounty 8 and no restraint was placed on the drinking. The king had ordered every wine steward in his household to serve as much as each person wanted.
