But the Jews went ahead on the appointed day and struck down their enemies with the sword. They killed and annihilated their enemies and did as they pleased with those who hated them.
They killed five hundred people in the fortress of Susa.
They also killed Parshandatha, Dalphon, Aspatha,
Poratha, Adalia, Aridatha,
Parmashta, Arisai, Aridai, and Vaizatha --
the ten sons of Haman son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews. But they did not take any plunder.
