5 The Jews put all their enemies to the sword, killing and destroying them. They did what they pleased to those who hated them.
6 In the fortress of Susa the Jews killed and destroyed 500 men,
7 including Parshandatha, Dalphon, Aspatha,
8 Poratha, Adalia, Aridatha,
9 Parmashta, Arisai, Aridai, and Vaizatha.
10 They killed these 10 sons of Haman son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews. However, they did not seizea any plunder.
11 On that day the number of people killed in the fortress of Susa was reported to the king.
12 The king said to Queen Esther, "In the fortress of Susa the Jews have killed and destroyed 500 men, including Haman's 10 sons. What have they done in the rest of the royal provinces? Whatever you ask will be given to you. Whatever you seek will also be done."
13 Esther answered, "If it pleases the king, may the Jews who are in Susa also have tomorrow to carry out today's law, and may [the bodies of] Haman's 10 sons be hung on the gallows."
14 The king gave the orders for this to be done, so a law was announced in Susa, and they hung [the bodies of] Haman's 10 sons.
15 The Jews in Susa assembled again on the fourteenth day of the month of Adar and killed 300 men in Susa, but they did not seizeb any plunder.
