Esther 4:11 NIV

11 "All the king's officials and the people of the royal provinces know that for any man or woman who approaches the king in the inner court without being summoned1 the king has but one law:2 that he be put to death. The only exception to this is for the king to extend the gold scepter3 to him and spare his life. But thirty days have passed since I was called to go to the king."
