"This day the ladies of Persia and Media who have heard of the queen's conduct will speak in the same way to all the king's princes, and there will be plenty of contempt and anger.
the young lady would go in to the king in this way: anything that she desired was given her to take with her from the harem to the king's palace.
A copy of the edict to be issued as law in every province was published to all the peoples so that they should be ready for this day.
Then Esther summoned Hathach from the king's eunuchs, whom the king had appointed to attend her, and ordered him to go to Mordecai to learn what this was and why it was.
"All the king's servants and the people of the king's provinces know that for any man or woman who comes to the king to the inner court who is not summoned, he has but one law, that he be put to death, unless the king holds out to him the golden scepter so that he may live. And I have not been summoned to come to the king for these thirty days."
"Yet all of this does not satisfy me every time I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate."
The king said, "What honor or dignity has been bestowed on Mordecai for this?" Then the king's servants who attended him said, "Nothing has been done for him."
Esther said, "A foe and an enemy is this wicked Haman!" Then Haman became terrified before the king and queen.
A copy of the edict to be issued as law in each and every province was published to all the peoples, so that the Jews would be ready for this day to avenge themselves on their enemies.
