The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
3 Let the king appoint officials in every province of his kingdom to bring every beautiful young virgin to the palace complex of Susa and to the harem run by Hegai, the king's eunuch who oversees the women; he will put them through their beauty treatments. 3 Let the king appoint commissioners in every province of his realm to bring all these beautiful girls into the harem at the citadel of Susa. Let them be placed under the care of Hegai, the king's eunuch, who is in charge of the women; and let beauty treatments be given to them.
4 Then let the girl who best pleases the king be made queen in place of Vashti." The king liked this advice and took it. 4 Then let the girl who pleases the king be queen instead of Vashti." This advice appealed to the king, and he followed it.
