Esther 9:16

But the other Jews that were in the king's provinces gathered
themselves together
In a body, in their respective provinces and cities:

and stood for their lives;
defended themselves against those that attacked them:

and had rest from their enemies;
that selfsame day; all being destroyed by them, and none daring to appear against them:

and slew of their foes 75,000 men;
that is, in all the provinces put together:

but they laid not their hands on the prey; (See Gill on Esther 9:7).
