Therefore these days were called Phrurae, because of the lots; (for in their language they are called Phrurae;) because of the words of this letter, and all they suffered on this account, and all that happened to them.
And established it, and the Jews took upon themselves, and upon their seed, and upon those that were joined to them , neither would they on any account behave differently: but these days a memorial kept in every generation, and city, and family, and province.
And these days of the Phrurae, shall be kept for ever, and their memorial shall not fail in any generation.
And queen Esther, the daughter of Aminadab, and Mardochaeus the Jew, wrote all that they had done, and the confirmation of the letter of Phrurae.
And Mardochaeus and Esther the queen appointed for themselves privately, even at that time also having formed their plan against their own health.
And Esther established it by a command for ever, and it was written for a memorial.
