And in the city Susa the Jews slew five hundred men:
both Pharsannes, and Delphon and Phasga,
and Pharadatha, and Barea, and Sarbaca,
and Marmasima, and Ruphaeus, and Arsaeus, and Zabuthaeus,
the ten sons of Aman the son of Amadathes the Bugaean, the enemy of the Jews, and they plundered on the same day:
and the number of them that perished in Susa was rendered to the king.
And the king said to Esther, The Jews have slain five hundred men in the city Susa; and how, thinkest thou, have they used them in the rest of the country? What then dost thou yet ask, that it may be for thee?
And Esther said to the king, let it be granted to the Jews so to treat them tomorrow as to hand the ten sons of Aman.
And he permitted it to be so done; and he gave up to the Jews of the city the bodies of the sons of Aman to hang.
And the Jews assembled in Susa on the fourteenth of Adar, and slew three hundred men, but plundered no property.
