    1:1 Now it came to pass in the days 3117 of Ahasuerus 325, (this [is] Ahasuerus 325 which reigned 4427 8802, from India 1912 even unto Ethiopia 3568, [over] an hundred 3967 and seven 7651 and twenty 6242 provinces 4082:)

    1:2 [That] in those days 3117, when the king 4428 Ahasuerus 325 sat 3427 8800 on the throne 3678 of his kingdom 4438, which [was] in Shushan 7800 the palace 1002,

    1:3 In the third 7969 year 8141 of his reign 4427 8800, he made 6213 8804 a feast 4960 unto all his princes 8269 and his servants 5650; the power 2428 of Persia 6539 and Media 4074, the nobles 6579 and princes 8269 of the provinces 4082, [being] before 6440 him:

    1:4 When he shewed 7200 8687 the riches 6239 of his glorious 3519 kingdom 4438 and the honour 3366 of his excellent 8597 majesty 1420 many 7227 days 3117, [even] an hundred 3967 and fourscore 8084 days 3117.

    1:5 And when these days 3117 were expired 4390 8800, the king 4428 made 6213 8804 a feast 4960 unto all the people 5971 that were present 4672 8737 in Shushan 7800 the palace 1002, both unto great 1419 and small 6996, seven 7651 days 3117, in the court 2691 of the garden 1594 of the king's 4428 palace 1055;(present: Heb. found)

    1:6 [Where were] white 2353, green 3768, and blue 8504, [hangings], fastened 270 8803 with cords 2256 of fine linen 948 and purple 713 to silver 3701 rings 1550 and pillars 5982 of marble 8336: the beds 4296 [were of] gold 2091 and silver 3701, upon a pavement 7531 of red 923, and blue 8504, and white 1858, and black 5508, marble 8336.(blue, hangings: or, violet, etc)(of red…: or, of porphyre, and marble and alabaster, and stone of blue colour)

    1:7 And they gave [them] drink 8248 8687 in vessels 3627 of gold 2091, (the vessels 3627 being diverse 8138 8802 one from another 3627,) and royal 4438 wine 3196 in abundance 7227, according to the state 3027 of the king 4428.(royal…: Heb. wine of the kingdom)(state: Heb. hand)

    1:8 And the drinking 8360 [was] according to the law 1881; none did compel 597 8802: for so the king 4428 had appointed 3245 8765 to all the officers 7227 of his house 1004, that they should do 6213 8800 according to every man's 376 pleasure 7522.

    1:9 Also Vashti 2060 the queen 4436 made 6213 8804 a feast 4960 for the women 802 [in] the royal 4438 house 1004 which [belonged] to king 4428 Ahasuerus 325.

    1:10 On the seventh 7637 day 3117, when the heart 3820 of the king 4428 was merry 2896 with wine 3196, he commanded 559 8804 Mehuman 4104, Biztha 968, Harbona 2726, Bigtha 903, and Abagtha 5, Zethar 2242, and Carcas 3752, the seven 7651 chamberlains 5631 that served 8334 8764 in the presence 6440 of Ahasuerus 325 the king 4428,(chamberlains: or, eunuchs)

    1:11 To bring 935 8687 Vashti 2060 the queen 4436 before 6440 the king 4428 with the crown 3804 royal 4438, to shew 7200 8687 the people 5971 and the princes 8269 her beauty 3308: for she [was] fair 2896 to look on 4758.(fair…: Heb. good of countenance)

    1:12 But the queen 4436 Vashti 2060 refused 3985 8762 to come 935 8800 at the king's 4428 commandment 1697 by 3027 [his] chamberlains 5631: therefore was the king 4428 very 3966 wroth 7107 8799, and his anger 2534 burned 1197 8804 in him.(by his…: Heb. which was by the hand of his eunuchs)

    1:13 Then the king 4428 said 559 8799 to the wise men 2450, which knew 3045 8802 the times 6256, (for so [was] the king's 4428 manner 1697 toward 6440 all that knew 3045 8802 law 1881 and judgment 1779:

    1:14 And the next 7138 unto him [was] Carshena 3771, Shethar 8369, Admatha 133, Tarshish 8659, Meres 4825, Marsena 4826, [and] Memucan 4462, the seven 7651 princes 8269 of Persia 6539 and Media 4074, which saw 7200 8802 the king's 4428 face 6440, [and] which sat 3427 8802 the first 7223 in the kingdom 4438;)

    1:15 What shall we do 6213 8800 unto the queen 4436 Vashti 2060 according to law 1881, because she hath not performed 6213 8804 the commandment 3982 of the king 4428 Ahasuerus 325 by 3027 the chamberlains 5631?(What…: Heb. What to do)

    1:16 And Memucan 4462 answered 559 8799 before 6440 the king 4428 and the princes 8269, Vashti 2060 the queen 4436 hath not done wrong 5753 8804 to the king 4428 only, but also to all the princes 8269, and to all the people 5971 that [are] in all the provinces 4082 of the king 4428 Ahasuerus 325.

    1:17 For [this] deed 1697 of the queen 4436 shall come abroad 3318 8799 unto all women 802, so that they shall despise 959 8687 their husbands 1167 in their eyes 5869, when it shall be reported 559 8800, The king 4428 Ahasuerus 325 commanded 559 8804 Vashti 2060 the queen 4436 to be brought in 935 8687 before 6440 him, but she came 935 8804 not.

    1:18 [Likewise] shall the ladies 8282 of Persia 6539 and Media 4074 say 559 8799 this day 3117 unto all the king's 4428 princes 8269, which have heard 8085 8804 of the deed 1697 of the queen 4436. Thus [shall there arise] too much 1767 contempt 963 and wrath 7110.

    1:19 If it please 2895 8804 the king 4428, let there go 3318 8799 a royal 4438 commandment 1697 from him 6440, and let it be written 3789 8735 among the laws 1881 of the Persians 6539 and the Medes 4074, that it be not altered 5674 8799, That Vashti 2060 come 935 8799 no more before 6440 king 4428 Ahasuerus 325; and let the king 4428 give 5414 8799 her royal estate 4438 unto another 7468 that is better 2896 than she.(If it…: Heb. If it be good with the king)(unto…: Heb. unto her companion)(from him: Heb. from before him)(be not…: Heb. pass not away)

    1:20 And when the king's 4428 decree 6599 which he shall make 6213 8799 shall be published 8085 8738 throughout all his empire 4438, (for it is great 7227,) all the wives 802 shall give 5414 8799 to their husbands 1167 honour 3366, both to great 1419 and small 6996.

    1:21 And the saying 1697 pleased 3190 8799 5869 the king 4428 and the princes 8269; and the king 4428 did 6213 8799 according to the word 1697 of Memucan 4462:(pleased…: Heb. was good in the eyes of the king)

    1:22 For he sent 7971 8799 letters 5612 into all the king's 4428 provinces 4082, into every province 4082 according to the writing 3791 thereof, and to every people 5971 after their language 3956, that every man 376 should bear rule 8323 8802 in his own house 1004, and that [it] should be published 1696 8764 according to the language 3956 of every people 5971.(that it…: Heb. that one should publish it according to the language of his people)
