    2:1 After 310 these things 1697, when the wrath 2534 of king 4428 Ahasuerus 325 was appeased 7918 8800, he remembered 2142 8804 Vashti 2060, and what she had done 6213 8804, and what was decreed 1504 8738 against her.

    2:2 Then said 559 8799 the king's 4428 servants 5288 that ministered 8334 8764 unto him, Let there be fair 2896 4758 young 5291 virgins 1330 sought 1245 8762 for the king 4428:

    2:3 And let the king 4428 appoint 6485 8686 officers 6496 in all the provinces 4082 of his kingdom 4438, that they may gather together 6908 8799 all the fair 2896 4758 young 5291 virgins 1330 unto Shushan 7800 the palace 1002, to the house 1004 of the women 802, unto the custody 3027 of Hege 1896 the king's 4428 chamberlain 5631, keeper 8104 8802 of the women 802; and let their things for purification 8562 be given 5414 8800 [them]:(unto the…: Heb. unto the hand)(Hege: or, Hegai)

    2:4 And let the maiden 5291 which pleaseth 3190 8799 5869 the king 4428 be queen 4427 8799 instead of Vashti 2060. And the thing 1697 pleased 3190 8799 5869 the king 4428; and he did so 6213 8799.

    2:5 [Now] in Shushan 7800 the palace 1002 there was a certain 376 Jew 3064, whose name 8034 [was] Mordecai 4782, the son 1121 of Jair 2971, the son 1121 of Shimei 8096, the son 1121 of Kish 7027, a Benjamite 1145;

    2:6 Who had been carried away 1540 8717 from Jerusalem 3389 with the captivity 1473 which had been carried away 1540 8717 with Jeconiah 3204 king 4428 of Judah 3063, whom Nebuchadnezzar 5019 the king 4428 of Babylon 894 had carried away 1540 8689.(Jeconiah: or, Jehoiachin)

    2:7 And he brought up 539 8802 Hadassah 1919, that [is], Esther 635, his uncle's 1730 daughter 1323: for she had neither father 1 nor mother 517, and the maid 5291 [was] fair 3303 8389 and beautiful 2896 4758; whom Mordecai 4782, when her father 1 and mother 517 were dead 4194, took 3947 8804 for his own daughter 1323.(brought…: Heb. nourished)(fair…: Heb. fair of form, and good of countenance)

    2:8 So it came to pass, when the king's 4428 commandment 1697 and his decree 1881 was heard 8085 8736, and when many 7227 maidens 5291 were gathered together 6908 8736 unto Shushan 7800 the palace 1002, to the custody 3027 of Hegai 1896, that Esther 635 was brought 3947 8735 also unto the king's 4428 house 1004, to the custody 3027 of Hegai 1896, keeper 8104 8802 of the women 802.

    2:9 And the maiden 5291 pleased 3190 8799 5869 him, and she obtained 5375 8799 kindness 2617 of him 6440; and he speedily 926 8762 gave 5414 8800 her her things for purification 8562, with such things as belonged 4490 to her, and seven 7651 maidens 5291, [which were] meet 7200 8803 to be given 5414 8800 her, out of the king's 4428 house 1004: and he preferred 8138 8762 her and her maids 5291 unto the best 2896 [place] of the house 1004 of the women 802.(such…: Heb. her portions)(preferred: Heb. changed)

    2:10 Esther 635 had not shewed 5046 8689 her people 5971 nor her kindred 4138: for Mordecai 4782 had charged 6680 8765 her that she should not shew 5046 8686 [it].

    2:11 And Mordecai 4782 walked 1980 8693 every day 3117 before 6440 the court 2691 of the women's 802 house 1004, to know 3045 8800 how Esther 635 did 7965, and what should become 6213 8735 of her.(to know…: Heb. to know the peace)

    2:12 Now when every maid's 5291 turn 8447 was come 5060 8687 to go in 935 8800 to king 4428 Ahasuerus 325, after 7093 that she had been twelve 8147 6240 months 2320, according to the manner 1881 of the women 802, (for so were the days 3117 of their purifications 4795 accomplished 4390 8799, [to wit], six 8337 months 2320 with oil 8081 of myrrh 4753, and six 8337 months 2320 with sweet odours 1314, and with [other] things for the purifying 8562 of the women 802;)

    2:13 Then thus came 935 8802 [every] maiden 5291 unto the king 4428; whatsoever she desired 559 8799 was given 5414 8735 her to go 935 8800 with her out of the house 1004 of the women 802 unto the king's 4428 house 1004.

    2:14 In the evening 6153 she went 935 8802, and on the morrow 1242 she returned 7725 8802 into the second 8145 house 1004 of the women 802, to the custody 3027 of Shaashgaz 8190, the king's 4428 chamberlain 5631, which kept 8104 8802 the concubines 6370: she came in 935 8799 unto the king 4428 no more, except the king 4428 delighted 2654 8804 in her, and that she were called 7121 8738 by name 8034.

    2:15 Now when the turn 8447 of Esther 635, the daughter 1323 of Abihail 32 the uncle 1730 of Mordecai 4782, who had taken 3947 8804 her for his daughter 1323, was come 5060 8687 to go in 935 8800 unto the king 4428, she required 1245 8765 nothing 1697 but what Hegai 1896 the king's 4428 chamberlain 5631, the keeper 8104 8802 of the women 802, appointed 559 8799. And Esther 635 obtained 5375 8802 favour 2580 in the sight 5869 of all them that looked 7200 8802 upon her.

    2:16 So Esther 635 was taken 3947 8735 unto king 4428 Ahasuerus 325 into his house 1004 royal 4438 in the tenth 6224 month 2320, which [is] the month 2320 Tebeth 2887, in the seventh 7651 year 8141 of his reign 4438.

    2:17 And the king 4428 loved 157 8799 Esther 635 above all the women 802, and she obtained 5375 8799 grace 2580 and favour 2617 in his sight 6440 more than all the virgins 1330; so that he set 7760 8799 the royal 4438 crown 3804 upon her head 7218, and made her queen 4427 8686 instead of Vashti 2060.(favour: or, kindness)(in his…: Heb. before him)

    2:18 Then the king 4428 made 6213 8799 a great 1419 feast 4960 unto all his princes 8269 and his servants 5650, [even] Esther's 635 feast 4960; and he made 6213 8804 a release 2010 to the provinces 4082, and gave 5414 8799 gifts 4864, according to the state 3027 of the king 4428.(release: Heb. rest)

    2:19 And when the virgins 1330 were gathered together 6908 8736 the second time 8145, then Mordecai 4782 sat 3427 8802 in the king's 4428 gate 8179.

    2:20 Esther 635 had not [yet] shewed 5046 8688 her kindred 4138 nor her people 5971; as Mordecai 4782 had charged 6680 8765 her: for Esther 635 did 6213 8802 the commandment 3982 of Mordecai 4782, like as when she was brought up 545 with him.

    2:21 In those days 3117, while Mordecai 4782 sat 3427 8802 in the king's 4428 gate 8179, two 8147 of the king's 4428 chamberlains 5631, Bigthan 904 and Teresh 8657, of those which kept 8104 8802 the door 5592, were wroth 7107 8804, and sought 1245 8762 to lay 7971 8800 hand 3027 on the king 4428 Ahasuerus 325.(Bigthan: or, Bigthana)(the door: Heb. the threshold)

    2:22 And the thing 1697 was known 3045 8735 to Mordecai 4782, who told 5046 8686 [it] unto Esther 635 the queen 4436; and Esther 635 certified 559 8799 the king 4428 [thereof] in Mordecai's 4782 name 8034.

    2:23 And when inquisition 1245 8792 was made of the matter 1697, it was found out 4672 8735; therefore they were both 8147 hanged 8518 8735 on a tree 6086: and it was written 3789 8735 in the book 5612 of the chronicles 1697 3117 before 6440 the king 4428.
