    3:1 After 310 these things 1697 did king 4428 Ahasuerus 325 promote 1431 8765 Haman 2001 the son 1121 of Hammedatha 4099 the Agagite 91, and advanced 5375 8762 him, and set 7760 8799 his seat 3678 above all the princes 8269 that [were] with him.

    3:2 And all the king's 4428 servants 5650, that [were] in the king's 4428 gate 8179, bowed 3766 8802, and reverenced 7812 8693 Haman 2001: for the king 4428 had so commanded 6680 8765 concerning him. But Mordecai 4782 bowed 3766 8799 not, nor did [him] reverence 7812 8691.

    3:3 Then the king's 4428 servants 5650, which [were] in the king's 4428 gate 8179, said 559 8799 unto Mordecai 4782, Why transgressest 5674 8802 thou the king's 4428 commandment 4687?

    3:4 Now it came to pass, when they spake 559 8800 daily 3117 3117 unto him, and he hearkened 8085 8804 not unto them, that they told 5046 8686 Haman 2001, to see 7200 8800 whether Mordecai's 4782 matters 1697 would stand 5975 8799: for he had told 5046 8689 them that he [was] a Jew 3064.

    3:5 And when Haman 2001 saw 7200 8799 that Mordecai 4782 bowed 3766 8802 not, nor did him reverence 7812 8693, then was Haman 2001 full 4390 8735 of wrath 2534.

    3:6 And he thought 5869 scorn 959 8799 to lay 7971 8800 hands 3027 on Mordecai 4782 alone; for they had shewed 5046 8689 him the people 5971 of Mordecai 4782: wherefore Haman 2001 sought 1245 8762 to destroy 8045 8687 all the Jews 3064 that [were] throughout the whole kingdom 4438 of Ahasuerus 325, [even] the people 5971 of Mordecai 4782.

    3:7 In the first 7223 month 2320, that [is], the month 2320 Nisan 5212, in the twelfth 8147 6240 year 8141 of king 4428 Ahasuerus 325, they cast 5307 8689 Pur 6332, that [is], the lot 1486, before 6440 Haman 2001 from day 3117 to day 3117, and from month 2320 to month 2320, [to] the twelfth 8147 6240 [month], that [is], the month 2320 Adar 143.

    3:8 And Haman 2001 said 559 8799 unto king 4428 Ahasuerus 325, There is 3426 a certain 259 people 5971 scattered abroad 6340 8794 and dispersed 6504 8794 among the people 5971 in all the provinces 4082 of thy kingdom 4438; and their laws 1881 [are] diverse 8138 8802 from all people 5971; neither keep 6213 8802 they the king's 4428 laws 1881: therefore it [is] not for the king's 4428 profit 7737 8802 to suffer 3240 8687 them.(for the…: Heb. meet or, equal, etc)

    3:9 If it please 2895 8804 the king 4428, let it be written 3789 8735 that they may be destroyed 6 8763: and I will pay 8254 8799 ten 6235 thousand 505 talents 3603 of silver 3701 to the hands 3027 of those that have the charge 6213 8802 of the business 4399, to bring 935 8687 [it] into the king's 4428 treasuries 1595.(that they…: Heb. to destroy them)(pay: Heb. weigh)

    3:10 And the king 4428 took 5493 8686 his ring 2885 from his hand 3027, and gave 5414 8799 it unto Haman 2001 the son 1121 of Hammedatha 4099 the Agagite 91, the Jews' 3064 enemy 6887 8802.(enemy: or, oppressor)

    3:11 And the king 4428 said 559 8799 unto Haman 2001, The silver 3701 [is] given 5414 8803 to thee, the people 5971 also, to do 6213 8800 with them as it seemeth 5869 good 2896 to thee.

    3:12 Then were the king's 4428 scribes 5608 8802 called 7121 8735 on the thirteenth 7969 6240 day 3117 of the first 7223 month 2320, and there was written 3789 8735 according to all that Haman 2001 had commanded 6680 8765 unto the king's 4428 lieutenants 323, and to the governors 6346 that [were] over every province 4082, and to the rulers 8269 of every people 5971 of every province 4082 according to the writing 3791 thereof, and [to] every people 5971 after their language 3956; in the name 8034 of king 4428 Ahasuerus 325 was it written 3789 8737, and sealed 2856 8738 with the king's 4428 ring 2885.(scribes: or, secretaries)

    3:13 And the letters 5612 were sent 7971 8736 by 3027 posts 7323 8801 into all the king's 4428 provinces 4082, to destroy 8045 8687, to kill 2026 8800, and to cause to perish 6 8763, all Jews 3064, both young 5288 and old 2205, little children 2945 and women 802, in one 259 day 3117, [even] upon the thirteenth 7969 6240 [day] of the twelfth 8147 6240 month 2320, which is the month 2320 Adar 143, and [to take] the spoil 7998 of them for a prey 962 8800.

    3:14 The copy 6572 of the writing 3791 for a commandment 1881 to be given 5414 8736 in every province 4082 was published 1540 8803 unto all people 5971, that they should be ready 6264 against that day 3117.

    3:15 The posts 7323 8801 went out 3318 8804, being hastened 1765 8803 by the king's 4428 commandment 1697, and the decree 1881 was given 5414 8738 in Shushan 7800 the palace 1002. And the king 4428 and Haman 2001 sat down 3427 8804 to drink 8354 8800; but the city 5892 Shushan 7800 was perplexed 943 8737.
