    King James Bible - Esther 8:5

    And said, If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king's provinces:

    World English Bible

    She said, "If it pleases the king, and if I have found favor in his sight, and the thing seem right to the king, and I am pleasing in his
    eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews who are in all the king's provinces.

    Douay-Rheims - Esther 8:5

    And said: If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and my request be not disagreeable to him, I beseech thee, that the former letters of Aman the traitor and enemy of the Jews, by which he commanded that they should be destroyed in all the king's provinces, may be reversed by new letters.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And said, If it shall please the king, and if I have found favor in his sight, and the thing shall seem right before the king, and I am pleasing in his
    eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews who are in all the king's provinces:

    VERSE (5) -
    Es 7:3 Ex 33:13,16 1Sa 20:29

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:5

    Y dijo: Si place al rey, y si he hallado gracia delante de el, y si la cosa es recta delante del rey, y si yo soy buena en sus ojos, sea escrito para revocar las cartas del designio de Amán hijo de Hamedata agageo, que escribió para destruir a los judíos que están en todas las provincias del rey.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. And said, if it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his
    eyes , etc.] This heap of phrases, which signify much the same thing, are used to work upon the king’s affections, and to show how submissive she was to his will: let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king’s provinces . She wisely takes no notice of any concern the king had in them, but suggests as that she looked upon them as forged by Haman, who put the king’s name and seal to them, without his knowledge and consent.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 3-14 - It was
    time to be earnest, when the church of God was at stake. Esther though safe herself, fell down and begged for the deliverance of he people. We read of no tears when she begged for her own life, but although she was sure of that, she wept for her people. Tears of pit and tenderness are the most Christ-like. According to the constitutio of the Persian government, no law or decree could be repealed of recalled. This is so far from speaking to the wisdom and honour of the Medes and Persians, that it clearly shows their pride and folly. Thi savours of that old presumption which ruined all, We will be as gods It is God's prerogative not to repent, or to say what can never be altered or unsaid. Yet a way was found, by another decree, to authoriz the Jews to stand upon their defence. The decree was published in the languages of all the provinces. Shall all the subjects of an earthl prince have his decrees in languages they understand, and shall God' oracles and laws be locked up from any of his servants in an unknow tongue?
