1:8 And the drinking [H8360] [was] according to the law [H1881] ; none did compel [H597] : for so the king [H4428] had appointed [H3245] to all the officers [H7227] of his house [H1004] , that they should do [H6213] according to every man's [H376] pleasure [H7522] .

1:9 Also Vashti [H2060] the queen [H4436] made [H6213] a feast [H4960] for the women [H802] [in] the royal [H4438] house [H1004] which [belonged] to king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] .

1:10 On the seventh [H7637] day [H3117] , when the heart [H3820] of the king [H4428] was merry [H2896] with wine [H3196] , he commanded [H559] Mehuman [H4104] , Biztha [H968] , Harbona [H2726] , Bigtha [H903] , and Abagtha [H5] , Zethar [H2242] , and Carcas [H3752] , the seven [H7651] chamberlains [H5631] that served [H8334] in the presence [H6440] of Ahasuerus [H325] the king [H4428] ,(chamberlains: or, eunuchs)

1:11 To bring [H935] Vashti [H2060] the queen [H4436] before [H6440] the king [H4428] with the crown [H3804] royal [H4438] , to shew [H7200] the people [H5971] and the princes [H8269] her beauty [H3308] : for she [was] fair [H2896] to look on [H4758] .(fair: Heb. good of countenance)

1:12 But the queen [H4436] Vashti [H2060] refused [H3985] to come [H935] at the king's [H4428] commandment [H1697] by [H3027] [his] chamberlains [H5631] : therefore was the king [H4428] very [H3966] wroth [H7107] , and his anger [H2534] burned [H1197] in him.(by his: Heb. which was by the hand of his eunuchs)

1:13 Then the king [H4428] said [H559] to the wise men [H2450] , which knew [H3045] the times [H6256] , (for so [was] the king's [H4428] manner [H1697] toward [H6440] all that knew [H3045] law [H1881] and judgment [H1779] :

1:14 And the next [H7138] unto him [was] Carshena [H3771] , Shethar [H8369] , Admatha [H133] , Tarshish [H8659] , Meres [H4825] , Marsena [H4826] , [and] Memucan [H4462] , the seven [H7651] princes [H8269] of Persia [H6539] and Media [H4074] , which saw [H7200] the king's [H4428] face [H6440] , [and] which sat [H3427] the first [H7223] in the kingdom [H4438] ;)

1:15 What shall we do [H6213] unto the queen [H4436] Vashti [H2060] according to law [H1881] , because she hath not performed [H6213] the commandment [H3982] of the king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] by [H3027] the chamberlains [H5631] ?(What: Heb. What to do)

1:16 And Memucan [H4462] answered [H559] before [H6440] the king [H4428] and the princes [H8269] , Vashti [H2060] the queen [H4436] hath not done wrong [H5753] to the king [H4428] only, but also to all the princes [H8269] , and to all the people [H5971] that [are] in all the provinces [H4082] of the king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] .

1:17 For [this] deed [H1697] of the queen [H4436] shall come abroad [H3318] unto all women [H802] , so that they shall despise [H959] their husbands [H1167] in their eyes [H5869] , when it shall be reported [H559] , The king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] commanded [H559] Vashti [H2060] the queen [H4436] to be brought in [H935] before [H6440] him, but she came [H935] not.

1:18 [Likewise] shall the ladies [H8282] of Persia [H6539] and Media [H4074] say [H559] this day [H3117] unto all the king's [H4428] princes [H8269] , which have heard [H8085] of the deed [H1697] of the queen [H4436] . Thus [shall there arise] too much [H1767] contempt [H963] and wrath [H7110] .

1:19 If it please [H2895] the king [H4428] , let there go [H3318] a royal [H4438] commandment [H1697] from him [H6440] , and let it be written [H3789] among the laws [H1881] of the Persians [H6539] and the Medes [H4074] , that it be not altered [H5674] , That Vashti [H2060] come [H935] no more before [H6440] king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] ; and let the king [H4428] give [H5414] her royal estate [H4438] unto another [H7468] that is better [H2896] 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 [H4428] decree [H6599] which he shall make [H6213] shall be published [H8085] throughout all his empire [H4438] , (for it is great [H7227] ,) all the wives [H802] shall give [H5414] to their husbands [H1167] honour [H3366] , both to great [H1419] and small [H6996] .

1:21 And the saying [H1697] pleased [H3190] [H5869] the king [H4428] and the princes [H8269] ; and the king [H4428] did [H6213] according to the word [H1697] of Memucan [H4462] :(pleased: Heb. was good in the eyes of the king)

1:22 For he sent [H7971] letters [H5612] into all the king's [H4428] provinces [H4082] , into every province [H4082] according to the writing [H3791] thereof, and to every people [H5971] after their language [H3956] , that every man [H376] should bear rule [H8323] in his own house [H1004] , and that [it] should be published [H1696] according to the language [H3956] of every people [H5971] .(that it: Heb. that one should publish it according to the language of his people)
