8:1 On that day [H3117] did the king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] give [H5414] the house [H1004] of Haman [H2001] the Jews' [H3064] enemy [H6887] unto Esther [H635] the queen [H4436] . And Mordecai [H4782] came [H935] before [H6440] the king [H4428] ; for Esther [H635] had told [H5046] what he [was] unto her.

8:2 And the king [H4428] took off [H5493] his ring [H2885] , which he had taken [H5674] from Haman [H2001] , and gave [H5414] it unto Mordecai [H4782] . And Esther [H635] set [H7760] Mordecai [H4782] over the house [H1004] of Haman [H2001] .

8:3 And Esther [H635] spake [H1696] yet again [H3254] before [H6440] the king [H4428] , and fell down [H5307] at [H6440] his feet [H7272] , and besought [H2603] him with tears [H1058] to put away [H5674] the mischief [H7451] of Haman [H2001] the Agagite [H91] , and his device [H4284] that he had devised [H2803] against the Jews [H3064] .(and besought: Heb. and she wept, and besought him)

8:4 Then the king [H4428] held out [H3447] the golden [H2091] sceptre [H8275] toward Esther [H635] . So Esther [H635] arose [H6965] , and stood [H5975] before [H6440] the king [H4428] ,

8:5 And said [H559] , If it please [H2896] the king [H4428] , and if I have found [H4672] favour [H2580] in his sight [H6440] , and the thing [H1697] [seem] right [H3787] before [H6440] the king [H4428] , and I [be] pleasing [H2896] in his eyes [H5869] , let it be written [H3789] to reverse [H7725] the letters [H5612] devised [H4284] by Haman [H2001] the son [H1121] of Hammedatha [H4099] the Agagite [H91] , which he wrote [H3789] to destroy [H6] the Jews [H3064] which [are] in all the king's [H4428] provinces [H4082] :(devised: Heb. the device)(which he: or, who wrote)

8:6 For how [H349] can I endure [H3201] to see [H7200] the evil [H7451] that shall come [H4672] unto my people [H5971] ? or how [H349] can I endure [H3201] to see [H7200] the destruction [H13] of my kindred [H4138] ?(endure: Heb. be able that I may see)

8:7 Then the king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] said [H559] unto Esther [H635] the queen [H4436] and to Mordecai [H4782] the Jew [H3064] , Behold, I have given [H5414] Esther [H635] the house [H1004] of Haman [H2001] , and him they have hanged [H8518] upon the gallows [H6086] , because he laid [H7971] his hand [H3027] upon the Jews [H3064] .

8:8 Write [H3789] ye also for the Jews [H3064] , as it liketh [H2896] you [H5869] , in the king's [H4428] name [H8034] , and seal [H2856] [it] with the king's [H4428] ring [H2885] : for the writing [H3791] which is written [H3789] in the king's [H4428] name [H8034] , and sealed [H2856] with the king's [H4428] ring [H2885] , may no man reverse [H7725] .

8:9 Then were the king's [H4428] scribes [H5608] called [H7121] at that time [H6256] in the third [H7992] month [H2320] , that [is], the month [H2320] Sivan [H5510] , on the three [H7969] and twentieth [H6242] [day] thereof; and it was written [H3789] according to all that Mordecai [H4782] commanded [H6680] unto the Jews [H3064] , and to the lieutenants [H323] , and the deputies [H6346] and rulers [H8269] of the provinces [H4082] which [are] from India [H1912] unto Ethiopia [H3568] , an hundred [H3967] twenty [H6242] and seven [H7651] provinces [H4082] , unto every province [H4082] according to the writing [H3791] thereof, and unto every people [H5971] after their language [H3956] , and to the Jews [H3064] according to their writing [H3791] , and according to their language [H3956] .

8:10 And he wrote [H3789] in the king [H4428] Ahasuerus' [H325] name [H8034] , and sealed [H2856] [it] with the king's [H4428] ring [H2885] , and sent [H7971] letters [H5612] by [H3027] posts [H7323] on horseback [H5483] , [and] riders [H7392] on mules [H7409] , camels [H327] , [and] young [H1121] dromedaries [H7424] :

8:11 Wherein the king [H4428] granted [H5414] the Jews [H3064] which [were] in every city [H5892] to gather themselves together [H6950] , and to stand [H5975] for their life [H5315] , to destroy [H8045] , to slay [H2026] , and to cause to perish [H6] , all the power [H2428] of the people [H5971] and province [H4082] that would assault [H6696] them, [both] little ones [H2945] and women [H802] , and [to take] the spoil [H7998] of them for a prey [H962] ,

8:12 Upon one [H259] day [H3117] in all the provinces [H4082] of king [H4428] Ahasuerus [H325] , [namely], upon the thirteenth [H7969] [H6240] [day] of the twelfth [H8147] [H6240] month [H2320] , which [is] the month [H2320] Adar [H143] .

8:13 The copy [H6572] of the writing [H3791] for a commandment [H1881] to be given [H5414] in every province [H4082] [was] published [H1540] unto all people [H5971] , and that the Jews [H3064] should be ready [H6264] [H6259] against that day [H3117] to avenge [H5358] themselves on their enemies [H341] .(published: Heb. revealed)

8:14 [So] the posts [H7323] that rode [H7392] upon mules [H7409] [and] camels [H327] went out [H3318] , being hastened [H926] and pressed on [H1765] by the king's [H4428] commandment [H1697] . And the decree [H1881] was given [H5414] at Shushan [H7800] the palace [H1002] .

8:15 And Mordecai [H4782] went out [H3318] from the presence [H6440] of the king [H4428] in royal [H4438] apparel [H3830] of blue [H8504] and white [H2353] , and with a great [H1419] crown [H5850] of gold [H2091] , and with a garment [H8509] of fine linen [H948] and purple [H713] : and the city [H5892] of Shushan [H7800] rejoiced [H6670] and was glad [H8056] .(blue: or, violet)

8:16 The Jews [H3064] had light [H219] , and gladness [H8057] , and joy [H8342] , and honour [H3366] .

8:17 And in every province [H4082] , and in every city [H5892] , whithersoever [H4725] the king's [H4428] commandment [H1697] and his decree [H1881] came [H5060] , the Jews [H3064] had joy [H8057] and gladness [H8342] , a feast [H4960] and a good [H2896] day [H3117] .
