- 7 In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth * * year of king Ahasuerus, they cast (8689) Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar. 8 And Haman said (8799) unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad (8794) and dispersed (8794) among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse (8802) from all people; neither keep (8802) they the king's laws: therefore it is not for the king's profit (8802) to suffer (8687) them. 9 If it please (8804) the king, let it be written (8735) that they may be destroyed (8763): and I will pay (8799) ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge (8802) of the business, to bring (8687) it into the king's treasuries. 10 And the king took (8686) his ring from his hand, and gave (8799) it unto Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the Jews' enemy (8802). 11 And the king said (8799) unto Haman, The silver is given (8803) to thee, the people also, to do (8800) with them as it seemeth good to thee. 12 Then were the king's scribes (8802) called (8735) on the thirteenth * * day of the first month, and there was written (8735) according to all that Haman had commanded (8765) unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors that were over every province, and to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Ahasuerus was it written (8737), and sealed (8738) with the king's ring. 13 And the letters were sent (8736) by posts (8801) into all the king's provinces, to destroy (8687), to kill (8800), and to cause to perish (8763), all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth * * month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey (8800). 14 The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given (8736) in every province was published (8803) unto all people, that they should be ready against that day. 15 The posts (8801) went out (8804), being hastened (8803) by the king's commandment, and the decree was given (8738) in Shushan the palace. And the king and Haman sat down (8804) to drink (8800); but the city Shushan was perplexed (8737).
