- 1 After these events King Ahasuerus promoted R44 Haman, the son of Hammedatha the R45 Agagite, and advanced R44 him and established F25 his authority over all the princes who were with him. 2 All the king's servants who were at the king's gate bowed down and F26 paid homage to Haman; for so the king had commanded concerning him. But Mordecai R46 neither bowed down nor paid homage. 3 Then the king's servants who were at the R47 king's gate said to Mordecai, "Why R48 are you transgressing the king's command?" 4 Now it was when they had spoken daily to him and he would not listen to them, that they told Haman to see whether Mordecai's reason would stand; for he had told them that he was a Jew. 5 When Haman saw that Mordecai R49 neither bowed down nor paid homage to him, Haman was filled with rage. 6 But he disdained F27 to lay F28 hands on Mordecai alone, for they had told him who the people of Mordecai were; therefore Haman sought R50 to destroy all the Jews, the people of Mordecai, who were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus.
F25 Lit set his seat
F26 Lit and prostrated themselves before
F27 Lit despised in his eyes
F28 Lit send a hand against
