And the king Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and
upon the isles of the sea.
2And all the acts of his power and
of his might, and the declaration of the greatness of Mordecai,
whereunto the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of
the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia?
the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and
accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his
people, and speaking peace to all his seed.

The Book of Esther Which are Found Neither in the Hebrew, nor in the Chaldee
4Then Mardocheus said, God hath done these things.
5For I remember a dream which I saw concerning these matters,
and nothing thereof hath failed.
6A little fountain became a river, and there was light, and
the sun, and much water: this river is Esther, whom the king married,
and made queen:
7And the two dragons are I and Aman.
8And the nations were those that were assembled to destroy the
name of the Jews:
9And my nation is this Israel, which cried to God, and were
saved: for the Lord hath saved his people, and the Lord hath delivered
us from all those evils, and God hath wrought signs and great wonders,
which have not been done among the Gentiles.
10Therefore hath he made two lots, one for the people of God,
and another for all the Gentiles.
11And these two lots came at the hour, and time, and day of
judgment, before God among all nations.
12So God remembered his people, and justified his inheritance.
13Therefore those days shall be unto them in the month Adar,
the fourteenth and fifteenth day of the same month, with an assembly,
and joy, and with gladness before God, according to the generations for
ever among his people.
