Esther 8

Mordecai is advanced.

Esther 8:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he [was] unto her. Esther 8:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.

Esther maketh suit to reverse Haman's letters.

Esther 8:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Esther spoke yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews. Esther 8:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then the king held out the golden scepter toward Esther. So Esther arose, and stood before the king, Esther 8:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And said, If it please the king, and if I have found favor in his sight, and the thing [seem] right before the king, and I [be] pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which [are] in all the king's provinces: Esther 8:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred?

Ahasuerus granteth to the Jews to defend themselves.

Esther 8:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews. Esther 8:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal [it] with the king's ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse. Esther 8:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that [is], the month Sivan, on the three and twentieth [day] thereof; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded unto the Jews, and to the lieutenants, and the deputies and rulers of the provinces which [are] from India unto Ethiopia, a hundred twenty and seven provinces, unto every province according to the writing thereof, and unto every people after their language, and to the Jews according to their writing, and according to their language. Esther 8:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus' name, and sealed [it] with the king's ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, [and] riders on mules, camels, [and] young dromedaries: Esther 8:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Wherein the king granted the Jews which [were] in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay, and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, [both] little ones and women, and [to take] the spoil of them for a prey, Esther 8:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Upon one day in all the provinces of king Ahasuerus, [namely], upon the thirteenth [day] of the twelfth month, which [is] the month Adar. Esther 8:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province [was] published unto all people, and that the Jews should be ready against that day to avenge themselves on their enemies. Esther 8:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} [So] the posts that rode upon mules [and] camels went out, being hastened and pressed on by the king's commandment. And the decree was given at Shushan the palace.

Mordecai's honour, and the Jews' joy.

Esther 8:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad. Esther 8:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honor. Esther 8:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.
