Esther Addition 10
AddEsth 10:6 A 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:
AddEsth 10:9 And 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.
AddEsth 10:5 For I remember a dream which I saw concerning these matters,
and nothing thereof hath failed.
AddEsth 10:7 And the two dragons are I and Aman.
AddEsth 10:4 Then Mardocheus said, God hath done these things.
AddEsth 10:8 And the nations were those that were assembled to destroy the
name of the Jews:
AddEsth 10:10 Therefore hath he made two lots, one for the people of God,
and another for all the Gentiles.
AddEsth 10:11 And these two lots came at the hour, and time, and day of
judgment, before God among all nations.
AddEsth 10:13 Therefore 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.
AddEsth 10:12 So God remembered his people, and justified his inheritance.Esther Addition 11
AddEsth 11:5 Behold a noise of a tumult, with thunder, and earthquakes,
and uproar in the land:
AddEsth 11:8 And lo a day of darkness and obscurity, tribulation and
anguish, affliction and great uproar, upon earth.
AddEsth 11:2 In the second year of the reign of Artexerxes the great, in
the first day of the month Nisan, Mardocheus the son of Jairus,
the son of Semei, the son of Cisai, of the tribe of Benjamin,
had a dream;
AddEsth 11:6 And, behold, two great dragons came forth ready to fight, and
their cry was great.
AddEsth 11:4 He was also one of the captives, which Nabuchodonosor the
king of Babylon carried from Jerusalem with Jechonias king of
Judea; and this was his dream:
AddEsth 11:11 The light and the sun rose up, and the lowly were exalted,
and devoured the glorious.
AddEsth 11:7 And at their cry all nations were prepared to battle, that
they might fight against the righteous people.
AddEsth 11:10 Then they cried unto God, and upon their cry, as it were from
a little fountain, was made a great flood, even much water.
AddEsth 11:9 And the whole righteous nation was troubled, fearing their
own evils, and were ready to perish.
AddEsth 11:1 In the fourth year of the reign of Ptolemeus and Cleopatra,
Dositheus, who said he was a priest and Levite, and Ptolemeus
his son, brought this epistle of Phurim, which they said was the
same, and that Lysimachus the son of Ptolemeus, that was in
Jerusalem, had interpreted it.
AddEsth 11:12 Now when Mardocheus, who had seen this dream, and what God
had determined to do, was awake, he bare this dream in mind, and
until night by all means was desirous to know it.
AddEsth 11:3 Who was a Jew, and dwelt in the city of Susa, a great man,
being a servitor in the king's court.Esther Addition 12
AddEsth 12:6 Howbeit Aman the son of Amadathus the Agagite, who was in
great honour with the king, sought to molest Mardocheus and his
people because of the two eunuchs of the king.
AddEsth 12:2 And he heard their devices, and searched out their purposes,
and learned that they were about to lay hands upon Artexerxes
the king; and so he certified the king of them.
AddEsth 12:3 Then the king examined the two eunuchs, and after that they
had confessed it, they were strangled.
AddEsth 12:4 And the king made a record of these things, and Mardocheus
also wrote thereof.
AddEsth 12:5 So the king commanded, Mardocheus to serve in the court, and
for this he rewarded him.
AddEsth 12:1And Mardocheus took his rest in the court with Gabatha and
Tharra, the two eunuchs of the king, and keepers of the palace.Esther Addition 13
AddEsth 13:18 All Israel in like manner cried most earnestly unto the Lord,
because their death was before their eyes.
AddEsth 13:8 Then Mardocheus thought upon all the works of the Lord, and
made his prayer unto him,
AddEsth 13:17 Hear my prayer, and be merciful unto thine inheritance: turn
our sorrow into joy, that we may live, O Lord, and praise thy
name: and destroy not the mouths of them that praise thee, O
AddEsth 13:15 And now, O Lord God and King, spare thy people: for their
eyes are upon us to bring us to nought; yea, they desire to
destroy the inheritance, that hath been thine from the
AddEsth 13:16 Despise not the portion, which thou hast delivered out of
Egypt for thine own self.
AddEsth 13:12 Thou knowest all things, and thou knowest, Lord, that it was
neither in contempt nor pride, nor for any desire of glory, that
I did not bow down to proud Aman.
AddEsth 13:2 After that I became lord over many nations and had dominion
over the whole world, not lifted up with presumption of my
authority, but carrying myself always with equity and mildness,
I purposed to settle my subjects continually in a quiet life,
and making my kingdom peaceable, and open for passage to the
utmost coasts, to renew peace, which is desired of all men.
AddEsth 13:1 The copy of the letters was this: The great king Artexerxes
writeth these things to the princes and governours that are under
him from India unto Ethiopia in an hundred and seven and twenty
AddEsth 13:4 Declared unto us, that in all nations throughout the world
there was scattered a certain malicious people, that had laws
contrary to ail nations, and continually despised the
commandments of kings, so as the uniting of our kingdoms,
honourably intended by us cannot go forward.
AddEsth 13:5 Seeing then we understand that this people alone is
continually in opposition unto all men, differing in the strange
manner of their laws, and evil affected to our state, working
all the mischief they can that our kingdom may not be firmly
AddEsth 13:6 Therefore have we commanded, that all they that are signified
in writing unto you by Aman, who is ordained over the affairs,
and is next unto us, shall all, with their wives and children,
be utterly destroyed by the sword of their enemies, without all
mercy and pity, the fourteenth day of the twelfth month Adar of
this present year:
AddEsth 13:7 That they, who of old and now also are malicious, may in one
day with violence go into the grave, and so ever hereafter cause
our affairs to be well settled, and without trouble.
AddEsth 13:3 Now when I asked my counsellors how this might be brought to
pass, Aman, that excelled in wisdom among us, and was approved
for his constant good will and steadfast fidelity, and had the
honour of the second place in the kingdom,
AddEsth 13:9 Saying, O Lord, Lord, the King Almighty: for the whole world
is in thy power, and if thou hast appointed to save Israel,
there is no man that can gainsay thee:
AddEsth 13:10 For thou hast made heaven and earth, and all the wondrous
things under the heaven.
AddEsth 13:11 Thou art Lord of all things, and and there is no man that can
resist thee, which art the Lord.
AddEsth 13:13 For I could have been content with good will for the
salvation of Israel to kiss the soles of his feet.
AddEsth 13:14 But I did this, that I might not prefer the glory of man
above the glory of God: neither will I worship any but thee, O
God, neither will I do it in pride.
