Excerpt
Book 17. Esther 17:001:001. Now it came to pass in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces:) 17:001:002 That in those days, when the king Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace, 17:001:003 In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him: 17:001:004 When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honor of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days. 17:001:005 and when these days were expired, the king made a feast unto all the people that were present in Shushan the palace, both unto great and small, seven days, in the court of the garden of the king?s palace; 17:001:006 Where were white, green, and blue, hangings, fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and pillars of marble: the beds were of gold and silver, upon a pavement of red, and blue, and white, and black, marble. 17:001:007 and they gave them drink in vessels of gold, (the vessels being diverse one from another,) and royal wine in abundance, according to the state of the king. 17:001:008 and the drinking was according to the law; none did compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man?s pleasure. 17:001:009 Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus. 17:001:010 On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven chamberlains that served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king, 17:001:011 To bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: for she was fair to look on. 17:001:012 But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king?s commandment by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him. 17:001:013 Then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king?s manner toward all that knew law and judgment.
