Eisteir 10 – אסתר י

t.o.c.

1And the king Akhashverosh 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 full account of the greatness of Mordakhai, how the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Madai and Paras? 3For Mordakhai the Yehudi was next unto king Akhashverosh, and great among the Yehudim, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren; seeking the good of his people and speaking peace to all his seed.
