Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:1 - After these things did king Achashverosh promote Haman the son of Hammedata the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes who were with him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:2 - All the king's servants, who were in the king's gate, bowed down, and did reverence to Haman; for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordekhai didn't bow down, nor did him reverence.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:3 - Then the king's servants, who were in the king's gate, said to Mordekhai, Why disobey you the king's mitzvah?

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:4 - Now it came to pass, when they spoke daily to him, and he didn't listen to them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordekhai's matters would stand: for he had told those who he was a Yehudi.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:5 - When Haman saw that Mordekhai didn't bow down, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:6 - But he scorned the thought of laying hands on Mordekhai alone; for they had made known to him the people of Mordekhai: therefore Haman sought to destroy all the Yehudim who were throughout the whole kingdom of Achashverosh, even the people of Mordekhai.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:7 - In the first month, which is the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Achashverosh, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, which is the month Adar.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:8 - Haman said to king Achashverosh, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the peoples in all the provinces of your kingdom; and their laws are diverse from those of every people; neither keep they the king's laws: therefore it is not for the king's profit to allow them.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:9 - If it please the king, let it be written that they be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who have the charge of the king's business, to bring it into the king's treasuries.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:10 - The king took his ring from his hand, and gave it to Haman the son of Hammedata the Agagite, the Yehudim' enemy.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:11 - The king said to Haman, The silver is given to you, the people also, to do with them as it seems good to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:12 - Then were the king's Sofrim called in the first month, on the thirteenth day of it; and there was written according to all that Haman commanded to the king's satraps, and to the governors who were over every province, and to the princes of every people, to every province according to the writing of it, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Achashverosh was it written, and it was sealed with the king's ring.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:13 - Letters were sent by posts into all the king's provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Yehudim, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:14 - A copy of the writing, that the decree should be given out in every province, was published to all the peoples, that they should be ready against that day.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 3:15 - The posts went forth in haste by the king's mitzvah, and the decree was given out in Shushan the palace. The king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city of Shushan was perplexed.
