1 The king Ahasuerus laid a tribute on the land, and on the isles
of the sea. 2 All the acts of his power and of his might, and the full
account of the greatness of Mordecai, whereunto the king advanced him, arenít
they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia?
3 For Mordecai the Jew was next to king Ahasuerus, and great among the
Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brothers, seeking the good of his
people, and speaking peace to all his seed.
