Esther 1 Text (WEB)
  1. Now it happened in the days of Ahasuerus (this is Ahasuerus who reigned from India even to Ethiopia, over one hundred twenty-seven provinces),
  2. that in those days, when the King Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace,
  3. in the third year of his reign, he made a feast for all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him.
  4. He displayed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honor of his excellent majesty many days, even one hundred eighty days.
  5. When these days were fulfilled, the king made a seven day feast for all the people who were present in Shushan the palace, both great and small, in the court of the garden of the king's palace.
  6. There were hangings of white, green, and blue material, fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and marble pillars. The couches were of gold and silver, on a pavement of red, white, yellow, and black marble.
  7. They gave them drinks in golden vessels of various kinds, including royal wine in abundance, according to the bounty of the king.
  8. In accordance with the law, the drinking was not compulsory; for so the king had instructed all the officials of his house, that they should do according to every man's pleasure.
  9. Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to King Ahasuerus.
  10. On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcass, the seven eunuchs who served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king,
  11. to bring Vashti the queen before the king with the royal crown, to show the people and the princes her beauty; for she was beautiful.
Esther 1 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויהי בימי אחשורוש הוא אחשורוש המלך מהדו ועד־כוש שבע ועשרים ומאה מדינה׃
  2. בימים ההם כשבת המלך אחשורוש על כסא מלכותו אשר בשושן הבירה׃
  3. בשנת שלוש למלכו עשה משתה לכל־שריו ועבדיו חיל פרס ומדי הפרתמים ושרי המדינות לפניו׃
  4. בהראתו את־עשר כבוד מלכותו ואת־יקר תפארת גדולתו ימים רבים שמונים ומאת יום׃
  5. ובמלואת הימים האלה עשה המלך לכל־העם הנמצאים בשושן הבירה למגדול ועד־קטן משתה שבעת ימים בחצר גנת ביתן המלך׃
  6. חור כרפס ותכלת אחוז בחבלי־בוץ וארגמן על־גלילי כסף ועמודי שש מטות זהב וכסף על רצפת בהט־ושש ודר וסחרת׃
  7. והשקות בכלי זהב וכלים מכלים שונים ויין מלכות רב כיד המלך׃
  8. והשתיה כדת אין אנס כי־כן יסד המלך על כל־רב ביתו לעשות כרצון איש־ואיש׃
  9. גם ושתי המלכה עשתה משתה נשים בית המלכות אשר למלך אחשורוש׃ ס
  10. ביום השביעי כטוב לב־המלך ביין אמר למהומן בזתא חרבונא בגתא ואבגתא זתר וכרכס שבעת הסריסים המשרתים את־פני המלך אחשורוש׃
  11. להביא את־ושתי המלכה לפני המלך בכתר מלכות להראות העמים והשרים את־יפיה כי־טובת מראה היא׃

Esther 1 Text (Latin)
  1. In diebus Assueri, qui regnavit ab India usque Æthiopiam super centum viginti septem provincias :
  2. quando sedit in solio regni sui, Susan civitas regni ejus exordium fuit.
  3. Tertio igitur anno imperii sui fecit grande convivium cunctis principibus, et pueris suis, fortissimis Persarum, et Medorum inclytis, et præfectis provinciarum coram se,
  4. ut ostenderet divitias gloriæ regni sui, ac magnitudinem, atque jactantiam potentiæ suæ, multo tempore, centum videlicet et octoginta diebus.
  5. Cumque implerentur dies convivii, invitavit omnem populum, qui inventus est in Susan, a maximo usque ad minimum : et jussit septem diebus convivium præparari in vestibulo horti, et nemoris, quod regio cultu et manu consitum erat.
  6. Et pendebant ex omni parte tentoria ærii coloris et carbasini ac hyacinthini, sustentata funibus byssinis, atque purpureis, qui eburneis circulis inserti erant, et columnis marmoreis fulciebantur. Lectuli quoque aurei et argentei, super pavimentum smaragdino et pario stratum lapide, dispositi erant : quod mira varietate pictura decorabat.
  7. Bibebant autem qui invitati erant, aureis poculis, et aliis atque aliis vasis cibi inferebantur. Vinum quoque, ut magnificentia regia dignum erat, abundans, et præcipuum ponebatur.
  8. Nec erat qui nolentes cogeret ad bibendum, sed sicut rex statuerat, præponens mensis singulos de principibus suis ut sumeret unusquisque quod vellet.
  9. Vasthi quoque regina fecit convivium feminarum in palatio, ubi rex Assuerus manere consueverat.
  10. Itaque die septimo, cum rex esset hilarior, et post nimiam potationem incaluisset mero, præcepit Maumam, et Bazatha, et Harbona, et Bagatha, et Abgatha, et Zethar, et Charchas, septem eunuchis, qui in conspectu ejus ministrabant,
  11. ut introducerent reginam Vasthi coram rege, posito super caput ejus diademate, ut ostenderet cunctis populis et principibus pulchritudinem illius : erat enim pulchra valde.
Esther 1 Text (KJV)
  1. 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:)
  2. That in those days, when the king Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace,
  3. 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:
  4. When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days.
  5. 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;
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus.
  10. 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,
  11. 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.
