Esther 6 Text (WEB)
  1. On that night, the king couldn't sleep. He commanded the book of records of the chronicles to be brought, and they were read to the king.
  2. It was found written that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's eunuchs, who were doorkeepers, who had tried to lay hands on the King Ahasuerus.
  3. The king said, "What honor and dignity has been bestowed on Mordecai for this?" Then the king's servants who attended him said, "Nothing has been done for him."
  4. The king said, "Who is in the court?" Now Haman had come into the outer court of the king's house, to speak to the king about hanging Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.
  5. The king's servants said to him, "Behold, Haman stands in the court." The king said, "Let him come in."
  6. So Haman came in. The king said to him, "What shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?" Now Haman said in his heart, "Who would the king delight to honor more than myself?"
  7. Haman said to the king, "For the man whom the king delights to honor,
  8. let royal clothing be brought which the king uses to wear, and the horse that the king rides on, and on the head of which a crown royal is set.
  9. Let the clothing and the horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the man whom the king delights to honor with them, and have him ride on horseback through the city square, and proclaim before him, 'Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights to honor!'"
Esther 6 Text (Hebrew)
  1. בלילה ההוא נדדה שנת המלך ויאמר להביא את־ספר הזכרנות דברי הימים ויהיו נקראים לפני המלך׃
  2. וימצא כתוב אשר הגיד מרדכי על־בגתנא ותרש שני סריסי המלך משמרי הסף אשר בקשו לשלח יד במלך אחשורוש׃
  3. ויאמר המלך מה־נעשה יקר וגדולה למרדכי על־זה ויאמרו נערי המלך משרתיו לא־נעשה עמו דבר׃
  4. ויאמר המלך מי בחצר והמן בא לחצר בית־המלך החיצונה לאמר למלך לתלות את־מרדכי על־העץ אשר־הכין לו׃
  5. ויאמרו נערי המלך אליו הנה המן עמד בחצר ויאמר המלך יבוא׃
  6. ויבוא המן ויאמר לו המלך מה־לעשות באיש אשר המלך חפץ ביקרו ויאמר המן בלבו למי יחפץ המלך לעשות יקר יותר ממני׃
  7. ויאמר המן אל־המלך איש אשר המלך חפץ ביקרו׃
  8. יביאו לבוש מלכות אשר לבש־בו המלך וסוס אשר רכב עליו המלך ואשר נתן כתר מלכות בראשו׃
  9. ונתון הלבוש והסוס על־יד־איש משרי המלך הפרתמים והלבישו את־האיש אשר המלך חפץ ביקרו והרכיבהו על־הסוס ברחוב העיר וקראו לפניו ככה יעשה לאיש אשר המלך חפץ ביקרו׃
Esther 6 Text (Greek)
  1. ο δε κυριος απεστησεν τον υπνον απο του βασιλεως την νυκτα εκεινην και ειπεν τω διδασκαλω αυτου εισφερειν γραμματα μνημοσυνα των ημερων αναγινωσκειν
  2. ευρεν δε τα γραμματα τα γραφεντα περι μαρδοχαιου ως απηγγειλεν τω βασιλει περι των δυο ευνουχων του βασιλεως εν τω φυλασσειν αυτους και ζητησαι επιβαλειν τας χειρας
  3. ειπεν δε ο βασιλευς τινα δοξαν η χαριν εποιησαμεν τω μαρδοχαιω και ειπαν οι διακονοι του βασιλεως ουκ εποιησας αυτω
  4. εν δε τω πυνθανεσθαι τον βασιλεα περι της ευνοιας μαρδοχαιου ιδου αμαν εν τη αυλη ειπεν δε ο βασιλευς τις εν τη αυλη ο δε αμαν εισηλθεν ειπειν τω βασιλει κρεμασαι τον μαρδοχαιον επι τω ξυλω ω
  5. και ειπαν οι διακονοι του βασιλεως ιδου αμαν εστηκεν εν τη αυλη και ειπεν ο βασιλευς καλεσατε
  6. ειπεν δε ο βασιλευς τω αμαν τι ποιησω τω ανθρωπω ον εγω θελω δοξασαι ειπεν δε εν εαυτω αμαν τινα θελει ο βασιλευς δοξασαι ει μη
  7. ειπεν δε προς τον βασιλεα ανθρωπον ον ο βασιλευς θελει
  8. ενεγκατωσαν οι παιδες του βασιλεως στολην βυσσινην ην ο βασιλευς περιβαλλεται και ιππον εφ' ον ο βασιλευς
  9. και δοτω ενι των φιλων του βασιλεως των ενδοξων και στολισατω τον ανθρωπον ον ο βασιλευς αγαπα και αναβιβασατω αυτον επι τον ιππον και κηρυσσετω δια της πλατειας της πολεως λεγων ουτως εσται παντι ανθρωπω ον ο βασιλευς
Esther 6 Text (Latin)
  1. Noctem illam duxit rex insomnem, jussitque sibi afferri historias et annales priorum temporum. Quæ cum illo præsente legerentur,
  2. ventum est ad illum locum ubi scriptum erat quomodo nuntiasset Mardochæus insidias Bagathan, et Thares eunuchorum, regem Assuerum jugulare cupientium.
  3. Quod cum audisset rex, ait : Quid pro hac fide honoris ac præmii Mardochæus consecutus est ? Dixerunt ei servi illius ac ministri : Nihil omnino mercedis accepit.
  4. Statimque rex, Quis est, inquit, in atrio ? Aman quippe interius atrium domus regiæ intraverat, ut suggereret regi, et juberet Mardochæum affigi patibulo, quod ei fuerat præparatum.
  5. Responderunt pueri : Aman stat in atrio. Dixitque rex : Ingrediatur.
  6. Cumque esset ingressus, ait illi : Quid debet fieri viro, quem rex honorare desiderat? Cogitans autem in corde suo Aman, et reputans quod nullum alium rex, nisi se, vellet honorare,
  7. respondit : Homo, quem rex honorare cupit,
  8. debet indui vestibus regiis, et imponi super equum, qui de sella regis est, et accipere regium diadema super caput suum,
  9. et primus de regiis principibus, ac tyrannis teneat equum ejus, et per plateam civitatis incedens clamet, et dicat : Sic honorabitur, quemcumque voluerit rex honorare.
Esther 6 Text (KJV)
  1. On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.
  2. And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus.
  3. And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.
  4. And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman was come into the outward court of the king's house, to speak unto the king to hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.
  5. And the king's servants said unto him, Behold, Haman standeth in the court. And the king said, Let him come in.
  6. So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?
  7. And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour,
  8. Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head:
  9. And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour.
