The Book of Esther (from Wikipedia)
of Esther is one of the books of the Hebrew
Bible. The Book of Esther or the Megillah is the basis for
celebration of Purim.
Its full text is read aloud twice during the celebration, in the evening and
again the following morning.
The Biblical Book of Esther is set in the third year of Ahasuerus,
a king of Persia. The name Ahasuerus is equivalent to Xerxes, both
deriving from the Persian Khashayarsha, thus Ahasuerus is usually
identified as Xerxes I (486-465 BCE), though Ahasuerus is identified as Artaxerxes in the later Greek version of Esther (as well as by Josephus, the Jewish commentary Esther Rabbah, the Ethiopic translation and the Christian theologian Bar-Hebraeus who identified him more precisely as Artaxerxes II ). The Book of Esther tells a story of palace intrigue and genocide thwarted by a Jewish queen of Persia.
The book commences with a feast organized by Ahasuerus, initially
for his court and dignitaries and afterwards for all inhabitants of Shushan. Ahasuerus orders his wife Vashti
to display her beauty before the guests. She refuses. Ahasuerus removes
her as queen. Ahasuerus then orders all "beautiful young girls to be
presented to him, so he can choose a new queen to replace Vashti. One
of these is Esther, who had no parents and is being fostered by her
She finds favor in the king's eyes, and is made his new wife. Esther
does not reveal that she is Jewish. Shortly afterwards, Mordechai
discovers a plot by courtiers Bigthan and Teresh to assassinate
Ahasuerus. They are apprehended and executed, and Mordechai's service
to the king is recorded.
Ahasuerus appoints Haman
as his prime minister. Mordechai, who sits at the palace gates, falls
into Haman's disfavor as he refuses to bow down to him. Having found
out that Mordechai is Jewish, Haman plans to kill not just Mordechai
but all the Jews in the empire. He obtains Ahasuerus' permission to
execute this plan, against payment of ten thousand talents of silver,
and he casts lots to choose the date on which to do this - the
thirteenth of the month of Adar. When Mordechai finds out about the
plans he orders fasting. Mordechai informs Esther what has happened and
tells her to intercede with the King. She is afraid to break the law
and go to the King uninvited. This entails the death penalty. Mordechai
tells her that she must. She requests that all Jews fast and pray for
three days together with her, and on the third day she goes to
Ahasuerus,who stretches out his sceptre to her which shows that she is
not to be punished. She invites him to a feast in the company of Haman.
During the feast, she asks them to attend a further feast the next
evening. Meanwhile, Haman is again offended by Mordechai and builds a
gallows for him. That night, Ahasuerus suffers from insomnia, and when
the court's records are read to him to help him sleep, he learns of the
services rendered by Mordechai in the previous plot against his life.
Ahasuerus is told that Mordechai has not received any recognition for
saving the king's life. Just then, Haman appears, and King Ahasuerus
asks Haman what should be done for the man that he wishes to honor.
Thinking that the man that the king wishes to honor is him, Haman says
that the man should be dressed in the king's royal robes and led around
on the king's royal horse, while a herald calls: "See how the king honours a man he wishes to reward!" To his horror, the king instructs Haman to do so to Mordechai.
Later that evening, Ahasuerus and Haman attend Esther's second
banquet, at which she reveals that she is Jewish and that Haman is
planning to exterminate her people, including her. Overcome by rage,
Ahasuerus leaves the room; meanwhile Haman stays behind and begs Esther
for his life, falling upon her in desperation. The king comes back in
at this moment and thinks Haman is assaulting the queen; this makes him
angrier than before and he orders Haman hanged on the gallows that had
been prepared for Mordechai. The previous decree against the Jews
cannot be annulled, but the king allows the Jews to defend themselves
during attacks. As a result, on 13 Adar, five hundred attackers and
Haman's ten sons are killed in Shushan. Mordechai assumes a prominent
position in Ahasuerus' court, and institutes an annual commemoration of
the delivery of the Jewish people from annihilation.
