Brenton Septuagint LXX Esther 1:1 Strong's Numbers Cross ReferencesPost My Notes on Esther 1:1 Commentary Added Online 1:1 ¶ In the second year of the reign of Artaxerxes the great king, on the first [day] of Nisan, Mordecai{gr.Mardochaeus} the [son] of Jairus, the [son] of Semeias, the [son] of Chisaeus, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Jew dwelling in the city Shushan{gr.Susa}, a great man, serving in the king's palace, saw a vision. Now he was of the captivity which Nebuchadnezzar{gr.Nabuchodonosor} king of Babylon had carried captive from Jerusalem, with Jeconiah{gr.Jechonias} the king of Judah{gr.Judea}. And this [was] his dream: Behold, voices and a noise, thunders and earthquake, tumult upon the earth. And, behold, two great serpents came forth, both ready for conflict, and there came from them a great voice, and by their voice of every nation was prepared for battle, even to fight against the nation of the just. And, behold, a day of darkness and blackness, tribulation and anguish, affliction and great tumult upon the earth. And all the righteous nation was troubled, fearing their own afflictions; and they prepared to die, and cried to God: and from their cry there came as it were a great river from a little fountain, [even] much water. And light and the sun arose, and the lowly were exalted, and devoured the honourable. And Mordecai{gr.Mardochaeus} who had seen this vision and what God designed to do, having awoke, kept in his heart, and desired by all means to interpret it, even till night. And Mordecai{gr.Mardochaeus} rested quiet in the palace with Gabatha and Terah{gr.Tharrha} the king's two chamberlains, eunuchs who guarded the palace. And he heard their reasonings and searched out their plans, and learnt that they were preparing to lay hands on king Artaxerxes: and he informed the king concerning them. And the king examined the two chamberlains, and they confessed, and were executed. And the king wrote these things for a memorial; also Mordecai{gr.Mardochaeus} wrote concerning these matters. And the king commanded Mordecai{gr.Mardochaeus} to attend in the palace, and gave him gifts for this service. And Haman{gr.Aman} the son of Amadathes the Bugaean was honourable in the sight of the two kings, and he endeavoured to hurt Mordecai{gr.Mardochaeus} and his people, because of the two chamberlains of the king. And it came to pass after these things in the days of Artaxerxes.-- (this Artaxerxes ruled over a hundred and twenty-seven provinces from India)--
