Esther 3:1-15
1. After these acts did the king promote Haman the son of Amadatha the Agagite, and set him high, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him.
2. And all the king's servants that were in the gate, bowed their knees, and did reverenced unto Haman: for the king had so commanded. But Mardocheus bowed not the knee, and worshiped him not.
3. Then the king's servants which were in the king's gate, said unto Mardocheus: Why transgressest thou the king's commandment?
4. And when they spake this daily unto him and he followed them not, they told Haman, that they might see whether Mardocheus' matters would endure: for he had told them, that he was a Jew.
5. And when Haman saw, that Mardocheus bowed not the knee unto him, nor worshipped him, he was full of indignation (and despite)
6. and thought it too little to lay hands(and despyte, that he shulde laye hondes) onely on Mardocheus: for they had shewed him the nation(people) of Mardocheus, but he sought to destroy all the Jews the nation(people) of Mardocheus, that were in the whole empire of Ahasuerus.
7. In the first month (that is the month Nisan) in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus they cast Phur, (that is a lot) before Haman, on what day and what month this should be done: and it went out the twelfth month that is the month Adar.(was there occasion and oportunity sought by Aman, from one day to another, and from the same month unto the twelfth month, that is the month Adar.)
8. And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus: There is a people scattered abroad and dispersed among all people in all the lands of thine empire, and their law is contrary unto all people, and they do not after the king's laws, neither is it the king's profit to suffer them after this manner.
9. If it please the king, let him write, that they may be destroyed, and so will I weigh down ten thousand talents of silver, under the hands of the workmen, to be brought into the king's chamber.
10. Then took the king his ring from his hand, and gave it unto Haman the son of Amadatha the Agagite, the Jews' enemy.
11. And the king said unto Haman: Let the silver be given thee, and that people also, to do with all what pleaseth thee.
12. Then were the king's scribes called on the thirteenth day of the first month, and there was written (according as Haman commanded) unto the king's princes, and to the captains(Debytes) everywhere in the lands, and to the rulers of every people in the countries on every side, according to the writing of every nation, and after their language in the name of king Ahasuerus, and sealed with the king's ring.
13. And the writings were sent by posts in to all the king's lands, to root out, to kill, and to destroy all Jews, both young and old, children and women in one day, (namely upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar) and to spoil their goods.
14. This was the sum of the writing, that there should be a commandment given in all lands, to be published unto all people, that they should be ready against the same day.
15. And the posts went in all the haste according to the king's commandment. And in the castle of Susan was the commandment devised. And the king and Haman sat and drank. But the city Susan was disquieted.

Esther 4:1-17
1. When Mardocheus perceived all that was done, he rent his clothes, and put on sack cloth, and ashes, and went out into the midst(middes) of the city, and cried loud and lamentably,
2. and came before the king's gate: for there might no man enter within the king's gate, that hath(had a) sack cloth on.
3. And in all lands and places, as far as the king's word and commandment extended, there was great lamentation among the Jews and many fasted, wept, mourned and lay in sack clothes and in ashes.
4. So Esther's damsels and her chamberlains, came and told it her. Then was the queen exceedingly astonied. And she sent raiment, that Mardocheus should put them on, and lay the sackcloth from him. But Mardocheus would not take them.
5. Then called Esther Hathath one of the king's chamberlains (which stood before her) and gave him a commandment to Mardocheus, that he might know what it were, and wherefore he did so.
6. So Hathath went forth to Mardocheus unto the street of the city, which was before the king's gate.
7. And Mardocheus told him of all that had happened unto him, and of the sum of silver that Haman had promised to weigh down in the king's chamber because of the Jews, for to destroy them.
8. And he gave him the copy of the commandment, that was devised at Susan to destroy them, that he might shew it unto Esther, and to speak to her and charge her, that she should go into the king, and make her prayer and supplication unto him for her people.
9. And when Hathath came in, and told Esther the words of Mardocheus,
10. Esther spake unto Hathath, and commanded him to say unto Mardocheus:
11. All the king's servants, and the people in the lands of the king know, that whosoever cometh within the court unto the king, whether it be man or woman, which is not called, the commandment is that the same shall die immediately, except the king hold out the golden scepter unto him, that he may live. As for me, I have not been called to come in to the king now this thirty days.
12. And when Mardocheus was certified of Esther's words,
13. Mardocheus bade say again unto Esther: think not to save thine own life, while thou art in the king's house before all Jews:
14. for if thou holdest thy peace at this time, then shall the Jews have help and deliverance out of another place, and thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed. And who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom, for this time's sake?
15. Esther bade, give Mardocheus this answer:
16. Go thou thy way then, and gather together all the Jews that are found at Susan, and fast ye for me, that ye eat not and drink not in three days, neither day nor night. I and my damsels will fast likewise, and so will I go in to the king contrary to the commandment: if I perish, I perish.
17. So Mardocheus went his way, and did all that Esther had commanded him.

Psalms 89:46-52
46. LORD, how long wilt thou hide thyself? for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?
47. O remember how short my time is, hast thou made all men for naught?
48. What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? May a man deliver his own soul from the hand of hell? Selah.
49. Lord,(LORDE) where are thy old loving-kindnesses, which thou sworest unto David in thy truth?
50. Remember Lord(LORDE) the rebuke that the multitude of the people do unto thy servants, and how I have borne it in my bosom.
51. Wherewith (O LORD) thine enemies blaspheme thee,(blasphemethe) and slander(sclaunder) the footsteps of thine anointed.
52. Thanks be to the LORD for evermore: Amen: Amen.

Proverbs 22:7-8
7. The rich ruleth the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
8. He that soweth wickedness shall reap sorrow, and the rod of his plague shall destroy him.

Romans 3:1-31
1. What preferment(furtherance) than hath the jew? other what advantageth circumcision?
2. Surely very much. First unto them was committed the word of God.(what God spake)
3. What then though some of them did not believe? shall their unbelief make the promise of God without effect?
4. God forbid. Let God be true, and all men liars, as it is written: That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings and shouldest overcome when thou art judged.
5. If our unrighteousness make the righteousness of God more excellent: what shall we say? Is God unrighteous which taketh vengeance?(Is God then unrighteous, that he is angry therefore?) (I speak after the manner of men.)
6. God forbid. For how then shall God judge the world?
7. if the verity(trueth) of God appear more excellent thorow my lie,(lye) unto his praise, why am I hence forth judged as a sinner?
8. and say not rather (as men evil speak of us, and as some affirm(report) that we say) let us do evil, that good may come thereof. Whose damnation is just.(inst)
9. What say we then? Are we better than they? no, in no wise. For we have all ready proved how that both jews and gentiles are all under sin,
10. as it is written: There is none righteous, no not one:
11. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God,
12. they are all gone out of the way, they are all made unprofitable, there is none that doeth good, no not one.
13. Their throat is an open sepulchre, with their tongues they have deceived: the poison of Aspes is under their lips;
14. whose mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.
15. Their feet are swift to shed blood.
16. Destruction and wretchedness are in their ways:
17. And the way of peace have they not known.
18. There is no fear of God before their eyes.
19. Yea and we know that whatsoever the law saith, he saith it to them which are under the law: That all mouths may be stopped, and all the world be subdued(may be debter unto) to God,
20. because that by the deeds of the law, shall no flesh be justified in the sight of God. For by the law cometh the knowledge of sin.
21. Now verily is the righteousness that cometh of God declared with out the fulfilling of(without adding to) the law having witness yet of the law, and of the prophets.
22. The righteousness no doubt which is good before God cometh by the faith of Jesus Christ unto all, and upon all them that believe. (of him)
23. For there is no difference, (for) all have sinned, and lack(wait) the praise that is of valour before God:
24. but are justified freely(without deserving) by his grace, through the redemption that is in(is done by) Christ Jesu,
25. whom God hath made a seat of mercy thorow faith in his blood, to shew the righteousness which before him is of valour,(availeth before him) in that he forgiveth the sins that are passed,
26. which God did suffer to shew at this time: the righteousness that is allowed of him,(availeth before him) that he might be counted just, and a justifier of him which believeth on Jesus.(that he onely might be righteous, and the righteous maker of him which is of the faith on Iesus)
27. Where is then thy rejoicing? It is excluded. By what law? by the law of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
28. We suppose therefore (we hold) that a man is justified by faith without the deeds(works) of the law.
29. Is he the God of the jews only? Is he not also the God of the gentiles? He is no doubt, God also of the gentiles.(Yes, even of the Gentiles also.)
30. For it is God only which justifieth circumcision, which is of faith: and uncircumcision thorow faith.
31. Do we then destroy the law thorow faith? God forbid. (But) We rather maintain the law.
