Esther 9:1-32
1. In the twelfth month, that is the month Adar, upon the thirteenth day, which the king's word and commandment had appointed, that it should be done, even upon the same day that the enemies should have destroyed the Jews to have oppressed them, it turned contrary wise, even that the Jews should subdue their enemies.
2. Then gathered the Jews together in their cities within all the lands of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as would do them evil, and no man could withstand them: for the fear of them was come over all people.
3. And all the rulers in the lands, and princes and Deputies, and officers of the king promoted the Jews: for the fear of Mardocheus came upon them.
4. For Mardocheus was great in the king's house, and the report of him was noised in all lands, how he increased and grew.
5. Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with a sore slaughter, and slew and destroyed, and did after their will unto such as were their adversaries.
6. And at the castle of Susan slew the Jews and destroyed five hundredth men:
7. and slew Pharsandatha, Delphon, Aspatha,
8. Phoratha, Adalia, Aridatha,
9. Pharmastha, Arisai, Aridai, Vaizatha,
10. the ten sons of Haman the son of Hammadatha the enemy of the Jews: but on his goods they laid no hands.
11. At the same time was the king certified of the number of those that were slain at the castle of Susan.
12. And the king said unto queen Esther: The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundredth men at the castle of Susan, and the ten sons of Haman: What shall they do in the other lands of the king? What is thy petition, that it may be given thee? and what requirest thou more to be done?
13. Esther said: If it please the king, let him suffer the Jews tomorrow also to do according unto this day's commandment, that they may hang Haman's ten sons upon the tree.
14. And the king charged to do so, and the commandment was devised at Susan, and Haman's ten sons were hanged.
15. And the Jews gathered themselves together at Susan, upon the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and slew three hundredth men at Susan, but on their goods they laid no hands.
16. As for the other Jews in the king's lands, they came together, and stood for their lives, and gat rest from their enemies: and slew of their enemies five and seventy thousand, how be it they laid no hands on their goods.
17. This was done on the thirteenth day of the month Adar, and on the fourteenth day of the same month rested they, which day they ordained to be a day of feasting and gladness.
18. But the Jews at Susan were come together both on the thirteenth day and on the fourteenth, and on the fifteenth day they rested, and the same day ordained they to be a day of feasting and gladness.
19. Therefore the Jews that dwelt in the villages and unwalled towns, ordained the fourteenth day of the month Adar, to be a day of feasting and gladness, and one sent gifts to another.
20. And Mardocheus wrote these acts, and sent the writings unto all the Jews that were in all the lands of the king Ahasuerus, both nigh and far,
21. that they should yearly receive and hold the fourteenth and fifteenth day of the month Adar,
22. as the days wherein the Jews came to rest from their enemies, and as a month wherein their pain was turned to joy, and their sorrow to prosperity: that they should observe the same days of wealth and gladness, and one to send gifts to another, and to distribute unto the poor.
23. And the Jews received it that they had begun to do, and that Mardocheus wrote unto them:
24. how that Haman the son of Hamadatha, all the Jews enemy, had devised to destroy all the Jews, and caused to cast Phur, (that is Lot) for to put them in fear, and to bring them to naught:
25. and how Hester went and spake to the king, that thorow letters his wicked device (which he imagined against the Jews) might be turned upon his own head, and how he and his sons were hanged on the tree.
26. For the which cause they called this day Phurim after the name of Phur,(the lot) according to all the words of this writing: and what they themselves had seen, and what had happened unto them.
27. And the Jews set it up, and took it upon them and their seed, and upon all such as joined themselves unto them, that they would not miss to observe these two days yearly, according as they were written and appointed,
28. how that these days are not to be forgotten, but to be kept of the children's children among all kindreds in all lands and cities. They are the days of Phurim, which are not to be overslipped(overslipt) among the Jews, and the memorial of them ought not to perish from their seed.
29. And queen Hester the daughter of Abihail and Mardocheus the Jew wrote with all authority, to confirm this second writing of Phurim,
30. and sent the letters unto all the Jews, in the hundredth and seven and twenty lands of the empire of Ahasuerus, with friendly and faithful words,
31. to confirm these days of Phurim, in their time appointed, according as Mardocheus the Jew and Hester the queen had ordained concerning them: like as they upon their soul and upon their seed had confirmed the acts of the fasting and of her complaint.
32. And Hester commanded to establish these acts of this Phurim, and to write them in a book.

Esther 10:1-3
1. And the king Ahasuerus laid tribute upon the land, and upon the Isles of the sea.(See)
2. As for all the work of his power and authority, and the great worship of Mardocheus, which the king gave him, behold, it is written in the Chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia.
3. For Mardocheus the Jew was the second next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted among the multitude of his brethren, as one that seeketh the wealth of his people, and speaketh the best for all his seed. [The end of the book of Esther.]

Psalms 91:1-6
1. Who so dwelleth under the defense of the most highest, and abideth under the shadow of the Almighty.
2. He shall say unto the LORD: O my hope, and my stronghold, my God, in whom I will trust.
3. For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence.
4. He shall cover thee under his wings, that thou mayest be safe under his feathers: his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5. So that thou shalt not need to be afraid for any bugs by night, nor for arrow that flieth by day.
6. For the pestilence that creepeth in the darkness, nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noonday.

Proverbs 22:12-12
12. The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, but as for the words of the despiteful, he bringeth them to naught.

Romans 6:1-23
1. What shall we say then? shall we continue in sin, that there may be abundance of grace?
2. God forbid. How shall we that are dead as touching sin live any longer therein?
3. Remember ye not that all we which are baptised in the name of Christ Jesu, are baptised to die with him?
4. We are buried with him by baptism for to die: That (likewise) as Christ was raised up from death by the glory of the father: even so we also should walk in a new life.
5. For if we be graft in death like unto him: even so must we be in the resurrection.
6. This we must remember, that our old man is crucified with him also, that the body of sin might utterly be destroyed,(sinful body might cease) that henceforth we should not be servants of sin.(serve sin no more)
7. For he that is dead, is justified from sin.
8. Wherefore if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall live with him:
9. remembering that Christ once raised from death, dieth no more. Death hath no more power over him.
10. For as touching that he died, he died as concerning sin once. And as touching that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11. Likewise imagine ye also, that ye are dead concerning sin: but are alive unto God thorow Jesus Christ our Lord.
12. Let not sin reign therefore in your mortal bodies, that ye should thereunto obey in the lusts of it.
13. Neither give ye your members as instruments(weapons) of unrighteousness unto sin: But give yourselves unto God, as they that are alive from death. And give your members as instruments(weapons) of righteousness unto God.
14. Sin shall not have power over you.(Let not sin have power over you) For ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15. What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law: but under grace? God forbid.
16. Remember ye not how that to whomsoever ye commit yourselves as servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey: whether it be of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
17. God be thanked. (,that though) Ye were once the servants of sin: But now (ye) have (yet) obeyed with your hearts(heart) unto the form of doctrine where unto ye were delivered.
18. Ye are then made free from sin, and are become the servants of righteousness.
19. I will speak grossly because of the infirmity(weakness) of your flesh. As ye have given your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity, from iniquity unto iniquity: even so now give your members servants unto(to the service of) righteousness, that ye may be sanctified.(holy)
20. For when ye were servants of sin, ye were not under righteousness.
21. What fruit had ye then in those things, where of ye are now ashamed. For the end of those things is death.
22. But now are ye delivered(be free) from sin, and made(become) the servants of God, and have your fruit that ye should be sanctified,(holy) and the end everlasting life.
23. For the reward of sin is death: but eternal life is the gift of God, thorow Jesus Christ our Lord.
