Esther 10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

10 1 The estimation and authority of Mordecai.

And the King Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and upon the isles of the sea.

And all the acts of his power, and of his might, and the declaration of the dignity of Mordecai, wherewith the King magnified him, are they not written in the book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Media and Persia?

For Mordecai the Jew was the second unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and [a]accepted among the multitude of his brethren, who procured the wealth of his people, and spake peaceably to all his seed.


  1. Esther 10:3 These three points are here set forth as commendable and necessary for him that is in authority, to have the favor of the people, to procure their wealth, and to be gentle and loving toward them.

Esther 10 New International Version (NIV)

The Greatness of Mordecai

10 King Xerxes imposed tribute throughout the empire, to its distant shores. And all his acts of power and might, together with a full account of the greatness of Mordecai, whom the king had promoted, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Media and Persia? Mordecai the Jew was second in rank to King Xerxes, preeminent among the Jews, and held in high esteem by his many fellow Jews, because he worked for the good of his people and spoke up for the welfare of all the Jews.
