Esther 2:17-19 Common English Bible (CEB)

17 The king loved Esther more than all the other women; she had won his love and his favor more than all the others. He placed the royal crown on her head and made her ruler in place of Vashti. 18 The king held a magnificent, lavish feast, “the feast of Esther,” for all his officials and courtiers. He declared a public holiday[a] for the provinces and gave out gifts with royal generosity. 19 When they gathered the young women to the second women’s house,[b] Mordecai was working for the king at the King’s Gate.
