Esther 10 New Life Version (NLV)
Mordecai Is Honored by the King
10 King Ahasuerus put a tax on the people of the nation and the parts beside the sea. 2 All the acts of his power and strength, and the whole story of the high honor given to Mordecai by the king, are written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia. 3 For Mordecai the Jew was second in power only to King Ahasuerus and great among the Jews. He found favor in the eyes of his people. He worked for the good of his people and spoke for the well-being of all the Jews.
