Esther 8:9 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

On the twenty-third day of the third month (that is, the month Sivan),[a] the royal scribes were summoned. Everything was written exactly as Mordecai ordered for the Jews, to the satraps, the governors, and the officials of the 127 provinces from India[b] to Cush. The edict was written for each province in its own script, for each ethnic group in its own language, and to the Jews in their own script and language.
