7In the first month, that is, the month of Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, Adar.
8 An Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither keep they the king´s laws: therefore it is not for the king´s profit to suffer them.
9 If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have charge of the business, to bring it into the king´s treasuries.
10 And the king took his ring from his hand and gave it unto Haman the son of Hammadetha the Agagite, the Jew´s enemy.
11 And the kng said unto Haman, The silver is given to thee, the people also, to do with them as it seemeth good to thee.
