Chapter 16 15 But we find that the Jews, whom this wicked wretch hath delivered to utter destruction, are no evildoers, but live by most just laws:16 And that they be children of the most high and most mighty, living God, who hath ordered the kingdom both unto us and to our progenitors in the most excellent manner.17 Wherefore ye shall do well not to put in execution the letters sent unto you by Aman the son of Amadatha.18 For he that was the worker of these things, is hanged at the gates of Susa with all his family: God, who ruleth all things, speedily rendering vengeance to him according to his deserts.19 Therefore ye shall publish the copy of this letter in all places, that the Jews may freely live after their own laws.20 And ye shall aid them, that even the same day, being the thirteenth day of the twelfth month Adar, they may be avenged on them, who in the time of their affliction shall set upon them.21 For Almighty God hath turned to joy unto them the day, wherein the chosen people should have perished.22 Ye shall therefore among your solemn feasts keep it an high day with all feasting:23 That both now and hereafter there may be safety to us and the well affected Persians; but to those which do conspire against us a memorial of destruction.24 Therefore every city and country whatsoever, which shall not do according to these things, shall be destroyed without mercy with fire and sword, and shall be made not only unpassable for men, but also most hateful to wild beasts and fowls for ever.
