Esther 10


וַיָּשֶׂם הַמֶּלֶךְ (אֲחַשֵׁרֹשׁ) [אֲחַשְׁוֵרֹושׁ] מַס עַל־הָאָרֶץ וְאִיֵּי הַיָּם׃   10:1

Esth. 10:1   And the king, Achasuerus, laid a levy upon the land and the islands of the sea.

The king’s name is misspelled in the parentheses.  The correction is in the brackets.

וְכָל־מַעֲשֵׂה תָקְפֹּו וּגְבוּרָתֹו וּפָרָשַׁת גְּדֻלַּת מָרְדֳּכַי אֲשֶׁר גִּדְּלֹו הַמֶּלֶךְ הֲלֹוא־הֵם כְּתוּבִים עַל־סֵפֶר   10:2

דִּבְרֵי הַיָּמִים לְמַלְכֵי מָדַי וּפָרָס׃

Esth. 10:2   And every act of his authority and his might, and declaration of the greatness of Mordecai, whom the king had made powerful, are they not written on the book of the chronicles for the kings of Media and Persia?

כִּי מָרְדֳּכַי הַיְּהוּדִי מִשְׁנֶה לַמֶּלֶךְ אֲחַשְׁוֵרֹושׁ וְגָדֹול לַיְּהוּדִים וְרָצוּי לְרֹב אֶחָיו דֹּרֵשׁ טֹוב לְעַמֹּו וְדֹבֵר   10:3

שָׁלֹום לְכָל־זַרְעֹו׃

Esth. 10:3   For Mordecai, the Jew, was second to king Ahasuerus and the Jews' greatest one and most acceptable to the multitude of his brethren, seeking good to his people and promising peace for all his seed.
