Esther 10:1-3

10  And King A·has·u·e′rus proceeded to lay forced labor+ upon the land and the isles+ of the sea.  As for all his energetic work and his mightiness and the exact statement of Mor′de·cai’s+ greatness with which the king magnified+ him, are they not written in the Book of the affairs+ of the times of the kings of Me′di·a and Persia?+  For Mor′de·cai the Jew was second+ to King A·has·u·e′rus* and was great among the Jews and approved by the multitude of his brothers, working for the good of his people and speaking peace+ to all their offspring.
