The Access Bible New Revised Standard Bible, written and edited with first-time Bible readers in mind.

Reading Guide

Readers are well served by first reading Hebrew Esther and then considering the differing details and flavor of the Greek. In this way, the effect of the additions becomes evident: The prophecy and fulfillment scheme that frames the book (Additions A and F) shows God as directing events; the texts of the king's edicts (Additions B and E) portray him as religious and powerful; the prayers of Mordecai and Esther (Addition C) establish their motives as religious; and the expanded drama in Esther's encounter with the king (Addition D) underscores her bravery and cunning.
