12 IN the second year of the reign of Artaxerxes the Great King, on the first day of the month of Nisan, Mardochaeus son of Jairus, son of Semeius, son of Kisaeus, of the tribe of Benjamin, had a dream. 3Mardochaeus, who was in the royal service at court, was a Jew living in the city of Susa and a man of high standing; 4he was one of the exiles, a descendant of those whom King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had carried away from Jerusalem with King Jechonias of Judah. This was his dream: 5first came din and tumult, peals of thunder and an earthquake, turmoil on the earth. 6Then two great dragons appeared, each poised to grapple with the other. They gave a mighty roar, 7and every nation was roused by it to prepare for war and fight against the righteous nation. 8It was a day of darkness and gloom, distress and anguish, oppression and great turmoil on the earth. 9The whole righteous nation, dreading the evils in store, was troubled and prepared for death. 10They cried aloud to God, and in answer there came as though from a little spring a great river brimming with water. 11As the sun rose it grew light; the humble were exalted and they devoured those of high degree. 12After this dream, in which he saw what God had resolved to do, Mardochaeus woke; he pondered over the dream until nightfall, trying in every way to understand it.
