Text Commentary side-by-side

1.1–9 :

Artaxerxes' banquet. The finery of the court is expanded beyond its Hebrew version.

8 :

Not according to a fixed rule: The banquet is not normal custom but the initiative of the king.

1.10–22 :

Vashti's dismissal. Here, Haman is identified as one of the eunuchs.

11 :

While in the Hebrew the king wishes to display Vashti's beauty, here he seeks to proclaim her queen; the change makes his request less objectionable.

22 :

Respect … shown to every husband is softer than the Hebrew: “Every man should be master in his own house.”
