1
亞哈隨魯作王、從印度直到古實統管一百二十七省.

This is what happened during the time of Xerxes, the Xerxes who ruled over 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush:

2
亞哈隨魯王在書珊城的宮登基、

At that time King Xerxes reigned from his royal throne in the citadel of Susa,

3
在位第三年、為他一切首領臣僕設擺筵席.有波斯和瑪代的權貴、就是各省的貴冑與首領、在他面前.

and in the third year of his reign he gave a banquet for all his nobles and officials. The military leaders of Persia and Media, the princes, and the nobles of the provinces were present.

4
他把他榮耀之國的豐富、和他美好威嚴的尊貴、給他們看了許多日、就是一百八十日。

For a full 180 days he displayed the vast wealth of his kingdom and the splendor and glory of his majesty.

5
這日子滿了、又為所有住書珊城的大小人民、在御園的院子裡設擺筵席七日.

When these days were over, the king gave a banquet, lasting seven days, in the enclosed garden of the king's palace, for all the people from the least to the greatest, who were in the citadel of Susa.

6
有白色、綠色、藍色的帳子、用細麻繩紫色繩從銀環內繫在白玉石柱上、有金銀的床榻、擺在紅白黃黑玉石鋪的石地上.

The garden had hangings of white and blue linen, fastened with cords of white linen and purple material to silver rings on marble pillars. There were couches of gold and silver on a mosaic pavement of porphyry, marble, mother-of-pearl and other costly stones.

7
用金器皿賜酒、器皿各有不同、御酒甚多、足顯王的厚意.

Wine was served in goblets of gold, each one different from the other, and the royal wine was abundant, in keeping with the king's liberality.

8
喝酒有例、不准勉強人、因王吩咐宮裡的一切臣宰、讓人各隨己意。

By the king's command each guest was allowed to drink in his own way, for the king instructed all the wine stewards to serve each man what he wished.

9
王后瓦實提在亞哈隨魯王的宮內、也為婦女設擺筵席。

Queen Vashti also gave a banquet for the women in the royal palace of King Xerxes.

10
第七日、亞哈隨魯王飲酒心中快樂、就吩咐在他面前侍立的七個太監米戶幔、比斯他、哈波拿、比革他、亞拔他、西達、甲迦、

On the seventh day, when King Xerxes was in high spirits from wine, he commanded the seven eunuchs who served him--Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar and Carcas--

11
請王后瓦實提頭戴王后的冠冕到王面前、使各等臣民看他的美貌、因為他容貌甚美.

to bring before him Queen Vashti, wearing her royal crown, in order to display her beauty to the people and nobles, for she was lovely to look at.

12
王后瓦實提卻不肯遵太監所傳的王命而來、所以王甚發怒、心如火燒。

But when the attendants delivered the king's command, Queen Vashti refused to come. Then the king became furious and burned with anger.

13
那時、在王左右常見王面、國中坐高位的、有波斯和瑪代的七個大臣、就是甲示拿、示達、押瑪他、他施斯、米力、瑪西拿、米母干、都是達時務的明哲人.按王的常規、辦事必先詢問知例明法的人.王問他們說、

Since it was customary for the king to consult experts in matters of law and justice, he spoke with the wise men who understood the times

14
見上節

and were closest to the king--Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena and Memucan, the seven nobles of Persia and Media who had special access to the king and were highest in the kingdom.

15
王后瓦實提不遵太監所傳的王命、照例應當怎樣辦理呢.

"According to law, what must be done to Queen Vashti?" he asked. "She has not obeyed the command of King Xerxes that the eunuchs have taken to her."

16
米母干在王和眾首領面前回答說、王后瓦實提、這事不但得罪王、並且有害於王各省的臣民.

Then Memucan replied in the presence of the king and the nobles, "Queen Vashti has done wrong, not only against the king but also against all the nobles and the peoples of all the provinces of King Xerxes.

17
因為王后這事必傳到眾婦人的耳中、說、亞哈隨魯王吩咐王后瓦實提到王面前、他卻不來、他們就藐視自己的丈夫.

For the queen's conduct will become known to all the women, and so they will despise their husbands and say, 'King Xerxes commanded Queen Vashti to be brought before him, but she would not come.'

18
今日波斯和瑪代的眾夫人聽見王后這事、必向王的大臣照樣行.從此必大開藐視和忿怒之端。

This very day the Persian and Median women of the nobility who have heard about the queen's conduct will respond to all the king's nobles in the same way. There will be no end of disrespect and discord.

19
王若以為美、就降旨寫在波斯和瑪代人的例中、永不更改、不准瓦實提再到王面前、將他王后的位分賜給比他還好的人.

"Therefore, if it pleases the king, let him issue a royal decree and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media, which cannot be repealed, that Vashti is never again to enter the presence of King Xerxes. Also let the king give her royal position to someone else who is better than she.

20
所降的旨意傳遍通國、(國度本來廣大)所有的婦人、無論丈夫貴賤都必尊敬他。

Then when the king's edict is proclaimed throughout all his vast realm, all the women will respect their husbands, from the least to the greatest."

21
王和眾首領都以米母干的話為美、王就照這話去行、

The king and his nobles were pleased with this advice, so the king did as Memucan proposed.

22
發詔書、用各省的文字、各族的方言、通知各省、使為丈夫的在家中作主、各說本地的方言。

He sent dispatches to all parts of the kingdom, to each province in its own script and to each people in its own language, proclaiming in each people's tongue that every man should be ruler over his own household.
