Restored English Translation of Esther: Chapter 2

Today I present my Restored English Translation (RET) of Ester (commonly known as Esther) chapter 2.  As usual, it contains the Hebrew names, with a glossary of them at the end.  You will NOT find this Chapter 2 in most Bibles (nor my Chapter 1).  Despite being part of the original text, they are excluded from most Jewish, Protestant and Messianic translations of Esther.  See The Canon of Scripture, Part 1: The Apocrypha.

CHAPTER 2

1 And Mordekai took his rest in the courtyard with Bigtan and Teresh, the two eunuchs of the King, and keepers of the courtyard. 2 And he heard their deliberations, and searched out their purposes, and learned that they were about to lay hands on Achashverosh the King. And so he told the King about them. 3 Then the king examined the two eunuchs, and after that they had confessed it, they were led away. 4 And the king made a record of these things, and Mordekai also wrote of it. 5 So the king commanded Mordekai to serve in the court, and for this he rewarded him. 6 However, Haman the son of Hamedata the Agagi was in great honour with the king, and sought to harm Mordekai and his people because of the two eunuchs of the king.
