The Greatness of Mordecai...
And Sovereign Ahashwerosh laid compulsory labour on the land and the islands of the sea.
And all the acts of his power and his might, and the exact account of the greatness of Mordekai, with which the sovereign made him great, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Media and Persia?
For Mordekai the Yehudite was second to Sovereign Ahashwerosh, and great among the Yehudim and pleasing to his many brothers, seeking the good of his people and speaking peace to all his seed.
