and six months with sweet odours,

to go with her out of the house of the women
unto the king’s house.

and on the morrow she returned
into the second house of the women,
to the custody of Shaashgaz, the king’s chamberlain,

except the king delighted in her,
and that she were called by name.

the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai,
who had taken her for his daughter,
