EST 9:14 And the king commanded it so to be done: and the decree was
given at Shushan; and they hanged Haman's ten sons.
EST 9:15 For the Jews that were in Shushan gathered themselves together
on the fourteenth day also of the month Adar, and slew three hundred men
at Shushan; but on the prey they laid not their hand.
EST 9:16 But the other Jews that were in the king's provinces gathered
themselves together, and stood for their lives, and had rest from their
enemies, and slew of their foes seventy and five thousand, but they laid
not their hands on the prey,
EST 9:17 On the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth
day of the same rested they, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.
