Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews...
and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me...
I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king...
and if I perish, I perish...

and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre...
then said the king unto her, What wilt thou queen Esther?...
it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom...
