以斯帖记 10:1-3

亚哈随鲁和末底改的功绩

1亚哈随鲁王使内陆和沿海的人民都进贡。 2他所有的丰功伟绩以及擢升末底改的事都记在玛代波斯的史书上。 3犹太末底改的地位仅次于亚哈随鲁王,他在犹太人中受尊崇,得到同胞的爱戴,因为他致力于本族人的益处,为他们谋求福祉。

Esther 10:1-3

The Greatness of Mordecai

1King Xerxes required people all through his kingdom to bring gifts. King Xerxes required gifts from its farthest shores. 2All the king’s powerful and mighty acts are written down. That includes the whole story of how important Mordecai was. The king had given him a position of great honor. All these things are written in the official records of the kings of Media and Persia. 3The position of Mordecai the Jew was second only to the position of King Xerxes. Mordecai was the most important Jew. All the other Jews had the highest respect for him. That’s because he worked for the good of his people. And he spoke up for the benefit of all the Jews.
