English Standard Version
Chapter 4 10
Then Esther spoke to Hathach and commanded him to go to Mordecai and say, 11
“All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces know that if any man or woman goes to the king inside the inner court without being called, there is but one law—to be put to death, except the one to whom the king holds out the golden scepter so that he may live. But as for me, I have not been called to come in to the king these thirty days.” 12
And they told Mordecai what Esther had said. 13
Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews.
