Haman built a 50-cubit high gallows to hang Mordecai on.
10 The king said, "Hang Haman on the gallows instead."
So they did that. And the king was satisfied.
The king permits the Jews to kill those who might kill them
81-2 After hanging Haman, the king gave Haman's house to Esther and Haman's ring to Mordecai. 3 Esther fell down at the king's feet and begged him not to kill all the Jews (as Haman had convinced him to do). 4 The king gave her the golden scepter, so she stood up and said,
Do the opposite of what Haman convinced you to do.
I've given Haman's house to Esther and hanged him on the gallows, because he mistreated the Jews.
9 Do whatever you like and seal it with my ring and name.
11 So king gave the Jews in all the empire's provinces, from India to Ethiopia, permission to:
Kill everyone who planned to kill the Jews, along with their wives and children. (And take all their stuff.)
12 Kill them all on one day: the day the first decree ordered all Jews to be killed -- the 13th day of the 12th month.
15 Mordecai left the king in royal apparel with a gold crown on his head.
16-17 All the Jews were happy, and many people became Jews (because they were afraid of them).
The Jews slaughter more than 75,000 people
91 On the 13th day of the 12th month, the month of Adar, (the day that was supposed to be Kill-the-Jews Day, but turned out to be opposite), the Jews ruled over those who hated them. 2 The Jews gathered throughout the provinces to kill whoever wanted to hurt them. Everyone was afraid of the Jews. 3 All the rulers helped the Jews, because they were afraid of Mordecai. 5 And the Jews slaughtered their enemies with the sword, doing to them as they would have done to the Jews. 6 In the Shushan palace, they killed 500 men. 10 And they killed Haman's ten sons.
