Boqorad Washtii Oo Laga Qaaday Darajadeeda

Wakhtigii Ahashwerus (Ahashweruskaasu wuxuu ahaa kii xukumi jiray Hindiya iyo Itoobiya inta ka dhex leh, oo u talin jiray boqol iyo toddoba iyo labaatan gobol) markii Boqor Ahashwerus uu ku fadhiistay carshigii boqortooyadiisa oo ku yiil Shuushan oo ahayd hoygii boqorka, sannaddii saddexaad oo boqornimadiisa ayuu martiqaad u sameeyey amiirradiisii iyo addoommadiisii oo dhan, taas oo ay hortiisa joogeen xooggii Faaris iyo Maaday, iyo dadkii gobta ahaa iyo amiirradii gobollada. Oo wuxuu soo bannaan dhigay maalkii boqortooyadiisa ammaanta badnayd, iyo sharaftii haybaddiisa sarraysa, intii maalmo badan ah oo gaadha boqol iyo siddeetan maalmood. Oo markii maalmahaasu dhammaadeen ayuu boqorku diyaafad u sameeyey dadkii Shuushan oo hoygii boqorka ahayd joogay oo dhan, yar iyo weynba, intii toddoba maalmood ah, oo diyaafaddiina waxaa lagu dhigay barxaddii beerta ku dhex tiil hoygii boqorka. Oo waxaa meeshaas ka laalaaday daahyo ah caddaan iyo cagaar iyo buluug, oo waxaa ku xidhnaa xadhko laga sameeyey maro wanaagsan iyo dhar guduudan oo sudhan siddooyin lacag ah iyo tiirar marmar ah. Sariiruhuna waxay ahaayeen dahab iyo lacag, oo waxaa la dhigay meel siman oo laga sameeyey marmar ah casaan iyo caddaan iyo huruud iyo madow. Oo waxaa dadka cabniin lagu siiyey weelal dahab ah (oo weelashana midba midka kale wuu ka duwanaa), oo khamrigii boqorkuna wuu badnaa sidii ay ahayd deeqsinimadii boqorku. Oo cabniinkuna wuxuu waafaqsanaa qaynuunka, dirqina ma jirin, waayo, boqorku wuxuu madaxdii gurigiisa oo dhan ku amray inay nin kasta u yeelaan siduu doonayo. Oo weliba Boqorad Washtiina waxay dumarkii diyaafad ugu samaysay hoygii reer boqor oo uu Boqor Ahashwerus lahaa.

10 Oo maalintii toddobaad boqorkii, isagoo qalbigiisu khamri ku faraxsan yahay, wuxuu amray toddobadii midiidin oo Boqor Ahashwerus ka adeegi jiray oo ahaa Mehuumaan, Bista, Xarboona, Bigtaa, Abagta, Seetar, iyo Karkas, 11 oo wuxuu iyagii ku amray inay Boqorad Washtii hortiisa keenaan, iyadoo qabta taajkii boqornimada, si quruxdeeda loo tuso dadka iyo amiirrada, waayo, iyadu waxay lahayd suurad wanaagsan oo in la fiirsado ku fiican. 12 Laakiinse boqoraddii Washtii ahayd way diidday inay ku timaado amarkii boqorku ugu soo dhiibay midiidinnada. Sidaas daraaddeed boqorkii aad buu u xanaaqay, oo cadhadiisiina wuu la gubtay.

13 Markaasaa boqorkii wuxuu la hadlay nimankii xigmadda lahaa oo xilliyada yiqiin, (waayo, boqorka caadadiisu saasay ahayd xagga kulli kuwii sharcigii yiqiin iyo xukunkaba, 14 oo waxaa isaga ku xigay Karshena, Shetaar, Admata, Tarshiish, Meres, Marsena, iyo Memuukaan oo ahaa toddobadii amiir oo Faaris iyo Maaday, oo arkay boqorka wejigiisa, oo fadhiyey boqortooyada derejadeeda kowaad), 15 oo wuxuu ku yidhi, War maxaan ku samaynaa Boqorad Washtii sida sharciga waafaqsan? Maxaa yeelay, iyadu ma ay yeelin yeedhiddii Boqor Ahashwerus iyada midiidinnada ugu sii dhiibay. 16 Markaasaa Memuukaan jawaabay, oo wuxuu boqorkii iyo amiirradii hortooda ka yidhi, Boqorad Washtii boqorka oo keliya ma ay xumayn, laakiinse waxay xumaysay amiirrada oo dhan, iyo dadka deggan Boqor Ahashwerus gobolladiisa oo dhan. 17 Haddaba wixii ay boqoraddu samaysay wuu wada gaadhi doonaa dumarka oo dhan, kolkaasay nimankooda quudhsan doonaan markii warkan loo sheego, oo lagu yidhaahdo, Boqorkii Ahashwerus wuxuu amray in Boqorad Washtii hortiisa la keeno, laakiinse ma ay iman. 18 Haddaba isla maantadan amiiradaha Faaris iyo Maaday oo maqlay wixii ay boqoraddu samaysay, sidaasoo kalay ku odhan doonaan boqorka amiirradiisa oo dhan. Oo saas aawadeed waxaa kici doona quudhsasho iyo xanaaq badan. 19 Haddaba haddii boqorku raalli ka yahay, amar boqornimo ha bixiyo, oo amarkaasna si aan loo beddelin ha lagu dhex qoro qaynuunnada reer Faaris iyo reer Maaday, inaanay boqoradda Washtii mar dambe iman Boqor Ahashwerus hortiisa. Boqorkuna boqoradnimadeedii ha siiyo mid kale oo iyada ka wanaagsan. 20 Oo marka boqorka amarkiisa uu bixin doono lagu faafiyo boqortooyadiisa oo dhan (waayo, way weyn tahay) ayaa dumarka oo dhammu nimankooda maamuusi doonaan, yar iyo weynba.

21 Oo odhaahdaasu waxay ka farxisay boqorkii iyo amiirradii oo dhanba, kolkaasuu boqorkii yeelay sidii uu Memuukaan yidhi. 22 Oo wuxuu warqado u diray boqorka gobolladiisii oo dhan, oo gobol walba wuxuu ugu qoray fartiisii, oo dad kastana wuxuu ugu qoray afkoodii, si nin kastaa ugu taliyo reerkiisa oo uu ku sheego afka dadkiisu ku hadlo.

Esther 1 New International Version (NIV)

Queen Vashti Deposed

This is what happened during the time of Xerxes,[a] the Xerxes who ruled over 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush[b]: At that time King Xerxes reigned from his royal throne in the citadel of Susa, and in the third year of his reign he gave a banquet for all his nobles and officials. The military leaders of Persia and Media, the princes, and the nobles of the provinces were present.

For a full 180 days he displayed the vast wealth of his kingdom and the splendor and glory of his majesty. When these days were over, the king gave a banquet, lasting seven days, in the enclosed garden of the king’s palace, for all the people from the least to the greatest who were in the citadel of Susa. The garden had hangings of white and blue linen, fastened with cords of white linen and purple material to silver rings on marble pillars. There were couches of gold and silver on a mosaic pavement of porphyry, marble, mother-of-pearl and other costly stones. Wine was served in goblets of gold, each one different from the other, and the royal wine was abundant, in keeping with the king’s liberality. By the king’s command each guest was allowed to drink with no restrictions, for the king instructed all the wine stewards to serve each man what he wished.

Queen Vashti also gave a banquet for the women in the royal palace of King Xerxes.

10 On the seventh day, when King Xerxes was in high spirits from wine, he commanded the seven eunuchs who served him—Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar and Karkas— 11 to bring before him Queen Vashti, wearing her royal crown, in order to display her beauty to the people and nobles, for she was lovely to look at. 12 But when the attendants delivered the king’s command, Queen Vashti refused to come. Then the king became furious and burned with anger.

13 Since it was customary for the king to consult experts in matters of law and justice, he spoke with the wise men who understood the times 14 and were closest to the king—Karshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena and Memukan, the seven nobles of Persia and Media who had special access to the king and were highest in the kingdom.

15 “According to law, what must be done to Queen Vashti?” he asked. “She has not obeyed the command of King Xerxes that the eunuchs have taken to her.”

16 Then Memukan replied in the presence of the king and the nobles, “Queen Vashti has done wrong, not only against the king but also against all the nobles and the peoples of all the provinces of King Xerxes. 17 For the queen’s conduct will become known to all the women, and so they will despise their husbands and say, ‘King Xerxes commanded Queen Vashti to be brought before him, but she would not come.’ 18 This very day the Persian and Median women of the nobility who have heard about the queen’s conduct will respond to all the king’s nobles in the same way. There will be no end of disrespect and discord.

19 “Therefore, if it pleases the king, let him issue a royal decree and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media, which cannot be repealed, that Vashti is never again to enter the presence of King Xerxes. Also let the king give her royal position to someone else who is better than she. 20 Then when the king’s edict is proclaimed throughout all his vast realm, all the women will respect their husbands, from the least to the greatest.”

21 The king and his nobles were pleased with this advice, so the king did as Memukan proposed. 22 He sent dispatches to all parts of the kingdom, to each province in its own script and to each people in their own language, proclaiming that every man should be ruler over his own household, using his native tongue.
