Esther 8:15-17 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 And Mordecai went out of the king’s palace and of the king’s sight, and he shined in the king’s clothes, that is, (clothes the colour) of jacinth, and (the) colour of the air, and he bare a golden crown on his head, and was clothed with a mantle of silk and of purple; and all the city fully joyed, and was glad. (And Mordecai went out from the king’s palace, and from before the king, and he shone in the king’s robes, that is, in his robes of blue and white, and he wore a gold crown on his head, and he also wore a cloak of silk and purple; and all the city rejoiced, and was glad.)

16 Certainly then a new light seemed to rise up to the Jews, and joy, and honour, and dancing (And so a new light seemed to rise up for the Jews, and joy, and honour, and dancing)

17 was at all peoples, and cities, and at all provinces, whither ever the commandments of the king came, (and) among them was a wonderful joy, and meats, and feasts, and an holy day, in so much, that many of another folk and sect were joined to the religion and ceremonies of them; for the great dread of the name of Jews had assailed all them. (were with all the people in all the cities, and provinces, wherever the king’s orders came; yea, among them there was such a wonderful joy, and food, and feasts, and holiday, that many people of other nations and sects, were joined to the religion and ceremonies of the Jews; for a great fear of the Jews had assailed all of them.)

Esther 8:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

The Triumph of the Jews

15 When Mordecai left the king’s presence, he was wearing royal garments of blue and white, a large crown of gold and a purple robe of fine linen. And the city of Susa held a joyous celebration. 16 For the Jews it was a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honor. 17 In every province and in every city to which the edict of the king came, there was joy and gladness among the Jews, with feasting and celebrating. And many people of other nationalities became Jews because fear of the Jews had seized them.
