141Queen Esther also, fearing the danger that was at hand, had recourse to the Lord.
142And when she had laid away her royal apparel, she put on garments suitable for weeping and mourning: instead of divers precious ointments, she covered her head with ashes and dung, and she humbled her body with fasts: and all the places in which before she was accustomed to rejoice, she filled with her torn hair.
143And she prayed to the Lord the God of Israel, saying: O my Lord, who alone art our king, help me a desolate woman, and who have no other helper but thee.
144My danger is in my hands.
145I have heard of my father that thou, O Lord, didst take Israel from among all nations, and our fathers from all their predecessors, to possess them as an everlasting inheritance, and thou hast done to them as thou hast promised.
146We have sinned in thy sight, and therefore thou hast delivered us into the hands of our enemies:
147For we have worshipped their gods. Thou art just, O Lord.
148And now they are not content to oppress us with most hard bondage, but attributing the strength of their hands to the power of their idols.
149They design to change thy promises, and destroy thy inheritance, and shut the mouths of them that praise thee, and extinguish the glory of thy temple and altar,
1410That they may open the mouths of Gentiles, and praise the strength of idols, and magnify for ever a carnal king.
1411Give not, O Lord, thy sceptre to them that are not, lest they laugh at our ruin: but turn their counsel upon themselves, and destroy him that hath begun to rage against us.
1412Remember, O Lord, and shew thyself to us in the time of our tribulation, and give me boldness, O Lord, king of gods, and of all power:
1413Give me a well ordered speech in my mouth in the presence of the lion, and turn his heart to the hatred of our enemy, that both he himself may perish, and the rest that consent to him.
1414But deliver us by thy hand, and help me, who have no other helper, but thee, O Lord, who hast the knowledge of all things.
1415And thou knowest that I hate the glory of the wicked, and abhor the bed of the uncircumcised, and of every stranger.
1416Thou knowest my necessity, that I abominate the sign of my pride and glory, which is upon my head in the days of my public appearance, and detest it as a menstruous rag, and wear it not in the days of my silence,
1417And that I have not eaten at Aman's table, nor hath the king's banquet pleased me, and that I have not drunk the wine of the drink offerings:
1418And that thy handmaid hath never rejoiced, since I was brought hither unto this day but in thee, O Lord, the God of Abraham.
1419O God, who art mighty above all, hear the voice of them, that have no other hope, and deliver us from the hand of the wicked, and deliver me from my fear.
