Esther 1:16 CPDV

14  (but first and foremost were Carshena, and Shethar, and Admatha, and Tarshish, and Meres, and Marsena, and Memucan, seven rulers of the Persians as well as the Medes, who saw the face of the king and who were accustomed to sitting down first after him,)

15  as to what sentence should fall upon Vashti the queen, who had refused to do the commandment of king Artaxerxes, which he had delivered to her by the eunuchs.

16  And Memucan answered, in the hearing of the king as well as the rulers, 'Queen Vashti has wounded not only the king, but also all the people and the leaders, who are in all the provinces of king Artaxerxes.

17  For word about the queen will go out to all the women, so that they will show contempt for their husbands, and they will say, 'King Artaxerxes ordered that queen Vashti should enter before him, and she would not.'

18  And so, by this example all the wives of the leaders of the Persians and the Medes will belittle the authority of their husbands; therefore, the indignation of the king is just.
