Esther 8:16 CPDV

14  And so the swift couriers departed in haste, carrying through the announcement, and the king's edict was hung up in Susa.

15  But Mordecai, going forth from the palace and from the king's presence, shone in royal apparel the color of hyacinth and of the sky, wearing a golden crown on his head, and clothed with a cloak of silk and purple. And all the city rejoiced and was joyful.

16  But for the Jews, a new light seemed to rise; there was joy, honor, and dancing.

17  With all the peoples, cities, and provinces, wherever the king's orders arrived, there was wonderful rejoicing, banquets and feasts, and a solemn holy day, so much so that many of the other nations joined themselves to their religious practices and ceremonies. For a great fear of the name of the Jews had overcome them all.
