13Esta waphendvula watsi: “Nakukuhle enkhosini yami, ngicela kutsi emaJuda lasenhlokodolobha iSusa aphindze nakusasa ente njengobe entile lamuhla, bese kutsi tidvumbu temadvodzana lalishumi aHamani, tiphanyekwe etigodvweni.” 14Ngako inkhosi yakhipha simemetelo sasebukhosini kutsi loko akwentiwe. Lesimemetelo sasebukhosini sacondziswa eSusa kutsi emadvodzana aHamani alengiswe ngentsambo etigodvweni. 15EmaJuda labeseSusa aphindza abutsana ndzawonye ngelilanga leli-14, enyangeni ya-Adari, abulala lamanye emadvodza langema-300. Noko akazange atiphange timphahla tawo.

16Ngaleso sikhatsi nalawa lamanye emaJuda labekuletinye tifundza tenkhosi abebutsene ndzawonye ngemave awo, nawo ativikela ngetikhali; wona abulala bantfu labati-75 000 lababetitsa tawo. Kodvwa noko nawo akazange asibeke sandla etimphahleni tabo, kutiphanga. 17Loko bakwenta ngelilanga leli-13, enyangeni ya-Adari; kwatsi ngelilanga leli-14 baphumula, batentela lilanga lelidzili lekujabula, nelekwephana tipho.

18EmaJuda labeseSusa wona lelidzili alenta ngelilanga leli-15 enyangeni ya-Adari, ngobe phela bona titsa tabo batibulala ngelilanga leli-13 nangelilanga leli-14, kwase kutsi ngelilanga leli-15 baphumula; nabo base batentela lilanga lelidzili nelekujabula bephane tipho. 19Ngiko-nje emaJuda lasahlala emakhaya emaphandleni lilanga leli-14 enyangeni ya-Adari alenta kube lilanga lelidzili lekujabula bephane tipho.

Leyo nyanga kwaba yinyanga leyajikiswa ekubeni yinyanga yelusizi neyengati kubo, yaba yinyanga yenjabulo neyekuphepha kwabo. Batjelwa kutsi bawahloniphe lawo malanga ngekwenta emadzili bephane tipho talokudliwako lomunye kulomunye, ngisho nakulabamphofu. 23Ngako emaJuda alandzela imiyalo yaModekhayi; lesibhimbi sasale saba ngumkhosi weminyaka yonkhe.
