1:10 On the seventh day, as King Ahasuerus was feeling the effects of the wine, 1  he ordered Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven eunuchs who attended him, 2  1:11 to bring Queen Vashti into the king’s presence wearing her royal high turban. He wanted to show the people and the officials her beauty, for she was very attractive. 3  1:12 But Queen Vashti refused 4  to come at the king’s bidding 5  conveyed through the eunuchs. Then the king became extremely angry, and his rage consumed 6  him.
