Additions to Esther

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Additions to Esther refer to several additional chapters to the Book of Esther found in the Septuagint. They are distributed among the conventional Book of Esther and are found in Catholic and Orthodox Bibles but generally not in ones used by Protestants. Some of the additions are: Mordechai's dream, his later interpretation of the dream in light of what happened to him in real life and details of the decree against the Jews.
