it please the king:
Heb. it be good with the king, "And the sayingª pleasedªª° the kingª and the princes;ª and the kingª didª° according to the wordª of Memucan:ª" {Est 1:21} + "If¹ it pleaseª°¹ the king,ª let it be writtenª° that they may be destroyed:ª° and I will payª° tenª thousandª talentsª of silverª to¹ the handsª of those that have the chargeª° of the business,ª to bringª° [it] into¹ the king'sª treasuries.ª" {Est 3:9} + "And said,ª° If¹ it please²¹¹ the king,ª and if¹ I have foundª° favourª in his sight,ª and the thingª [seem] rightª° beforeª the king,ª and I¹ [be] pleasing²¹ in his eyes,ª let it be writtenª° to reverseª°¹ the lettersª devisedª by Hamanª the sonª of Hammedathaª the Agagite,ª which¹ he wroteª° to destroyª°¹ the Jewsª which¹ [are] in all¹ the king'sª provinces:ª" {Est 8:5}

it be not altered:
Heb. it pass not away, "Writeª° ye¹ also for¹ the Jews,ª as it likethª¹ you,² in the king'sª name,ª and sealª° [it] with the king'sª ring:ª for¹ the writingª which¹ is writtenª° in the king'sª name,ª and sealedª° with the king'sª ring,ª may no¹ man reverse.ª°" {Est 8:8} + "Now,ª O king,ª establishª° the decree,ª and signª° the writing,ª that¹ it be notª changed,ª° according to the lawª of the Medesª and Persians,ª which¹ alterethª° not.ª ... Thenª theseª menª assembledª° untoª the king,ª and saidª° unto the king,ª Know,ª° O king,ª that¹ the lawª of the Medesª and Persiansª [is], That¹ noª¹ decreeª nor statuteª which¹ the kingª establishethª° may be changed.ª°" {Dan 6:8-15} + "And aª stoneª was brought,ª° and laidª° uponª the mouthª of the den;ª and the kingª sealedª° it with his own signet,ª and with the signetª of his lords;ª that¹ the purposeª might notª be changedª° concerning Daniel.ª" {Dan 6:17}; Let it be inserted among the permanent laws, and be made a part of the constitution of the empire. The Persians seem to have affected such a degree of wisdom in the construction of their laws, that they never could be amended, and should never be repealed; and this formed the ground of the saying, "The laws of the Medes and Persians that change not."
Heb. her companion
that is better:
"And Samuelª saidª° unto¹ him, The LORDª hath rentª°¹ the kingdomª of Israelª from¹¹ thee this day,ª and hath givenª° it to a neighbourª of thine, [that is] betterª than¹ thou." {1Sm 15:28} + "And all¹ Israelª heardª° of¹ the judgmentª which¹ the kingª had judged;ª° and they fearedª°¹¹ the king:²¹ for¹ they sawª° that¹ the wisdomª of Godª [was] in him,ª to doª° judgment.ª" {1Kg 3:28}
