children he had. He went on and on about all the great things that the king
had entrusted to him and how he was above all the other princes and servants
of the king.

wife, Zeresh and all his friends said to him, Make a gallows 75 feet high
and tomorrow, ask the king if Mordecai can be hanged on it, then you can go
in happily with the king and enjoy the queenís banquet.
