1In the fourth year of the reign of Ptolemeus and Cleopatra, Dositheus, who said he was a priest and Levite, and Ptolemeus his son, brought this epistle of Phurim, which they said was the same, and that Lysimachus the son of Ptolemeus, that was in Jerusalem, had interpreted it. 2In the second year of the reign of Artexerxes the great, in the first day of the month Nisan, Mardocheus the son of Jairus, the son of Semei, the son of Cisai, of the tribe of Benjamin, had a dream; 3Who was a Jew, and dwelt in the city of Susa, a great man, being a servitor in the king's court. 4He was also one of the captives, which Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon carried from Jerusalem with Jechonias king of Judea; and this was his dream:5Behold a noise of a tumult, with thunder, and earthquakes, and uproar in the land: 6And, behold, two great dragons came forth ready to fight, and their cry was great. 7And at their cry all nations were prepared to battle, that they might fight against the righteous people.
He was also one of the captiues, which Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon caried from Ierusalem, with Iechonias king of Iudea; and this was his dreame. - King James Version (1611) - View 1611 Bible Scan
