Esther 4:1-4 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Mordecai Appeals to Esther

When Mordecai learned all that had occurred, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and ashes, went into the middle of the city, and cried loudly and bitterly. He went only as far as the King’s Gate, since the law prohibited anyone wearing sackcloth from entering the King’s Gate. There was great mourning among the Jewish people in every province where the king’s command and edict came. They fasted, wept, and lamented, and many lay in sackcloth and ashes.

Esther’s female servants and her eunuchs came and reported the news to her, and the queen was overcome with fear. She sent clothes for Mordecai to wear so that he would take off his sackcloth, but he did not accept them.

for suddenly the destroyer will come on us.

30 Because of you, they raise their voices
and cry out bitterly.
They throw dust on their heads;
they roll in ashes.

and wrap themselves in sackcloth.
They weep over you
with deep anguish and bitter mourning.
