Esther 3:13

13 Letters were sent by couriers a to each of the royal provinces telling the officials to destroy, kill, and annihilate all the Jewish people – young and old, women and children – and plunder their possessions on a single day, b the thirteenth day of Adar, the twelfth month.
LXX adds the text of Ahasuerus’s letter here.
