1Now Mordecai took his rest in the courtyard with Gabatha and Tharra, the two eunuchs of the king who kept watch in the courtyard. 2He overheard their conversation and inquired into their purposes, and learned that they were preparing to lay hands upon Artaxerxes the king; and he informed the king concerning them. 3Then the king examined the two eunuchs, and when they confessed they were led to execution. 4The king made a permanent record of these things, and Mordecai wrote an account of them. 5And the king ordered Mordecai to serve in the court and rewarded him for these things. 6But Haman, the son of Hammedatha, a Bougaean, was in great honour with the king, and he sought to injure Mordecai and his people because of the two eunuchs of the king.
