Esth 1:5-11

5When these days were completed, the king gave for all the people present in the citadel of Susa, both great and small, a banquet lasting for seven days, in the court of the garden of the king's palace.6There were white cotton curtains and blue hangings tied with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and marble pillars. There were couches of gold and silver on a mosaic pavement of porphyry, marble, mother-of-pearl, and colored stones.7Drinks were served in golden goblets, goblets of different kinds, and the royal wine was lavished according to the bounty of the king.8Drinking was by flagons, without restraint; for the king had given orders to all the officials of his palace to do as each one desired.9Furthermore, Queen Vashti gave a banquet for the women in the palace of King Ahasuerus.10On the seventh day, when the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha and Abagtha, Zethar and Carkas, the seven eunuchs who attended him,11to bring Queen Vashti before the king, wearing the royal crown, in order to show the peoples and the officials her beauty; for she was fair to behold.
