I’ll approach the king, [an act] which goes against [palace] procedure, and if I’m to be executed, I’m to be executed [Esther 4:16]… If You care for me, Your Highness, and if it’s okay with Your Highness, give me my soul upon my request and my people upon my behest [Esther 7:3]... For how could I watch the evil that befalls my people, and how could I watch the extermination of my heritage? [Esther 8:6]

אָב֤וֹא אֶל־הַמֶּ֨לֶךְ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר לֹֽא־כַדָּ֔ת וְכַֽאֲשֶׁ֥ר אָבַ֖דְתִּי אָבָֽדְתִּי׃ [אסתר ד:טז]... אִם־מָצָ֨אתִי חֵ֤ן בְּעֵינֶ֨יךָ֙ הַמֶּ֔לֶךְ וְאִם־עַל־הַמֶּ֖לֶךְ ט֑וֹב תִּנָּֽתֶן־לִ֤י נַפְשִׁי֙ בִּשְׁאֵ֣לָתִ֔י וְעַמִּ֖י בְּבַקָּֽשָׁתִֽי׃ [אסתר ז:ג]... כִּ֠י אֵֽיכָכָ֤ה אוּכַל֙ וְֽרָאִ֔יתִי בָּֽרָעָ֖ה אֲשֶׁר־יִמְצָ֣א אֶת־עַמִּ֑י וְאֵֽיכָכָ֤ה אוּכַל֙ וְֽרָאִ֔יתִי בְּאָבְדַ֖ן מֽוֹלַדְתִּֽי׃ [אסתר ח:ו]ו

Avo el ha-melech asher lo chadat ve-cha’asher avad’ti avad’ti... Im matzati chen be-einecha ha-melech ve-’im al ha-melech tov tinaten li nafshi bi-sh’elati ve-ami be-vakashati... Ki eichacha uchal ve-ra’iti ba-raa asher yimtza et ami ve-’eichacha uchal ve-ra’iti be-avdan molad’ti.
