Esther 2:4 King James Version (KJV) 4 And let the maiden which pleaseth the king be queen instead of Vashti. And the thing pleased the king; and he did so. An American English Bible With Old Testament based on the Greek Septuagint 4 Then the woman who pleases the king will reign instead of Astin.' Well, this pleased the king, so it was done. My thoughts. Women should not seek to please men but seek to please God first and men should look for women who will please God before they please them.
