so [G3779] today [G4594], the [G3588] wives of the sovereigns of the [G3588] rest [G3062] of the [G3588] rulers of Persians and [G2532] Medes hearing the [things] [G3588] against the [G3588] king having been said [G3004] by [G5259] her [G1473], they will dare [G5111] in like manner [G3668] to dishonor the [G3588]ir husbands [G1473].

And [G2532] thus [G3779] all [G3956] the [G3588] women [G1135] will invest [G4060] honor [G5092] to the [G3588]ir own husbands [G1438], from ones begging [G4434] unto [G2193] rich [G4145].
