The Hebrew version of the book does not mention the name of God, and is
strangely void of spiritual content, while the ancient Greek version
(Septuagint) freely compensates for these omissions. It slightly differs
from the Hebrew text and adds six extensive chapters (A-F). It appears to
have been translated to Greek by an Alexandrian Jew named Lysimachus, in the
2nd century BC. The original Hebrew text appears to have been written by an
eyewitness possibly Mordecai himself.
