He also gave him a copy of the written decree for their destruction that had been issued in Shushan, so that he could show it to Esther and to explain it to her, and to command her to go to the king to make supplication to him and to make a request before him for her people. Bible see other translations

“explain it to her.” It is very possible that Esther could not read the decree and needed it to be explained to her.
