MT note at the end of Esther

I see that after the text, there is a short note at the end of each book, what do these notes say?

"סכום הפסוקים של ספר קסז וחציו ותען אסתר ותאמר וסדרים ה"

Translation: The total [number] of verses of [this] book [are] 167 and its mid-point (in verse count) [is the verse] "Esther replied and said" [Esther 5:7] and it has five sedarim.

  • Is there somewhere I can refer to that has translated them all?

    For reference, the five sedarim start at: 1:1, 2:5, 3:8, 6:11 and 8:16

    @Phillip are you talking about all notes at the end of every book?
