Esther 10

Everett's Study Notes on the Holy ScripturesEverett's Study Notes

Verses 1-3

Esther 10:1-3 Conclusion Esther 1:1-3 serves as a conclusion to the book of Esther. The additional records of Mordecai’s deeds are not recorded and preserved in the book of Esther, except for his role in delivering the Jews from the destruction by Haman. Perhaps God does not allow man to be exalted above Himself. The book of Esther is written to give glory to God for His great power and salvation to the righteous.

Esther 10:1 And the king Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and upon the isles of the sea.

Esther 10:2 And all the acts of his power and of his might, and the declaration of the greatness of Mordecai, whereunto the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia?

Esther 10:3 For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed.
