Esther

Henry's Concise Commentary on the BibleHenry's Concise

- Esther

by Matthew Henry

** We find in this book, that even those Jews who were scattered in the province of the heathen, were taken care of, and were wonderfully preserved, when threatened with destruction. Though the name of God be not in this book, the finger of God is shown by minute events for the bringing about his people's deliverance. This history comes in between Esther 1:1; Esther 1:1. * The royal feast of Ahasuerus. (1-9) Vashti's refusal to appear, The king's decree. (10-22)
