Poole's English Annotations on the Holy BiblePoole's Annotations



Ahasuerus’s greatness and Mordecai’s advancement.

Verse 1

i.e. Upon all his dominions, whether in thee main continent, or in the islands.

Verse 3

Accepted of the multitude of his brethren; who did not envy his greatness, as men most commonly do in such cases, but rejoiced in it, and blessed God for it, and praised and loved him for his right and sweet management of his vast power.

To all his seed; or, for all his seed, to wit, the Jews, who were of the same seed and root from which he was descended. He spoke and acted with great kindness and friendliness to them, when they resorted to him upon any occasion.
