Book of Esther: Chapter 5

Now it came about on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner corner of the king’s palace in front of the king’s rooms, and the king was sitting on his royal throne in the throne room, opposite the entrance to the palace. When the king sized or the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in His sight and the king extend it to Esther the golden scepter, which was in his hand. So Esther came near and touch the top of the scepter. Then the king said to her, what is troubling you, Queen Esther, and what is your request, even to half of the kingdom it shall be given to you. Esther said, If it pleases the king, may the king and Haman come this day to the banquet that I have prepared for him. Then the king said, Bring him in quickly that we may do as Esther desires. So the king and Haman came from To the banquet which Esther had prepared as they drank their wine at the banquet, the king said to Esther, what is your petition, for it shall be granted to you? And what is your request, even to half of the kingdom it shall be done. So Esther replied, My petition and my request is, if I have found favor in the sight of the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my petition and do what I request, may the king and Haman come to the banquet which I will prepare for them. And tomorrow I will do as the King says, then Haman went out that day glad and pleased of heart. But when Haman saw Mordecai in the king’s gate, and that he did not stand up or tremble before him, Haman was filled with anger against Mordecai. Haman controlled himself, however, went to his house and sent for his friends and his wife Suresh. Then Haman recounted to them the glory of His riches, and the number of his sons and every instance where the king had magnified him and how he had promoted him above the princes and servants of the king. Haman also said, even after the queen, let no one but me come with the king to the bank. with which he had prepared, and tomorrow also I am invited by her with the king. Yet all of this does not satisfy me every time I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate, then Suresh his wife and all his friends said to him, have a gallows 50 cubits high maiden in the morning as the King to have Mordecai hanged on it, then go joyfully with the king to the banquet, and the advice pleased Haman, so he had the gallows made. In this chapter of Esther, we learned that Esther held two banquets for the queen. The tempo, Sanai says that Esther held to feast for the king, to soften him up for her request, to prevent Heymans order of executing all the Jews in the Empire. She thought that she could uncover Heymans hatred of the Jews in the presence of the king. Now these dinners are feasts and banquets were wine feast. Therefore the participants in the feast specially the king and Haman actually The only participants got drunk. If Esther could get Haman drunk, she could get him to express his hatred of the Jews. Or at least she thought the second feast occurred because Heymans lips were not loosened, and he did not admit his hatred of the Jews. No, now culturally speaking, what does it mean when the king said to Esther, you’re gonna have half of my kingdom? Well, this is an idiomatic phrase, and it means the sky is the limit. The king was not going to give Esther half of his kingdom, but he did promise her whatever she wanted, she was going to get. Why did Haman attempt to kill Mordecai by hanging him in a tree. Now this is actually crucifixion. The target where Sean says that Haman discussed killing Mordecai and his wife Zehra ash and his friends. They told him that if Haman threw more tie into a fire, that he would survive like his ancestor Abraham survived a fire. And you can find that as a legend of Abraham and the fiery furnace. Haman was told that he could not use a sword because mordekaiser ancestor Isaac was saved from the sword. when Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac, Haman was told that he could not use water to suffocate Mordecai because Moses and the Israelites were saved from water when the Lord separated the Red Sea. Haman was told that he could not put Mordecai in the lion’s den because Daniel was saved from the lions den therefore Haman had no choice, but to try to crucify Mordecai. additional things we can find in the target rashaan is Esther offered a lengthly prayer to the Lord, in which she asked the Lord to stop the wickedness of Haman, who was going to have all the Jews of the Empire executed. Esther tells a tale of how Haman curse botched his death and hope that his daughter would become the queen. To prevent a woman’s daughter from becoming the queen, it was determined by the Lord that she would become defiled with excrement and with urine every day after his death. Therefore, Heymans daughter became very undesirable to the king. Haman was very angry that his daughter did not become the queen. It does, in a way imply that he knew that Esther was a Hebrew background thoughts about this chapter Esther tried to save her people by not revealing who she was. Instead, she tried to get Haman to admit his hatred to the king. Since the Persian kings favorite the Lord Esther thought that the king would be upset about what Haman did. It might be worth noting that if Esther went into the king admitted who she was, the risk to her and Uncle Mordecai might have been eliminated. Esther was wearing the stranger’s face. She was hiding her true identity to the king. She did this for fear of her life. Because of her deception. However Mordecai was dragged in a lesson here is that telling the truth is the best course because the truth always comes forward.
