    Da 6:14-18

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1

    ¬∂ Pasadas estas cosas, reposada ya la ira del rey Asuero, se acordů de Vasti, y de lo que hizo, y de lo que fue sentenciado sobre ella.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. After these things, when the
    wrath of King Ahasuerus was appeased , etc.] Which went off with his wine, and so was quickly after, a few days at most, unless this can be understood as after the expedition of Xerxes into Greece, from whence he returned to Shushan, in the seventh year of his reign; and if he is the Ahasuerus here meant, he married Esther that year, ( Esther 2:16) and it seems certain, that after his expedition he gave himself up to his amours, and in his way to Sardis he fell in love with his brotherís wife, and then with his daughter f75 : he remembered Vashti ; her beauty, and was grieved, as Jarchi observes, that she was removed from him; and so Josephus says f76 , that he passionately loved her, and could not bear parting with her, and therefore was grieved that he had brought himself into such difficulties: the Targumists carry it further, and say that he was wroth with those that advised him to it, and ordered them to be put to death, and that they were: and what she had done ; that it was a trivial thing, and not deserving of such a sentence as he had passed upon her; that it was not done from contempt of him, but from modesty, and a strict regard to the laws of the Persians: and what was decreed against her ; that she should come no more before him, but be divorced from him; the thought of which gave him great pain and uneasiness.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-20 - We see to what absurd practices those came, who were
    destitute of Divine revelation, and what need there was of the gospel of Christ, to purify men from the lusts of the flesh, and to bring them back to the original institution of marriage. Esther was preferred as queen. Thos who suggest that Esther committed sin to come at this dignity, do no consider the custom of those times and countries. Every one that the king took was married to him, and was his wife, though of a lower rank But how low is human nature sunk, when such as these are the leadin pursuits and highest worldly happiness of men! Disappointment an vexation must follow; and he most wisely consults his enjoyment, eve in this present life, who most exactly obeys the precepts of the Divin law. But let us turn to consider the wise and merciful providence of God, carrying on his deep but holy designs in the midst of all this And let no change in our condition be a pretext for forgetting ou duties to parents, or the friends who have stood in their place.
