    Es 3:8-13

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:1

    ¶ Cuando supo Mardoqueo todo lo que se había hecho, rasgó sus vestidos, y se vistió de cilicio y de ceniza, y se fue por medio de la ciudad clamando con grande y amargo clamor.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Esther 4:1

    Verse 1.
    Mordecai rent his clothes] He gave every demonstration of the most poignant and oppressive grief. Nor did he hide this from the city; and the Greek says that he uttered these words aloud: airetai eqnov mhden hdikhkov, A people are going to be destroyed, who have done no evil!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. When
    Mordecai perceived all that was done , etc.] By the king, at the instigation of Haman, against the Jews; which he came to the knowledge of, either by some of the conflicts or by common fame, or on the sight of the edicts which were published in Shushan; though the Jews think it was made known to him in a supernatural way, either by Elijah, as the former Targum f124 , or by the Holy Ghost, as the latter: Mordecai rent his clothes : both behind and before, according to the same Targum; and this was a custom used in mourning, not only with the Jews, but with the Persians also, as Herodotus relates: and put on sackcloth with ashes ; upon his head, as the former Targum; which was usual in mourning, even both; ( Job 2:12 Daniel 9:3) and went out into the midst of the city ; not Elam the province, as Aben Ezra, but the city Shushan: and cried with a loud and bitter cry ; that all the Jews in the city might be alarmed by it, and inquire the reason of it, and be affected with it; and a clamorous mournful noise was used among the Persians, as well as others, on sad occasions f126 .

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 -
    Mordecai avowed his relation to the Jews. Public calamities, tha oppress the church of God, should affect our hearts more than an private affliction, and it is peculiarly distressing to occasio sufferings to others. God will keep those that are exposed to evil by the tenderness of their consciences.
