    Es 4:1-3,16 Ps 30:5-11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:16

    Los judíos tuvieron luz y alegría, y gozo y honra.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. And the
    Jews had light , etc.] Prosperity, as opposed to the darkness of adversity in which they had been, (see Isaiah 8:22,9:1,2), or lightsomeness and cheerfulness of spirit, as explained by the two next words: and gladness and joy ; at the good news of their deliverance, so unexpected by them; thus light is explained by gladness, ( Psalm 97:11) and honour : among men; from their neighbours, who before were held in contempt, as a people doomed to destruction.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-17 -
    Mordecai's robes now were rich. These things are not worth notice, but as marks of the king's favour, and the fruit of God's favour to his church. It is well with a land, when ensigns of dignity are made the ornaments of serious piety. When the church prospers, many will joi it, who will be shy of it when in trouble. When believers have rest and walk in the fear of the Lord, and the comfort of the Holy Ghost they will be multiplied. And the attempts of Satan to destroy the church, always tend to increase the number of true Christians __________________________________________________________________
