    King James Bible - Esther 8:17

    And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.

    World English Bible

    In every province, and in every city, wherever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had gladness, joy, a feast, and a good
    day. Many from among the peoples of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews was fallen on them.

    Douay-Rheims - Esther 8:17

    And in all peoples, cities, and provinces, whithersoever the king's commandments came, there was wonderful rejoicing, feasts and banquets, and keeping holy
    day: insomuch that many of other nations and religion, joined themselves to their worship and ceremonies. For a great dread of the name of the Jews had fallen upon all.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good
    day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:17

    Y en cada provincia y en cada ciudad donde llegó el mandamiento del rey, los judíos tuvieron alegría y gozo, banquete y día de placer. Y muchos de los pueblos de la tierra se hacían judíos, porque el temor de los judíos había caído sobre ellos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Esther 8:17

    Verse 17. Many-became
    Jews; for-fear] These were a species of converts not likely to bring much honour to true religion: but the sacred historian states the simple fact. They did profess Judaism for fear of the Jews, whether they continued steady in that faith or not.

    IT is only the Gospel which will not admit of coercion for the propagation and establishment of its doctrines. It is a spiritual system, and can be propagated only by spiritual influence. As it proclaims holiness of heart and life, which nothing but the Spirit of God can produce, so it is the Spirit of God alone that can persuade the understanding and change the heart. If the kingdom of Christ were of this world, then would his servants fight. But it is not from hence.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came , etc.] As they did to every province in the realm, and to every city in the province, where there were any Jews: the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day ; they expressed their joy on this occasion by keeping a festival, which in their language is called a good day; and such an one is annually kept by them unto this day, on account of their deliverance; of which (see Esther 9:27,28) and many of the people of the land became Jews ; or were proselyted, as both the Targums and Jarchi interpret it; they embraced the Jewish religion, and submitted to the rites and ceremonies of it; were circumcised, as in the Septuagint version, and so were proselytes of righteousness; and indeed no other could they be, dwelling in their own land; many of them very probably were serious in it, observing the wonderful manner in which the Jews were delivered; wherein manifestly appeared to them the providence of God, the hand of the Supreme Being, and from hence concluded their God must be the true God, and they his favourite people, and their religion most correct; though others might only do it to gain the favour of Esther and Mordecai, who had now such great power and influence at court: for the fear of the Jews fell upon them ; lest they should be slain by them, in virtue of this new edict.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
