    VERSE (4) -
    Es 4:11; 5:2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:4

    Entonces extendió el rey a Ester la vara de oro, y Ester se levantó, y se puso en pie delante del rey.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Then the king held out the golden
    sceptre towards Esther , etc.] As a token that she had not incurred his displeasure by coming into his presence without leave, and that she was admitted to speak and make her request; (see Esther 5:3) so Esther arose and stood before the king ; she rose from the ground on which she lay prostrate, and stood upon her feet, in an humble manner, to make her speech, and present her petition to the king.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 3-14 - It was
    time to be earnest, when the church of God was at stake. Esther though safe herself, fell down and begged for the deliverance of he people. We read of no tears when she begged for her own life, but although she was sure of that, she wept for her people. Tears of pit and tenderness are the most Christ-like. According to the constitutio of the Persian government, no law or decree could be repealed of recalled. This is so far from speaking to the wisdom and honour of the Medes and Persians, that it clearly shows their pride and folly. Thi savours of that old presumption which ruined all, We will be as gods It is God's prerogative not to repent, or to say what can never be altered or unsaid. Yet a way was found, by another decree, to authoriz the Jews to stand upon their defence. The decree was published in the languages of all the provinces. Shall all the subjects of an earthl prince have his decrees in languages they understand, and shall God' oracles and laws be locked up from any of his servants in an unknow tongue?
