    King James Bible - Esther 8:8

    Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse.

    World English Bible

    Write also to the Jews, as it pleases you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's
    ring; for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may not be reversed by any man."

    Douay-Rheims - Esther 8:8

    Write ye therefore to the Jews, as it pleaseth you, in the king's name, and seal the letters with my
    ring. For this was the custom, that no man durst gainsay the letters which were sent in the king's name, and were sealed with his ring.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Write ye also for the Jews, as it pleaseth you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's
    ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, no man may reverse.

    VERSE (8) -
    Es 3:12 1Ki 21:8

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:8

    Escribid pues vosotros a los judíos como bien os pareciere en el nombre del rey, y selladlo con el anillo del rey; porque la escritura que se escribe en el nombre del rey, y se sella con el anillo del rey, no es para revocarla.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Esther 8:8

    Verse 8. May no man reverse.] Whatever had passed the
    royal signet could never be revoked; no succeeding edict could destroy or repeal a preceding one: but one of a similar nature to the Jews against the Persians, as that to the Persians was against the Jews, might be enacted, and thus the Jews be enabled legitimately to defend themselves; and, consequently, placed on an equal footing with their enemies.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8.
    Write ye also for the Jews as it liketh you , etc.] Whatever may be thought fit and proper for their safety and security: in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s ring ; as the former letters were: for the writing which is written in the king’s name, and sealed with the king’s ring, may no man reverse ; which is a reason both for the writing and sealing of the present letters in this manner, and why the former could not be reversed; nor does it appear that they were, but that, in virtue of them, the people had power to rise and kill the Jews on the day appointed, if they dared, or were so disposed; and these empowered the Jews to rise in their own defence, and kill all that made any attempts upon them, for which they had the royal authority; and these letters coming after the other, though they did not formally reverse them, which might not be done, yet rendered them ineffectual.

    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?
