SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:16 Y los otros judíos que estaban en las provincias del rey, también se juntaron y se pusieron en defensa de su vida, y tuvieron reposo de sus enemigos, y mataron de sus enemigos setenta y cinco mil; mas en el despojo no metieron su mano.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. But the other Jews that were in the king’s provinces gathered themselves together , etc.] In a body, in their respective provinces and cities: and stood for their lives ; defended themselves against those that attacked them: and had rest from their enemies ; that selfsame day; all being destroyed by them, and none daring to appear against them: and slew of their foes 75,000 men ; that is, in all the provinces put together: but they laid not their hands on the prey ; (see Gill on “ Esther 9:7”).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-19 - The enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them by the forme edict. If they had attempted nothing against the people of God, the would not themselves have suffered. The Jews, acting together strengthened one another. Let us learn to stand fast in one spirit, an with one mind, striving together against the enemies of our souls, wh endeavour to rob us of our faith, which is more precious than ou lives. The Jews, to the honour of their religion, showed contempt of wordly wealth, that they might make it appear they desired nothin except their own preservation. In every case the people of God shoul manifest humanity and disinterestedness, frequently refusing advantage which might lawfully be obtained. The Jews celebrated their festiva the day after they had finished their work. When we have received grea mercies from God, we ought to be speedy in making thankful returns to him.
