SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:20 Â¶ Y escribió Mardoqueo estas cosas, y envió cartas a todos los judíos que estaban en todas las provincias del rey Asuero, cercanos y distantes,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Esther 9:20 Verse 20. Mordecai wrote these things] It has been supposed that thus far that part of the book of Esther, which was written by Mordecai extends: what follows to the end, was probably added either by Ezra, or the men of the Great Synagogue; though what is said here may refer only to the letters sent by Mordecai to the Jews of the provinces. From this to the end of the chapter is nothing else than a recapitulation of the chief heads of the preceding history, and an account of the appointment of an annual feast, called the feast of Purim, in commemoration of their providential deliverance from the malice of Haman.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. And Mordecai wrote these things , etc.] The transactions of those two days, and the causes of them, as well as the following letter; some conclude from hence that he was the penman of the book; and so he might be, but it does not necessarily follow from hence: and sent letters unto all the Jews that were in all the provinces of the King Ahasuerus, both nigh and far ; such as were near the city Shushan, and those that were at the greatest distance from it; these were more especially the things he wrote.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 20-32 - The observance of the Jewish feasts, is a public declaration of the truth of the Old Testament Scriptures. And as the Old Testamen Scriptures are true, the Messiah expected by the Jews is come long ago and none but Jesus of Nazareth can be that Messiah. The festival wa appointed by authority, yet under the direction of the Spirit of God It was called the feast of Purim, from a Persian word, which signifie a lot. The name of this festival would remind them of the almight power of the God of Israel, who served his own purposes by the superstitions of the heathen. In reviewing our mercies, we shoul advert to former fears and distresses. When our mercies are personal we should not by forgetfulness lose the comfort of them, or withhol from the Lord the glory due to his name. May the Lord teach us to rejoice, with that holy joy which anticipates and prepares for the blessedness of heaven. Every instance of Divine goodness to ourselves is a new obligation laid on us to do good, to those especially who mos need our bounty. Above all, redemption by Christ binds us to be merciful, 2Co 8:9 __________________________________________________________________
