    Douay-Rheims - Esther 9:26

    And since that

    Nu 16:40 Eze 39:11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:26

    Por esto llamaron a estos días Purim, del nombre Pur. Por todas las palabras pues de esta carta, y por lo que ellos vieron sobre esto, y lo que llegó a su noticia,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Esther 9:26

    Verse 26. They called these days Purim] That is from pari, the lot; because, as we have seen, Haman cast lots to find what month, and what
    day of the month, would be the most favourable for the accomplishment of his bloody designs against the Jews. See on chap. iii. 7. And of that which they had seen] The first letter to which this second refers, must be that sent by Mordecai himself. See Esther ix. 20.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 26. Wherefore they called these days Purim, after the name of Pur , etc.] The lot; because of the lots cast by Haman; (see
    Esther 3:7), therefore for all the words of this letter ; in obedience to what Mordecai wrote in his letter to the Jews, and because of the things contained in it: and of that which they had seen concerning this matter ; with their own eyes, in the several provinces where their enemies rose up to assault them, but were destroyed by them: and what had come unto them : by report; as the fall of Haman, and advancement of Mordecai, and the favours shown to Esther and her people; all this belongs to the following verse, containing the reasons of the Jews’ appointment and engagement to observe the days of Purim.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
