The Book of Esther
The King of Persia Ahasuerus Anger
King Ahasuerus and Esther the Queen Saga
Glad to have you back once again at Daily Bread to share this unique
story. Looking back, Haman had just been humbled unbeknownst to the
king, when he was ordered to parade Mordecai around the city in honor
of saving the king's life.
Then after going home and crying in shame to his wife and friends, he
was promptly picked up by the king's chamberlains to be brought to
the banquet of wine that queen Esther had prepared.
When the king and Haman arrived, the king asked once again, What is
your petition, queen Esther and it will be granted to you. Whatever
your request is, it will be granted, even up to half of the kingdom.
The King of Persia Ahasuerus Teaching
King Ahasuerus and Esther the Queen Concern
Esther answered, If I've found favor in your eyes, O king, let my
life and the life of my people be spared. We've been sold to be
destroyed. If we had been sold for slaves, I would've held my peace,
even though the enemy couldn't compensate for the king's loss.
Ahasuerus said, Who dares presume in his heart to do such a thing?
Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman! The king
in anger, getting up and leaving the banquet, went into the palace
garden. Haman was afraid and he stood up to beg for his life from
Esther because he saw that the king determined evil against him.
Haman threw himself on the bed where Esther was and just then, the
king returned from the garden to the banquet. Infuriated to see
Ahasuerus laying on the bed with his wife ... Said, "Will he assault
the queen also, with me in the house?" While the king spoke, they
covered Haman's face.
The King of Persia Ahasuerus Truth
King Ahasuerus and Esther the Queen Warning
Hungry for a little Daily Bread Crumb? It was the custom of the kings
of Persia, that their servants covered the face of anyone the king
was angry with, so the king wouldn't have to look at him anymore.
It was also a custom that the Romans, the Macedonians and possibly
the Persians commonly muffled the heads of prisoners with a napkin or
veil before executing them.
One of the king's chamberlains told the king, There is a gallows,
fifty cubits high, that Haman had made, for Mordecai the man who
saved the king, at Haman's house. The king said, Hang him on it. So
they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai.
Then the king's anger was pacified.
The King of Persia Ahasuerus Summary
King Ahasuerus and Esther the Queen Conclusion
Well, that wasn't the end of the matter. Don't forget that Haman
convinced the king to put in writing and seal with the king's ring,
that Mordecai and his people would be destroyed. Although Haman has
been hung, the writing was still standing.
We'll find out more of what happened when God's divine hand assists
Esther and Mordecai in helping to save His people, next time, at
