King Xerxes is more than a little peeved.
1. Today's Passage: Esther 7:1-10
Are you getting to know your bible?
Or if it is better for you find the chapter NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience, I have typed the chapter below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
1 So the king and Haman went to Queen Esther's banquet.
2. On this second occasion, while they were drinking wine, the king said to Esther, "Tell me what you want, Queen Esther. What is your request? I will give it to you, even if it is half the kingdom!"
3. Queen Esther replied, "If I have found favor with the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my request, I ask that my life and the lives of my people will be spared.
4. For my people and I have been sold to those who would kill, slaughter, and annihilate us. If we had merely been sold as slaves, I could remain quiet, for that would be too trivial a matter to warrant disturbing the king."
5. "Who would do such a thing?" King Xerxes demanded. "Who would be so presumptuous as to touch you?"
6. Esther replied, "This wicked Haman is our adversary and our enemy." Haman grew pale with fright before the king and queen.
7. Then the king jumped to his feet in a rage and went out into the palace garden.
Haman, however, stayed behind to plead for his life with Queen Esther, for he knew that the king intended to kill him.
8. In despair he fell on the couch where Queen Esther was reclining, just as the king was returning from the palace garden.
The king exclaimed, "Will he even assault the queen right here in the palace, before my very eyes?" And as soon as the king spoke, his attendants covered Haman's face, signaling is doom.
9. Then Harbona, one of the kings eunuchs, said, "Haman has set up a sharpened pole that stands seventy-five feet tall in his own courtyard. He intended to use it to impale Mordecai, the man who saved the king from assassination. "
"Then impale Haman on it!" the king ordered.
10. So they impaled Haman on the pole he had set up for Mordecai, and the king's anger subsided.
Esther 7:1-10 NLT
2. Oh my, Oh my!
3. I encourage you to read and reread this passage.
It is a wonderful example of God in His wildly protective and strong support.
It doesn't sit well for the world to attack His Children.
That's us folks!
That is us!
4. Thank you El Elyon, the Most High God.
Thank you for coming in and supporting us.
Keep us aware of your hand in our lives.
From the smallest to the largest things.
May we be aware of saying Thank You, for all you do for us.
we worship you.
