“But Mordecai bowed not down, nor prostrated himself before him.”
From the above we learn that Mordecai was a G-D Fearing, Righteous Man. And … So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him. And …
“the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand.”
“Then the king said … : ‘Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king’s gate; let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken.’ And Mordecai returned to the king’s gate.”
“Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and …. the king took off his ring, which he had taken …, and gave it unto Mordecai.”
“Write ye also concerning the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s ring; for the writing which is written in the king’s name, and sealed with the king’s ring, may no man reverse.’ and …”
Mordecai went forth from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a robe of fine linen and purple; and the city of Shushan shouted and was glad. The Jews had light and gladness, and joy and honour. And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had gladness and joy, a feast and a good day. And many from among the peoples of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews was fallen upon them.
