The eyes of all look to You,
From Handbook to Scripture, Day 135
READING: ESTHER 8
Yet another irony in this book is the fact that Mordecai was given the house of Haman, the deceased enemy of the Jews. Esther sought to reverse the decree that Haman had deceitfully carried out in the name of the king. Since the former decree could not be revoked, the king granted Esther and Mordecai the right to issue another royal decree that would counteract the decree engineered by Haman.
