We are now to attend the second banquet to which
the king and Haman were invited: and there, I. Esther presents her
petition to the king for her life and the life of her people,
ver. 1-4. II. She plainly
tells the king that Haman is the man who designed her ruin and the
ruin of all her friends, ver. 5,
6. III. The king thereupon gave orders for the hanging
of Haman upon the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai, which
was done accordingly, ver.
7-10. And thus, by the destruction of the plotter, a
good step was taken towards the defeating of the plot.
