Two things are recorded in this chapter, which were working towards the deliverance of the Jews from Haman's conspiracy:—I. The advancement of Esther to be queen instead of Vashti. Many others were candidates for the honour (ver. 1-4); but Esther, an orphan, a captive-Jewess (ver. 5-7), recommended herself to the king's chamberlain first (ver. 8-11) and then to the king (ver. 12-17), who made her queen, ver. 18-20. II. The good service that Mordecai did to the king in discovering a plot against his life, ver. 21-23.
