  • Richard Ankrah for verse 11
    It is satifying to know that God has hidden the mystery of how He created all things and continually does HIS things to His glory alone least man may boast of imitating what God has done.At His own time, place, how, when and who He chooses is what man cannot understand it. Esther was a Jew but God changed her status just like Joseph, Jabez, Daniel and all those known in the Bible. Whatever God had done does not make sense to man and so will it be.
