Bible Commentary for Esther 1:10

Wesley's Notes for Esther 1:10


1:8 The law - According to this law which the king had now made, that none should compel another to drink more than he pleased. How does this Heathen prince shame many, that are called Christians, who think they do not make their friends welcome, unless they make them drunk, and under pretence of sending the health round, send the sin round, and death with it!

1:9 Women - While the king entertained the men. For this was the common custom of the Persians, that men and women did not feast together.

1:12 Refused - Being favoured in this refusal by the law of Persia, which was to keep mens wives, and especially queens, from the view of other men.
