9:26 Pur - This Persian word signifies a lot, because Haman had by lot determined this time to be the time of the Jews destruction.

9:27 As joined - Gentile Proselytes; who were obliged to submit to other of the Jewish laws, and therefore to this also; the rather because they enjoyed the benefit of this day's deliverance; without which the Jewish nation and religion had been in a great measure, if not wholly, extinct. According - According to that writing which was drawn up by Mordecai, and afterwards confirmed by the consent of the Jews.

9:29 Wrote - The former letter, ver.#20|, did only recommend but this enjoins the observation of this solemnity: because this was not only Mordecai's act, but the act of all the Jews, binding themselves and posterity.

9:30 Peace - With peace, friendship and kindness to his brethren, and truth, sincerity.
