Ahasuerus Esther 10

Esther 10 1-3 "And the king Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and upon the isles of the sea. And all the acts of his power and of his might, and the declaration of the greatness of Mordecai, whereunto the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia? For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed."

This concludes the book of Esther. It is worthy of repeated reading. During the captivity, one might have traveled through Jerusalem and seen the shame that disobedience causes but if the journey continued to the countries where the Jews were scattered one would see the loving care of the LORD for his people.

Next we venture into the book of Job. It is a blessed book and fearful. Fearful because we see Satan accusing Job before God and the test Job had to endure. Blessed because we will also see the beautiful and mighty things Job learned about his God.

Job 1:1 "There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil."
