REDEMPTION SONGS ~ SCROLL OF ESTHER is an in-depth study series of the actual biblical verses comprising Megillat Esther that contains the canonical story of Purim.
Megillat Esther, Chapter Nine; verses 11-15 “EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM”
As already narrated in the previous episodes, the Jewish People across the vast Persian Empire rose up to defend themselves against their mortal enemies. The offensive against those actively plotting genocide was stunningly successful.
Yet as previously elaborated, in the country’s Capital; Haman’s home base — they met fiercer resistance. A pitched battle ensues. Ultimately, the Jewish Defenders achieve full victory and the enemy’s demonic leadership, Haman’s Sons, were hung.
The many casualties were reported to the King, and he asks what else can be done to ensure the Jewish People’s lasting safety and security. Although, to be sure, the debriefed King first required an ethereal lesson in anger management.
At the Queen’s behest, and in view of Shushan’s still unresolved situation, Capital Jews are given yet another day to mop up. In fairness, the King does far more that agree, and by royal edict the Capital Battle rages for on another day.
This battle too meets great success, and it culminates in another symbolic hanging. Might this additional eerily foreshadow futuristic destruction of evil too?
Decoding these verses does indeed enable us to better appreciate the scope and breadth of the Divine Deliverance we experienced.
