NEW LIFE LESSONS BSFBP: ďItís a Celebration!Ē (Esther 3:1-6)

1 After these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, andadvanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him. 2 And all the king'sservants, that were in the king's gate, bowed , and reverenced Haman: for the king had socommanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence . 3 Then the king'sservants, which were in the king's gate, said unto Mordecai, Why transgressest thou the king'scommandment? 4 Now it came to pass, when they spake daily unto him, and he hearkened not unto them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordecai's matters would stand : for he had toldthem that he was a Jew. 5 And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence , then was Haman full of wrath. 6 And he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai: wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai.
