G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Esther 7



Verses 1-10

Events now moved rapidly forward. By the way of the banquet Haman passed to the gallows. It was a fierce and terrible judgment, and yet characterized by poetic justice. The man who for no reason other than his pride had prepared the gallows for Mordecai found himself suddenly stripped of all authority and ending his career by the very instrument his brutality had prepared for another.

The very core of Haman's hatred for Mordecai was his own self-centered and self-consuming pride and ambition. This was of so masterful a nature that one man's refusal to render homage to him inspired in him such hatred that he was determined to encompass, not the death of that man only, but also of all those who bore blood relation to him. The nets of evil plotting and malicious enterprise swing far out in the tides of human life, but never far enough to enmesh God. He remains beyond them all, and gathering them in the hands of His power He makes them include the men who weave them to destroy others.
