CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:9 Nor moved - To shew how little he feared him, and that he had a firm confidence in his God, that he would deliver him and his people in this great exigency.
Even after all the young women had been transferred to the second harem and Mordecai had become a palace official,
All the king's officials would bow down before Haman to show him respect whenever he passed by, for so the king had commanded. But Mordecai refused to bow down or show him respect.
When Haman saw that Mordecai would not bow down or show him respect, he was filled with rage.
Then he added, "But this is all worth nothing as long as I see Mordecai the Jew just sitting there at the palace gate."
