Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible

Esther 10

Verses 1-3

The Greatness of Mordecai

1. The isles of the sea] or, ’coast lands,’ i.e. the countries bordering on the Mediterranean. The description of the king’s dominion serves to enhance the glory of Mordecai, who was his minister.

3. Seeking the wealth] i.e. seeking to promote their welfare: cp. Ezra 9:12.
