Esther Agrees to Help the Jews
- "When Mor'decai learned all that had been done, Mor'decai rent his clothes and put on sackcloth and ashes, and went out into the midst of the city, wailing with a loud and bitter cry; "
- "he went up to the entrance of the king's gate, for no one might enter the king's gate clothed with sackcloth. "
- "And in every province, wherever the king's command and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, with fasting and weeping and lamenting, and most of them lay in sackcloth and ashes."
