Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther
Gave in charge to the messengers what they should say to Esther from him, by way of reply:
think not with thyself that thou shall escape in the king's house, more
than all the Jews;
signifying that her being queen, and in the king's palace, would be no protection to her; and she would be no safer there than the Jews elsewhere, since they had no greater enemies any where than in the king's court; and it was or would be known of what nation she was, and therefore must not expect to escape the fury of the enemy.
