Indeed, you have been brought into the King’s house for such a time as this. Do you not perceive that it is your destiny to be living in these days? And, do you not perceive that there is a task which I AM entrusting to you? Seek Me and I will prepare you for the task at hand. For indeed, you have been brought into the King’s house for such a time as this.
Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews. 14
For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
15Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer,
16Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
