so that he set:
"For¹ if¹ thou altogether²° holdest thy peaceª° at this¹ time,ª [then] shall there enlargementª and deliveranceª ariseª° to the Jewsª from another² place;ª¹¹ but thou¹ and thy father'sª houseª shall be destroyed:ª° and who¹ knowethª° whether¹ thou art comeª° to the kingdomª for [such] a timeª as this?¹" {Est 4:14} + "He raiseth upª° the poorª out of the dust,ª¹ [and] lifteth upª° the beggarª from the dunghill,ª¹ to setª° [them] among¹ princes,ª and to make them inheritª° the throneª of glory:ª for¹ the pillarsª of the earthª [are] the LORD'S,ª and he hath setª° the worldª upon¹ them." {1Sm 2:8} + "For¹ promotionª°°² [cometh] neither¹ from the east,ª¹ nor from the west,ª¹ nor¹ from the south.ª¹ ...

He hath put downª° the mightyª fromª [their] seats,ª andª exaltedª° them of low degree.ª" {Lke 1:48-52}; Bishop Patrick observes, that those who suggest that Esther committed a great sin to come at the dignity of queen of Persia, do not consider the custom of those times and countries. Every one that the king took to his bed was married to him, and was his wife of a lower rank, as Hagar was to Abraham.
