Bible: Esther 3:2-4

3:2 As a result, 1  all the king’s servants who were at the king’s gate were bowing and paying homage to Haman, for the king had so commanded. However, Mordecai did not bow, 2  nor did he pay him homage.

3:3 Then the servants of the king who were at the king’s gate asked Mordecai, “Why are you violating the king’s commandment? 3:4 And after they had spoken to him day after day 3  without his paying any attention to them, they informed Haman to see whether this attitude on Mordecai’s part would be permitted. 4  Furthermore, he had disclosed to them that he was a Jew. 5
