Bible: Esther 4:12-14

4:12 When Esther’s reply 1  was conveyed to Mordecai, 4:13 he 2  said to take back this answer to Esther: 4:14 Don’t imagine that because you are part of the king’s household you will be the one Jew 3  who will escape. If you keep quiet at this time, liberation and protection for the Jews will appear 4  from another source, 5  while you and your father’s household perish. It may very well be 6  that you have achieved royal status 7  for such a time as this!
