Bible: Esther 6:1-3

The Turning Point: The King Honors Mordecai

6:1 Throughout that night the king was unable to sleep, 1  so he asked for the book containing the historical records 2  to be brought. As the records 3  were being read in the king’s presence, 6:2 it was found written that Mordecai had disclosed that Bigthana 4  and Teresh, two of the king’s eunuchs who guarded the entrance, had plotted to assassinate 5  King Ahasuerus.

6:3 The king asked, “What great honor 6  was bestowed on Mordecai because of this?” The king’s attendants who served him responded, “Not a thing was done for him.”
