Est. 8:16

Esther 8:16 The Jews had light and gladness and joy and honor.

This was how all the Jews were feeling. What had happened to Haman and Mordecai had filled them with hope and gave them a reason to celebrate! After two months of feeling like the world was ending, a beautiful ray of sunshine finally peered through the clouds. However, this reaction stands in stark contrast with that found in 4:3.
