"In fact, if you don't speak up at this very important time, relief and rescue will appear for the Jews from another place, but you and your family will die. But who knows? Maybe it was for a moment like this that you came to be part of the royal family."
Esther 4:14 CEB
From the #CEBStudyBible: "Esther's words make it clear that she isn't a coward ... By declaring a general fast—in which she and her female servants will participate—she signals her piety, her humility, and the extent to which she openly identifies with her people. Through fasting and prayer, Esther seeks to enlist God's blessing and aid when she goes to the king to plead for their lives."
