A picture of “repentance toward God…”

Esther had the ten sons of Haman hanged. This is a picture of “repentance toward God,” when we rid ourselves of the enemy by putting to death the works of the flesh—the nature received from our father, the devil (see John 8:44; Eph. 2:2).

The works of the flesh are traced to transgression of the Ten Commandments (see 1 John 3:4). The ten sons of Haman (the ten sins of humanity) are rebellion against God, idolatry, blasphemy, Sabbath breaking, dishonoring parents, murder, adultery, theft, lying, and covetousness.

Esther 9:13 Then Esther said, If it pleases the king, let it be granted to the Jews who are in Shushan to do again tomorrow according to todays decree, and let Hamans ten sons be hanged on the gallows.
