Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Verse 6 (Esther 8:6)

To see the destruction of my kindred ? - She had now informed the king that she was cousin to Mordecai, and consequently a Jewess; and though her own life and that of Mordecai were no longer in danger, Haman being dead, yet the decree that had gone forth was in full force against the Jews; and if not repealed, their destruction would be inevitable.
