A brief summary of the story:
King Xerxes gets very angry at his queen, Vashti, and banishes her. He chooses the beautiful young Jewish woman Esther to be his new queen, but he doesn’t know she is Jewish. Her Uncle Mordecai refused to bow down to the king’s new adviser Haman, who got so angry that he wanted Mordecai and all of the Jewish people killed.
Queen Esther knew she could stop the massacre by telling the king she was a Jew – and after inviting the king and Haman to two dinner parties, she finally worked up the courage to tell him. And King Xerxes got very angry … at Haman! Haman was killed, the Jews were saved, and Esther became a hero to her people.

கர்த்தருடைய கண்கள் நீதிமான்கள்மேல் நோக்கமாயிருக்கிறது; அவருடைய செவிகள் அவர்கள் கூப்பிடுதலுக்குத் திறந்திருக்கிறது. (சங்கீதம் 34:15)
