The Israelites that remained in Persia.
Practical aethiest – we say there is a God, but we act like there isn’t.
Resting in God’s providence
– Trust in God
– Rejoice in Him
– Praise Him

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds,
there is none who does good (Psa 14:1)
We see the world’s weight in Est 1:1-3
Ahasuerus (Persian name) = Xerxes
Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. (Pro 16:32)
The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord;
he turns it wherever he will. (Pro 21:1)
This is what Esther was up against. Much like us.
