Esther 2:21-23, "In those days, while Mordecai sat in the king’s gate, two of
the king’s chamberlains...were wroth , and sought to lay hand on the king
Ahasaerus ( Mordechai was made aware of an assassination being planned
on King Ahasaerus life” ...And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it
unto Esther the queen; and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai’s
name...And when inquisition was made of the matter, it was found out;
therefore they were both hanged on a tree: and it was written in the book of
the chronicles before the king". By Mordechai revealing this to Esther
