The first form of biblical interpretation is the literal meaning. The text says what it says, so there. Anyone who can read, can simply pick up the book and read it. That is all that it takes to understand the Bible. Just read it. Perhaps the English is a little old fashioned, but that is no big deal. Jesus walked down the road. That is all there is in the literal sense.
The curse for David’s enemies (Ps 69:22-69:29)
“Let their own table be a trap for them!
Let their own table be a snare for their allies!
Let their eyes be darkened,
So that they cannot see!
Make their loins tremble continually!
Pour out your indignation upon them!
Let our burning anger overtake them!
May their camp be desolation!
Let no one live in their tents!
They persecute those
Whom you have struck down.
They persecute those
Whom you have wounded.
They attack still more.
Add guilt to their guilt!
May they have no acquittal from you!
Let them be blotted out of the book of the living!
Let them not be enrolled among the righteous!
But I am lowly.
I am in pain.
Let your salvation!
Protect me high!”
These are a series of curses or wishes against the enemies of David. His enemies’ tables should be a trap or snare to them and their friends. He wanted them to lose their sight and to tremble all the time. God’s indignation and anger should be upon them. Their camp should be desolate so that they could not live in their tents. They had persecuted and attacked those who had been wounded. Their guilt pilled on guilt. They should not be acquitted. They should be blotted out of the book of the living. They should not be listed among the righteous. They should die. Then there is the cry of David to protect him and bring him salvation.
Mordecai and the plot to kill the king (Esth 2:21-2:23)
“While Mordecai was sitting in the royal courtyard, two of the king’s eunuchs, Bigthan and Terseh, who were the chief bodyguards, became angry. They conspired to assassinate King Artaxerxes. This matter became known to Mordecai, who warned Queen Esther. She, in turn, revealed the plot to the king in the name of Mordecai. When the affair was investigated and found to be true, the men were both hanged. Then the king ordered a memorandum to be deposited in the royal library in praise of the goodwill shown by Mordecai. It was recorded in the book of the annals in the presence of the king.”
The names of the 2 eunuchs are only in the Hebrew text, not the Greek text. Eunuchs were personal bodyguards. Perhaps this relates to the preliminary Greek text about the plot against the king, where Mordecai heard 2 eunuchs plotting to kill the king. There they confessed and were executed. It sounds very similar. Except here, Mordecai told Esther who then told the king. Here it is very clearly recorded in the annals of the king.
