CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:18 Contempt - Contempt in the wives, and thereupon wrath in the husbands; and consequently strife in families.
Women everywhere will begin to despise their husbands when they learn that Queen Vashti has refused to appear before the king.
"So if it please the king, we suggest that you issue a written decree, a law of the Persians and Medes that cannot be revoked. It should order that Queen Vashti be forever banished from the presence of King Xerxes, and that the king should choose another queen more worthy than she.
