Esther 2:3-4

Context
2:3 And let the king appoint officers throughout all the provinces of his kingdom to gather all the attractive young women to Susa the citadel, to the harem 1  under the authority of Hegai, the king’s eunuch who oversees the women, and let him provide whatever cosmetics they desire. 2  2:4 Let the young woman whom the king finds most attractive 3  become queen in place of Vashti.” This seemed like a good idea to the king, 4  so he acted accordingly.

1 tn Heb “the house of the women” (so KJV, ASV). So also in vv. 9, 11, 13, and 14.

2 tn Heb “their ointments”; cf. NIV, CEV, NLT “beauty treatments.”

3 tn Heb “who is good in the eyes of the king.”

4 tn Heb “the matter was good in the eyes of the king.” Cf. TEV “The king thought this was good advice.”
