Esther 2:8

Context

2:8 It so happened that when the king’s edict and his law became known 1  many young women were taken to Susa the citadel to be placed under the authority of Hegai. Esther also was taken to the royal palace 2  to be under the authority of Hegai, who was overseeing the women.

Esther 2:15

Context

2:15 When it became the turn of Esther daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai (who had raised her as if she were his own daughter 3 ) to go to the king, she did not request anything except what Hegai the king’s eunuch, who was overseer of the women, had recommended. Yet Esther met with the approval of all who saw her.

1 tn Heb “were heard” (so NASB); NRSV “were (had been NIV) proclaimed.”

2 tn Heb “the house of the king.” So also in vv. 9, 13. Cf. NLT “the king’s harem.”

3 tn Heb “who had taken her to him as a daughter”; NRSV “who had adopted her as his own daughter.”
