Esther 2:11 (King James Version)
And Mordecai walked every day before the court of the women's house, to know how Esther did, and what should become of her.
- The apartments of the women are accounted so inviolable, that it is even a crime to enquire what passes within their walls. A man, says Chardin, may walk a hundred days, one after the other, by the house where the women are, and yet know no more what is done there than at the farther end of Tartary. This sufficiently explains the conduct of Mordecai.
