Esther 2:2-3; Esther 2:17; Esther 2:19
Then the king's attendants, who served him, said, "Let beautiful young virgins be sought for the king.
"Let the king appoint overseers in all the provinces of his kingdom that they may gather every beautiful young virgin to the citadel of Susa, to the harem , into the custody of Hegai, the king's eunuch, who is in charge of the women; and let their cosmetics be given them.
The king loved Esther more than all the women, and she found favor and kindness with him more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.
When the virgins were gathered together the second time, then Mordecai was sitting at the king's gate.
