Then called Esther for Hatach, one of the king's
chamberlains, whom he had appointed to attend upon her
Which, according to the Targum, was Daniel F1; but it
is not likely that Daniel should have lived to this time;
however, this officer was not only intrusted with the care of the
queen by the king, but she had also an high opinion of him, and
therefore employed him in this affair:
and gave a commandment to Mordecai, to know what it was,
and why it was;
what was the reason of his appearing in sackcloth, and why he did
not receive the clothes she sent him.
F1 So Midrash Esther, fol. 94. 3. & Jarchi
in Dan. iv. 5.
