Esther 2:11 Meaning and Commentary

Esther 2:11

And Mordecai walked every day before the court of the women's
house
Being one of the court, and in an high post, as Aben Ezra thinks, he might walk there without being examined, and called to an account for it:

to know how Esther did;
to inquire of her health and prosperity, or peace, the word here used signifies, even all sorts of it:

and what should become of her;
or was done to her, whether she was well used, or as yet introduced to the king, how it fared with her, and what befell her.
