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.

Esther 2:11 In-Context

9 The girl pleased him and won his favor, and he quickly provided her with her cosmetic treatments and her portion of food, and with seven chosen maids from the king's palace, and advanced her and her maids to the best place in the harem.
10 Esther did not reveal her people or kindred, for Mordecai had charged her not to tell.
11 Every day Mordecai would walk around in front of the court of the harem, to learn how Esther was and how she fared.
12 The turn came for each girl to go in to King Ahasuerus, after being twelve months under the regulations for the women, since this was the regular period of their cosmetic treatment, six months with oil of myrrh and six months with perfumes and cosmetics for women.
13 When the girl went in to the king she was given whatever she asked for to take with her from the harem to the king's palace.
