Bible: Est 2:7

2:7 Now he was acting as the guardian 1  of Hadassah 2  (that is, Esther), the daughter of his uncle, for neither her father nor her mother was alive. 3  This young woman was very attractive and had a beautiful figure. 4  When her father and mother died, Mordecai had raised her 5  as if she were his own daughter.
