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.
