Bible: Esther 2:5-7
2:5 Now there happened to be a Jewish man in Susa the citadel whose name was Mordecai. 1 He was the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjaminite, 2:6 who had been taken into exile from Jerusalem 2 with the captives who had been carried into exile with Jeconiah 3 king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had taken into exile. 2:7 Now he was acting as the guardian 4 of Hadassah 5 (that is, Esther), the daughter of his uncle, for neither her father nor her mother was alive. 6 This young woman was very attractive and had a beautiful figure. 7 When her father and mother died, Mordecai had raised her 8 as if she were his own daughter.
