Verse 13. Desired - For ornament, or by way of attendance. And it should be observed, that every one whom the king took to his bed, was his wife of a lower rank, as Hagar was Abraham's, so that it would have been no sin or dishonour to Esther, though she had not been made queen.
Verse 19. Sat - By office, as one of the king's guards or ministers; being advanced to this place by Esther's favour.
