Esther 2:21 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When Esther's turn came to go in unto the king, she required nothing (to take with her, see Esther 2:13) but what Hegai the king's chamberlain appointed (hence as not concerned to please the king by special adornment), and she obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her, namely, by her modesty and humility. On חן נשׂא, see remarks on Esther 2:9.
