Esther 2:2, Question 4. What does the verse mean that the women found for Achashverosh had to look “good?”

The advisers realized that they needed to replace Vashti. Her royal lineage was irreplaceable, but they still hoped to find someone who could replace her physical beauty. Malbim adds that these advisers were saying that Achashverosh did not even need a woman of lineage – he was great enough on his own without that!
