Esther 2:13, Question 1. With what did the young woman come before the king?

יג וּבָזֶה הַֽנַּעֲרָה בָּאָה אֶלהַמֶּלֶךְ אֵת כָּלאֲשֶׁר תֹּאמַר יִנָּתֵן לָהּ לָבוֹא עִמָּהּ מִבֵּית הַנָּשִׁים עַדבֵּית הַמֶּלֶךְ

13. And with this a young woman would come to the king – anything she would say would be given her – to come with her from the house of women to the house of the king.

The Malbim says the young women brought with them the very beauty and health discussed in the previous verse. That was the only things they had.
