Esther 4:9, Question 1. Why does the verse emphasize that Hasach elaborated on what Mordechai said?

ט וַיָּבוֹא הֲתָךְ וַיַּגֵּד לְאֶסְתֵּר אֵת דִּבְרֵי מָרְדֳּכָי

9. And Hasach came and elaborated to Esther the words of Mordechai.

  • M’nos HaLevi writes that Hasach fully elaborated on the serious situation faced by the Jews at this time.
  • Maamar Mordechai writes that he told Esther that it was indeed dangerous to speak to Mordechai in the street, as we see later.
  • Rav Moshe Dovid Valle writes that Hasach reported the words exactly the way he heard him, like a recording.
