Yosef, Daniel, Esther and Mordechai and their Kings


"Nevuchadnezzar was uncircumcised and impure, Daniel was holy and pure… and he clothed Daniel in purple wool. 

"Pharaoh was uncircumcised and impure, and Yosef was pure and holy, and he coronated Yosef and clothed him in linen and placed a gold brooch upon his neck. 

"Achashverosh was uncircumcised and impure, and Mordechai was holy and pure, and he coronated Mordechai and clothed him and crowned him…"

נבוכדנצר ערל וטמא, דניאל קדוש וטהור... ומלביש לדניאל ארגוונא. פרעה ערל וטמא ויוסף טהור וקדוש, וממליך את יוסף ומלביש אותו בגדי שש, ומשים רביד הזהב על צוארו. אחשורוש ערל וטמא, ומרדכי קדוש וטהור, והוא ממליך את מרדכי ומלביש אותו ומכתירו...

(Midrash Tehillim 90:7)

Have a great day,
