Mordecai, Esther's uncle, or possibly older cousin, who raised her as his own daughter after her parents died, may have been a descendant of the father of Saul, Israel's first king (compare 1 Samuel 9:1). However, if so, the genealogy in this verse is quite abbreviated. Alternatively, the Kish and Shimei mentioned in this verse may have been different men than those who lived in David's day, though of the same tribe.
