Haman and Ahasuerus visit Esther

Haman and Ahasuerus visit Esther
Azor masters ca. 1430
illumination (63 × 88 mm) — 15th century
Esther 5:6 - And the king said unto Esther at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed.
During the meal, Ahasuerus asks Esther what he can do for her – charmed as he is, he offers her half his kingdom. All Esther asks is for the king and Haman to return to her table the next day. During this meal, the king grants her a request. She asks him to spare her people and points out Haman as one who incites hatred. Esther also tells the king that she is Jewish.
