Esther 4:14, Question 6. Why is the word “eis” (“time”) used twice?

According to the M’nos HaLevi, the word “eis” (“time”) is used twice to address Esther’s concern about what she could possibly accomplish in a moment with the king. This “time” should bring to Esther’s mind another “time” not so long ago, when she was just an orphan living in Mordechai’s home. In mere moments, she became a queen. Esther should already know this secret: a moment can change everything.
