Esther 5:10, Question 1. From what does Haman restrain himself?

י וַיִּתְאַפַּק הָמָן וַיָּבוֹא אֶלבֵּיתוֹ וַיִּשְׁלַח וַיָּבֵא אֶתאֹהֲבָיו וְאֶתזֶרֶשׁ אִשְׁתּוֹ

10. And Haman restrained himself. And he came to his house. And he sent for – and they came – his loved ones and Zeresh his wife.

  • Rashi writes that Haman restrains himself from taking revenge without the king’s permission.
  • Malbim says Haman would have gone back to the king to ask for the necessary permission.
