Esther 6:2, Question 3. Why does this information comfort Achashverosh?

  • In the simple explanation, this information comforts Achashverosh because he sees that Mordechai is on his side.
  • Furthermore, as the Alshich points out, Mordechai is mentioned directly, without mention of Esther. According to Imrei Shefer, this alleviated Achashverosh’s paranoid concern about a Mordechai-Esther conspiracy to kill him.
