Esther 6:10, Question 5. Why does the verse use the word “es” before the nouns?

  • The Talmud (Pesachim 22b) teaches that the word, es, implies an addition.
  • Accordingly, the M’nos HaLevi explains that the verse uses the word “es” before each noun to imply the need to increase the amount of things Haman suggested, as the Talmud (Megillah 16a) suggested.
