    It struck me this morning that there are different expressions in the megila for the ?????.

    First ??? plans ?????? ?? ?? ??????? but only asks permission from ???????? to ????. The letters say ?????? ????? ?????, but ????? only tells ???? about the ?????? part of it.

    I have an idea that I am working on to explain this. Was wondering if anyone else noticed this and what they had to offer as a ??? – ????? ???? or otherwise!

    Question 2:

    In ??? ?’, we say the ten sons of Haman were hung.

    A few pesukinm later we mention how Esther asks Achashveirush for an extra day for the people of Shushan to fight and to kill the ten sons of Haman.

    But we already said they were hung?

    After Mordechai told Esther that is she didn’t go to the king the jews would be saved in another way but her family would be annihilated, what right did she have to go to the king?

    yaff80 – as WIY says – the gaon and Malbim answer these questions –

    You wont figure it out on your own and once you understand it their way the story is way different then you probably think right now. There are some great shiurim online if your interested

    WIY & Tina18:

    Can you provide a grid reference for the Gra or Malbim? I looked in the GRA and couldnt find an answer to Question 1.

    Le’abed is the effect. Haman needed permission from Achashveirosh to empty out his land. The Gemara talks about those who would have killed us out but didn’t want to be seen as a sliced up kingdom. Achashveirosh wouldn’t really mind having the Jews killed. It is losing subjects that would be the issue.

    Le’hashmid means to wipe out. That says all you need to know if you are trying to be specific. When arousing the public he used all descriptions: wipe-out, kill and decimate.

    Re: Hanging of Haman’s sons – The Megillah tells us they were hanged (almost as an aside), THEN goes on to recount the actual events leading to the hanging.
