During the meal, Ahasuerus asks Esther what he can do for her – charmed as he is, he offers her half his kingdom. All Esther asks is for the king and Haman to return to her table the next day. During this meal, the king grants her a request. She asks him to spare her people and points out Haman as one who incites hatred. Esther also tells the king that she is Jewish.
