I’m confounded by this verse (1:8):
גַּ֚ם וַשְׁתִּ֣י הַמַּלְכָּ֔ה עָשְׂתָ֖ה מִשְׁתֵּ֣ה נָשִׁ֑ים בֵּ֚ית הַמַּלְכ֔וּת אֲשֶׁ֖ר לַמֶּ֥לֶךְ אֲחַשְׁוֵרֽוֹשׁ׃
“Also, Queen Vashti made, from two women, the royal palace belonging to King Achasverosh.”
How did Queen Vashti build a palace out of people? The verse does not say the palace was built by 2 women, rather of two women. And if it’s allegorical, who are these mysterious two women?
