Zeresh (Hebrew: זֶרֶשׁ) was the wife of Haman the Agagite who is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible in the Book of Esther.

Zeresh advised her husband to prepare a high gallows (50 cubits) and to hang Mordecai on it. This plan was reversed when the king later ordered Haman and his ten sons to be hanged on the same gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai.
