I think that you are referring to Macbeth's whole invite to Banquo for their "solemn supper". He really intends to have Banquo and Fleance killed hence the pause. Check this out,
Here’s our chief guest.
(indicating BANQUO) Here’s our most important guest.
If he had been forgotten,
It had been as a gap in our great feast,
And all-thing unbecoming.
If we forgot him, our big celebration wouldn’t be complete, and that wouldn’t be any good.
Tonight we hold a solemn supper, sir,
And I’ll request your presence.
