Esther 7


Haman's Plot Is Revealed

1And they entered, the king and Haman, to drink together with the queen. 2[4said 1And 2the 3king] to Esther on the second day at the banquet, What is it queen Esther? And what is your request? And what is your petition? And it will be yours unto half of my kingdom! 3And answering she said, If I found favor before the king, let him give life to my request, and my people to my petition. 4[5were sold 1For 2both I 3and 4my people] into destruction, and ravaging, and slavery; we, and both our children for manservants and maidservants, and I neglected to speak; [4is not 1for 5worthy 2the 3slanderer] of the courtyard of the king. 5[4said 1And 2the 3king], Who is this who dared to do this thing? 6And Esther said, A man, an enemy, Haman, this wicked man. And Haman was disturbed before the king and the queen. 7And the king rose up from the party to go into the garden. And Haman appealed to the queen, for he saw himself [2in 3evils 1being]. 8[4returned 1And 2the 3king] from out of the garden; and Haman had fallen upon the bed petitioning the queen. [4said 1And 2the 3king], So as even with my wife you use force in my house. And Haman, hearing, was overawed in front of him. 9[6said 1And 2Harbonah 3one 4of the 5eunuchs] to the king, Behold, [2even 3a tree 1Haman prepared] for Mordecai, to the one speaking for the king, and it was set straight up in the places of Haman -- [2cubits 1of fifty]. [4said 1And 2the 3king], Let him be crucified upon it! 10And Haman was hung upon the tree which he prepared for Mordecai. And then the king slackened from the rage.
