Esther’s Plea1 Now the king and Haman came to drink wine with Esther the queen. 2 And the king said to Esther on the second day also ▼
▼ Lit at the banquet of wineas they drank their wine at the banquet b “What is your petition, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. And what is your request? c Even to half of the kingdom it shall be done.” 3 Then Queen Esther replied d “If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it pleases the king, let my life be given me as my petition, and my people as my request; 4 for e we have been sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, f to be killed and to be annihilated. Now if we had only been sold as slaves, men and women, I would have remained silent, for the ▼
▼ Or enemy could not compensate for the losstrouble would not be commensurate with the ▼
▼ Or damageannoyance to the king.” 5 Then King Ahasuerus ▼
▼ Lit said and said toasked Queen Esther, “Who is he, and where is he, ▼
▼ Lit whose heart has been filledwho would presume to do thus?” 6 Esther said k “A foe and an enemy is this wicked Haman!” Then Haman became terrified before the king and queen.
Haman Is Hanged7 The king arose l in his anger from ▼
▼ Lit the banquet of winedrinking wine and went into n the palace garden; but Haman stayed to beg for his life from Queen Esther, for he saw that harm had been determined against him by the king. 8 Now when the king returned from the palace garden into the ▼
▼ Lit house of the banquet of wineplace where they were drinking wine, Haman was falling on p the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, “Will he even assault the queen with me in the house?” As the word went out of the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face. 9 Then Harbonah, one of the eunuchs who were before the king said, “Behold indeed q the gallows standing at Haman’s house fifty cubits high, which Haman made for Mordecai r who spoke good on behalf of the king!” And the king said, “Hang him on it.” 10 s So they hanged Haman on the ▼
▼ Lit treegallows which he had prepared for Mordecai u and the king’s anger subsided.
