Esther 7


7:1 So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.
7:2 And the king said again to Esther on the second day at the
 banquet of wine, What [is] thy petition, queen Esther? and it
 shall be granted thee: and what [is] thy request? and it shall
 be performed, [even] to the half of the kingdom.
7:3 Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found
 favor in thy sight, O king, and if it shall please the king,
 let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my
 request:
7:4 For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be
 slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bond-men and
 bond-women, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not
 countervail the king's damage.
7:5 Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said to Esther the
 queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his
 heart to do so?
7:6 And Esther said, The adversary and enemy [is] this wicked
 Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.
7:7 And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath
 [went] into the palace-garden: and Haman stood up to make
 request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there
 was evil determined against him by the king.
7:8 Then the king returned out of the palace-garden into the
 place of the banquet of wine; and Haman had fallen upon the bed
 on which Esther [was]. Then said the king, Will he force the
 queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the
 king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.
7:9 And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king,
 Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had
 made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth
 in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him upon it.
7:10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared
 for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.
