1 So the king and Haman came to banquet with Queen Esther.
2 And the king said again to Esther on the 2nd day at the wine banquet, What is your petition, queen Esther? and it will be granted you: and what is your request? and it will be performed, all the way to the half of the kingdom.
3 Then Queen Esther answered, If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request:
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 contract-slaves and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage.
5 Then the king Ahasuerus answered Queen Esther, Who is he, and where is he, that dared presume in his heart to do so?
6 And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.
7 And the king arising from the wine banquet in his fire-rage went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Queen Esther; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.
8 Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the wine banquet; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then the king says, 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.
9 And Harbonah {Destroying-Sword}, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, โ€œBehold also, the execution-stake 50 cubits high, which Haman made for Mordecai {Pure-Myrrh}, who spoke good for the king, stands in the house of Haman. Then the king said, โ€œHang him on it.โ€
10 So they hanged Haman on the execution-stake that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's fire-rage pacified.
