Esther’s Petition to the King

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:1 -

Then the king and Haman came to drink wine with Esther the queen.

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:2 - And the king said to Esther on the second day also [fn]as they drank their wine at the feast, “What is [fn]your petition, Queen Esther? It shall be given you. And what is [fn]your request? Even to half of the kingdom it shall be done.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:3 - Then Queen Esther answered and said, “If I have found favor in your eyes, O king, and if it seems good to the king, let my life be given to me as [fn]my petition, and my people as [fn]my request;
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:4 - for we have been sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be killed, and to be caused to perish. Now if we had only been sold as slaves, men and women, I would have remained silent, for the [fn]adversity would not be worth the [fn]annoyance to the king.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:5 - Then King Ahasuerus said—he said to Esther the Queen, “Who is this one, and where is this one, who fills his heart to do thus?”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:6 - So Esther said, “An adversary and an enemy is this evil Haman!” Then Haman became terrified before the king and queen.

Haman Is Hanged

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:7 - And the king arose in his wrath from [fn]drinking wine and went into the garden of his palace; but Haman stayed to seek for his life from Queen Esther, for he saw that calamity had been determined against him by the king.
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:8 - Now the king returned from the garden of his palace into the [fn]place where they were drinking wine. And Haman was falling on the couch where Esther was. So 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:9 - Then Harbonah, one of the eunuchs who were before the king, said, “Behold indeed, the gallows—which Haman made for Mordecai who spoke good on behalf of the king—are standing at Haman’s house fifty cubits high!” And the king said, “Hang him on it.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 7:10 - So they hanged Haman on the [fn]gallows which he had set up for Mordecai, and the king’s wrath subsided.
