The King Plans to Honor Mordecai

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:1 - During that night [fn]the king could not sleep, so he gave an order to bring the book of records, the chronicles, and they were read before the king.
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:2 - And it was found written what Mordecai had reported about Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s eunuchs who were doorkeepers, that they had sought to [fn]attack King Ahasuerus.
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:3 - Then the king said, “What honor or dignity has been bestowed on Mordecai for this?” And the king’s servants who attended him said, “Nothing has been done for him.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:4 - So the king said, “Who is in the courtyard?” Now Haman had just entered the outer courtyard of the king’s palace in order to speak to the king about hanging Mordecai on the wooden gallows which he had prepared for him.
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:5 - So the king’s servants said to him, “Behold, Haman is standing in the courtyard.” And the king said, “Have him come in.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:6 - Haman then came in and the king said to him, “What is to be done for the man whom the king desires to honor?” And Haman said [fn]to himself, “Whom would the king desire to honor more than me?”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:7 - Therefore Haman said to the king, “For the man whom the king desires to honor,
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:8 - have them bring a royal robe which the king has worn, and the horse on which the king has ridden, and on whose head a royal turban has been placed;
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:9 - then order them to hand the robe and the horse over to one of the king’s noble officials, and have them dress the man whom the king desires to honor, and lead him on horseback through the city square, and proclaim before him, ‘So it shall be done for the man whom the king desires to honor.’”

Haman Must Honor Mordecai

Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:10 - Then the king said to Haman, “Quickly, take the robe and the horse just as you have said, and do so for Mordecai the Jew, who is sitting at the king’s gate; do not fail to do anything of all that you have said.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:11 - So Haman took the robe and the horse, and dressed Mordecai, and led him on horseback through the city square, and proclaimed before him, “So it shall be done for the man whom the king desires to honor.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:12 - Then Mordecai returned to the king’s gate, while Haman hurried home, mourning, with his head covered.
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:13 - And Haman informed Zeresh his wife and all his friends of everything that had happened to him. Then his wise men and Zeresh his wife said to him, “If Mordecai, before whom you have begun to fall, is [fn]of Jewish origin, you will not prevail over him, but will certainly fall before him.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEst 6:14 - While they were still talking with him, the king’s eunuchs arrived and quickly brought Haman to the banquet which Esther had prepared.

Or kill; lit put out a hand against
Lit in his heart
Lit from the seed of the Jews
