Esther 11 Text (WEB)
  1. So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.
  2. The king said again to Esther, on the second day at the banquet of wine, "What is your petition, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. What is your request? Even to half of the kingdom it shall be performed."
  3. Then Esther the queen 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 bondservants and bondmaids, I would have held my peace, although the adversary could not have compensated for the king's loss."
  5. Then King Ahasuerus said to Esther the queen, "Who is he and where is he, who dared presume in his heart to do so?"
  6. Esther said, "An adversary and an enemy, even this wicked Haman!" Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.
  7. The king arose in his wrath from the banquet of wine and went into the palace garden. 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.
  8. Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman had fallen on the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, "Will he even assault the queen in front of me in the house?" As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.
  9. Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs who were with the king said, "Behold, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman has made for Mordecai, who spoke good for the king, is standing at Haman's house." The king said, "Hang him on it!"
  10. So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king's wrath was pacified.

Esther 11 Text (Latin)
  1. Anno quarto regnantibus Ptolemæo et Cleopatra, attulerunt Dosithæus, qui se sacerdotem, et Levitici generis ferebat, et Ptolemæus filius ejus hanc epistolam phurim, quam dixerunt interpretatum esse Lysimachum Ptolemæi filium in Jerusalem.
  2. Anno secundo, regnante Artaxerxe maximo, prima die mensis Nisan, vidit somnium Mardochæus filius Jairi, filii Semei, filii Cis, de tribu Benjamin :
  3. homo Judæus, qui habitabat in urbe Susis, vir magnus, et inter primos aulæ regiæ.
  4. Erat autem de eo numero captivorum, quos transtulerat Nabuchodonosor rex Babylonis de Jerusalem cum Jechonia rege Juda :
  5. et hoc ejus somnium fuit : apparuerunt voces, et tumultus, et tonitrua, et terræmotus, et conturbatio super terram :
  6. et ecce duo dracones magni, paratique contra se in prælium.
  7. Ad quorum clamorem cunctæ concitatæ sunt nationes, ut pugnarent contra gentem justorum.
  8. Fuitque dies illa tenebrarum et discriminis, tribulationis et angustiæ, et ingens formido super terram.
  9. Conturbataque est gens justorum timentium mala sua, et præparata ad mortem.
  10. Clamaveruntque ad Deum : et illis vociferantibus, fons parvus creavit in fluvium maximum, et in aquas plurimas redundavit.
Esther 11 Text (KJV)
  1. In the fourth year of the reign of Ptolemeus and Cleopatra, Dositheus, who said he was a priest and Levite, and Ptolemeus his son, brought this epistle of Phurim, which they said was the same, and that Lysimachus the son of Ptolemeus, that was in Jerusalem, had interpreted it. .
  2. In the second year of the reign of Artexerxes the great, in the first day of the month Nisan, Mardocheus the son of Jairus, the son of Semei, the son of Cisai, of the tribe of Benjamin, had a dream;
  3. Who was a Jew, and dwelt in the city of Susa, a great man, being a servitor in the king's court.
  4. He was also one of the captives, which Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon carried from Jerusalem with Jechonias king of Judea; and this was his dream:
  5. Behold a noise of a tumult, with thunder, and earthquakes, and uproar in the land:
  6. And, behold, two great dragons came forth ready to fight, and their cry was great.
  7. And at their cry all nations were prepared to battle, that they might fight against the righteous people.
  8. And lo a day of darkness and obscurity, tribulation and anguish, affliction and great uproar, upon earth.
  9. And the whole righteous nation was troubled, fearing their own evils, and were ready to perish.
  10. Then they cried unto God, and upon their cry, as it were from a little fountain, was made a great flood, even much water.
