Esther 7 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 the 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 Harbonah, 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 was the king's wrath pacified.
Esther 7 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויבא המלך והמן לשתות עם־אסתר המלכה׃
  2. ויאמר המלך לאסתר גם ביום השני במשתה היין מה־שאלתך אסתר המלכה ותנתן לך ומה־בקשתך עד־חצי המלכות ותעש׃
  3. ותען אסתר המלכה ותאמר אם־מצאתי חן בעיניך המלך ואם־על־המלך טוב תנתן־לי נפשי בשאלתי ועמי בבקשתי׃
  4. כי נמכרנו אני ועמי להשמיד להרוג ולאבד ואלו לעבדים ולשפחות נמכרנו החרשתי כי אין הצר שוה בנזק המלך׃ ס
  5. ויאמר המלך אחשורוש ויאמר לאסתר המלכה מי הוא זה ואי־זה הוא אשר־מלאו לבו לעשות כן׃
  6. ותאמר־אסתר איש צר ואויב המנ הרע הזה והמן נבעת מלפני המלך והמלכה׃
  7. והמלך קם בחמתו ממשתה היין אל־גנת הביתן והמן עמד לבקש על־נפשו מאסתר המלכה כי ראה כי־כלתה אליו הרעה מאת המלך׃
  8. והמלך שב מגנת הביתן אל־בית משתה היין והמן נפל על־המטה אשר אסתר עליה ויאמר המלך הגם לכבוש את־המלכה עמי בבית הדבר יצא מפי המלך ופני המן חפו׃ ס
  9. ויאמר חרבונה אחד מן־הסריסים לפני המלך גם הנה־העץ אשר־עשה המן למרדכי אשר דבר־טוב על־המלך עמד בבית המן גבה חמשים אמה ויאמר המלך תלהו עליו׃
  10. ויתלו את־המן על־העץ אשר־הכין למרדכי וחמת המלך שככה׃ ף
Esther 7 Text (Greek)
  1. εισηλθεν δε ο βασιλευς και αμαν συμπιειν τη
  2. ειπεν δε ο βασιλευς εσθηρ τη δευτερα ημερα εν τω ποτω τι εστιν εσθηρ βασιλισσα και τι το αιτημα σου και τι το αξιωμα σου και εστω σοι εως του ημισους της βασιλειας
  3. και αποκριθεισα ειπεν ει ευρον χαριν ενωπιον του βασιλεως δοθητω η ψυχη μου τω αιτηματι μου και ο λαος μου τω αξιωματι
  4. επραθημεν γαρ εγω τε και ο λαος μου εις απωλειαν και διαρπαγην και δουλειαν ημεις και τα τεκνα ημων εις παιδας και παιδισκας και παρηκουσα ου γαρ αξιος ο διαβολος της αυλης του
  5. ειπεν δε ο βασιλευς τις ουτος οστις ετολμησεν ποιησαι το πραγμα
  6. ειπεν δε εσθηρ ανθρωπος εχθρος αμαν ο πονηρος ουτος αμαν δε εταραχθη απο του βασιλεως και της
  7. ο δε βασιλευς εξανεστη εκ του συμποσιου εις τον κηπον ο δε αμαν παρητειτο την βασιλισσαν εωρα γαρ εαυτον εν κακοις
  8. επεστρεψεν δε ο βασιλευς εκ του κηπου αμαν δε επιπεπτωκει επι την κλινην αξιων την βασιλισσαν ειπεν δε ο βασιλευς ωστε και την γυναικα βιαζη εν τη οικια μου αμαν δε ακουσας διετραπη τω
  9. ειπεν δε βουγαθαν εις των ευνουχων προς τον βασιλεα ιδου και ξυλον ητοιμασεν αμαν μαρδοχαιω τω λαλησαντι περι του βασιλεως και ωρθωται εν τοις αμαν ξυλον πηχων πεντηκοντα ειπεν δε ο βασιλευς σταυρωθητω επ'
  10. και εκρεμασθη αμαν επι του ξυλου ο ητοιμασεν μαρδοχαιω και τοτε ο βασιλευς εκοπασεν του
Esther 7 Text (Latin)
  1. Intravit itaque rex et Aman, ut biberent cum regina.
  2. Dixitque ei rex etiam secunda die, postquam vino incaluerat : Quæ est petitio tua, Esther, ut detur tibi ? et quid vis fieri ? etiam si dimidiam partem regni mei petieris, impetrabis.
  3. Ad quem illa respondit : Si inveni gratiam in oculis tuis o rex, et si tibi placet, dona mihi animam meam pro qua rogo, et populum meum pro quo obsecro.
  4. Traditi enim sumus ego et populus meus, ut conteramur, jugulemur, et pereamus. Atque utinam in servos et famulas venderemur : esset tolerabile malum, et gemens tacerem : nunc autem hostis noster est, cujus crudelitas redundat in regem.
  5. Respondensque rex Assuerus ait : Quis est iste, et cujus potentiæ, ut hæc audeat facere ?
  6. Dixitque Esther : Hostis et inimicus noster pessimus iste est Aman. Quod ille audiens, illico obstupuit, vultum regis ac reginæ ferre non sustinens.
  7. Rex autem iratus surrexit, et de loco convivii intravit in hortum arboribus consitum. Aman quoque surrexit ut rogaret Esther reginam pro anima sua : intellexit enim a rege sibi paratum malum.
  8. Qui cum reversus esset de horto nemoribus consito, et intrasset convivii locum, reperit Aman super lectulum corruisse, in quo jacebat Esther, et ait : Etiam reginam vult opprimere, me præsente, in domo mea. Necdum verbum de ore regis exierat, et statim operuerunt faciem ejus.
  9. Dixitque Harbona, unus de eunuchis, qui stabant in ministerio regis : En lignum, quod paraverat Mardochæo, qui locutus est pro rege, stat in domo Aman, habens altitudinis quinquaginta cubitos. Cui dixit rex : Appendite eum in eo.
  10. Suspensus est itaque Aman in patibulo quod paraverat Mardochæo : et regis ira quievit.
Esther 7 Text (KJV)
  1. So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.
  2. And the king said again unto 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.
  3. Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy 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 bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage.
  5. Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst 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 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.
  8. Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon 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.
  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 thereon.
  10. So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.
