1 The king and Haman went to Queen Esther's banquet,
Esth 5:8 Esth 3:15
2 and this second day, during the banquet, the king again said to Esther, 'Tell me your request, Queen Esther. I grant it to you. Whatever you want; even if it is half my kingdom, it is yours for the asking.'
Esth 5:6 John 16:24 Esth 5:3 Esth 9:12
3 'If I have found favour in your eyes, O king,' Queen Esther replied, 'and if it please your majesty, grant me my life -- that is my request; and the lives of my people -- that is what I want.

4 For we have been handed over, my people and I, to destruction, slaughter and annihilation; had we merely been sold as slaves and servant-girls, I should not have said anything; but in the present case, it will be beyond the persecutor's means to make good the loss that the king is about to sustain.'

5 King Ahasuerus interrupted Queen Esther, 'Who is this man?' he exclaimed. 'Where is the man who has thought of doing such a thing?'
Acts 5:3 Gen 27:33 Job 9:24
6 Esther replied, 'The persecutor, the enemy? Why, this wretch Haman!' Haman quaked with terror in the presence of the king and queen.

7 In a rage the king got up from the banquet and went into the palace garden; while Haman, realising that the king was determined on his ruin, stayed behind to beg Queen Esther for his life.
Esth 1:12 Prov 19:12 1Sam 20:7 1Sam 20:9 1Sam 25:17 Dan 3:19 Esth 1:5
8 When the king came back from the palace garden into the banqueting hall, he found Haman sprawled across the couch where Esther was reclining. 'What!' the king exclaimed. 'Is he going to rape the queen in my own palace?' The words were scarcely out of his mouth than a veil was thrown over Haman's face.
Esth 1:6 Esth 6:12 Isa 22:17 Isa 49:23 Job 9:24
9 In the royal presence, Harbona, one of the officers, said, 'There is that fifty-cubit gallows, too, which Haman ran up for Mordecai, who spoke up to the king's great advantage. It is all ready at his house.' 'Hang him on it,' said the king.
Ps 7:15-16 Prov 11:5-6 Esth 5:14 Esth 1:10 Ps 35:8 Ps 141:10 1Sam 17:51
10 So Haman was hanged on the gallows which he had erected for Mordecai, and the king's wrath subsided.
