Esther’s Banquet

1 So the king and Haman went {to dine}a with Queen Esther. 2 And the king again said to Esther, on the second day {while they were drinking},b "What [is] your petition, Queen Esther? It will be given to you. What [is] your request? It will be given [to you]--even half the kingdom." 3 Then Queen Esther answered, and she said, "If I have found favor in your eyes,c O king, and if it is good to the king, let my life be given to me at my petition and my people at my request; 4 I and my people have been sold to be destroyed and killed, to be annihilated. If we had been sold as male and female slaves I would have kept quiet, because thisd is not a need sufficient to trouble the king."e 5 And King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther, "Who [is] he, and where [is] he, who {gave himself the right to do this}?"f 6 And Esther said, "The adversary and enemy [is] this evil Haman!" And Haman was terrified before the king and queen.
