Esther, being solicited by the king to tell him her petition, asks
for her life and the lives of her people, who were sold to be
destroyed, \\#Es 7:1-4\\, the king, amazed at her request, inquires
who was the person that dared to do so vile a thing; and was told by
her it was Haman there present, \\#Es 7:5,6\\ on which the king went
out into the garden in wrath, and, returning, found Haman on Esther's
bed, which still more incensed him; and being told that Haman had
prepared a gallows for Mordecai, the king ordered that he himself
should be hanged upon it, which was done accordingly, \\#Es 7:7-10\\.
