And Esther spake yet again before the king
Went into his presence, without being called for as before, with a new petition:
and fell down at his feet, and besought him with
the more to work upon his affections, and move him to grant her request; which she might be the more encouraged to hope for, through the success she already had:
to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his
device that he
had devised against the Jews;
to revoke, abolish, and make void a mischievous scheme Haman had devised against the Jews, to root out the whole nation of them in the Persian empire.
