5:1 Now it came to pass on the third [H7992] day [H3117] , that Esther [H635] put on [H3847] [her] royal [H4438] [apparel], and stood [H5975] in the inner [H6442] court [H2691] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , over against [H5227] the king's [H4428] house [H1004] : and the king [H4428] sat [H3427] upon his royal [H4438] throne [H3678] in the royal [H4438] house [H1004] , over against [H5227] the gate [H6607] of the house [H1004] .

5:2 And it was so, when the king [H4428] saw [H7200] Esther [H635] the queen [H4436] standing [H5975] in the court [H2691] , [that] she obtained [H5375] favour [H2580] in his sight [H5869] : and the king [H4428] held out [H3447] to Esther [H635] the golden [H2091] sceptre [H8275] that [was] in his hand [H3027] . So Esther [H635] drew near [H7126] , and touched [H5060] the top [H7218] of the sceptre [H8275] .

5:3 Then said [H559] the king [H4428] unto her, What wilt thou, queen [H4436] Esther [H635] ? and what [is] thy request [H1246] ? it shall be even given [H5414] thee to the half [H2677] of the kingdom [H4438] .

5:4 And Esther [H635] answered [H559] , If [it seem] good [H2895] unto the king [H4428] , let the king [H4428] and Haman [H2001] come [H935] this day [H3117] unto the banquet [H4960] that I have prepared [H6213] for him.

5:5 Then the king [H4428] said [H559] , Cause Haman [H2001] to make haste [H4116] , that he may do [H6213] as Esther [H635] hath said [H1697] . So the king [H4428] and Haman [H2001] came [H935] to the banquet [H4960] that Esther [H635] had prepared [H6213] .

5:6 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto Esther [H635] at the banquet [H4960] of wine [H3196] , What [is] thy petition [H7596] ? and it shall be granted [H5414] thee: and what [is] thy request [H1246] ? even to the half [H2677] of the kingdom [H4438] it shall be performed [H6213] .

5:7 Then answered [H6030] Esther [H635] , and said [H559] , My petition [H7596] and my request [H1246] [is];

5:8 If I have found [H4672] favour [H2580] in the sight [H5869] of the king [H4428] , and if it please [H2895] the king [H4428] to grant [H5414] my petition [H7596] , and to perform [H6213] my request [H1246] , let the king [H4428] and Haman [H2001] come [H935] to the banquet [H4960] that I shall prepare [H6213] for them, and I will do [H6213] to morrow [H4279] as the king [H4428] hath said [H1697] .(perform: Heb. do)

5:9 Then went [H3318] Haman [H2001] forth [H3318] that day [H3117] joyful [H8056] and with a glad [H2896] heart [H3820] : but when Haman [H2001] saw [H7200] Mordecai [H4782] in the king's [H4428] gate [H8179] , that he stood not up [H6965] , nor moved [H2111] for him, he [H2001] was full [H4390] of indignation [H2534] against Mordecai [H4782] .

5:10 Nevertheless Haman [H2001] refrained [H662] himself: and when he came [H935] home [H1004] , he sent [H7971] and called [H935] for his friends [H157] , and Zeresh [H2238] his wife [H802] .(called: Heb. caused to come)

5:11 And Haman [H2001] told [H5608] them of the glory [H3519] of his riches [H6239] , and the multitude [H7230] of his children [H1121] , and all [the things] wherein the king [H4428] had promoted [H1431] him, and how he had advanced [H5375] him above the princes [H8269] and servants [H5650] of the king [H4428] .

5:12 Haman [H2001] said [H559] moreover, Yea, Esther [H635] the queen [H4436] did let no man come in [H935] with the king [H4428] unto the banquet [H4960] that she had prepared [H6213] but myself; and to morrow [H4279] am I invited [H7121] unto her also with the king [H4428] .

5:13 Yet all this availeth [H7737] me nothing, so long as [H6256] I see [H7200] Mordecai [H4782] the Jew [H3064] sitting [H3427] at the king's [H4428] gate [H8179] .

5:14 Then said [H559] Zeresh [H2238] his wife [H802] and all his friends [H157] unto him, Let a gallows [H6086] be made [H6213] of fifty [H2572] cubits [H520] high [H1364] , and to morrow [H1242] speak [H559] thou unto the king [H4428] that Mordecai [H4782] may be hanged [H8518] thereon: then go [H935] thou in merrily [H8056] with the king [H4428] unto the banquet [H4960] . And the thing [H1697] pleased [H3190] [H6440] Haman [H2001] ; and he caused [H6213] the gallows [H6086] to be made [H6213] .(gallows: Heb. tree)
