Esther 5 (WEBP)
 Now on the third day, Esther put on her royal clothing and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, next to the king’s house. The king sat on his royal throne in the royal house, next to the entrance of the house.
 When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So Esther came near and touched the top of the scepter.
 Then the king asked her, “What would you like, queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given you even to the half of the kingdom.”
 Esther said, “If it seems good to the king, let the king and Haman come today to the banquet that I have prepared for him.”
 Then the king said, “Bring Haman quickly, so that it may be done as Esther has said.” So the king and Haman came to the banquet that Esther had prepared.
 The king said to Esther at the banquet of wine, “What is your petition? It shall be granted you. What is your request? Even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed.”
 Then Esther answered and said, “My petition and my request is this.
 If I have found favor in the sight of the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my petition and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I will prepare for them, and I will do tomorrow as the king has said.”
 Then Haman went out that day joyful and glad of heart, but when Haman saw Mordecai in the king’s gate, that he didn’t stand up nor move for him, he was filled with wrath against Mordecai.
 Nevertheless Haman restrained himself, and went home. There, he sent and called for his friends and Zeresh his wife.
 Haman recounted to them the glory of his riches, the multitude of his children, all the things in which the king had promoted him, and how he had advanced him above the princes and servants of the king.
 Haman also said, “Yes, Esther the queen let no man come in with the king to the banquet that she had prepared but myself; and tomorrow I am also invited by her together with the king.
 Yet all this avails me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate.”
 Then Zeresh his wife and all his friends said to him, “Let a gallows be made fifty cubits° high, and in the morning speak to the king about hanging Mordecai on it. Then go in merrily with the king to the banquet.” This pleased Haman, so he had the gallows made.
Esther 5:14 A cubit is the length from the tip of the middle finger to the elbow on a man’s arm, or about 18 inches or 46 centimeters.

Esther 5 (KJVS)
 Now it came to pass on the third H7992 day H3117, that Esther H635 put on H3847 (8799) [her] royal H4438 [apparel], and stood H5975 (8799) 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 (8802) upon his royal H4438 throne H3678 in the royal H4438 house H1004, over against H5227 the gate H6607 of the house H1004.
 And it was so, when the king H4428 saw H7200 (8800) Esther H635 the queen H4436 standing H5975 (8802) in the court H2691, [that] she obtained H5375 (8804) favour H2580 in his sight H5869: and the king H4428 held out H3447 (8686) to Esther H635 the golden H2091 sceptre H8275 that [was] in his hand H3027. So Esther H635 drew near H7126 (8799), and touched H5060 (8799) the top H7218 of the sceptre H8275.
 Then said H559 (8799) the king H4428 unto her, What wilt thou, queen H4436 Esther H635? and what [is] thy request H1246? it shall be even given H5414 (8735) thee to the half H2677 of the kingdom H4438.
 And Esther H635 answered H559 (8799), If [it seem] good H2895 (8804) unto the king H4428, let the king H4428 and Haman H2001 come H935 (8799) this day H3117 unto the banquet H4960 that I have prepared H6213 (8804) for him.
 Then the king H4428 said H559 (8799), Cause Haman H2001 to make haste H4116 (8761), that he may do H6213 (8800) as Esther H635 hath said H1697. So the king H4428 and Haman H2001 came H935 (8799) to the banquet H4960 that Esther H635 had prepared H6213 (8804).
 And the king H4428 said H559 (8799) unto Esther H635 at the banquet H4960 of wine H3196, What [is] thy petition H7596? and it shall be granted H5414 (8735) thee: and what [is] thy request H1246? even to the half H2677 of the kingdom H4438 it shall be performed H6213 (8735).
 Then answered H6030 (8799) Esther H635, and said H559 (8799), My petition H7596 and my request H1246 [is];
 If I have found H4672 (8804) favour H2580 in the sight H5869 of the king H4428, and if it please H2895 (8804) the king H4428 to grant H5414 (8800) my petition H7596, and to perform H6213 (8800) my request H1246, let the king H4428 and Haman H2001 come H935 (8799) to the banquet H4960 that I shall prepare H6213 (8799) for them, and I will do H6213 (8799) to morrow H4279 as the king H4428 hath said H1697.
 Then went H3318 Haman H2001 forth H3318 (8799) that day H3117 joyful H8056 and with a glad H2896 heart H3820: but when Haman H2001 saw H7200 (8800) Mordecai H4782 in the king’s H4428 gate H8179, that he stood not up H6965 (8804), nor moved H2111 (8804) for him, he H2001 was full H4390 (8735) of indignation H2534 against Mordecai H4782.
 Nevertheless Haman H2001 refrained H662 (8691) himself: and when he came H935 (8799) home H1004, he sent H7971 (8799) and called H935 (8686) for his friends H157 (8802), and Zeresh H2238 his wife H802.
 And Haman H2001 told H5608 (8762) 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 (8765) him, and how he had advanced H5375 (8765) him above the princes H8269 and servants H5650 of the king H4428.
 Haman H2001 said H559 (8799) moreover, Yea, Esther H635 the queen H4436 did let no man come in H935 (8689) with the king H4428 unto the banquet H4960 that she had prepared H6213 (8804) but myself; and to morrow H4279 am I invited H7121 (8803) unto her also with the king H4428.
 Yet all this availeth H7737 (8802) me nothing, so long as H6256 I see H7200 (8802) Mordecai H4782 the Jew H3064 sitting H3427 (8802) at the king’s H4428 gate H8179.
 Then said H559 (8799) Zeresh H2238 his wife H802 and all his friends H157 (8802) unto him, Let a gallows H6086 be made H6213 (8799) of fifty H2572 cubits H520 high H1364, and to morrow H1242 speak H559 (8798) thou unto the king H4428 that Mordecai H4782 may be hanged H8518 (8799) thereon: then go H935 (8798) thou in merrily H8056 with the king H4428 unto the banquet H4960. And the thing H1697 pleased H3190 (8799) H6440 Haman H2001; and he caused H6213 the gallows H6086 to be made H6213 (8799).
Young’s Literal Translation
Esther 5 (YLT)
 And it cometh to pass on the third day, that Esther putteth on royalty, and standeth in the inner-court of the house of the king over-against the house of the king, and the king is sitting on his royal throne, in the royal-house, over-against the opening of the house,
 and it cometh to pass, at the king’s seeing Esther the queen standing in the court, she hath received grace in his eyes, and the king holdeth out to Esther the golden sceptre that is in his hand, and Esther draweth near, and toucheth the top of the sceptre.
 And the king saith to her, ‘What-to thee Esther, O queen? and what thy request? unto the half of the kingdom-and it is given to thee.’
 And Esther saith, ‘If unto the king it be good, the king doth come in, and Haman, to-day, unto the banquet that I have made for him;’
 and the king saith, ‘Haste ye Haman-to do the word of Esther;’ and the king cometh in, and Haman, unto the banquet that Esther hath made.
 And the king saith to Esther, during the banquet of wine, ‘What is thy petition? and it is given to thee; and what thy request? unto the half of the kingdom-and it is done.’
 And Esther answereth and saith, ‘My petition and my request is:
 if I have found grace in the eyes of the king, and if unto the king it be good, to give my petition, and to perform my request, the king doth come, and Haman, unto the banquet that I make for them, and to-morrow I do according to the word of the king.’
 And Haman goeth forth on that day rejoicing and glad in heart, and at Haman’s seeing Mordecai in the gate of the king, and he hath not risen nor moved for him, then is Haman full of fury against Mordecai.
 And Haman forceth himself, and cometh in unto his house, and sendeth, and bringeth in his friends, and Zeresh his wife,
 and Haman recounteth to them the glory of his wealth, and the abundance of his sons, and all that with which the king made him great, and with which he lifted him up above the heads and servants of the king.
 And Haman saith, ‘Yea, Esther the queen brought none in with the king, unto the feast that she made, except myself, and also for to-morrow I am called to her, with the king,
 and all this is not profitable to me, during all the time that I am seeing Mordecai the Jew sitting in the gate of the king.’
 And Zeresh his wife saith to him, and all his friends, ‘Let them prepare a tree, in height fifty cubits, and in the morning speak to the king, and they hang Mordecai on it, and go thou in with the king unto the banquet rejoicing;’ and the thing is good before Haman, and he prepareth the tree.
