Esther 7 (WEBP)

[1] So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.
[2] The king said again to Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, “What is your petition, queen Esther? It shall be granted you. What is your request? Even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed.”
[3] Then Esther the queen answered, “If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it pleases the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request.
[4] For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for male and female slaves, I would have held my peace, although the adversary could not have compensated for the king’s loss.”
[5] Then King Ahasuerus said to Esther the queen, “Who is he, and where is he who dared presume in his heart to do so?”
[6] Esther said, “An adversary and an enemy, even this wicked Haman!” Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.
[7] The king arose in his wrath from the banquet of wine and went into the palace garden. Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen, for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.
[8] Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman had fallen on the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, “Will he even assault the queen in front of me in the house?” As the word went out of the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face.
[9] Then Harbonah, one of the eunuchs who were with the king, said, “Behold, the gallows fifty cubits° high, which Haman has made for Mordecai, who spoke good for the king, is standing at Haman’s house.” The king said, “Hang him on it!”
[10] So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath was pacified.

Esther 7:9 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 7 (KJVS)

[1] So the king H4428 and Haman H2001 came H935 (8799) to banquet H8354 (8800) with Esther H635 the queen H4436.
[2] And the king H4428 said H559 (8799) again unto Esther H635 on the second H8145 day H3117 at the banquet H4960 of wine H3196, What [is] thy petition H7596, queen H4436 Esther H635? and it shall be granted H5414 (8735) thee: and what [is] thy request H1246? and it shall be performed H6213 (8735), [even] to the half H2677 of the kingdom H4438.
[3] Then Esther H635 the queen H4436 answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799), If I have found H4672 (8804) favour H2580 in thy sight H5869, O king H4428, and if it please H2895 (8804) the king H4428, let my life H5315 be given H5414 (8735) me at my petition H7596, and my people H5971 at my request H1246:
[4] For we are sold H4376 (8738), I and my people H5971, to be destroyed H8045 (8687), to be slain H2026 (8800), and to perish H6 (8763). But if H432 we had been sold H4376 (8738) for bondmen H5650 and bondwomen H8198, I had held my tongue H2790 (8689), although the enemy H6862 could not countervail H7737 (8802) the king’s H4428 damage H5143.
[5] Then the king H4428 Ahasuerus H325 answered H559 (8799) and said H559 (8799) unto Esther H635 the queen H4436, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume H4390 (8804) in his heart H3820 to do H6213 (8800) so?
[6] And Esther H635 said H559 (8799), The adversary H376 H6862 and enemy H341 (8802) [is] this wicked H7451 Haman H2001. Then Haman H2001 was afraid H1204 (8738) before H6440 the king H4428 and the queen H4436.
[7] And the king H4428 arising H6965 (8804) from the banquet H4960 of wine H3196 in his wrath H2534 [went] into the palace H1055 garden H1594: and Haman H2001 stood up H5975 (8804) to make request H1245 (8763) for his life H5315 to Esther H635 the queen H4436; for he saw H7200 (8804) that there was evil H7451 determined H3615 (8804) against him by the king H4428.
[8] Then the king H4428 returned H7725 (8804) out of the palace H1055 garden H1594 into the place H1004 of the banquet H4960 of wine H3196; and Haman H2001 was fallen H5307 (8802) upon the bed H4296 whereon Esther H635 [was]. Then said H559 (8799) the king H4428, Will he force H3533 (8800) the queen H4436 also before me in the house H1004? As the word H1697 went out H3318 (8804) of the king’s H4428 mouth H6310, they covered H2645 (8804) Haman’s H2001 face H6440.
[9] And Harbonah H2726, one H259 of the chamberlains H5631, said H559 (8799) before H6440 the king H4428, Behold also, the gallows H6086 fifty H2572 cubits H520 high H1364, which Haman H2001 had made H6213 (8804) for Mordecai H4782, who had spoken H1696 (8765) good H2896 for the king H4428, standeth H5975 (8802) in the house H1004 of Haman H2001. Then the king H4428 said H559 (8799), Hang H8518 (8798) him thereon.
[10] So they hanged H8518 (8799) Haman H2001 on the gallows H6086 that he had prepared H3559 (8689) for Mordecai H4782. Then was the king’s H4428 wrath H2534 pacified H7918 (8804).

Young’s Literal Translation

Esther 7 (YLT)

[1] And the king cometh in, and Haman, to drink with Esther the queen,
[2] and the king saith to Esther also on the second day, during the banquet of wine, ‘What is thy petition, Esther, O queen? and it is given to thee; and what thy request? unto the half of the kingdom-and it is done.’
[3] And Esther the queen answereth and saith, ‘If I have found grace in thine eyes, O king, and if to the king it be good, let my life be given to me at my petition, and my people at my request;
[4] for we have been sold, I and my people, to cut off, to slay, and to destroy; and if for men-servants and for maid-servants we had been sold I had kept silent-but the adversity is not equal to the loss of the king.’
[5] And the king Ahasuerus saith, yea, he saith to Esther the queen, ‘Who is he-this one? and where is this one?-he whose heart hath filled him to do so?’
[6] And Esther saith, ‘The man-adversary and enemy-is this wicked Haman;’ and Haman hath been afraid at the presence of the king and of the queen.
[7] And the king hath risen, in his fury, from the banquet of wine, unto the garden of the house, and Haman hath remained to seek for his life from Esther the queen, for he hath seen that evil hath been determined against him by the king.
[8] And the king hath turned back out of the garden of the house unto the house of the banquet of wine, and Haman is falling on the couch on which Esther is, and the king saith, ‘Also to subdue the queen with me in the house?’ the word hath gone out from the mouth of the king, and the face of Haman they have covered.
[9] And Harbonah, one of the eunuchs, saith before the king, ‘Also lo, the tree that Haman made for Mordecai, who spake good for the king, is standing in the house of Haman, in height fifty cubits;’ and the king saith, ‘Hang him upon it.’
[10] And they hang Haman upon the tree that he had prepared for Mordecai, and the fury of the king hath lain down.
