Esther 5

KJV King James Version 1611/1769

Esther, adventuring on the king's favour, obtaineth the grace of the golden sceptre, and inviteth the king and Haman to a banquet. She, being encouraged by the king in her suit, inviteth them to another banquet the next day. Haman, proud of his advancement, repineth at the contempt of Mordecai. By the counsel of Zeresh he buildeth for him a pair of gallows.
