Esther 7:8

Context
NETBible

When the king returned from the palace garden to the banquet of wine, Haman was throwing himself down 1  on the couch where Esther was lying. 2  The king exclaimed, “Will he also attempt to rape the queen while I am still in the building!” As these words left the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face.
