Esther 6

On that night
<03915>
could not
<05074> (8804)
the king
<04428>
sleep
<08142>_,
and he commanded
<0559> (8799)
to bring
<0935> (8687)
the book
<05612>
of records
<02146>
of the chronicles
<01697> <03117>_;
and they were read
<07121> (8737)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
{could...: Heb. the king's sleep fled away}
And it was found
<04672> (8735)
written
<03789> (8803)_,
that Mordecai
<04782>
had told
<05046> (8689)
of Bigthana
<0904>
and Teresh
<08657>_,
two
<08147>
of the king's
<04428>
chamberlains
<05631>_,
the keepers
<08104> (8802)
of the door
<05592>_,
who sought
<01245> (8765)
to lay
<07971> (8800)
hand
<03027>
on the king
<04428>
Ahasuerus
<0325>_.
{Bigthana: also called, Bigthan} {door: Heb. threshold}
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
What honour
<03366>
and dignity
<01420>
hath been done
<06213> (8738)
to Mordecai
<04782>
for this? Then said
<0559> (8799)
the king's
<04428>
servants
<05288>
that ministered
<08334> (8764)
unto him, There is nothing
<01697>
done
<06213> (8738)
for him.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Who [is] in the court
<02691>_?
Now Haman
<02001>
was come
<0935> (8804)
into the outward
<02435>
court
<02691>
of the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_,
to speak
<0559> (8800)
unto the king
<04428>
to hang
<08518> (8800)
Mordecai
<04782>
on the gallows
<06086>
that he had prepared
<03559> (8689)
for him.
And the king's
<04428>
servants
<05288>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Behold, Haman
<02001>
standeth
<05975> (8802)
in the court
<02691>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let him come in
<0935> (8799)_.
So Haman
<02001>
came in
<0935> (8799)_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, What shall be done
<06213> (8800)
unto the man
<0376>
whom the king
<04428>
delighteth
<02654> (8804)
to honour
<03366>_?
Now Haman
<02001>
thought
<0559> (8799)
in his heart
<03820>_,
To whom would the king
<04428>
delight
<02654> (8799)
to do
<06213> (8800)
honour
<03366>
more
<03148>
than to myself? {whom the king...: Heb. in whose honour the king delighteth}
And Haman
<02001>
answered
<0559> (8799)
the king
<04428>_,
For the man
<0376>
whom the king
<04428>
delighteth
<02654> (8804)
to honour
<03366>_,
{whom the king...: Heb. in whose honour the king delighteth}
Let the royal
<04438>
apparel
<03830>
be brought
<0935> (8686)
which the king
<04428>
[useth] to wear
<03847> (8804)_,
and the horse
<05483>
that the king
<04428>
rideth
<07392> (8804)
upon, and the crown
<03804>
royal
<04438>
which is set
<05414> (8738)
upon his head
<07218>_:
{Let...: Heb. Let them bring the royal apparel} {which the king...: Heb. wherewith the king clotheth himself}
And let this apparel
<03830>
and horse
<05483>
be delivered
<05414> (8800)
to the hand
<03027>
of one
<0376>
of the king's
<04428>
most noble
<06579>
princes
<08269>_,
that they may array
<03847> (8689)
the man
<0376>
[withal] whom the king
<04428>
delighteth
<02654> (8804)
to honour
<03366>_,
and bring
<07392> (8689)
him on horseback
<05483>
through the street
<07339>
of the city
<05892>_,
and proclaim
<07121> (8804)
before
<06440>
him, Thus shall it be done
<06213> (8735)
to the man
<0376>
whom the king
<04428>
delighteth
<02654> (8804)
to honour
<03366>_.
{bring...: Heb. cause him to ride}
Then the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Haman
<02001>_,
Make haste
<04116> (8761)_,
[and] take
<03947> (8798)
the apparel
<03830>
and the horse
<05483>_,
as thou hast said
<01696> (8765)_,
and do
<06213> (8798)
even so to Mordecai
<04782>
the Jew
<03064>_,
that sitteth
<03427> (8802)
at the king's
<04428>
gate
<08179>_:
let nothing
<01697>
fail
<05307> (8686)
of all that thou hast spoken
<01696> (8765)_.
{let...: Heb. suffer not a whit to fall}
Then took
<03947> (8799)
Haman
<02001>
the apparel
<03830>
and the horse
<05483>_,
and arrayed
<03847> (8686)
Mordecai
<04782>_,
and brought him on horseback
<07392> (8686)
through the street
<07339>
of the city
<05892>_,
and proclaimed
<07121> (8799)
before
<06440>
him, Thus shall it be done
<06213> (8735)
unto the man
<0376>
whom the king
<04428>
delighteth
<02654> (8804)
to honour
<03366>_.
And Mordecai
<04782>
came again
<07725> (8799)
to the king's
<04428>
gate
<08179>_.
But Haman
<02001>
hasted
<01765> (8738)
to his house
<01004>
mourning
<057>_,
and having his head
<07218>
covered
<02645> (8802)_.
And Haman
<02001>
told
<05608> (8762)
Zeresh
<02238>
his wife
<0802>
and all his friends
<0157> (8802)
every [thing] that had befallen
<07136> (8804)
him. Then said
<0559> (8799)
his wise men
<02450>
and Zeresh
<02238>
his wife
<0802>
unto him, If Mordecai
<04782>
[be] of the seed
<02233>
of the Jews
<03064>_,
before
<06440>
whom thou hast begun
<02490> (8689)
to fall
<05307> (8800)_,
thou shalt not prevail
<03201> (8799)
against him, but shalt surely
<05307> (8800)
fall
<05307> (8799)
before
<06440>
him.
And while they [were] yet talking
<01696> (8764)
with him, came
<05060> (8689)
the king's
<04428>
chamberlains
<05631>_,
and hasted
<0926> (8686)
to bring
<0935> (8687)
Haman
<02001>
unto the banquet
<04960>
that Esther
<0635>
had prepared
<06213> (8804)_.
