Esther 5:1-8

Now it came to pass on the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_,
that Esther
<0635>
put on
<03847> (8799)
[her] royal
<04438>
[apparel], and stood
<05975> (8799)
in the inner
<06442>
court
<02691>
of the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_,
over against
<05227>
the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_:
and the king
<04428>
sat
<03427> (8802)
upon his royal
<04438>
throne
<03678>
in the royal
<04438>
house
<01004>_,
over against
<05227>
the gate
<06607>
of the house
<01004>_.
And it was so, when the king
<04428>
saw
<07200> (8800)
Esther
<0635>
the queen
<04436>
standing
<05975> (8802)
in the court
<02691>_,
[that] she obtained
<05375> (8804)
favour
<02580>
in his sight
<05869>_:
and the king
<04428>
held out
<03447> (8686)
to Esther
<0635>
the golden
<02091>
sceptre
<08275>
that [was] in his hand
<03027>_.
So Esther
<0635>
drew near
<07126> (8799)_,
and touched
<05060> (8799)
the top
<07218>
of the sceptre
<08275>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the king
<04428>
unto her, What wilt thou, queen
<04436>
Esther
<0635>_?
and what [is] thy request
<01246>_?
it shall be even given
<05414> (8735)
thee to the half
<02677>
of the kingdom
<04438>_.
And Esther
<0635>
answered
<0559> (8799)_,
If [it seem] good
<02895> (8804)
unto the king
<04428>_,
let the king
<04428>
and Haman
<02001>
come
<0935> (8799)
this day
<03117>
unto the banquet
<04960>
that I have prepared
<06213> (8804)
for him.
Then the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Cause Haman
<02001>
to make haste
<04116> (8761)_,
that he may do
<06213> (8800)
as Esther
<0635>
hath said
<01697>_.
So the king
<04428>
and Haman
<02001>
came
<0935> (8799)
to the banquet
<04960>
that Esther
<0635>
had prepared
<06213> (8804)_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Esther
<0635>
at the banquet
<04960>
of wine
<03196>_,
What [is] thy petition
<07596>_?
and it shall be granted
<05414> (8735)
thee: and what [is] thy request
<01246>_?
even to the half
<02677>
of the kingdom
<04438>
it shall be performed
<06213> (8735)_.
Then answered
<06030> (8799)
Esther
<0635>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
My petition
<07596>
and my request
<01246>
[is];
If I have found
<04672> (8804)
favour
<02580>
in the sight
<05869>
of the king
<04428>_,
and if it please
<02895> (8804)
the king
<04428>
to grant
<05414> (8800)
my petition
<07596>_,
and to perform
<06213> (8800)
my request
<01246>_,
let the king
<04428>
and Haman
<02001>
come
<0935> (8799)
to the banquet
<04960>
that I shall prepare
<06213> (8799)
for them, and I will do
<06213> (8799)
to morrow
<04279>
as the king
<04428>
hath said
<01697>_.
{perform: Heb. do}
