Esther Chapter 5
1Esther, venturing to appear uncalled before the king in the inner court, is graciously received, and promised the grant of her request: she inviteth the king and Haman to a banquet. 6Being encouraged by the king to name her suit, she inviteth him and Haman to another banquet the next day. 9Haman, though proud of the distinctions shewn him, repineth at and complaineth to his friends of Mordecai's neglect. 14By the advice of his wife and friends he prepareth for him a gallows.
