Esther 6


6:1 In that night the king could not sleep, and he commanded to
 bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read
 before the king.
6:2 And it was found written, that Mordecai had informed of
 Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's chamberlains, the
 keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king
 Ahasuerus.
6:3 And the king said, What honor and dignity hath been done to
 Mordecai for this? Then said the king's servants that
 ministered to him, There is nothing done for him.
6:4 And the king said, Who [is] in the court? Now Haman had come
 into the outward court of the king's house, to speak to the
 king to hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for
 him.
6:5 And the king's servants said to him, Behold, Haman standeth
 in the court. And the king said, Let him come in.
6:6 So Haman came in. And the king said to him, What shall be
 done to the man whom the king delighteth to honor? Now Haman
 thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do
 honor more than to myself?
6:7 And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king
 delighteth to honor,
6:8 Let the royal apparel be brought which the king [useth] to
 wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown
 royal which is set upon his head:
6:9 And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of
 one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the
 man whom the king delighteth to honor, and bring him on
 horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before
 him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth
 to honor.
6:10 Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, [and] take the
 apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to
 Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king's gate: let nothing
 fail of all that thou hast spoken.
6:11 Then Haman took the apparel and the horse, and arrayed
 Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of
 the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done to
 the man whom the king delighteth to honor.
6:12 And Mordecai came again to the king's gate. But Haman
 hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.
6:13 And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every
 [thing] that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and
 Zeresh his wife to him, If Mordecai [is] of the seed of the
 Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou wilt not
 prevail against him, but wilt surely fall before him.
6:14 And while they [were] yet talking with him, came the king's
 chamberlains, and hasted to bring Haman to the banquet that
 Esther had prepared.
