And what is your wish? Up to half of the kingdom it shall be done.' 7 So Esther replied, 'My request and my wish is: 8 if I have found favor in the sight of the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my request and do what I wish, may the king and Haman come to the banquet which I will prepare for them, and tomorrow I will do as the king says.'
