Esther 7:4-6

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 7

4 for we have been sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, killed, and eliminated. Now if we had only been sold as slaves, men and women, I would have kept silent, because the distress would not be sufficient reason to burden the king.' 5 Then King Ahasuerus asked Queen Esther, 'Who is he, and where is he, who would presume to do such a thing?' 6 And Esther said, 'A foe and an enemy is this wicked Haman!' Then Haman became terrified before the king and queen.

4 For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage. 5 Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so? 6 And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.

4 For we have been sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be killed, and to be annihilated.

This wicked Haman!” Then Haman was terrified before the king and the queen.
