Esther 2:21; Esther 3:2–3; Esther 5:9; Esther 5:13; Esther 6:10; Esther 6:12

21 In those days, as Mordecai was sitting at the king's gate, mBigthan and nTeresh, two of the king's eunuchs, who guarded the threshold, became angry and sought to lay hands on King Ahasuerus.


And all the king's servants who were at the king's gate bowed down and paid homage to Haman, for the king had so commanded concerning him. tBut Mordecai did not bow down or pay homage. Then the king's servants who were uat the king's gate said to Mordecai, Why do you transgress vthe king's command?


Haman Plans to Hang Mordecai

And Haman went out that day hjoyful and glad of heart. But when Haman saw Mordecai iin the king's gate, jthat he neither rose nor trembled before him, he was filled with wrath against Mordecai.


13 Yet all this is worth nothing to me, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting iat the king's gate.


10 Then the king said to Haman, Hurry; take the robes and the horse, as you have said, and do so to Mordecai the Jew, who sits yat the king's gate. Leave out nothing that you have mentioned.


12 Then Mordecai returned to the king's gate. But Haman hurried to his house, mourning zand with his head covered.
