    King James Bible - Esther 7:8

    Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.

    World English Bible

    Then the king returned out of the palace
    garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman had fallen on the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, "Will he even assault the queen in front of me in the house?" As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.

    Douay-Rheims - Esther 7:8

    And when the king came back out of the
    garden set with trees, and entered into the place of the banquet, he found Aman was fallen upon the bed on which Esther lay, and he said: He will force the queen also in my presence, in my own house. The word was not yet gone out of the king's mouth, and immediately they covered his face.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Then the king returned out of the palace-garden into the
    place of the banquet of wine; and Haman had fallen upon the bed on which Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.

    VERSE (8) -
    Es 1:6 Isa 49:23

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:8

    Y volvió el rey del huerto del palacio al aposento del banquete del vino, y Amán había caído sobre el lecho en que estaba Ester. Entonces dijo el rey: ¿También para forzar la reina, estando conmigo en casa? Cuando esta palabra salió de la boca del rey, el rostro de Amán fue cubierto.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Esther 7:8

    Verse 8. Will he force the
    queen] On the king's return he found him at the queen's knees; and, professing to think that he intended to do violence to her honour, used the above expressions; though he must have known that, in such circumstances, the thought of perpetrating an act of this kind could not possibly exist.

    They covered Haman's face.] This was a sign of his being devoted to death: for the attendants saw that the king was determined on his destruction. When a criminal was condemned by a Roman judge, he was delivered into the hands of the serjeant with these words: I, lictor; caput obnubito, arbori infelici suspendito. "Go, serjeant; cover his head, and hang him on the accursed tree."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine , etc.] Being a little cooler, and more composed in his mind, see (see Gill on “ Esther 1:5”) and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was ; not the bed she lay on to sleep in the night, (for it cannot be thought that it was a bedchamber in which the banquet was,) but on the bed or couch on which she sat or reclined at the banquet, as was the custom in the eastern countries; now, “by”, or “near” this, as the word may be rendered, Haman fell down, even at the feet of the queen, begging for mercy; and some think he might embrace her feet or knees, as was the custom of the Greeks and Romans as they were supplicating f160 ; and so it seems to have been with the Jews, (see 2 Kings 4:27), and being in this posture, it might appear the more indecent, and give the king an opportunity to say as follows: then said the king, will he force the queen also before me in the house? , that is, ravish her; not that he really thought so; it was not a time nor place for such an action; nor can it be thought that Haman, in such terror and confusion he was in, could be so disposed; and besides there were others present, as the next clause shows: but this he said, putting the worst construction on his actions, and plainly declaring his opinion of him, that he thought him a man capable of committing the vilest of crimes, and that his supplications were not to be regarded: as the word went out of the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face ; the servants present, as a man unworthy to see the light; and they took what the king said to amount to a sentence of condemnation, and that it was his will he should die; and they covered his face, as condemned malefactors used to be; which was a custom among the Greeks and Romans, of which many instances may be given f161 ; though Aben Ezra says it was the custom of the kings of Persia, that their servants covered the face of him the king was angry with, that he might not see his face any more, which was well known in the Persian writings.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-10 - The king was
    angry: those that do things with self-will, reflect upo them afterward with self-reproach. When angry, we should pause befor we come to any resolution, and thus rule our own spirits, and show tha we are governed by reason. Those that are most haughty and insolen when in power and prosperity, commonly, like Haman, are the most abjec and poor-spirited when brought down. The day is coming when those tha hate and persecute God's chosen ones, would gladly be beholden to them The king returns yet more angry against Haman. Those about him wer ready to put his wrath into execution. How little can proud men be sure of the interest they think they have! The enemies of God's church have often been thus taken in their own craftiness. The Lord is known by such judgments. Then was the king's wrath pacified, and not till then And who pities Haman hanged on his own gallows? who does not rathe rejoice in the Divine righteousness displayed in the destruction his own art brought upon him? Let the workers of iniquity tremble, turn to the Lord, and seek pardon through the blood of Jesus __________________________________________________________________
