Chapter 7 - Esther

1 So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.1 Sa gayo'y naparoon ang hari at si Aman sa pigingan na kasama ni Esther na reina.
2 And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom.2 At sinabi uli ng hari kay Esther nang ikalawang araw sa pigingan ng alak: Ano ang iyong hingi, reina Esther? at ibibigay sa iyo: at ano ang iyong hiling? kahit kalahati ng kaharian ay ipagkakaloob.
3 Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request:3 Nang magkagayo'y sumagot, at nagsabi si Esther na reina, Kung ako'y nakasumpong ng biyaya sa iyong paningin, Oh hari, at kung kalulugdan ng hari, ipagkaloob sa akin ang aking buhay sa aking hingi at ang aking bayan sa aking hiling:
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.4 Sapagka't kami ay naipagbili, ako at ang aking bayan upang ipahamak, upang patayin, at upang lipulin. Nguni't kung kami ay naipagbili na mga pinakaaliping lalake at babae, ako'y tumahimik, bagaman hindi mababayaran ng kaaway ang bagabag sa hari.
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?5 Nang magkagayo'y nagsalita ang haring Assuero, at nagsabi kay Esther na reina: Sino siya, at saan nandoon siya, na nangangahas magbanta na gumawa ng gayon?
6 And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.6 At sinabi ni Esther, Ang isang kaaway at kaalit: itong masamang si Aman. Nang magkagayo'y natakot si Aman sa harap ng hari at ng reina.
7 And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden: and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.7 At ang hari ay tumindig sa pigingan ng alak sa kaniyang pagkapoot, at pumasok sa halamanan ng bahay-hari: at si Aman ay tumayo upang ipamanhik ang kaniyang buhay kay Esther na reina; sapagka't nakita niya na may kasamaang ipinasiya laban sa kaniya ang hari.
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.8 Nang magkagayo'y bumalik ang hari na mula sa halamanan ng bahay-hari hanggang sa pigingan ng alak; at si Aman ay sumubsob sa hiligan na kinaroroonan ni Esther. Nang magkagayo'y sinabi ng hari, Kaniya bang dadahasin ang reina sa harap ko sa bahay? Pagkabigkas ng salita sa bibig ng hari ay kanilang tinakpan ang mukha ni Aman.
9 And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.9 Nang magkagayo'y sinabi ni Harbona, na isa sa kamarero na nasa harap ng hari: Narito naman, ang bibitayan na may limang pung siko ang taas, na ginawa ni Aman ukol kay Mardocheo, na siyang nagsalita sa ikabubuti ng hari, ay nakatayo sa bahay ni Aman. At sinabi ng hari, Bitayin siya roon.
10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.10 Sa gayo'y binitay nila si Aman sa bibitayan na inihanda niya ukol kay Mardocheo. Nang magkagayo'y napayapa ang kapootan ng hari.
