CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
6:6 Man - He names none, because he would have the more impartial answer. And probably knew nothing of the difference between Haman and Mordecai. Thought - As he had great reason to do, because of the favour which the king had shewed to him above all others.
So the attendants replied to the king, "Haman is out in the court." "Bring him in," the king ordered.
So he replied, "If the king wishes to honor someone,
Let the robes and the horse be handed over to one of the king's most noble officials. And let him see that the man whom the king wishes to honor is dressed in the king's robes and led through the city square on the king's horse. Have the official shout as they go, 'This is what the king does for someone he wishes to honor!'"
