Esther Chapter 6

Esther 6:3
6:3 And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to
    Mordecai {a} for this? Then said the king's servants that
    ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.

    (a) For he thought it unworthy of his estate to receive a
        benefit and not reward it.

Esther 6:4
6:4 And the king said, Who [is] in the court? Now Haman was come
    into the outward court of the king's house, to speak unto
    the king to {b} hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had
    prepared for him.

    (b) Thus while the wicked imagine the destruction of others,
        they themselves fall into the same pit.

Esther 6:8
6:8 Let the royal apparel be brought which the king [useth] to
    wear, and the {c} horse that the king rideth upon, and the
    crown royal which is set upon his head:

    (c) Meaning by this that the king should make him next to
        himself as Joseph was known to be next to Pharaoh in
        Genesis 41:43.

Esther 6:13
6:13 And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every
     [thing] that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and
     Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai [be] of the seed of
     the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt
     not prevail against him, {d} but shalt surely fall before
     him.

     (d) Thus God sometimes puts in the mouth of the very wicked
         to speak that thing which he has decreed shall come to
         pass.
