Ahasuerus Rewards Mordecai
(Esther 6:10, 11)

“ ‘Hurry up!’ said the king to Haman, ‘and take the robe and the horse, and do exactly as you have advised to Mordecai the Jew who sits at the King’s Gate. Do not omit a single detail that you have suggested!’ “So Haman took the robe and the horse; and he robed Mordecai, and led Mordecai through the city square, proclaiming before him, ‘This is what is done for the man whom the king especially wants to honor.’ ”
