So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.
So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai,.... Not within his house, Esther 7:9, but more probably in his courtyard, in the sight of his family and friends; or, it may be, the gallows was taken from thence, and set up without the city, where he was hanged: for so it is said in the additions of the book of Esther,
"For he that was the worker of these things, is hanged at the gates of Susa with all his family: God, who ruleth all things, speedily rendering vengeance to him according to his deserts.'' (Esther 16:18)
that he was hanged without the gates of Shushan; see Psalms 7:15,
Then was the king's wrath pacified; having inflicted punishment on such a wicked counsellor of his, and the contriver of such mischief.
