Esth 6:6–9

6:6–9 The identity of the one to be honored is concealed (cf. Haman’s intentional veiling of the identity of the people to be destroyed, 3:8). Assuming that he himself was the man to be honored, Haman unveiled his personal dream list, which focused not on material gain or position, but rather on public acclaim and adulation (cf. Gen. 41:42, 43).
