NET © Notes

tn Heb “after these things” (so KJV, ASV); NAB, NASB, NIV “After these events.”

tn Heb “made great”; NAB “raised…to high rank”; NIV “honored.”

sn The promotion of Haman in 3:1 for reasons unexplained contrasts noticeably with 2:19-23, where Mordecai’s contribution to saving the king’s life goes unnoticed. The irony is striking.

tn Heb “chair”; KJV, NRSV “seat”; NASB “established his authority.”
