And the king said, what honour and dignity hath been done to
Mordecai for this?
&c.] He judged it an action worthy of regard, and what ought to be rewarded, as it was the saving of his life; but had forgot whether any royal favour had been shown to the person for it:

the lords of his bedchamber then in waiting:
there is nothing done for him;
not on that account, nothing more than what he had; he had an office at court before, but was not advanced to anything higher on this account.
