What does Esther 5:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Esther 5:11

And Haman told them of the glory of his riches
Of the multitude of them; which he did partly in a way of ostentation, and partly, if he could, to make his mind easy under the mortification he received from Mordecai; and, it may be, chiefly to aggravate his rudeness and ill behaviour towards him, a man of so much wealth: and the multitude of his children; he had ten, as we learn from ( Esther 9:10 ) , but the former Targum enlarges them, beyond credit, to the number of two hundred and eight, besides his ten sons, and Shimshai the scribe; such were had in great esteem with the Persians who had many children; to such the king used to send gifts annually F11:

and all the things wherein the king had promoted him;
the high offices of honour and trust he had put him into:

and how he had advanced him above the princes and servants of the king.
See ( Esther 3:1 ) .
