Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs attending the king, said, “A pole reaching to a height of fifty cubitsa stands by Haman’s house. He had it set up for Mordecai, who spoke up to help the king.” The king said, “Impale him on it!”
And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.
Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs in attendance on the king, said, "Moreover, the gallows that Haman has prepared for Mordecai, whose word saved the king, is standing at Haman's house, fifty cubits high."

was accused to the king, or condemned, or had a grant for his
execution, and for a man that had well deserved of the king for
discovering a conspiracy against him, and whom now the king had
delighted to honour:
then the king said, hang him thereon;
immediately, being ready prepared, the king's word was enough,
being a sovereign and tyrannical prince.
