What does Esther 8:1 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Esther 8:1

On that day did the King, Ahasuerus, give the house of
Haman, the Jews' enemy, unto Esther the queen
That, and all the goods in it, and estate belonging to it; which being confiscated to the king, he gave to Esther, who would have been the sufferer, had his scheme taken place; so the Targum adds,

``and the men of his house, and all his treasures, and all his riches:''

and Mordecai came before the king;
was introduced into his presence, became one of his privy counsellors, one of those that saw the king's face, and sat first in the kingdom, ( Esther 1:14 )

for Esther had told what he was unto her;
what relation he stood in to her; her uncle, according to the Vulgate Latin version, and so Aben Ezra and Josephus, but wrongly, for she was his uncle's daughter; so that they were brother's children, or own cousins, see ( Esther 2:7 ) .
