John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezra 6:11

Also I have made a decree, that whosoever shall alter this
word
Act contrary to this command, will not obey it, but as much as in him lies changes and revokes it:

let timber be pulled down from his house, and being set up, let him, be
hanged thereon;
that is, let a beam be taken from it, and a gallows or gibbet made of it, and hang him on it:

and let his house be made a dunghill for this;
be pulled down, and never rebuilt more, (See Gill on Daniel 2:2), (See Gill on Daniel 2:9).
