“And Mordecai came again to the king's gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.”
King James Version (KJV)
6:12 Gate - To his former place; shewing that as he was not overwhelmed by Haman's threats, so he was not puffed up with this honour. Cover'd - In token of his shame and grief for his unexpected disappointment, and for the great honour done to his abhorred adversary, by his own hands, and with his own public disgrace.
