8 have them bring a royal robe the king has worn and a horse the king has ridden, one with a royal crest placed on its head.
8 let royal robes be brought, which the king has worn, and the horse that the king has ridden, and on whose head a royal crown
8 Bring a royal robe that the king has worn and a horse the king has ridden, one with a royal crown on its head.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Esther 6:8
Commentary on Esther 6:4-11
(Read Esther 6:4-11)
See how men's pride deceives them. The deceitfulness of our own hearts appears in nothing more than in the conceit we have of ourselves and our own performances: against which we should constantly watch and pray. Haman thought the king loved and valued no one but himself, but he was deceived. We should suspect that the esteem which others profess for us, is not so great as it seems to be, that we may not think too well of ourselves, nor trust too much in others. How Haman is struck, when the king bids him do honour to Mordecai the Jew, the very man whom he hated above all men, whose ruin he was now designing!
