Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Esther 8:2

_ _ the king took off his ring, ... and gave it unto Mordecai — By that act transferring to him all the power and authority which the ring symbolized, and promoting him to the high dignity which Haman had formerly filled.

_ _ Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman — as her steward or factor, to manage that large and opulent estate which had been assigned to her.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Esther 8:1-2.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Esther 8:2

Ring — That ring which he had formerly given to Haman he now gives to Mordecai, and with it that power whereof this ring was a sign, making him, as Haman had been, the keeper of his signet. Set — As her steward, to manage that great estate for her as he thought fittest.
