Esther 4:2 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Lest it should appear as though the king had been induced by the prospect held out of obtaining a sum of money, he awards this to Haman. "The silver be given to thee, and the people to do to them (let it be done to them) as seemeth good to thee." והעם precedes absolutely: as for the people of the Jews, etc.
