Wesley's Notes for Daniel 2:46


2:46 That they should offer - This was strange, that so great a monarch should thus worship his vassal, which he did in consternation and admiration. But doubtless Daniel put a stop to it: though he could not hinder the king in his prostration, and in his word of command. And the king being instructed of Daniel, gives God all the glory in the next words.


Discussion for Daniel 2

    Daniel is such an incredible book. In chapters 2-4 King Nebuchadnezzar realizes the absolute sovereignty of Daniel's God. Very insightful as God is my master and is sovereign in all of my life. Not just a statement but I want to be ever mindful that nothing happens seemingly for or against me that He does not allow.

    The fourth kingdom sounds like USA...

    And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, THEY shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
    Who are THEY...?
