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

  • Calvin
    2 things stand out to me: (1) Daniel himself has a similar dream that mentions thi 4th kingdom and the 10 toes. Daniel 2:41 and 43 mentions that it is miry clay, and speaks of "these mingle with the seed of men."
    Also, the 10 toes in also mentioned in Revelation 13- in conjunction with the Beast.
  • A disciple
    Bill Timberlake; The LORD showed Daniel exactly what was meant by all the different parts of the Times of the heathen till Christ comes. The hardness and cruelty of the IRON is spiritually mingled with the weakness and perversion of the world of the ungodly; thus also are they led into error to believe what is false as they think their hardness and wickedness is their strength shall be their ruin.
  • Bill Timberlake
    It does not make it clear in any commentary what Daniel 2:43 means, even though it will be revealed as the book is now being opened again. Possibly iron and clay could mean robots combined with human seed. The final ten kingdoms are the last kingdoms that come before the 1,000 year rain of Christ, which will have a lot of technologies; biological, mechanical, and intel. mixed and yet He saves us.
  • WG
    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.

  • David
    In response to Harry, the fourth Kingdom was Rome. The empire however was divided and formed what we know as Europe today. We also consider that in that time period Rome was divided with the state forming one entity Pagan Rome,
