Bible Commentary for Daniel 3:18

Wesley's Notes for Daniel 3:18


3:18 But if not - It was therefore all one to them, which way God would honour himself; they were resolved to suffer rather than sin, and leave the cause to God. Indeed if God be for us, we need not fear what man can do unto us. Let him do his worst. God will deliver us either from death, or in death.


Discussion for Daniel 3:18

  • Ijey on Daniel 3:18
    The jew men I believe have faith in God 's ability to save them. They know that God is well able to deliver them from the king 's wrath. The following clause "if not " I believe is to buttress the degree of their stand in God. This is to say that in this God, His commandments, instructions not to bow before other gods they will abide be it in pains, life or death. No matter what happens. Its more like a mind that is completely made up to follow the precepts of God.
