Wesley's Notes for Daniel 6:10


6:10 Toward Jerusalem - The temple was the place where the Lord placed his name, and promised to appear, and accept his people, all being a type of Christ, through whom only sinners are accepted. As he did aforetime - He did not abate his prayers for the king's command, nor did he break the law purposely, because he did no more than he was wont to do in serving his God.

If the king had discerned the evil motive of the presidents and princes, I would definitely have refused passing the decree.
