Bible Commentary for Daniel 6:12

Wesley's Notes for Daniel 6:12


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.

6:14 Displeased with himself - For having made that foolish decree. To deliver him - To find out some way of delivering him.
