Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 1:10

_ _ worse liking — looking less healthy.

_ _ your sort — of your age, or class; literally, “circle.”

_ _ endanger my head — An arbitrary Oriental despot could, in a fit of wrath at his orders having been disobeyed, command the offender to be instantly decapitated.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 1:10

And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, (n) I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which [are] of your sort? then shall ye make [me] endanger my head to the king.

(n) He supposed they did this for their religion, which was contrary to the Babylonians, and therefore in this he represents those who are of no religion: for neither would he condemn theirs, nor maintain his own.
