Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 1:3

And the king spake unto (c) Ashpenaz the master of his (d) eunuchs, that he should bring [certain] of the children of Israel, and of the (e) king's seed, and of the princes;

(c) Who was as master of the guards.

(d) He calls them "eunuchs" whom the King nourished and brought up to be rulers of other countries afterwards.

(e) His purpose was to keep them as hostages, and so that he might show himself victorious, and also by their good entreaty and learning of his religion, they might favour him rather than the Jews, and so to be able to serve him as governors in their land. Moreover by this means the Jews might be better kept in subjection, fearing otherwise to bring hurt upon these noble men.
