Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 10:12

_ _ Fear not — Be not affrighted at my presence.

_ _ didst set thine heart to understand — what shall come to pass to thy people at the last times (compare Daniel 10:14).

_ _ chasten thyself — (Daniel 10:2, Daniel 10:3).

_ _ thy words were heard — (Acts 10:4). Prayer is heard at once in heaven, though the sensible answer may seem to be delayed. God’s messenger was detained on the way (Daniel 10:13) by the opposition of the powers of darkness. If in our prayers amidst long protracted sorrows we believed God’s angel is on his way to us, what consolation it would give us!

_ _ for thy words — because of thy prayers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 10:10-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 10:12

He — Not Christ, but Gabriel.
