Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 11:15

_ _ king of ... north — Antiochus the Great.

_ _ take ... fenced cities — Scopas, the Egyptian general, met Antiochus at Paneas, near the sources of the Jordan, and was defeated, and fled to Sidon, a strongly “fenced city,” where he was forced to surrender.

_ _ chosen people — Egypt’s choicest army was sent under Eropus, Menocles, and Damoxenus, to deliver Scopas, but in vain [Jerome].
