Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 11:18

_ _ isles — He “took many” of the isles in the Aegean in his war with the Romans, and crossed the Hellespont.

_ _ prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach ... to cease — Lucius Scipio Asiaticus, the Roman general, by routing Antiochus at Magnesia (190 b.c.), caused the reproach which he offered Rome by inflicting injuries on Rome’s allies, to cease. He did it for his own glory.

_ _ without his own reproach — with untarnished reputation.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 11:5-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 11:18

The isles — The isles and sea — coasts of the Mediterranean and Aegean sea. But a prince — The Roman ambassador Scipio beat Antiochus at his own weapons of power and policy, and turned the reproach upon his own head.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 11:18

After this shall he turn his face unto the (l) isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf (m) shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause [it] to turn upon (n) him.

(l) That is, towards Asia, Greece, and those isles which are in the Mediterranean Sea: for the Jews called all countries which were divided by the sea "isles".

(m) For whereas Antiochus was accustomed to condemn the Romans, and put their ambassadors to shame in all places, Attilius the consul, or Lucius Scipio put him to flight, and caused his shame to turn on his own head.

(n) By his wicked life, and obedience to foolish counsel.
