Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 11:24

_ _ peaceably — literally, “unexpectedly”; under the guise of friendship he seized Ptolemy Philometer.

_ _ he shall do that which his fathers have not done — His predecessors, kings of Syria, had always coveted Egypt, but in vain: he alone made himself master of it.

_ _ scatter among them ... prey — among his followers (1 Maccabees 1:19).

_ _ forecast his devices against ... strongholds — He shall form a studied scheme for making himself master of the Egyptian fortresses. He gained them all except Alexandria, which successfully resisted him. Retaining to himself Pelusium, he retired to Judea, where, in revenge for the joy shown by the Jews at the report of his death, which led them to a revolt, he subdued Jerusalem by storm or stratagem.

_ _ for a time — His rage shall not be for ever; it is but for a time limited by God. Calvin makes “for a time” in antithesis to “unexpectedly,” in the beginning of the verse. He suddenly mastered the weaker cities: he had to “forecast his plans” more gradually (“for a time”) as to how to gain the stronger fortresses.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 11:21-45.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 11:24

He shall enter peaceably — He shall come in upon the Egyptians under pretence of peace, in a plentiful and delicious country, and among a mass of treasures which the kings successively had heaped up; the greatest part of which Antiochus distributed among his confidants, whereby he obliged them the faster to him. He did herein what his fathers had not done; the kings of Syria before him, could never attain to this success over Egypt. Against the strong — holds — Having succeeded thus far, he shall proceed to the places of greatest strength in that kingdom. For a time — That is 'till God put a stop to his career, for the Egyptians found means to deliver themselves from his yoke.
