Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 11:29

_ _ At the time appointed — “the time” spoken of in Daniel 11:27.

_ _ return — his second open invasion of Egypt. Ptolemy Philometer, suspecting Antiochus’ designs with Physcon, hired mercenaries from Greece. Whereupon Antiochus advanced with a fleet and an army, demanding the cession to him of Cyprus, Pelusium, and the country adjoining the Pelusiac mouth of the Nile.

_ _ it shall not be as the former — not successful as the former expedition. Popilius Loenas, the Roman ambassador, met him at Eleusis, four miles from Alexandria, and presented him the decree of the senate; on Antiochus replying that he would consider what he was to do, Popilius drew a line round him with a rod and said, “I must have a reply to give to the senate before you leave this circle.” Antiochus submitted, and retired from Egypt; and his fleets withdrew from Cyprus.

_ _ or as the latter — that mentioned in Daniel 11:42, Daniel 11:43 [Tregelles]. Or, making this the third expedition, the sense is “not as the first or as the second” expeditions [Piscator]. Rather “not as the former, so shall be this latter” expedition [Grotius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 11:21-45.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 11:29
