Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 11:3

_ _ mighty king ... do according to his will — answering to the he-goat’s “notable horn” (Daniel 8:6, Daniel 8:7, Daniel 8:21). Alexander invaded Persia 334 b.c., to avenge the wrongs of Greece on Persia for Xerxes’ past invasion (as Alexander said in a letter to Darius Codomanus, Arrian, Alexander. 2.14.7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 11:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
