Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 11:35

_ _ to try them — the design of affliction. Image from metals tried with fire.

_ _ to purge — Even in the elect there are dregs which need to be purged out (1 Peter 1:7). Hence they are allowed to fall for a time; not finally (2 Chronicles 32:31; Luke 22:31). Image from wheat cleared of its chaff by the wind.

_ _ make ... white — image from cloth (Revelation 7:9).

_ _ to ... time of ... end — God will not suffer His people to be persecuted without limitation (1 Corinthians 10:13). The godly are to wait patiently for “the end” of “the time” of trial; “for it is (to last) yet for a time appointed” by God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 11:35

And [some] of them (r) of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make [them] white, [even] to the time of the end: because [it is] yet for a time appointed.

(r) That is, of those that fear God and will lose their life for the defence of true religion. Signifying also that the Church must continually be tried and purged, and ought to look for one persecution after another: for God has appointed the time, and therefore we must obey.
