Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 11:38

_ _ God of forces — probably Jupiter Capitolinus, to whom Antiochus began to erect a temple at Antioch [Livy, 41.20]. Translate, “He shall honor the god of fortresses on his basis,” that is, the base of the statue. Newton translates, “And the god ‘Mahuzzim’ (guardians, that is, saints adored as ‘protectors’ in the Greek and Roman churches) shall he honor.”

_ _ honour with gold, etc. — Compare Revelation 17:4 as to Antiochus’ antitype, Antichrist.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 11:21-45.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 11:38

But in his estate — In the room of his father's god. The God of forces — This seems to be Jupiter Olympius, never introduced among the Syrians, 'till Antiochus did it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 11:38

But in his estate shall he honour the (y) God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with (z) gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

(y) That is, the god of power and riches: they will esteem their own power above all their gods and worship it.

(z) Under pretence of worshipping the gods, they will enrich their city with the most precious jewels of all the world, because by this all men would hold them in admiration for their power and riches.
