Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 12:6

_ _ one — namely, of the two (Daniel 12:5).

_ _ man ... in linen — who had spoken up to this point. God impelled the angel to ask in order to waken us out of our torpor, seeing that the very “angels desire to look into” the things affecting man’s redemption (1 Peter 1:12), as setting forth the glory of their Lord and ours (Ephesians 3:10).

_ _ How long ... to the end of these wonders — This question of the angel refers to the final dealings of God in general, Antichrist’s overthrow, and the resurrection. Daniel’s question (Daniel 12:8) refers to the more immediate future of his nation [Auberlen].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 12:5-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 12:6

To the man — To Christ, who seemed to stand in the air above the waters, or upon them.
