Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:16

_ _ Daniel went in — perhaps not in person, but by the mediation of some courtier who had access to the king. His first direct interview seems to have been Daniel 2:25 [Barnes].

_ _ time — The king granted “time” to Daniel, though he would not do so to the Chaldeans because they betrayed their lying purpose by requiring him to tell the dream, which Daniel did not. Providence doubtless influenced his mind, already favorable (Daniel 1:19, Daniel 1:20), to show special favor to Daniel.

Daniel 2:9-11 But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, [there is but] one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof. ... And [it is] a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.
Daniel 1:18-19 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar. ... And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.
