Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:22

_ _ revealeth — (Job 12:22). So spiritually (Ephesians 1:17, Ephesians 1:18).

_ _ knoweth what is in ... darkness — (Psalms 139:11, Psalms 139:12; Hebrews 4:13).

_ _ light ... him — (James 1:17; 1 John 1:4). Apocalypse (or “revelation”) signifies a divine, prophecy a human, activity. Compare 1 Corinthians 14:6, where the two are distinguished. The prophet is connected with the outer world, addressing to the congregation the words with which the Spirit of God supplies him; he speaks in the Spirit, but the apocalyptic seer is in the Spirit in his whole person (Revelation 1:10; Revelation 4:2). The form of the apocalyptic revelation (the very term meaning that the veil that hides the invisible world is taken off) is subjectively either the dream, or, higher, the vision. The interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was a preparatory education to Daniel himself. By gradual steps, each revelation preparing him for the succeeding one, God fitted him for disclosures becoming more and more special. In the second and fourth chapters he is but an interpreter of Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams; then he has a dream himself, but it is only a vision in a dream of the night (Daniel 7:1, Daniel 7:2); then follows a vision in a waking state (Daniel 8:1-3); lastly, in the two final revelations (Daniel 9:20; Daniel 10:4, Daniel 10:5) the ecstatic state is no longer needed. The progression in the form answers to the progression in the contents of his prophecy; at first general outlines, and these afterwards filled up with minute chronological and historical details, such as are not found in the Revelation of John, though, as became the New Testament, the form of revelation is the highest, namely, clear waking visions [Auberlen].

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 2:22

He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what [is] in the darkness, and the (k) light dwelleth with him.

(k) He shows that man has neither wisdom nor knowledge, but very dark blindness and ignorance of himself: for it comes only from God that man understands anything.
