Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:23

_ _ thee ... thee — He ascribes all the glory to God.

_ _ God of my fathers — Thou hast shown Thyself the same God of grace to me, a captive exile, as Thou didst to Israel of old and this on account of the covenant made with our “fathers” (Luke 1:54, Luke 1:55; compare Psalms 106:45).

_ _ given me wisdom and might — Thou being the fountain of both; referring to Daniel 2:20. Whatever wise ability I have to stay the execution of the king’s cruel decree, is Thy gift.

_ _ me ... we ... us — The revelation was given to Daniel, as “me” implies; yet with just modesty he joins his friends with him; because it was to their joint prayers, and not to his individually, that he owed the revelation from God.

_ _ known ... the king’s matter — the very words in which the Chaldeans had denied the possibility of any man on earth telling the dream (“not a man upon the earth can show the king’s matter,Daniel 2:10). Impostors are compelled by the God of truth to eat up their own words.
