Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:27

_ _ cannot — Daniel, being learned in all the lore of the Chaldeans (Daniel 1:4), could authoritatively declare the impossibility of mere man solving the king’s difficulty.

_ _ soothsayers — from a root, “to cut off”; referring to their cutting the heavens into divisions, and so guessing at men’s destinies from the place of the stars at one’s birth.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
