Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:28

_ _ God — in contrast to “the wise men,” etc. (Daniel 2:27).

_ _ revealeth secrets — (Amos 3:7; Amos 4:13). Compare Genesis 41:45, Zaphnath-paaneah, “revealer of secrets,” the title given to Joseph.

_ _ the latter days — literally, “in the after days” (Daniel 2:29); “hereafter” (Genesis 49:1). It refers to the whole future, including the Messianic days, which is the final dispensation (Isaiah 2:2).

_ _ visions of thy head — conceptions formed in the brain.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 2:24-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 2:28

What shall be — Observe the prophet's wisdom, he does not fall abruptly upon the dream, but first prepares this lofty king for it, and by degrees labours to win him to the knowledge of the true God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 2:28

But there is a God in (o) heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

(o) He affirms that man by reason and craft is not able to attain to the cause of God's secrets, but the understanding only of them must come from God: by which he smites the king with a certain fear and reverence of God, that he might be the more able to receive the high mysteries that would be revealed.
