Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:40

_ _ iron — This vision sets forth the character of the Roman power, rather than its territorial extent [Tregelles].

_ _ breaketh in pieces — So, in righteous retribution, itself will at last be broken in pieces (Daniel 2:44) by the kingdom of God (Revelation 13:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 2:31-45.
