Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:44

_ _ in the days of these kings — in the days of these kingdoms, that is, of the last of the four. So Christianity was set up when Rome had become mistress of Judea and the world (Luke 2:1, etc.) [Newton]. Rather, “in the days of these kings,” answers to “upon his feet” (Daniel 2:34); that is, the ten toes (Daniel 2:42), or ten kings, the final state of the Roman empire. For “these kings” cannot mean the four successional monarchies, as they do not coexist as the holders of power; if the fourth had been meant, the singular, not the plural, would be used. The falling of the stone on the image must mean, destroying judgment on the fourth Gentile power, not gradual evangelization of it by grace; and the destroying judgment cannot be dealt by Christians, for they are taught to submit to the powers that be, so that it must be dealt by Christ Himself at His coming again. We live under the divisions of the Roman empire which began fourteen hundred years ago, and which at the time of His coming shall be definitely ten. All that had failed in the hand of man shall then pass away, and that which is kept in His own hand shall be introduced. Thus the second chapter is the alphabet of the subsequent prophetic statements in Daniel [Tregelles].

_ _ God of heaven ... kingdom — hence the phrase, “the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 3:2).

_ _ not ... left to other people — as the Chaldees had been forced to leave their kingdom to the Medo-Persians, and these to the Greeks, and these to the Romans (Micah 4:7; Luke 1:32, Luke 1:33).

_ _ break ... all — (Isaiah 60:12; 1 Corinthians 15:24).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 2:44

In the days of these kings — While the iron kingdom stood, for Christ was born in the reign of Augustus Caesar. And this kingdom is not bounded by any limits, as worldly empires are, but is truly universal. And it shall be for ever, never destroyed or given to others, as the rest were.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 2:44

And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which (z) shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

(z) His purpose is to show that all the kingdoms of the world are transitory, and that the kingdom of Christ alone will remain forever.
