Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:47

_ _ Lord of kings — The world power shall at last have to acknowledge this (Revelation 17:14; Revelation 19:16); even as Nebuchadnezzar, who had been the God-appointed “king of kings” (Daniel 2:37), but who had abused the trust, is constrained by God’s servant to acknowledge that God is the true “Lord of kings.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 2:46-49.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 2:47

God of gods — The supreme God of all the world, above Baal and all other gods. Lord of kings — The word in the Syriack signifies, high Lord, seeing he is the highest king of all the earth.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 2:47

The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth [it is], that your (c) God [is] a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.

(c) This confession was but a sudden motion, as it was also in Pharaoh, (Exodus 9:28), but his heart was not touched, as appeared soon afterwards.
