Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 2:49

_ _ Daniel requested — Contrast this honorable remembrance of his humble friends in his elevation with the spirit of the children of the world in the chief butler’s case (Genesis 40:23; Ecclesiastes 9:15, Ecclesiastes 9:16; Amos 6:6).

_ _ in the gate — the place of holding courts of justice and levees in the East (Esther 2:19; Job 29:7). So “the Sublime Porte,” or “Gate,” denotes the sultan’s government, his counsels being formerly held in the entrance of his palace. Daniel was a chief counselor of the king, and president over the governors of the different orders into which the Magi were divided.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 2:46-49.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 2:49

And he set — He substituted them as lieutenants for the king's service under Daniel, but Daniel sat in the king's gate to be ready for the king's chief business.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 2:49

Then Daniel (e) requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel [sat] in the (f) gate of the king.

(e) He did not do this for their personal profit, but that the whole Church, which was then there in affliction, might have some release and ease by this benefit.

(f) Meaning that either he was a judge, or that he had the whole authority, so than no one could be admitted to the king's presence but by him.
