Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 3:14

_ _ Is it true — rather, as the Margin [Theodotion], “Is it purposely that?” etc. Compare the Hebrew, Numbers 35:20, Numbers 35:22. Notwithstanding his “fury,” his past favor for them disposes him to give them the opportunity of excusing themselves on the ground that their disobedience had not been intentional; so he gives them another trial to see whether they would still worship the image.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 3:8-18.
