Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 3:23

_ _ fell down — not cast down; for those who brought the three youths to the furnace, perished by the flames themselves, and so could not cast them in. Here follows an addition in the Septuagint, Syrian, Arabic, and Vulgate versions. “The Prayer of Azarias,” and “The Song of the Three Holy Children.” It is not in the Chaldee. The hymn was sung throughout the whole Church in their liturgies, from the earliest times [Rufinus in Commentary on the Apostles Creed, and Athanasius]. The “astonishment” of Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 3:24 is made an argument for its genuineness, as if it explained the cause of his astonishment, namely, “they walked in the midst of the fire praising God, but the angel of the Lord came down into the oven” (Daniel 3:1 and Daniel 3:27 of the Apocryphal addition). But Daniel 3:25 of English Version explains his astonishment, without need of any addition.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 3:19-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 3:23

Fell down — All this is exprest with emphasis, to make the power of God more glorious in their preservation; for that shame that slew the executioners, might much more easily have killed them, even before they fell down.
