Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 4:16

_ _ heart — understanding (Isaiah 6:10).

_ _ times — that is, “years” (Daniel 12:7). “Seven” is the perfect number: a week of years: a complete revolution of time accompanying a complete revolution in his state of mind.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 4:4-18.
