Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 4:33

_ _ driven from men — as a maniac fancying himself a wild beast. It is possible, a conspiracy of his nobles may have co-operated towards his having been “driven” forth as an outcast.

_ _ hairs ... eagles’ feathers — matted together, as the hair-like, thick plumage of the ossifraga eagle. The “nails,” by being left uncut for years, would become like “claws.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 4:28-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 4:33

Was driven from men — Being bereft of his understanding, as a man distracted he fled, and betook himself to the woods.
