Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 4:35

_ _ all ... as nothing — (Isaiah 40:15, Isaiah 40:17).

_ _ according to his will in ... heaven — (Psalms 115:3; Psalms 135:6; Matthew 6:10; Ephesians 1:11).

_ _ army — the heavenly hosts, angels and starry orbs (compare Isaiah 24:21).

_ _ none ... stay his hand — literally, “strike His hand.” Image from striking the hand of another, to check him in doing anything (Isaiah 43:13; Isaiah 45:9).

_ _ What doest thou — (Job 9:12; Romans 9:20).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 4:34-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 4:35

As nothing — A due consideration of God's infinite greatness, makes the creature appear as nothing; creatures are nothing to help, nothing to hurt, nothing in duration, nothing solid and substantial, nothing without dependence, and influence, and support from God. His will — Being the Lord of hosts, and the only absolute and universal monarch of the world.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 4:35

And all the inhabitants of the earth [are] reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his (s) will in the army of heaven, and [among] the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

(s) He confesses God's will to be the rule of all justice, and a most perfect law, by which he governs both man and angels and devils, so that none ought to murmur or ask a reason for his doings, but only to stand content with them and give him the glory.
