Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 4:9

_ _ spirit of the holy gods — Nebuchadnezzar speaks as a heathen, who yet has imbibed some notions of the true God. Hence he speaks of “gods” in the plural but gives the epithet “holy,” which applies to Jehovah alone, the heathen gods making no pretension to purity, even in the opinion of their votaries (Deuteronomy 32:31; compare Isaiah 63:11). “I know” refers to his knowledge of Daniel’s skill many years before (Daniel 2:8); hence he calls him “master of the magicians.”

_ _ troubleth — gives thee difficulty in explaining it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 4:4-18.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 4:9

O Belteshazzar, (e) master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods [is] in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.

(e) Which also was a great grief to the Prophet, to be numbered among the sorcerers and men whose practices were wicked and contrary to God's word.
