Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 5:28

_ _ Peres — the explanation of “dividers” (Daniel 5:25), the active participle plural there being used for the passive participle singular, “dividers” for “divided.” The word “Peres” alludes to the similar word “Persia.”

_ _ divided — namely, among the Medes and Persians [Maurer]; or, “severed” from thee [Grotius].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 5:10-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 5:28

PERES — Separated, divided, broken. Phars signifies two things, broken off, and Persian; noting that, first, this kingdom was broken down from Belshazzar. Secondly, that it was given to the Persians.
