Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 6:10

_ _ when Daniel knew ... writing ... signed — and that, therefore, the power of advising the king against it was taken from him.

_ _ went into his house — withdrawing from the God-dishonoring court.

_ _ windows ... open — not in vainglory, but that there might be no obstruction to his view of the direction in which Jerusalem, the earthly seat of Jehovah under the Old Testament, lay; and that the sight of heaven might draw his mind off from earthly thoughts. To Christ in the heavenly temple let us turn our eyes in prayer, from this land of our captivity (1 Kings 8:44, 1 Kings 8:48; 2 Chronicles 6:29, 2 Chronicles 6:34, 2 Chronicles 6:38; Psalms 5:7).

_ _ chamber — the upper room, where prayer was generally offered by the Jews (Acts 1:13). Not on the housetop (Acts 10:9), where he would be conspicuous.

_ _ upon his knees — Humble attitudes in prayer become humble suppliants.

_ _ three times a day — (Psalms 55:17). The third, sixth, and ninth hour; our nine, twelve, and three o’clock (Acts 2:15; Acts 10:9; Acts 3:1; Acts 10:30; compare Daniel 9:21).

_ _ as ... aforetime — not from contempt of the king’s command.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 6:6-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 6:10

Toward Jerusalem — The temple was the place where the Lord placed his name, and promised to appear, and accept his people, all being a type of Christ, through whom only sinners are accepted. As he did aforetime — He did not abate his prayers for the king's command, nor did he break the law purposely, because he did no more than he was wont to do in serving his God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 6:10

Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his (e) windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

(e) Because he would not by his silence show that he consented to this wicked decree, he set open his windows toward Jerusalem when he prayed: both to stir up himself with the remembrance of God's promises to his people, when they should pray toward that temple, and also that others might see that he would neither consent in heart nor deed for these few days to anything that was contrary to God's glory.
