Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 6:24

_ _ (Deuteronomy 19:19; Proverbs 19:5).

_ _ accused — literally, “devoured the bones and flesh.” It was just that they who had torn Daniel’s character, and sought the tearing of his person, should be themselves given to be torn in pieces (Proverbs 11:8).

_ _ their children — Among the Persians, all the kindred were involved in the guilt of one culprit. The Mosaic law expressly forbade this (Deuteronomy 24:16; 2 Kings 14:6).

_ _ or ever — that is, “before ever.” The lions’ sparing Daniel could not have been because they were full, as they showed the keenness of their hunger on the accusers.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 6:24

And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they (l) cast [them] into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.

(l) This is a terrible example against all the wicked who do against their conscience make cruel laws to destroy the children of God, and also admonishes princes how to punish such when their wickedness is come to light: though not in every point, or with similar circumstances, but yet to execute true justice upon them.
