Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 7:13

_ _ Son of man — (See on Ezekiel 2:1). Not merely Son of David, and King of Israel, but Head of restored humanity (corresponding to the world-wide horizon of Daniel’s prophecy); the seed of the woman, crushing Antichrist, the seed of the serpent, according to the Prot-evangel in Paradise (Genesis 3:15). The Representative Man shall then realize the original destiny of man as Head of the creation (Genesis 1:26, Genesis 1:28); the center of unity to Israel and the Gentiles. The beast, which taken conjointly represents the four beasts, ascends from the sea (Daniel 7:2; Revelation 13:1); the Son of man descends from “heaven.” Satan, as the serpent, is the representative head of all that bestial; man, by following the serpent, has become bestial. God must, therefore, become man, so that man may cease to be beast-like. Whoever rejects the incarnate God will be judged by the Son of man just because He is the Son of man (John 5:27). This title is always associated with His coming again, because the kingdom that then awaits Him in that which belongs to Him as the Savior of man, the Restorer of the lost inheritance. “Son of man” expresses His VISIBLE state formerly in his humiliation hereafter in His exaltation. He “comes to the Ancient of days” to be invested with the kingdom. Compare Psalms 110:2 : “The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength (Messiah) out of Zion.” This investiture was at His ascension “with the clouds of heaven” (Acts 1:9; Acts 2:33, Acts 2:34; Psalms 2:6-9; Matthew 28:18), which is a pledge of His return “in like manner” in the clouds” (Acts 1:11; Matthew 26:64), and “with clouds” (Revelation 1:7). The kingdom then was given to Him in title and invisible exercise; at His second coming it shall be in visible administration. He will vindicate it from the misrule of those who received it to hold for and under God, but who ignored His supremacy. The Father will assert His right by the Son, the heir, who will hold it for Him (Ezekiel 1:27; Hebrews 1:2; Revelation 19:13-16). Tregelles thinks the investiture here immediately precedes Christ’s coming forth; because He sits at God’s right hand until His enemies are made His footstool, then the kingdom is given to the Son in actual investiture, and He comes to crush His so prepared footstool under His feet. But the words, “with the clouds,” and the universal power actually, though invisibly, given Him then (Ephesians 1:20-22), agree best with His investiture at the ascension, which, in the prophetic view that overleaps the interval of ages, is the precursor of His coming visibly to reign; no event of equal moment taking place in the interval.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 7:9-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 7:13

A son of man — That is, the Messiah, he came with the clouds of heaven, gloriously, swiftly and terribly. And came — This relates to his ascension, at which time, he received his royal investiture, for the protection of his church, and curbing of their enemies.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 7:13

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, (a) [one] like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and (b) came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

(a) Which is meant of Christ, who had not yet taken upon him man's nature, neither was he yet the son of David according to the flesh, as he was afterward: but he appeared then in a figure, and that in the clouds, that is, being separated from the common sort of men by manifest signs of his divinity.

(b) That is, when he ascended into the heavens, and his divine majesty appeared, and all power was given to him, in respect that he was our mediator.
