Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 7:18

_ _ the Most High — the emphatic title of God in this prophecy, who delegates His power first to Israel; then to the Gentiles (Daniel 2:37, Daniel 2:38) when Israel fails to realize the idea of the theocracy; lastly, to Messiah, who shall rule truly for God, taking it from the Gentile world powers, whose history is one of continual degeneracy culminating in the last of the kings, Antichrist. Here, in the interpretation, “the saints,” but in the vision (Daniel 7:13, Daniel 7:14), “the Son of man,” takes the kingdom; for Christ and His people are one in suffering, and one in glory. Tregelles translates, “most high places” (Ephesians 1:3; Ephesians 2:6). Though oppressed by the beast and little horn, they belong not to the earth from which the four beasts arise, but to the most high places.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 7:15-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 7:18

But the saints — Jesus Christ being their king, they shall reign with him, and possess the kingdom for ever.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 7:18

But the saints of the (f) most High shall take the (g) kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

(f) That is, of the most high things, because God has chosen them out of this world, that they should look up to the heavens, upon which all their hope depends.

(g) Because Abraham was appointed heir of all the world, (Romans 4:13), and in him all the faithful, therefore the kingdom of him is theirs by right, which these four beasts or tyrants would invade, and usurp until the world were restored by Christ. And this was to strengthen and encourage those that were in troubles, that their afflictions would eventually have an end.
