Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 7:3

_ _ beasts — not living animals, as the cherubic four in Revelation 4:7 (for the original is a different word from “beasts,” and ought to be there translated, living animals). The cherubic living animals represent redeemed man, combining in himself the highest forms of animal life. But the “beasts” here represent the world powers, in their beast-like, groveling character. It is on the fundamental harmony between nature and spirit, between the three kingdoms of nature, history, and revelation, that Scripture symbolism rests. The selection of symbols is not arbitrary, but based on the essence of things.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 7:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 7:3

Four great beasts — That is, four great monarchies, great, in comparison of particular kingdoms; beasts for their tyrannical oppressions.
