Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 7:5

_ _ bear — symbolizing the austere life of the Persians in their mountains, also their cruelty (Isaiah 13:17, Isaiah 13:18; Cambyses, Ochus, and other of the Persian princes were notoriously cruel; the Persian laws involved, for one man’s offense, the whole kindred and neighborhood in destruction, Daniel 6:24) and rapacity. “A bear is an all-devouring animal” [Aristotle, 8.5], (Jeremiah 51:48, Jeremiah 51:56).

_ _ raised ... itself on one side — but the Hebrew, “It raised up one dominion.” The Medes, an ancient people, and the Persians, a modern tribe, formed one united sovereignty in contrast to the third and fourth kingdoms, each originally one, afterwards divided. English Version is the result of a slight change of a Hebrew letter. The idea then would be, “It lay on one of its fore feet, and stood on the other”; a figure still to be seen on one of the stones of Babylon [Munter, The Religion of Babylonia, 112]; denoting a kingdom that had been at rest, but is now rousing itself for conquest. Media is the lower side, passiveness; Persia, the upper, active element [Auberlen]. The three ribs in its mouth are Media, Lydia, and Babylon, brought under the Persian sway. Rather, Babylon, Lydia, and Egypt, not properly parts of its body, but seized by Medo-Persia [Sir Isaac Newton]. Called “ribs” because they strengthened the Medo-Persian empire. “Between its teeth,” as being much grinded by it.

_ _ devour much flesh — that is, subjugate many nations.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 7:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 7:5

Another beast — The Mede's and Persians, a fierce, ravenous creature. On one side — The north side; for the Mede first arose and sent to Cyrus the Persian to come and assist him against the Assyrian. Three ribs — Several of the Babylonian subjects revolted, and all these made the three ribs.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Daniel 7:5

And behold another beast, a second, like to a (d) bear, and it raised up itself on (e) one side, and [it had] three ribs in the (f) mouth of it between the teeth of it: (g) and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

(d) Meaning the Persians who were barbarous and cruel.

(e) They were small in the beginning, and were shut up in the mountains, and had no strength.

(f) That is, destroyed many kingdoms and whose hunger could not be satisfied.

(g) That is, the angels by God's commandment, who by this means punished the ingratitude of the world.
