Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 9:21

_ _ I had seen in the vision at the beginning — namely, in the former vision by the river Ulai (Daniel 8:1, Daniel 8:16).

_ _ fly swiftly — literally, “with weariness,” that is, move swiftly as one breathless and wearied out with quick running [Gesenius]. English Version is better (Isaiah 6:2; Ezekiel 1:6; Revelation 14:6).

_ _ time of ... evening oblation — the ninth hour, three o’clock (compare 1 Kings 18:36). As formerly, when the temple stood, this hour was devoted to sacrifices, so now to prayer. Daniel, during the whole captivity to the very last, with pious patriotism never forgot God’s temple-worship, but speaks of its rites long abolished, as if still in use.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 9:20-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 9:21

About the time — The time of the evening sacrifice was a solemn and set time of devotion. Tho' the altar was in ruins, and there was no oblation offered upon it, yet the pious Jews were daily thoughtful of the time when it should have been offered, and hoped that their prayer would be set forth before God as incense, and the lifting up of their hands, as the evening sacrifice. This was peculiarly a type of that great sacrifice, which Christ was to offer: and it was in virtue of that sacrifice, that Daniel's prayer was accepted, when he prayed for the Lord's sake.
