Daniel 10:20 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Daniel is summoned, reminds the king of his sin, and reads and interprets the writing.

The counsel of the queen was followed, and without delay Daniel was brought in. העל, cf. העלּוּ Daniel 5:15, is Hebr. Hophal of על equals עלל, to go in, as הוּסף, Daniel 4:33. The question of the king: Art thou Daniel ... ? did not expect an answer, and has this meaning: Thou art indeed Daniel. The address shows that Belshazzar was acquainted with Daniel's origin, of which the queen had said nothing, but that he had had no official intercourse with him. It shows also that Daniel was no longer the president of the magicians at the king's court (Daniel 2:48.).
