Daniel 6:15 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Daniel's willingness to declare his dream to the king; his prayer for a revelation of the secret, and the answer to his prayer; his explanation before the king.

Daniel 2:14

Through Daniel's judicious interview of Arioch, the further execution of the royal edict was interrupted. וּטעם עטא התיב, he answered, replied, counsel and understanding, i.e., the words of counsel and understanding; cf. Proverbs 26:16. The name Arioch appears in Genesis 14:1 as the name of the king of Ellasar, along with the kings of Elam and Shinar. It is derived not from the Sanscr. ârjaka, venerabilis, but is probably formed from ארי, a lion, as נסרך from nisr equals נשׁר. רב־טבּחיּא is the chief of the bodyguard, which was regarded as the highest office of the kingdom (cf. Jeremiah 39:9, Jeremiah 39:11; Jeremiah 40:1.). It was his business to see to the execution of the king's commands; see 1 Kings 2:25; 2 Kings 25:8.
