CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:15 Fairer and fatter - The blessing of God upon homely fare, affords often more health and strength, than more costly fare to them that eat the fat, and drink the sweet.
"You must serve only the LORD your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness.
The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.
The attendant agreed to Daniel's suggestion and tested them for ten days.
