    1 Belshazzar's impious feast. 5 A hand-writing unknown to the magicians, troubles the king. 10 At the commendation of the queen Daniel is brought. 17 He, reproving the king of pride and idolatry, 25 reads and interprets the writing. 30 The monarchy is translated to the Medes.

Belshazzar is said by Josephus to be the same as Naboandelus, the Nabonadius of Ptolemy, and the Labynetus of Herodotus.

Though Daniel was one of the chief ministers of state, who did "the king's business" in the palace, (Da 8:27,) yet Belshazzar seems to have known nothing of him. This shews that he was a weak and vicious prince, who minded pleasure more than business, according to the character given him by historians. He appears to have left the care of public affairs to his mother, Nitocris, a lady celebrated for her wisdom, who evidently knew Daniel well, and probably constantly employed him in the government of the kingdom. * :11; 1:21; 2:48; 8:1,27 - the children. * Da 2:25; 6:13 Ezr 4:1; 6:16,19,20; 10:7,16 - father. or, grandfather.

Chal. interpret. * Ge 40:8 - thou shalt. * :7 Ac 8:18 VERSE 17 - Let. Daniel, on this occasion, behaved in a very different manner to Belshazzar, than he had formerly done to Nebuchadnezzar. Belshazzar had that very night insulted the God of heaven in the most daring manner; and the venerable prophet, as His delegate, denounced sentence against him. * :29 Ge 14:23 2Ki 3:13; 5:16,26 Ac 8:20 - rewards. or, fee. * Da 2:6 - I will read. * Ps 119:46 VERSE 18 - O thou. * Da 3:17,18; 4:22; 6:22 Ac 26:13,19 - the most. * Da 2:37,38; 4:17,22-25,32 De 32:8 Ps 7:17; 9:2; 47:2; 92:8 * La 3:35,38 Ac 7:48 VERSE 19 - that he. * Da 3:4; 4:22 Jer 25:9-14; 27:5-7 Hab 2:5 Ro 13:1 - whom he would he slew. * Da 2:12,13; 3:6,20,21,29 Pr 16:14 Joh 19:11 VERSE 20 - when. * Da 4:30-33,37 Ex 9:17; 18:11 Job 15:25-27; 40:11,12 Pr 16:5,18 * Isa 14:12-17 Lu 1:51,52; 18:14 - hardened. * 1Sa 6:6 2Ki 17:14 2Ch 36:13 Jer 19:15 Heb 3:13 - in pride. or, to deal proudly. deposed.

He was, strictly speaking, "his grandson;" but the term son is frequently used to denote filiation at any distance. - hast. * Ex 10:3 2Ch 33:23; 36:12 Isa 26:10 Mt 21:32 Ac 5:29-33 * 1Pe 5:5,6 - though. * Lu 12:47 Joh 13:17 Jas 4:6,17 VERSE 23 - lifted. * :3,4 2Ki 14:10 Isa 2:12; 33:10; 37:23 Jer 50:29 Eze 28:2,5,17 * Eze 31:10 Hab 2:4 1Ti 3:6 Re 13:5,6 - the Lord. * Da 4:37 Ge 14:19 Ps 115:16 - and they. * :2-4 1Sa 5:1-9 - hast praised. * Jud 16:23 - which. * Ps 115:4-8; 135:15-17 Isa 37:19; 46:6,7 Hab 2:18,19 1Co 8:4 - in whose. * Ge 2:7 Job 12:10; 34:14,15 Ps 104:29; 146:4 Isa 42:5 * Ac 17:25,28,29 - and whose. * Job 31:4 Ps 139:3 Pr 20:24 Jer 10:23 Heb 4:13 - hast thou. * Ro 1:21-23 VERSE 24 - See on ver. * :5 VERSE 25 - MENE. Had these words been written in the Chaldean character, every one who knew the alphabet of the language could at least have read them: they are pure Chaldee, and literally denote "He is numbered, he is numbered; he is weighed; they are divided." * :25 VERSE 26 - God. * Da 9:2 Job 14:14 Isa 13:1-32 14:32; 21:1-10; 47:1-15 Jer 25:11,12 * Jer 27:7; 50:1-64 51:64 Ac 15:18 VERSE 27 - Thou. * Job 31:6 Ps 62:9 Jer 6:30 Eze 22:18-20 - art. * Mt 22:11,12 1Co 3:13 VERSE 28 - PERES.
