SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:5 Â¶ Y yo, Daniel, miré, y he aquí otros dos que estaban, el uno a este lado a la orilla del río, y el otro al otro lado a la orilla del río.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Daniel 12:5 Verse 5. Behold there stood other two] Probably two angels. We know no more of them, unless they be the same as those called saints, chap. viii. 13, which see. The river was most likely the Tigris.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two , etc.] Other two angels, besides the man clothed with linen, ( Daniel 12:6) or rather besides the angel who had given Daniel the long account of things that were to come to pass, in the preceding chapter, and the beginning of this; whom Daniel, being attentive to that account, had not observed before; but now, that being finished, he looks about him, and takes notice of those other two who were standing, being ministering spirits to Christ, and ready to execute his orders: the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river ; Hiddekel or Tigris, as appears from ( Daniel 10:4).
The reason of this position was chiefly on account of Christ, the man clothed with linen, who stood upon or above the water of the river, in the midst of it; and to show that they were waiting upon him, and ready to go every way he should send them to do his will; and also on account of Daniel, that he might hear what was said, whether to Christ, or to one another; since, being at such a distance, their voice must be loud; and indeed the design of all that follows to the end of the chapter is to inform him, and by him the church and people of God in all future ages, of the time and end of all these things before delivered in the prophecy.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The conclusion of the vision of the Scriptures of truth. (Dan. 12:1-4 The times of the continuance of these events. (Dan. 12:5-13)
Dan. 12:1-4. Michael signifies, "Who is like God," and his name, with the title of "the great Prince," points out the Divine Saviour. Chris stood for the children of our people in their stead as a sacrifice bore the curse for them, to bear it from them. He stands for them in pleading for them at the throne of grace. And after the destruction of antichrist, the Lord Jesus shall stand at the latter day upon the earth; and He shall appear for the complete redemption of all his people. When God works deliverance from persecution for them, it is a life from the dead. When his gospel is preached, many who sleep in the dust, both Jews and Gentiles, shall be awakened by it out of their heathenism of Judaism. And in the end the multitude that sleep in the dust shall awake; many shall arise to life, and many to shame. There is glory reserved for all the saints in the future state, for all that ar wise, wise for their souls and eternity. Those who turn many to righteousness, who turn sinners from the errors of their ways, and hel to save their souls from death, James 5:20, will share in the glory of those they have helped to heaven, which will add to their own glory.
Dan. 12:5-13 One of the angels asking how long it should be to the en of these wonders, a solemn reply is made, that it would be for a time times, and a half, the period mentioned Dan. 7:25, and in the Revelation. It signifies 1260 prophetic days or years, beginning from the time when the power of the holy people should be scattered. The imposture of Mohammed, and the papal usurpation, began about the sam time; and these were a twofold attack upon the church of God. But all will end well at last. All opposing rule, principality, and power shall be put down, and holiness and love will triumph, and be in honour, to eternity. The end, this end, shall come. What an amazin prophecy is this, of so many varied events, and extending through s many successive ages, even to the general resurrection! Daniel mus comfort himself with the pleasing prospect of his own happiness in death, in judgment, and to eternity. It is good for us all to thin much of going away from this world. That must be our way; but it is ou comfort that we shall not go till God calls us to another world, an till he has done with us in this world; till he says, God thou thy way thou hast done thy work, therefore now, go thy way, and leave it to others to take thy place. It was a comfort to Daniel, and is a comfor to all the saints, that whatever their lot is in the days of their lives, they shall have a happy lot in the end of the days. And it ough to be the great care and concern of every one of us to secure this Then we may well be content with our present lot, and welcome the wil of God. Believers are happy at all times; they rest in God by fait now, and a rest is reserved for them in heaven at last __________________________________________________________________
