He reigned seven years, during which time he was engaged in unsuccessful wars with the Medes and Persians; and at this very time was besieged by Cyrus. the golden.1:2; 2Ki 24:13; 25:15; 2Ch 36:10,18; Ezr 1:7-11; Jer 27:16-22Jer 52:19father. or, grandfather.11,13,18; 2Sa 9:7; 2Ki 8:25-27; 2Ch 11:20; 15:16; Jer 27:7taken out.

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; 8:1,27the children.2:25; 6:13; Ezr 4:1; 6:16,19,20; 10:7,16father. or, grandfather.2,11,18Jewry.Joh 7:1,3Judea. 11,12 7,8; 2:3-11; Isa 29:10-12; 47:12 make.

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 8:20rewards. or, fee.2:6I will read.Ps 119:46 O thou.3:17,18; 4:22; 6:22; Ac 26:13,19the most.2:37,38; 4:17,22-25,32; De 32:8; Ps 7:17; 9:2; 47:2; 92:8La 3:35,38; Ac 7:48 that he.3:4; 4:22; Jer 25:9-14; 27:5-7; Hab 2:5; Ro 13:1whom he would he slew.2:12,13; 3:6,20,21,29; Pr 16:14; Joh 19:11 when.4:30-33,37; Ex 9:17; 18:11; Job 15:25-27; 40:11,12; Pr 16:5,18Isa 14:12-17; Lu 1:51,52; 18:14hardened.1Sa 6:6; 2Ki 17:14; 2Ch 36:13; Jer 19:15; Heb 3:13in pride. or, to deal proudly. deposed.
