Daniel 10:10 Meaning and Commentary

Daniel 10:10

And, behold, an hand touched me
Not the hand of the man clothed with linen, whose voice he heard, and whose hand was like polished brass, ( Daniel 10:6 ) , but the hand of one distinct from him, one of his attendants, ( Daniel 12:5 Daniel 12:6 ) that had the similitude of the sons of men, ( Daniel 10:16 ) , and whose hand was softer, and nearer a human one; very probably the hand of the Angel Gabriel in human form, who had touched him before, when in the like circumstances, ( Daniel 8:16 Daniel 8:18 ) : which set me upon my knees, and upon the palms of my hands;
or, "which caused him to move" F20; from the prostrate condition in which he was, and raised him up a little upon his hands; so that, with a little difficulty, he might be able to raise himself to stand upright.
