Daniel 4:9 Meaning and Commentary

Daniel 4:9

O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians
So he called him, either because he excelled them in knowledge, and was greater than they, as Jacchiades; though not of their rank and order, which Daniel would have scorned to have been among, and reckoned of; so that this would have been no compliment, but a grief unto him; or because he was appointed by the king chief over them, and even over their governors; (See Gill on Daniel 2:48): because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee;
(See Gill on Daniel 4:8); and no secret troubleth thee;
any ways perplexes thy mind to find it out; it is easy to thee to come at; it gives thee no manner of trouble to get knowledge of it; there is no secret hidden from thee; all is plain before thee, and with the utmost facility canst thou reveal it: tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen;
that is, the meaning of them; for the king remembered this his dream, and afterwards tells it very particularly: and the interpretation of it;
it may be rendered, "that is, the interpretation of it" F8; for that only was what the king wanted.

Daniel 4:9 In-Context

7 When the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners came, I told them the dream, but they could not interpret it for me.
8 Finally, Daniel came into my presence and I told him the dream. (He is called Belteshazzar, after the name of my god, and the spirit of the holy gods is in him.)
9 I said, “Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in you, and no mystery is too difficult for you. Here is my dream; interpret it for me.
10 These are the visions I saw while lying in bed: I looked, and there before me stood a tree in the middle of the land. Its height was enormous.
11 The tree grew large and strong and its top touched the sky; it was visible to the ends of the earth.
