And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom,
&c.] That is, a large, powerful, and glorious kingdom; not but that he had a kingdom before, but now it will be more extensive, and appear in greater glory: this will be fulfilled when the kingdoms of this world shall become his, and all nations shall serve and worship him, ( Revelation 11:15 ) ( Revelation 15:3 Revelation 15:4 ) , as follows: that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him;
embrace his Gospel, submit to his ordinances serve and worship him in every religious duty; every people, of all nations, and of every language under heaven; which will be the case when the everlasting Gospel will be preached to them all with success, ( Revelation 14:6 ) ( Psalms 72:11 ) : his dominion is an everlasting dominion;
it shall never have an end, as the rest of the monarchies, signified by the four beasts, have had, or will have; see ( Psalms 14:6 ) ( Isaiah 9:7 ) : which shall not pass away;
or be removed from one to another, like the above monarchies: and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed;
or "corrupted" F26 abolished and brought to nothing, as the said monarchies were one by another; and, at last, all of them by the stone cut out of the mountain; see ( Daniel 2:44 ) .
