13 “I kept looking in the night visions, And behold, [a]on the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days And was presented before Him.
Daniel 7:13As a matter of discussion, one of the ancient rabbis noted an apparent contradiction between the Messiah’s majestic return with clouds in this verse and His humble return on a donkey in Zech 9:9. The solution given was that if Israel is worthy of Him, the Messiah will return with the clouds; if not, He will return on a donkey.
5 I raised my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a [a]certain man dressed in linen, whose loins were girded with [a [b]belt of] pure gold of Uphaz.
Daniel 10:5This is most likely the angel Gabriel since he was the heavenly being sent by God to Daniel on the previous occasions.
Daniel 10:5Over a man’s outer garment a type of belt or girdle was worn around the loins (the midsection of the body between the lower ribs and the hips) and was normally made of leather. Expensive or embroidered girdles were also worn and were made of cotton, flax or silk. The girdle also served as a kind of pocket or pouch and was used to carry personal items such as a dagger, money or other necessary things.
