Daniel 10:8 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The men that were with me saw not the vision - An exactly parallel case with what occurred at the conversion of Saul of Tarsus, Acts 9:7. There was a Divine influence which they all felt, but only Daniel saw the corporeal appearance.
