Daniel 7:21 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them - Those who make Antiochus the little horn, make the saints the Jewish people.

Christ's Own Testimony Concerning Himself.
THERE is but one rational explanation, of this sublime mystery; and this is found in Christ's own testimony concerning his superhuman and divine origin and character.[49]49 This testimony challenges at once our highest regard and belief from the absolute veracity which no one ever denied him, or could deny, without destroying at once the very foundation of his universally conceded moral purity and greatness.
