New Defender's Study Bible Notes
6:16 den of lions. Excavations among the ruins of Babylon uncovered this den, containing an inscription indicating that this was where “wild beasts” killed “men who anger the king.”
6:22 his angel. Angels are ministering spirits to believers, and are very powerful and wise. Many of the Bible’s miracles, such as this, involve intervention by angels in the timing or rates of otherwise natural events and processes.
