Research Material

"...in haste..."

  • Possibly because of his great joy that the secret had been discovered. (4BC 770)

"...I have found..."

  • Arioch appears to take undeserved credit to himself, for his statement seems to imply that through strenuous efforts on his part he had discovered someone who could interpret the dream.... In this case his statement would be the natural way of announcing the discovery. (4BC 770)
  • It is ever a characteristic of ministers and courtiers to ingratiate themselves with their sovereign. So here Arioch represented that he had found a man who could make known the desired interpretation, as if with great disinterestedness in behalf of the king he had been searching for some one to solve his difficulty, and had at last found him.
