"...with the arms of a flood shall... overflown..."

  • "Arms" denotes power, and here, particularly, military power (Daniel 11:6 and Daniel 11:15). The picture is evidently that of floodlike armies of soldiers (Daniel 9:26). Tiberius was eminently successful in leading several military campaigns, both in Germany and in the East on the frontiers of Armenia and Parthia. (4BC 870)

"...also the prince of the covenant."

  • Identical with the Prince who confirms the covenant in Daniel 9:25-27 (Daniel 8:11). That this was the Messiah, Jesus Christ, is clear from the prophecy of Daniel 9. It was when Tiberius reigned (A.D. 14-37), and upon the order of his procurator of Judea, Pontius Pilate, that Jesus was crucified, in the year A.D. 31. (4BC 870)
