DANIEL 3-4:
Matthew Henry describes the parts of the statue in Daniel 2:

  1. The head of gold signified the Chaldean empire, then in being. 2. The breast and arms of silver signified the empire of the Medes and Persians.
    3. The belly and thighs of brass signified the Grecian empire, founded by Alexander.
    4. The legs and feet of iron signified the Roman empire. The Roman empire branched into ten kingdoms, as the toes of [the//these] feet [of the statue]. Some were weak as clay, others strong as iron. Endeavours [were made] to unite them, for strengthening the empire, but in vain. The stone cut out without hands, represented the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, which [will//should] be set up in the kingdoms of the world, upon the ruins of Satan's kingdom in them. This was the Stone which the builders refused, because it was not cut out by their hands, but it is become the head stone of the corner. Of the increase of Christ's government and peace there shall be no end. The Lord shall reign, not only to the end of time, but when time and days shall be no more. As far as events have gone, the fulfilling this prophetic vision has been most exact and undeniable; future ages shall witness this Stone destroying the image, and filling the whole earth.

ISAIAH 24:
Yesterday we heard the oracle against the proud seafaring city-state of Tyre.

2CORINTHIANS 4:105:15:
One of the hard things about 2 Corinthians for a translator is that ‘we’ in Greek is just like ‘we’ in English. The two languages do not distinguish between ‘we-speakers-excluding-listeners’ and ‘we-inclusive-of-listeners’. So which is it in places like this? Well, primarily in chapter 4, I think that Paul is talking about ‘we apostles’ in this section. (Notice how the ‘we’ contrasts with ‘you/your’ in verses 12 and 15.) Note that analyzing Paul’s meaning that way does not mean that we can’t take what Paul says about himself and his friends and apply it to us as our ideal. Let’s determine to be like Paul in things like “fixing our gaze on things we cannot see.”

But in chapter 5, I believe Paul’s use of ‘we’ is inclusive of his hearers. We all have bodies that Paul pictures as our ‘earthly tent’.

GNT Translation notes:
Dan. 3:17 [NLT If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty.//GNT If the God whom we serve is able to save us from the blazing furnace and from your power, then he will. [And see the footnote in the GNT.]

====

2Cor. 5:7 For our life is a matter of [believing//faith], not of [seeing//sight].
13 Are we really insane? [If so,] It is for God's sake. Or are we sane? Then it is for your sake.
