    Clarke's Commentary on Daniel 12:5

    Behold there stood other two - Probably two angels. We know no more of them, unless they be the same as those called saints, Daniel 8:13 (note), which see. The river was most likely the Tigris.

    Barnes' Notes on Daniel 12:5

    Then I Daniel looked - My attention was attracted in a new direction. Hitherto, it would seem, it had been fixed on the angel, and on what he was saying. The angel now informed him that he had closed his communication, and Daniel was now attracted by a new heavenly vision.

    And, behold, there stood other two - Two other angels. The connection requires us to understand this of angels, though they are not expressly called so.

    The one on this side of the bank of the river - Margin, as in Hebrew, "lip." The word is used to denote the bank of the river from its resemblance to a lip. The river referred to here is the Hiddekel or Tigris, the notes at Daniel 10:4. These angels stood on each side of the river, though it does not appear that there was any special significancy in that fact. It perhaps contributed merely to the majesty and solemnity of the vision. The names of these angels are not mentioned, and their appearing is merely an indication of the interest which they take in the affairs of men, and in the Divine purposes and doings. They came heine as if they had been deeply interested listeners to what the angel had been saying, and for the purpose of making inquiry as to the final result of all these wonderful events. The angel which had been addressing Daniel stood over the river, Daniel 12:6.

    Wesley's Notes on Daniel 12:5

    12:5 Other two - Two angels waiting on Christ.
