    Clarke's Commentary on Daniel 8:15

    As the appearance of a man - Supposed to be the Messiah.

    Barnes' Notes on Daniel 8:15

    And it came to pass ... - Daniel saw the vision, but was unable to explain it.

    And sought for the meaning - Evidently by meditating on it, or endeavoring in his own mind to make it out.

    There stood before me as the appearance of a man - One having the appearance of a man. This was evidently Gabriel Daniel 8:16, who now assumed a human form, and who was addressed by the voice from between the banks of the Ulai, and commenced to make known the meaning of the vision.

    Wesley's Notes on Daniel 8:15

    8:15 The meaning - A more clear discovery of those things. The appearance of a man - Probably Gabriel.
