Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Daniel 10:16

_ _ touched my lips — the same significant action wherewith the Son of man accompanied His healing of the dumb (Mark 7:33). He alone can give spiritual utterance (Isaiah 6:6, Isaiah 6:7; Ephesians 6:19), enabling one to “open the mouth boldly.” The same one who makes dumb (Daniel 10:15) opens the mouth.

_ _ sorrows — literally, “writhings” as of a woman in travail.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Daniel 10:10-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Daniel 10:16

One like the sons of men — This likewise seems to have been Gabriel. I have retained no strength — Tho' he appeared to him, and spake to him as a man, yet Daniel could not bear his presence, without some dread.
