gifts, rewards, and great honor

“ ‘Rewards’ literally is a singular Aramaic noun that may imply some specific reward, maybe a promotion or marriage to one of the king’s daughters.”1 Honor is יְקָר [yeqār] , translated as “glory” in some other passages (Dan. 2:37+; 4:36+; 5:18+, 20+; 7:14+). Belshazzar will subsequently make a similar offer to his wise men and also to Daniel (Dan. 5:7+, 16+, 29+). The Moabites attempted to hire Balaam with a diviner’s fee and promise of honor (Num. 22:7, 17, 37; 24:11).
