Margin, Daniel 11:38, "the god of forces," rather "of fortresses." The reference may be to the fact that Antiochus Epiphanes erected a temple to Jupiter Capitolinus at Antioch, and dedicated Jehovah's temple at Jerusalem to Jupiter Olympius (Livy 41:20; 2 Maccabees 6:2). Furst suggests Melkart the Hercules of Tyre, "the fortress" or "stronghold (ma'oz) of the sea." New Tyre was on a rock surrounded by the sea (Isaiah 23:4).
