A Daniel come to judgement

Meaning 含义

Someone who makes a wise judgment about something that has previously proven difficult to resolve.
某人对先前难以解决的事情做出了睿智的了断。


Origin 来源

This doubtless alludes to the biblical character Daniel, who was attributed with fine powers of judgment. In Daniel 5:14 (King James Version) we have:

I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found in thee.

The first use of the phrase as we now know it is from Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, 1596:

SHYLOCK:
A Daniel come to judgment! yea, a Daniel!
O wise young judge, how I do honour thee!
