The Prophet Daniel interpreted two dreams for Nebuchadnezzar, and later, during Belshazzar's feast, he interpreted the writing on the wall and prophesied the downfall of Babylonia to the Medes and Persians. At the accession of Darius, he was made first of the "three presidents" of the empire, and was delivered from the lions' den, into which he had been cast for his faithfulness to the rites of his faith.
During the rule of Cyrus, he still retained his prosperity, though he does not appear to have remained at Babylon. And in the "third year of Cyrus" he has his last recorded vision, on the banks of the Tigris River. From that period, the accounts respecting the Prophet Daniel are vague, sometimes confused, and even strange. Reports of his death were said to have taken place in Palestine, Babylon, or Susa. In the prophecies of Ezekiel, mention is made of Daniel as a pattern of righteousness and wisdom.
The Greek translation of Daniel contains several pieces which are not found in the original text. The most important are the Apocrypha of the English Bible. The first of these is supposed to be the triumphal song of the three confessors in the furnace praising God for their deliverance. The second, called also The Judgment of Daniel, related the story of the clearing of Susannah from a charge of adultery. And the third gives an exaggerated account of Daniel's deliverance.
