We could speculate as to why he was absent (e.g., is it not possible that Nebuchadnezzar sent him out of the country while he was planning this little shindig, because he knew that Daniel would raise a stink about its implications, possibly even calling on YHWH to get to the “body” of the statue of chapter 2? a. He served as a statesman, a counselor to kings, and a prophet of God 4. Dan 3 reveals more about the character of these three young men... a.

It seems likely the atrocities committed by the fourth beast refer to the Roman persecution of the early church, (cf. If it were solid, it would have contained 5,467 cubic feet of gold [assuming that it was not on a pedestal, I presume]; but all the gold produced in the past half-millennium (1493-1955), from the vast hordes of Mexico and Peru, California, Alaska, Australia, and South Africa, would bulk no larger than a fifty-foot cube (125,000 cubic feet), worth sixty billion dollars [at $35 an ounce?] Daniël was een jongeman uit Judea die net als veel van zijn landgenoten in de Babylonische ballingschap werd weggevoerd. 19. 251ff.). It would be natural for Daniel, who may have written or at least edited this passage after the Persian government had come to power, to bring the various offices up-to-date by using current expressions” (p. 82).

But the suggestion by Walvoord (though he does not prefer this view) that Daniel did not have scruples about bowing down before this image is unsatisfactory because (1) he, too, would see that the political act had religious ramifications; (2) his name was not present at the ceremony, and (3) it seems rather doubtful that Daniel would devote an entire chapter to the bravery of his companions if he did not share their convictions. 3 König Nebukadnẹzar machte eine Statue* aus Gold, die 60 Ellen* hoch und 6 Ellen* breit war.

Either Daniel considered this a political act which did not violate his conscience, or Daniel did not worship and his high office prevented his enemies from accusing him, or more probably, Daniel for some reason was absent. Further, the chronological sequence that the statue represented moved from top to bottom, from head to toes. Preliminary Considerations: When Did This Happen? Finally, we might add that the reason the Chaldeans bring up the matter of worshiping the gods is not due to anything transparent in the text. Daniel does, of course, say this to Darius [6:21], but it seems that this is an appropriate response of wish [in both places the verb is a pe’al imperative from חיה, which has the force of a wish, both in Aramaic and in Hebrew (see Alger Johns, A Short Grammar of Biblical Aramaic, p. 25; and GKC, pp. Add Bookmark.

Thus, the earlier date of Daniel seems to withstand the most rigorous test put forth. . . 3.
