The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Structure.

Despite the differences between the two halves of the book (language, form, setting, mood), there are features that bind the book together. The two most obvious are the chronological settings: the stories are assigned individually to the kings from Nebuchadnezzar to Cyrus, and the visions recapitulate this sequence. An important structural role is also played by ch. 7 , which is bound to the preceding stories through its language (Aramaic) and its similarities with ch. 2 , while it shares the same form as chs. 8–12 and indeed sets the agenda for the visions that follow. Hence the HB book of Daniel seems to have an intentional unity—obscured by the Greek book with its closing ‘detective stories’.
