According to traditional chronology, Daniel lived from about 435 BCE to about 340 BCE. His gravesite is known to this day, in Susa, Iran.

Ch.1 - Daniel in Nevuchadnezzar's palace; insists on kosher food.

Ch.2 - Daniel interprets the king's (Nevuchadnezzar's) dream, of a beast made of gold, silver, brass, iron and clay. It hints to four kingdoms.

Ch.3 - Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, Daniel's young friends, refuse to bow to a statue put up by the king. They are cast into a furnace but God prevents the fire from burning them.

Ch.4 - The king dreams of a great tree cut down and a man humbled by losing his sanity and living among the animals. Daniel tells him that this would befall him, the king; and it came true.

Ch.5 - The Chaldean king Belshazzar sees a disembodied hand writing on a wall. Daniel tells him that the mysterious words hint that his (Belshazzar's) rule will not last. Belshazzar is killed that very night.

Ch.6 - Daniel continues his regular prayers despite a decree forbidding such prayers. The king, Darius, has him tossed among hungry lions, but God prevents them from harming him.

Ch.7 - Daniel dreams of four strange beasts, hinting to four kingdoms.

Ch.8 - Daniel has a vision of a ram and a goat, hinting to Persia, Medea and Greece.

Ch.9 - Daniel prays to God.

Ch.10 - Daniel speaks to the angel.

Ch.11 - The angel tells Daniel of future wars between kings.

Ch.12 - Daniel is told that the meaning of the prophecy will remain hidden until the end-times.
