The Original Languages. From Daniel 1:1-2:3 the language employed is hebrew. But then the prophet switches to Chaldee (or aramaic) from Daniel 2:4 – ch.7. Then, from Daniel 8 – 12 he resumes with Hebrew. it is no coincidence that the hebrew portions have to do with the jewish remant, and the aramaic portions have primarily to do with gentile dominion.
