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 remnant, and the Aramaic portions have primarily to do with gentile dominion.
Dreams and Visions. The first half of the book (ch.1-6) have to do with dreams and visions given to the Gentile monarchs, and the meaning of them. From ch. 7-12 we have dreams and visions that were given directly to Daniel.
