Daniel 8


Daniel 8

Daniel 8 is the eighth chapter of the Book of Daniel of the Hebrew Bible. This chapter concerns Daniel’s second vision. According to the text, Daniel received his vision in the third year of king Belshazzar. In his vision, he saw himself at Susa (Heb: "Shushan"), the capital[1] near the river Ulai. The canal is considered to have run along the north side of the fortress of Susa, a royal palace for the Persian kings of ancient Elam, just east of Babylonia.[2] From a source critical perspective, visionary experiences are frequently associated with riverbank settings.[1]
