Additions to the book of Daniel

Posted on Updated on

Additions to the book of Daniel

The Additions to Daniel comprise three chapters not found in the Hebrew/Aramaic text of Daniel.

The text of these chapters is found in the Koine Greek Septuagint, the earliest Old Greek translation.

They are accepted as canonical and translated as such in Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Bibles.

They are listed in Article VI of the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England.

Most Protestant Bibles exclude these passages as Biblical apocrypha, retaining only

the text available today in the Hebrew/Aramaic manuscripts.

The additions are:

  • The Prayer of Azariah and Song of the Three Holy Children :

 Daniel 3:24-90 inserted between verses 23 and 24 (v. 24 becomes v. 91) in the Protestant canon.

It incorporates the Fiery Furnace episode.

  • Susanna and the Elders :

 before Daniel 1:1, a prologue in early Greek manuscripts; chapter 13 in the Vulgate

  • Bel and the Dragon :

after Daniel 12:13 in Greek, an epilogue; chapter 14 in the Vulgate
