1:6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:
deported 8 years before Ezekiel. 2 Kings 24:1 2 Kings 24:2 ; 2 Chronicles 36:5-7 ; Jeremiah 25:1 ; Jeremiah 52:12-30 .
Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.
i.e. the king's leader, or attendant. Daniel 2:26 ; Daniel 4:8 Daniel 4:9 Daniel 4:18 Daniel 4:19 ; 5:12 . Identical in meaning with Belshazzar.
And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus.
i.e. to see the return of the remnant of Judah at the end of the 70 years, Jeremiah 25:11 Jeremiah 25:12 ; 29:10 . Daniel actually lived beyond the first year of Cyrus. Daniel 10:1 .
