Daniel 2:15

Context
2:15 He inquired of Arioch the king’s deputy, “Why is the decree from the king so urgent?” 1  Then Arioch informed Daniel about the matter.

Daniel 5:29

Context

5:29 Then, on Belshazzar’s orders, 2  Daniel was clothed in purple, a golden collar was placed around his neck, and he was proclaimed third ruler in the kingdom.

1 tn The Aramaic word מְהַחְצְפָה (mÿhakhtsÿfah) may refer to the severity of the king’s decree (i.e., “harsh”; so HALOT 1879 s.v. חצף; BDB 1093 s.v. חֲצַף), although it would seem that in a delicate situation such as this Daniel would avoid this kind of criticism of the king’s actions. The translation above understands the word to refer to the immediacy, not harshness, of the decree. See further, F. Rosenthal, Grammar, 50, §116; E. Vogt, Lexicon linguae aramaicae, 67.

2 tn Aram “Belshazzar spoke.”
