Daniel 3:25-26

Context
3:25 He answered, “But I see four men, untied and walking around in the midst of the fire! No harm has come to them! And the appearance of the fourth is like that of a god!” 1  3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the furnace of blazing fire. He called out, 2  “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the most high God, come out! Come here!”

Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego emerged from the fire. 3 

1 sn The phrase like that of a god is in Aramaic “like that of a son of the gods.” Many patristic writers understood this phrase in a christological sense (i.e., “the Son of God”). But it should be remembered that these are words spoken by a pagan who is seeking to explain things from his own polytheistic frame of reference; for him the phrase “like a son of the gods” is equivalent to “like a divine being.”

2 tn Aram “answered and said.”

3 tn Aram “from the midst of the fire.” For stylistic reasons the words “the midst of” have been left untranslated.
