Daniel - God is my judge

Daniel was a Hebrew prophet, contemporary of Ezekiel about 600 B.C. He was among the Hebrew noblemen carried to Babylon in the fourth year of king Jehoiakim, and was selected for the highest education among the Chaldeans by order of the Court. Although he was a prophet of the colonized Jews, he was advanced to high political positions by Nebuchadnezzar, and later by Darius of the Medo-Persian Empire. He was famed for the interpretation of dreams and visions, as narrated in the Fifteenth Degree of the Scottish Rite. His name, with that of "Darius" is a counter-sign in the Thirty-Second Degree, Scottish Rite.
