These passages are written in Aramaic.
The languages are closely related, indeed, but why the shift? Theories vary, but a lot of folks think that the portions of the book of Daniel intended specifically for Jews were written in Hebrew, while portions with a broader message to the nations were written in the language used across that world for diplomacy and commerce, which was Aramaic. When Nebuchadnezzar died, his son Belshazzar became King. He was followed by kings Darius and Cyrus. We know that Daniel remained in Babylon through the first year of the reign of King Cyrus Daniel You may have seen drawings of Daniel as a strapping young man looking peaceful in the midst of pacing, hungry lions.
The reality is that Daniel is estimated to have been in his early eighties when this event happened. He was also, by that point, so respected by his superiors that King Cyrus was planning to put Daniel in charge of the entire Kingdom. By the way, shortly after this event, King Cyrus allowed the Jews that Nebuchadnezzar brought to Babylon in captivity to return home to Jerusalem, instructing them to rebuild the temple of the God of Israel that Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed. Cyrus also returned more than priceless articles—including gold and silver dishes, pans, and bowls—that Nebuchadnezzar had stolen from the temple in Jerusalem 70 years earlier.
He even financed the whole thing, giving them whatever they needed—including bulls, rams, and lambs for burnt offerings; as well as wheat and oil and wine to sustain them—until the job was done Ezra In essence, King Cyrus did everything he could to undo the destruction that had been wrought upon the Temple by Nebuchadnezzar.
