Daniel
Daniel, says Abp. Newcombe, was "taken captive in the third year of Jehoiakim, (Da 1:1.) After this, Jehoiakam reigned eight years, (2 Ki 23:36.) And this prophecy, as appears from ch. 8:1, was uttered in the sixth year of Jehoiachin's captivity, who succeeded Jehoiakim, and reigned only three months, (2 Ki 24:6, 8.) Therefore, at this time, Daniel had been fourteen years in captivity;" and was, as is generally supposed, about thirty years of age.
