Daniel prospered (Dan 6:28-6:28)

“Thus,

Daniel prospered

During the reign of Darius,

As well as the reign of Cyrus

Of Persia.”

Cyrus (559-530 BCE) clearly was a historical figure from Persia, who took over Babylon in 539 BCE. Darius I (522-486 BCE) actually came later. However, Daniel prospered under them both, just as he had under the Babylonian kings, much like Joseph under the Egyptian Pharaohs.
