In the beginning of the book of Daniel, there is the story of Daniel, Hanania, Mishael, and Azaria's survival on vegetables and water. From this, it is established that they attempted to keep the commandments while living under Babylonian captivity.
Later, there is the story of Nebuchadnezzar forcing his subjects to bow to golden image. From what I understand, the Chaldeans accuse the Jews of ignoring this edit and complain that:
There are certain Jews whom thou hast appointed over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.' (3:12)
Only Hanania, Mishael, and Azaria are named as prominent examples of those who have disobeyed the king and who should be punished. Yet Daniel was accorded much respect after he interpreted Nebuchadnezzar's first dream:
Then the king made Daniel great, and gave him many great gifts, and made him to rule over the whole province of Babylon, and to be chief prefect over all the wise men of Babylon. (2:48-49)
If so, why wasn't Daniel named in the Chaldeans' complaint?
