Daniel, Additions to

Daniel, Additions to

Several stories, a prayer, and a hymn not found in the Hebrew text of Daniel, but present in the LXX, an ancient Greek version of the OT. These passages are the Song of the Three Children, Susanna, and Bel and the Dragon. Protestants have relegated the Additions to the Apocrypha, while Catholics retain them as part of Daniel.
