View Wesley's Notes for Daniel 1:4

1:4 The learning and the tongue - The Chaldeans were skilled above any other nation, in natural philosophy. Their tongue differed from the Hebrew in dialect and in pronunciation, which they learned that they might be the more acceptable to the king, and court.

 

Patience's comment on 2012-11-24 09:32:20:

This book shows us how the people of Judah and king Nebuchadnezzar knew what these people had and used it to build his kingdom, mostly children that can stand in the king's presence just to encourage someone out there to stand whatsoever and be ready to learn the knowledge. Just read the book of Daniel if you want a library to study.
