Isaiah viewed even defensive military strategy as atheism (Isa. 22:8-11; 30:15-18) and longed for peaceful ways (2:2-4; 9:6-7; 11:9). At no point in Daniel does God appear as a divine warrior or act like one. At times in the OT, God is seen as a soldier (Exod. 15:3; Isa. 42:13, 25; 59:15b-19; 63:1-6), and this imagery passed into apocalyptic material, but not in Daniel. In this book, warfare and commotion are characteristics of beastly kings that emerge from the sea of chaos and evil. Instead of an evolutionary upward movement, the kingdoms of humanity are declining and becoming ever more inhumane.
Between these pictures of the kingdom of God at the beginning and at the end of the tract, kings and kingdoms are confronted by the God of Israel through his faithful servants. In chapter 3, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (renamed, 1:7) refuse to bow to Nebuchadnezzar's image of gold. Their faithfulness and subsequent deliverance from the fiery furnace leads Nebuchadnezzar to issue a decree warning any people, nation, or language about disrespect, and affirming that there is no other god who is able to deliver in this way (3:29).
