In between first and second Peter we read two Psalms and the first chapter of Daniel
Psalm 143, of David. There is hope, even in the deepest despair.
Psalm 144, of David. He is a man of war, but gives praise to God with a new song for God is the one who grants victory.
Daniel 1. This book is most probably written by Daniel during his life. This has been questioned because of the many, accurate prophesies in it. It begins with Daniel and three other Hebrew children are taken into the Babylonian King’s administration as interns, and are given new names. They refuse the non- kosher diet, and pass the test.
