We very often under estimate the age of Daniel and when he made representation to King Nebuchadnezzar - but looking at Dr Andy Woods' table above we can see that the teenage had wonderful insight into God's will and gumption enough to apply the precepts of the Lord. He also lived for as long as one does today, a blessing from God for his obedience, even in the face of death.
