Abstract In an accompanying article the method of semiotics is described and applied in relation to Daniel 1. In this article Daniel 2 is semiotically analysed. The narrative uses ring composition to emphasize that God is able to reveal secrets. Daniel 2 is characterized by more qualifications than functions, attributable to the length of the narrative but also to the long description of the dream and its interpretation. Transformations can be found in the conversation between the king and his wise men, the law of the king, the conversation between Daniel and Arioch, the prayer of the four Jews, the revelation of the dream to them, their song of praise, and Daniel’s conversation with the king. The dreams’ transformation lies in God’s destroying and absorption of the previous kingdoms. The plot lies in the engagement between the king and his wise men, and in the dream and its interpretation. As is the case in Daniel 1, the author emphasized the sovereignty of God and the responsibility of believers as main values.
