BELTESHAZZAR . Nebuchadnezzar is said to have conferred this name on the youthful Daniel ( Daniel 1:7 ). The Babylonian form would be Balatsu-usur (“protect his life!”) or, according to Daniel 4:8 , Bel balatsu-usur . The LXX [Note: Septuagint.] and Theodotion employ Baltasar both for it and for Belshazzar (ch. 5); and pseudo-Epiphanius repeats a legend that Nebuchadnezzar wished to make the two men co-heirs.
