 Evil Merodach and Daniel-Conspiracy in Babylon - Above Top Secret Conspiracy Community

The supreme Babylonian deity Marduk, an old Sumerian sun-god specifically associated with the city of Babylon, had no place in the pantheon of the Arabians and the Arameans; it was otherwise with the moon-god, who, under various names, was highly honored by these peoples.
In the latter part of the second millenium, Marduk of Babylon achieved a position of supremacy in the pantheon and became the national god of Babylonia.
As the 'Lord' par excellence, Marduk received the title Bel, 'Lord', just as Ishtar was often caused simply Belit, 'Lady', and under this name he is mentioned in the Old Testament (Isaiah 46:1) and in the amusing book of Bel and the Dragon in the Apocrypha.

 Neo-Babylon, Daniel
It is obvious that the building projects of Nebuchadnezzar were quite impressive, but what can be learned of the man? It is known that he was great military leader in his campaigns to Carchemish; he followed the fleeing Egyptians to Hamath in Syria, where he conquered "the whole land of Hatti," which included Judah.
His boastfulness, as recorded in Daniel 4:30, is probably a direct result of his pride in his capital city of Babylon and his later accomplishments at the city of Ur, which he rebuilt.
He believes that the object of adoration was probably an image of Marduk and not of himself; when people bowed down to the image they pledged their loyalty and allegiance to it and what it represents.
