Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:1 - It pleased Daryavesh to set over the kingdom one hundred twenty satraps, who should be throughout the whole kingdom;
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:2 - and over them three presidents, of whom Daniyel was one; that these satraps might give account to them, and that the king should have no damage.
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:3 - Then this Daniyel was distinguished above the presidents and the satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:4 - Then the presidents and the satraps sought to find occasion against Daniyel as touching the kingdom; but they could find no occasion nor fault, because he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:5 - Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniyel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:6 - Then these presidents and satraps assembled together to the king, and said thus to him, King Daryavesh, live forever.
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:7 - All the presidents of the kingdom, the deputies and the satraps, the counselors and the governors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a strong interdict, that whoever shall ask a petition of any god or man for thirty days, save of you, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:8 - Now, O king, establish the interdict, and sign the writing, that it not be changed, according to the law of the Madai and Paras, which doesn't alter.

The king answered, The thing is true, according to the law of the Madai and Paras, which doesn't alter.
Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:13 - Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniyel, who is of the children of the captivity of Yehudah, doesn't regard you, O king, nor the interdict that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:15 - Then these men assembled together to the king, and said to the king, Know, O king, that it is a law of the Madai and Paras, that no interdict nor statute which the king establishes may be changed.
