Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:1 - In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:2 - The Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the vessels of the house of God; and he brought them to the land of Shinar, to the house of his [fn]god, and he brought the vessels into the treasury of his [fn]god.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:3 - Then the king [fn]ordered Ashpenaz, the chief of his [fn]officials, to bring in some of the sons of Israel, including some of the [fn]royal family and of the nobles,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:4 - youths in whom was no defect, who were good-looking, showing intelligence in every branch of wisdom, endowed with understanding and discerning knowledge, and who had ability for [fn]serving in the king’s [fn]court; and he ordered him to teach them the [fn]literature and language of the Chaldeans.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:5 - The king appointed for them a daily ration from the king’s choice food and from the wine which he drank, and appointed that they should be [fn]educated three years, at the end of which they were to [fn]enter the king’s personal service.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:8 - But Daniel [fn]made up his mind that he would not defile himself with the king’s choice food or with the wine which he drank; so he sought permission from the commander of the officials that he might not defile himself.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:9 - Now God granted Daniel [fn]favor and compassion in the sight of the commander of the officials,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:10 - and the commander of the officials said to Daniel, “I am afraid of my lord the king, who has appointed your food and your drink; for why should he see your faces looking more haggard than the youths who are your own age? Then you would [fn]make me forfeit my head to the king.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:11 - But Daniel said to the overseer whom the commander of the officials had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:12 - “Please test your servants for ten days, and let us be given some vegetables to eat and water to drink.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:13 - “Then let our appearance be [fn]observed in your presence and the appearance of the youths who are eating the king’s choice food; and deal with your servants according to what you see.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:15 - At the end of ten days their appearance seemed better and [fn]they were fatter than all the youths who had been eating the king’s choice food.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:16 - So the overseer continued to [fn]withhold their choice food and the wine they were to drink, and kept giving them vegetables.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 1:17 - As for these four youths, God gave them knowledge and intelligence in every branch of [fn]literature and wisdom; Daniel even understood all kinds of visions and dreams.
