Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:1 - [fn]It seemed good to Darius to appoint 120 satraps over the kingdom, that they would be in charge of the whole kingdom,

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:2 - and over them three commissioners (of whom Daniel was one), that these satraps might be accountable to them, and that the king might not suffer loss.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:3 - Then this Daniel began distinguishing himself [fn]among the commissioners and satraps because [fn]he possessed an extraordinary spirit, and the king planned to appoint him over the entire kingdom.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:4 - Then the commissioners and satraps began trying to find a ground of accusation against Daniel in regard to [fn]government affairs; but they could find no ground of accusation or evidence of corruption, inasmuch as he was faithful, and no negligence or corruption was to be found in him.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:5 - Then these men said, “We will not find any ground of accusation against this Daniel unless we find it against him with regard to the law of his God.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:6 - Then these commissioners and satraps came [fn]by agreement to the king and spoke to him as follows: “King Darius, live forever!

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:7 - “All the commissioners of the kingdom, the prefects and the satraps, the high officials and the governors have consulted together that the king should establish a statute and enforce an injunction that anyone who makes a petition to any god or man besides you, O king, for thirty days, shall be cast into the lions’ [fn]den.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:8 - “Now, O king, establish the injunction and sign the document so that it may not be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which [fn]may not be revoked.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:9 - Therefore King Darius signed the document, that is, the injunction.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:10 - Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, [fn]as he had been doing previously.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:11 - Then these men came [fn]by agreement and found Daniel making petition and supplication before his God.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:12 - Then they approached and spoke before the king about the king’s injunction, “Did you not sign an injunction that any man who makes a petition to any god or man besides you, O king, for thirty days, is to be cast into the lions’ den?” The king replied, “The statement is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which [fn]may not be revoked.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:13 - Then they answered and spoke before the king, “Daniel, who is one of the [fn]exiles from Judah, pays no attention to you, O king, or to the injunction which you signed, but keeps making his petition three times a day.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:14 - Then, as soon as the king heard this statement, he was deeply distressed and set his mind on delivering Daniel; and even until sunset he kept exerting himself to rescue him.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:15 - Then these men came [fn]by agreement to the king and said to the king, “Recognize, O king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians that no injunction or statute which the king establishes may be changed.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:16 - Then the king gave orders, and Daniel was brought in and cast into the lions’ den. The king spoke and said to Daniel, “[fn]Your God whom you constantly serve will Himself deliver you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:17 - A stone was brought and laid over the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signet rings of his nobles, so that nothing would be changed in regard to Daniel.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:18 - Then the king went off to his palace and spent the night fasting, and no entertainment was brought before him; and his sleep fled from him.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:19 - Then the king arose at dawn, at the break of day, and went in haste to the lions’ den.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:20 - When he had come near the den to Daniel, he cried out with a troubled voice. The king spoke and said to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you constantly serve, been able to deliver you from the lions?”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:21 - Then Daniel spoke [fn]to the king, “O king, live forever!

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:22 - “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths and they have not harmed me, inasmuch as [fn]I was found innocent before Him; and also [fn]toward you, O king, I have committed no crime.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:23 - Then the king was very pleased and gave orders for Daniel to be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den and no injury whatever was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:24 - The king then gave orders, and they brought those men who had [fn]maliciously accused Daniel, and they cast them, their children and their wives into the lions’ den; and they had not reached the bottom of the den before the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:25 - Then Darius the king wrote to all the peoples, nations and men of every [fn]language who were living in all the land: “May your [fn]peace abound!

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:26 - [fn]I make a decree that in all the dominion of my kingdom men are to fear and tremble before the God of Daniel;
For He is the living God and enduring forever,
And His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed,
And His dominion will be [fn]forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:27 - “He delivers and rescues and performs signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has also delivered Daniel from the [fn]power of the lions.”

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:28 - So this Daniel enjoyed success in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
