Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:1 - It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty satraps, to be throughout the whole kingdom;

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:2 - and over them three presidents, of whom Daniel was one, to whom these satraps should give account, so that the king might suffer no loss.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:3 - Then this Daniel became distinguished above all the other presidents and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:4 - Then the presidents and the satraps sought to find a ground for complaint against Daniel with regard to the kingdom; but they could find no ground for complaint or any fault, because he was faithful, and no error or fault was found in him.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:5 - Then these men said, "We shall not find any ground for complaint against this Daniel unless we find it in connection with the law of his God."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:6 - Then these presidents and satraps came by agreement to the king and said to him, "O King Darius, live for ever!

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:7 - All the presidents of the kingdom, the prefects and the satraps, the counselors and the governors are agreed that the king should establish an ordinance and enforce an interdict, that whoever makes petition to any god or man for thirty days, except to you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:8 - Now, O king, establish the interdict and sign the document, so that it cannot be changed, according to the law of the Medes and the Persians, which cannot be revoked."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:9 - Therefore King Darius signed the document and interdict.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:10 - When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem; and he got down upon his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:12 - Then they came near and said before the king, concerning the interdict, "O king! Did you not sign an interdict, that any man who makes petition to any god or man within thirty days except to you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions?" The king answered, "The thing stands fast, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be revoked."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:13 - Then they answered before the king, "That Daniel, who is one of the exiles from Judah, pays no heed to you, O king, or the interdict you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:14 - Then the king, when he heard these words, was much distressed, and set his mind to deliver Daniel; and he labored till the sun went down to rescue him.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:15 - Then these men came by agreement to the king, and said to the king, "Know, O king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians that no interdict or ordinance which the king establishes can be changed."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:16 - Then the king commanded, and Daniel was brought and cast into the den of lions. The king said to Daniel, "May your God, whom you serve continually, deliver you!"

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:17 - And a stone was brought and laid upon the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet and with the signet of his lords, that nothing might be changed concerning Daniel.

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

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

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:20 - When he came near to the den where Daniel was, he cried out in a tone of anguish and said to Daniel, "O Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?"

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:21 - Then Daniel said to the king, "O king, live for ever!

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:22 - My God sent his angel and shut the lions' mouths, and they have not hurt me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no wrong."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:23 - Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of hurt was found upon him, because he had trusted in his God.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:24 - And the king commanded, and those men who had accused Daniel were brought and cast into the den of lions--they, their children, and their wives; and before they reached the bottom of the den the lions overpowered them and broke all their bones in pieces.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:25 - Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: "Peace be multiplied to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:26 - I make a decree, that in all my royal dominion men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel, for he is the living God, enduring for ever; his kingdom shall never be destroyed, and his dominion shall be to the end.

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:27 - He delivers and rescues, he works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth, he who has saved Daniel from the power of the lions."

Unchecked Copy BoxDan 6:28 - So this Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
