~ Daniel in the Den of Lions

Dan 6:1  It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;

Dan 6:2  And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.

Dan 6:3  Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.

Dan 6:4  Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.

Dan 6:5  Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.

Dan 6:6  Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.

Dan 6:7  All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.

Dan 6:8  Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.

Dan 6:9  Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.

Dan 6:10  Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

Dan 6:11  Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.

Dan 6:12  Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king's decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.

Dan 6:13  Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.

Dan 6:14  Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.

Dan 6:15  Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.

Dan 6:16  Then the king commanded [gave the order], and they brought Daniel, and cast [threw] him into the den of lions.  Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver [rescue] thee.  

Dan 6:17  And a stone was brought, and laid upon [placed over] the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet [ring], and with the signet [rings] of his lords; that the purpose [situation] might not be changed concerning Daniel.

Dan 6:18  Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him [he could not sleep].

Dan 6:19  Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste [hurried] unto the den of lions.

Dan 6:20  And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable [anguished] voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver [rescue] thee from the lions?

Dan 6:21  Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.

Dan 6:22  My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me [I was found innocent in his sight]; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt [nor have I ever done any wrong before you].

Dan 6:23  Then was the king exceeding glad [overjoyed] for him, and commanded that they should take [lift] Daniel up out of the den.  So Daniel was taken [lifted] up out of the den, and no manner of hurt [no wound] was found upon him, because he believed [trusted] in his God.

Dan 6:24  And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake [crushed] all their bones in pieces or ever [before] they came at [reached] the bottom [floor] of the den.

Dan 6:25  Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.

Dan 6:26  I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble [reverence] and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end [will never end].

Dan 6:27  He delivereth [rescues] and rescueth [saves], and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.

Dan 6:28  So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
