strkjv@Daniel:6:1 @ It pleased sh@ Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
strkjv@Daniel:6:2 @ And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give y@ accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage n@.
strkjv@Daniel:6:3 @ Then this Daniel was preferred n@ above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
strkjv@Daniel:6:4 @ Then the presidents and princes sought to find sh@ occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could y@ find sh@ none occasion nor fault sh@; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault sh@ found sh@ in him.
strkjv@Daniel:6:5 @ Then said these men, We shall not find sh@ any occasion against this Daniel, except we find sh@ it against him concerning the law of his God.
strkjv@Daniel:6:6 @ Then these presidents and princes assembled together r@ to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
strkjv@Daniel: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 t@ decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast r@ into the den of lions.
strkjv@Daniel:6:8 @ Now k@, O king, establish the decree, and sign r@ the writing, that it be not changed sh@, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
strkjv@Daniel:6:9 @ Wherefore king Darius signed r@ the writing and the decree.
strkjv@Daniel:6:10 @ Now when Daniel knew y@ that the writing was signed r@, he went into his house; and his windows being open p@ in his chamber toward Jerusalem Y@ruwshalem (Chald), he kneeled b@ upon his knees three times a day, and prayed ts@, and gave thanks y@ before his God, as q@ he did aforetime .
strkjv@Daniel:6:11 @ Then these men assembled r@, and found sh@ Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
strkjv@Daniel:6:12 @ Then they came near q@, and spake before the king concerning the kings decree; Hast thou not signed r@ 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 r@ 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.
strkjv@Daniel: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 r@, but maketh his petition three times a day.
strkjv@Daniel:6:14 @ Then the king, when he heard sh@ these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver sh@ him: and he laboured sh@ till the going down of the sun to deliver n@ him.
strkjv@Daniel:6:15 @ Then these men assembled r@ unto the king, and said unto the king, Know y@, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed sh@.
strkjv@Daniel:6:16 @ Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast r@ him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest p@ continually, he will deliver sh@ thee.
strkjv@Daniel: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 the purpose might not be changed sh@ concerning Daniel.
strkjv@Daniel: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 n@ from him.
strkjv@Daniel:6:19 @ Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste b@ unto the den of lions.
strkjv@Daniel:6:20 @ And when he came q@ to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest p@ continually, able y@ to deliver sh@ thee from the lions?
strkjv@Daniel:6:21 @ Then said m@ Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
strkjv@Daniel:6:22 @ My God hath sent sh@ his angel, and hath shut c@ the lions mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found sh@ in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
strkjv@Daniel:6:23 @ Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up n@ out of the den. So Daniel was taken up n@ out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found sh@ upon him, because he believed in his God.
strkjv@Daniel:6:24 @ And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast r@ them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery H7981 sh@ of them, and brake all their bones in pieces d@ or ever they came m@ at the bottom of the den.
strkjv@Daniel:6:25 @ Then king Darius wrote k@ unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied s@ unto you.
strkjv@Daniel:6:26 @ I make a decree t@, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear d@ 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.
strkjv@Daniel:6:27 @ He delivereth sh@ and rescueth n@, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered sh@ Daniel from the power of the lions.
strkjv@Daniel:6:28 @ So this Daniel prospered ts@ in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
