Daniel:6:15
Then #H116 #edayin# these #H479 #illek# men #H1400 g@bar# assembled #H7284 r@gash# (8684) unto #H5922 #al# the king #H4430 melek#, and said #H560 #amar# (8750) unto the king #H4430 melek#, Know #H3046 y@da# (8747), O king #H4430 melek#, that the law #H1882 dath# of the Medes #H4076 Maday# and Persians #H6540 Parac# is, That no #H3606 kol# decree #H633 #ecar# nor statute #H7010 q@yam# which the king #H4430 melek# establisheth #H6966 quwm# (8681) may be changed #H8133 sh@na# (8682).
Daniel:6:16

Now the king #H4430 melek# spake #H6032 #anah# (8750) and said #H560 #amar# (8750) unto Daniel #H1841 Daniye#l#, Thy God #H426 #elahh# whom thou #H607 #antah# servest #H6399 p@lach# (8750) continually #H8411 t@diyra# , he will deliver #H7804 sh@zab# (8755) thee.
