Daniel 1

In the third
<07969>
year
<08141>
of the reign
<04438>
of Jehoiakim
<03079>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
came
<0935> (8804)
Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>
king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
unto Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and besieged
<06696> (8799)
it.
And the Lord
<0136>
gave
<05414> (8799)
Jehoiakim
<03079>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
into his hand
<03027>_,
with part
<07117>
of the vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_:
which he carried
<0935> (8686)
into the land
<0776>
of Shinar
<08152>
to the house
<01004>
of his god
<0430>_;
and he brought
<0935> (8689)
the vessels
<03627>
into the treasure
<0214>
house
<01004>
of his god
<0430>_.
And the king
<04428>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto Ashpenaz
<0828>
the master
<07227>
of his eunuchs
<05631>_,
that he should bring
<0935> (8687)
[certain] of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and of the king's
<04410>
seed
<02233>_,
and of the princes
<06579>_;
Children
<03206>
in whom [was] no blemish
<03971> (8675) <03971>_,
but well
<02896>
favoured
<04758>_,
and skilful
<07919> (8688)
in all wisdom
<02451>_,
and cunning
<03045> (8802)
in knowledge
<01847>_,
and understanding
<0995> (8688)
science
<04093>_,
and such as [had] ability
<03581>
in them to stand
<05975> (8800)
in the king's
<04428>
palace
<01964>_,
and whom they might teach
<03925> (8763)
the learning
<05612>
and the tongue
<03956>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_.
And the king
<04428>
appointed
<04487> (8762)
them a daily
<03117> <03117>
provision
<01697>
of the king's
<04428>
meat
<06598>_,
and of the wine
<03196>
which he drank
<04960>_:
so nourishing
<01431> (8763)
them three
<07969>
years
<08141>_,
that at the end
<07117>
thereof they might stand
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
{the wine...: Heb. the wine of his drink}
Now among these were of the children
<01121>
of Judah
<03063>_,
Daniel
<01840>_,
Hananiah
<02608>_,
Mishael
<04332>_,
and Azariah
<05838>_:
Unto whom the prince
<08269>
of the eunuchs
<05631>
gave
<07760> (8799)
names
<08034>_:
for he gave
<07760> (8799)
unto Daniel
<01840>
[the name] of Belteshazzar
<01095>_;
and to Hananiah
<02608>_,
of Shadrach
<07714>_;
and to Mishael
<04332>_,
of Meshach
<04335>_;
and to Azariah
<05838>_,
of Abednego
<05664>_.
But Daniel
<01840>
purposed
<07760> (8799)
in his heart
<03820>
that he would not defile
<01351> (8691)
himself with the portion
<06598> (0)
of the king's
<04428>
meat
<06598>_,
nor with the wine
<03196>
which he drank
<04960>_:
therefore he requested
<01245> (8762)
of the prince
<08269>
of the eunuchs
<05631>
that he might not defile
<01351> (8691)
himself.
Now God
<0430>
had brought
<05414> (8799)
Daniel
<01840>
into favour
<02617>
and tender love
<07356>
with
<06440>
the prince
<08269>
of the eunuchs
<05631>_.
And the prince
<08269>
of the eunuchs
<05631>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Daniel
<01840>_,
I fear
<03373>
my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
who hath appointed
<04487> (8765)
your meat
<03978>
and your drink
<04960>_:
for why should he see
<07200> (8799)
your faces
<06440>
worse liking
<02196> (8802)
than the children
<03206>
which [are] of your sort
<01524>_?
then shall ye make [me] endanger
<02325> (8765)
my head
<07218>
to the king
<04428>_.
{worse...: Heb. sadder} {sort: or, term, or, continuance?}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Daniel
<01840>
to Melzar
<04453>_,
whom the prince
<08269>
of the eunuchs
<05631>
had set
<04487> (8765)
over Daniel
<01840>_,
Hananiah
<02608>_,
Mishael
<04332>_,
and Azariah
<05838>_,
{Melzar: or, the steward}
Prove
<05254> (8761)
thy servants
<05650>_,
I beseech thee, ten
<06235>
days
<03117>_;
and let them give
<05414> (8799)
us pulse
<02235>
to eat
<0398> (8799)_,
and water
<04325>
to drink
<08354> (8799)_.
{pulse: Heb. of pulse} {to eat...: Heb. that we may eat, etc}
Then let our countenances
<04758>
be looked upon
<07200> (8735)
before
<06440>
thee, and the countenance
<04758>
of the children
<03206>
that eat
<0398> (8802)
of the portion
<06598> (0)
of the king's
<04428>
meat
<06598>_:
and as thou seest
<07200> (8799)_,
deal
<06213> (8798)
with thy servants
<05650>_.
So he consented
<08085> (8799)
to them in this matter
<01697>_,
and proved
<05254> (8762)
them ten
<06235>
days
<03117>_.
And at the end
<07117>
of ten
<06235>
days
<03117>
their countenances
<04758>
appeared
<07200> (8738)
fairer
<02896>
and fatter
<01277>
in flesh
<01320>
than all the children
<03206>
which did eat
<0398> (8802)
the portion
<06598> (0)
of the king's
<04428>
meat
<06598>_.
Thus Melzar
<04453>
took away
<05375> (8802)
the portion of their meat
<06598>_,
and the wine
<03196>
that they should drink
<04960>_;
and gave
<05414> (8802)
them pulse
<02235>_.
As for these four
<0702>
children
<03206>_,
God
<0430>
gave
<05414> (8804)
them knowledge
<04093>
and skill
<07919> (8687)
in all learning
<05612>
and wisdom
<02451>_:
and Daniel
<01840>
had understanding
<0995> (8689)
in all visions
<02377>
and dreams
<02472>_.
{Daniel...: or, he made Daniel understand}
Now at the end
<07117>
of the days
<03117>
that the king
<04428>
had said
<0559> (8804)
he should bring
<0935> (8687)
them in, then the prince
<08269>
of the eunuchs
<05631>
brought
<0935> (8686)
them in before
<06440>
Nebuchadnezzar
<05019>_.
And the king
<04428>
communed
<01696> (8762)
with them; and among them all was found
<04672> (8738)
none like Daniel
<01840>_,
Hananiah
<02608>_,
Mishael
<04332>_,
and Azariah
<05838>_:
therefore stood
<05975> (8799)
they before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
And in all matters
<01697>
of wisdom
<02451>
[and] understanding
<0998>_,
that the king
<04428>
enquired
<01245> (8765)
of them, he found
<04672> (8799)
them ten times
<06235>
better
<03027>
than all the magicians
<02748>
[and] astrologers
<0825>
that [were] in all his realm
<04438>_.
{wisdom...: Heb. wisdom of understanding}
And Daniel
<01840>
continued [even] unto the first
<0259>
year
<08141>
of king
<04428>
Cyrus
<03566>_.
