Daniel 6:1

Context
Daniel is Thrown into a Lions’ Den

6:1 It seemed like a good idea to Darius 3  to appoint over the kingdom 120 satraps 4  who would be in charge of the entire kingdom.

1 tn Aram “from me there was placed a decree.”

2 tn The Aramaic infinitive here is active.

3 tn Aram “It was pleasing before Darius.”

4 tn This is a technical term for an official placed in charge of a region of the empire (cf. KJV, NLT “prince[s]”; NCV, TEV “governors”). These satraps were answerable to a supervisor, who in turn answered to Darius.
