Daniel 6:13

Daniel 6:24

Context
6:24 The king gave another order, 3  and those men who had maliciously accused 4  Daniel were brought and thrown 5  into the lions’ den – they, their children, and their wives. 6  They did not even reach the bottom of the den before the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.

1 tn Aram “from the sons of the captivity [of].”

2 tn Aram “prays his prayer.”

3 tn Aram “said.”

4 tn Aram “had eaten the pieces of.” The Aramaic expression is ironic, in that the accusers who had figuratively “eaten the pieces of Daniel” are themselves literally devoured by the lions.

5 tn The Aramaic active impersonal verb is often used as a substitute for the passive.

6 tc The LXX specifies only the two overseers, together with their families, as those who were cast into the lions’ den.
