Daniel 6:14-16


6:14 When the king heard this, 1  he was very upset and began thinking about 2  how he might rescue Daniel. Until late afternoon 3  he was struggling to find a way to rescue him. 6:15 Then those men came by collusion to the king and 4  said to him, 5  “Recall, 6  O king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians that no edict or decree that the king issues can be changed.” 6:16 So the king gave the order, 7  and Daniel was brought and thrown into a den 8  of lions. The king consoled 9  Daniel by saying, “Your God whom you continually serve will rescue you!”

1 tn Aram “the word.”

2 tn Aram “placed his mind on.”

3 tn Aram “the entrances of the sun.”

4 tc Theodotion lacks the words “came by collusion to the king and.”

5 tn Aram “the king.”

6 tn Aram “know”; NAB “Keep in mind”; NASB “Recognize”; NIV, NCV “Remember.”

7 tn Aram “said.” So also in vv. 24, 25.

8 sn The den was perhaps a pit below ground level which could be safely observed from above.

9 tn Aram “answered and said [to Daniel].”
