Daniel 6:24-25

Context
6:24 The king gave another order, 1  and those men who had maliciously accused 2  Daniel were brought and thrown 3  into the lions’ den – they, their children, and their wives. 4  They did not even reach the bottom of the den before the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.

6:25 Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations, and language groups who were living in all the land: “Peace and prosperity! 5 

1 tn Aram “said.”

2 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.

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

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

5 tn Aram “May your peace be increased!”
