Daniel 6:1-2

Context
Daniel is Thrown into a Lions’ Den

6:1 It seemed like a good idea to Darius 1  to appoint over the kingdom 120 satraps 2  who would be in charge of the entire kingdom. 6:2 Over them would be three supervisors, one of whom was Daniel. These satraps were accountable 3  to them, so that the king’s interests might not incur damage.

1 tn Aram “It was pleasing before Darius.”

2 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.

3 tn Aram “giving an account.”
