Daniel 6:4-22

Then
<0116>
the presidents
<05632>
and princes
<0324>
sought
<01934> (8754) <01156> (8750)
to find
<07912> (8682)
occasion
<05931>
against Daniel
<01841>
concerning
<06655>
the kingdom
<04437>_;
but
<03606>
they could
<03202> (8750)
find
<07912> (8682)
none
<03809>
occasion
<05931>
nor
<03809>
fault
<07844> (8752)_;
forasmuch
<06903>
as he [was] faithful
<0540> (8683)_,
neither
<03809>
was there any
<03606>
error
<07960>
or fault
<07844> (8752)
found
<07912> (8728)
in him
<05922>_.
Then
<0116>
said
<0560> (8750)
these
<0479>
men
<01400>_,
We shall not
<03809>
find
<07912> (8684)
any
<03606>
occasion
<05931>
against
<05922>
this
<01836>
Daniel
<01841>_,
except
<03861>
we find
<07912> (8681)
[it] against him concerning the law
<01882>
of his God
<0426>_.
Then
<0116>
these
<0459>
presidents
<05632>
and princes
<0324>
assembled together
<07284> (8684)
to the king
<04430>_,
and said
<0560> (8750)
thus
<03652>
unto him
<05922>_,
King
<04430>
Darius
<01868>_,
live
<02418> (8747)
for ever
<05957>_.
{assembled...: or, came tumultuously}
All
<03606>
the presidents
<05632>
of the kingdom
<04437>_,
the governors
<05460>_,
and the princes
<0324>_,
the counsellors
<01907>_,
and the captains
<06347>_,
have consulted together
<03272> (8724)
to establish
<06966> (8742)
a royal
<04430>
statute
<07010>_,
and to make a firm
<08631> (8742)
decree
<0633>_,
that whosoever shall ask
<01156> (8748)
a petition
<01159>
of
<04481>
any
<03606>
God
<0426>
or man
<0606>
for
<05705>
thirty
<08533>
days
<03118>_,
save
<03861>
of thee
<04481>_,
O king
<04430>_,
he shall be cast
<07412> (8729)
into the den
<01358>
of lions
<0744>_.
{decree: or, interdict}
Now
<03705>_,
O king
<04430>_,
establish
<06966> (8681)
the decree
<0633>_,
and sign
<07560> (8748)
the writing
<03792>_,
that it be not
<03809>
changed
<08133> (8682)_,
according to the law
<01882>
of the Medes
<04076>
and Persians
<06540>_,
which altereth
<05709> (8748)
not
<03809>_.
{altereth not: Chaldee, passeth not}
Wherefore
<03606> <01836> <06903>
king
<04430>
Darius
<01868>
signed
<07560> (8754)
the writing
<03792>
and the decree
<0633>_.
Now when Daniel
<01841>
knew
<03046> (8754)
that the writing
<03792>
was signed
<07560> (8752)_,
he went
<05954> (8754)
into his house
<01005>_;
and his windows
<03551>
being open
<06606> (8759)
in his chamber
<05952>
toward
<05049>
Jerusalem
<03390>_,
he kneeled
<01289> (8750)
upon
<05922>
his knees
<01291>
three
<08532>
times
<02166>
a day
<03118>_,
and prayed
<06739> (8743)_,
and gave thanks
<03029> (8683)
before
<06925>
his God
<0426>_,
as
<06903> <03606>
he did
<01934> (8754) <05648> (8751)
aforetime
<04481> <01836> <06928>_.
Then
<0116>
these
<0479>
men
<01400>
assembled
<07284> (8684)_,
and found
<07912> (8684)
Daniel
<01841>
praying
<01156> (8750)
and making supplication
<02604> (8723)
before
<06925>
his God
<0426>_.
Then
<0116>
they came near
<07127> (8754)_,
and spake
<0560> (8750)
before
<06925>
the king
<04430>
concerning
<05922>
the king's
<04430>
decree
<0633>_;
Hast thou not
<03809>
signed
<07560> (8754)
a decree
<0633>_,
that every
<03606>
man
<0606>
that shall ask
<01156> (8748)
[a petition] of
<04481>
any
<03606>
God
<0426>
or man
<0606>
within
<05705>
thirty
<08533>
days
<03118>_,
save
<03861>
of thee
<04481>_,
O king
<04430>_,
shall be cast
<07412> (8729)
into the den
<01358>
of lions
<0744>_?
The king
<04430>
answered
<06032> (8750)
and said
<0560> (8750)_,
The thing
<04406>
[is] true
<03330>_,
according to the law
<01882>
of the Medes
<04076>
and Persians
<06540>_,
which altereth
<05709> (8748)
not
<03809>_.
Then
<0116>
answered
<06032> (8754)
they and said
<0560> (8750)
before
<06925>
the king
<04430>_,
That Daniel
<01841>_,
which [is] of
<04481>
the children
<01123>
of the captivity
<01547>
of Judah
<03061>_,
regardeth
<07761> (8754) <02942>
not
<03809>
thee
<05922>_,
O king
<04430>_,
nor the decree
<0633>
that thou hast signed
<07560> (8754)_,
but maketh
<01156> (8750)
his petition
<01159>
three
<08532>
times
<02166>
a day
<03118>_.
Then
<0116>
the king
<04430>_,
when he heard
<08086> (8754)
[these] words
<04406>_,
was sore
<07690>
displeased
<0888> (8754)
with himself, and set
<07761> (8754)
[his] heart
<01079>
on
<05922>
Daniel
<01841>
to deliver
<07804> (8756)
him: and he laboured
<01934> (8754) <07712> (8723)
till
<05705>
the going down
<04606>
of the sun
<08122>
to deliver
<05338> (8682)
him.
Then
<0116>
these
<0479>
men
<01400>
assembled
<07284> (8684)
unto
<05922>
the king
<04430>_,
and said
<0560> (8750)
unto the king
<04430>_,
Know
<03046> (8747)_,
O king
<04430>_,
that the law
<01882>
of the Medes
<04076>
and Persians
<06540>
[is], That no
<03606>
decree
<0633>
nor statute
<07010>
which the king
<04430>
establisheth
<06966> (8681)
may be changed
<08133> (8682)_.
Then
<0116>
the king
<04430>
commanded
<0560> (8754)_,
and they brought
<0858> (8684)
Daniel
<01841>_,
and cast
<07412> (8754)
[him] into the den
<01358>
of lions
<0744>_.
[Now] the king
<04430>
spake
<06032> (8750)
and said
<0560> (8750)
unto Daniel
<01841>_,
Thy God
<0426>
whom thou
<0607>
servest
<06399> (8750)
continually
<08411>_,
he will deliver
<07804> (8755)
thee.
And a
<02298>
stone
<069>
was brought
<0858> (8717)_,
and laid
<07761> (8752)
upon
<05922>
the mouth
<06433>
of the den
<01358>_;
and the king
<04430>
sealed
<02857> (8754)
it with his own signet
<05824>_,
and with the signet
<05824>
of his lords
<07261>_;
that the purpose
<06640>
might not
<03809>
be changed
<08133> (8748)
concerning Daniel
<01841>_.
Then
<0116>
the king
<04430>
went
<0236> (8754)
to his palace
<01965>_,
and passed the night
<0956> (8754)
fasting
<02908>_:
neither
<03809>
were instruments
<01761>
of musick brought
<05954> (8684)
before
<06925>
him: and his sleep
<08139>
went
<05075> (8754)
from him
<05922>_.
{instruments...: or, table}
Then
<0116>
the king
<04430>
arose
<06966> (8748)
very early
<08238>
in the morning
<05053>_,
and went
<0236> (8754)
in haste
<0927> (8726)
unto the den
<01358>
of lions
<0744>_.
And when he came
<07127> (8749)
to the den
<01358>_,
he cried
<02200> (8754)
with a lamentable
<06088> (8750)
voice
<07032>
unto Daniel
<01841>_:
[and] the king
<04430>
spake
<06032> (8750)
and said
<0560> (8750)
to Daniel
<01841>_,
O Daniel
<01841>_,
servant
<05649>
of the living
<02417>
God
<0426>_,
is thy God
<0426>_,
whom thou servest
<06399> (8750)
continually
<08411>_,
able
<03202> (8754)
to deliver
<07804> (8756)
thee from
<04481>
the lions
<0744>_?
Then
<0116>
said
<04449> (8745)
Daniel
<01841>
unto
<05974>
the king
<04430>_,
O king
<04430>_,
live
<02418> (8747)
for ever
<05957>_.
My God
<0426>
hath sent
<07972> (8754)
his angel
<04398>_,
and hath shut
<05463> (8754)
the lions
<0744>_'
mouths
<06433>_,
that they have not
<03809>
hurt
<02255> (8745)
me: forasmuch as
<03606> <06903>
before
<06925>
him innocency
<02136>
was found
<07912> (8728)
in me; and also
<0638>
before
<06925>
thee, O king
<04430>_,
have I done
<05648> (8754)
no
<03809>
hurt
<02248>_.
