Then in a night vision the mystery was revealed to Daniel. So Daniel praised 1 the God of heaven,
Then those officials who had gone to the king 1 came by collusion and found Daniel praying and asking for help before his God.
So the king gave the order, 1 and Daniel was brought and thrown into a den 2 of lions. The king consoled 3 Daniel by saying, “Your God whom you continually serve will rescue you!”
As he approached the den, he called out to Daniel in a worried voice, 1 “Daniel, servant of the living God, was your God whom you continually serve able to rescue you from the lions?”
But the overseer of the court officials renamed them. He gave 1 Daniel the name Belteshazzar, Hananiah he named Shadrach, Mishael he named Meshach, and Azariah he named Abednego. 2

The king replied to Daniel, “Certainly your God is a God of gods and Lord of kings and revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery!”
Then the king elevated Daniel to high position and bestowed on him many marvelous gifts. He granted him authority over the entire province of Babylon and made him the main prefect over all the wise men of Babylon.
So Daniel was brought in before the king. The king said to Daniel, “Are you that Daniel who is one of the captives of Judah, whom my father the king brought from Judah?
