1 G2532 And G700 it was pleasing G1799 before G* Darius, G2532 and G2525 he placed G1909 over G3588 the G932 kingdom G4568.2 [3satraps G1540 1a hundred G1501 2twenty], G3588 G1510.1 for them to be G1473 G1722 in G3650 [2entire G3588 G932 3kingdom G1473 1his].
2 G2532 And G1883 above G1473 them G5001.2 [2tacticians G5140 1three], G3739 which G1510.7.3 Daniel was G* G1520 one G1537 of G1473 them, G3588 for the G591 [2to render G1473 4to them G3588 G4568.2 1satraps G3056 3a reckoning], G3704 so that G3588 the G935 king G3361 should not G1776 be troubled.
3 G2532 And G1510.7.3 Daniel was G* G5228 over G1473 them, G3754 for G4151 [2spirit G4053 1extra] G1510.7.3 was G1722 in G1473 him, G2532 and G3588 the G935 king G2525 placed G1473 him G1909 over G3650 [2entire G3588 G932 3kingdom G1473 1his].
4 G2532 And G3588 the G5001.2 tacticians G2532 and G3588 the G4568.2 satraps G2212 sought G4392 an excuse G2147 to find something G2596 against G* Daniel; G2532 and G3956 any G4392 excuse, G2532 or G3900 transgression, G2532 or G290.1 error G3756 they did not G2147 find G2596 against G1473 him, G3754 for G4103 he was trustworthy. G1510.7.3
5 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G5001.2 2tacticians], G3756 We did not find G2147 G2596 against G* Daniel G4392 an excuse G1508 unless it be G1722 in G3544.1 the laws G2316 of his God. G1473
6 G5119 Then G3588 the G5001.2 tacticians, G2532 and G3588 the G4568.2 satraps G3936 stood beside G3588 the G935 king. G2532 And G2036 they said G1473 to him, G* O king Darius, G935 G1519 [2into G3588 3the G165 4eons G2198 1live]!
7 G4823 [5took counsel G3956 1All G3588 2the ones G1909 3over G3588 G932 4your kingdom] -- G1473 G4755 the commandants, G2532 and G4568.2 satraps, G5225.1 the supreme leaders, G2532 and G5116.1 toparchs, G3588 G2476 to establish G4714 [2position G937 1a royal], G2532 and G1765 to strengthen G3725.1 an enactment, G3704 so that G3739 whoever G1437 G154 should ask G155 a request G3844 from G3956 any G2316 god G2532 or G444 man, G2193 for G2250 [2days G5144 1thirty], G237.1 except G3844 from G1473 you, G935 O king, G1685 shall be put G1519 into G3588 the G2978.1 pit G3588 of the G3023 lions.
8 G3568 Now G3767 then, G935 O king, G2476 establish G3588 the G3725.1 enactment, G2532 and G1620 display G1124 in writing G3704 how G3361 [6should not G241.3 7be changed G3588 1the G1378 2decree G* 3of the Persians G2532 4and G* 5Medes]!
10 G2532 And G* when Daniel G2259 G1097 knew G3754 that G1778.1 [3was arranged G3588 1the G1378 2decree], G1525 he went G1519 into G3588 G3624 his house, G1473 G2532 and G3588 the G2376 windows G455 were open G1473 to him G1722 in G3588 G5253 his upper rooms G1473 G2713 before G* Jerusalem. G2532 And G2540 [2times G5140 1three] G3588 of the G2250 day G1510.7.3 he was G2578 bending G1909 upon G3588 G1119 his knees, G1473 G2532 and G4336 praying, G2532 and G1843 making acknowledgment G1726 before G3588 G2316 his God, G1473 G2531 as G1510.7.3 he was G4160 doing G1715 before.
11 G5119 Then G3588 G435 those men G1565 G3906 closely watched, G2532 and G2147 they found G3588 G* Daniel G515 petitioning G2532 and G1189 beseeching G3588 G2316 his God. G1473
12 G2532 And G4334 coming forward, G3004 they say G3588 to the G935 king, G935 O king, G3756 did you not G3725.1 [2an enactment G5021 1order] G3704 so that G3956 every G444 man G3739 who G302 ever G154 should ask G3844 from G3956 any G2316 God G2532 or G444 man G155 a request G2193 unto G2250 [2days G5144 1thirty], G237.1 except G3844 from G1473 you, G935 O king, G1685 shall be put G1519 into G3588 the G2978.1 pit G3588 G3023 of lions? G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king], G228 [3 is true G3588 1The G3056 2word], G2532 and G3588 the G1378 decree G* of the Medes G2532 and G* Persians G3756 shall not G3928 pass.
13 G5119 Then G611 they responded, G2532 and G3004 they spoke G1799 before G3588 the G935 king, saying, G* Daniel, G3739 the one G575 from G3588 the G5207 sons G3588 of the G161 captivity G3588 G* of Judea G3756 was not G5293 submitted G3588 to G1378 your decree; G1473 G2532 and G2540 [2times G5140 1three] G3588 of the G2250 day G154 he asks G3844 of G3588 G2316 his God G1473 G3588 the G155 requests G1473 of his.
14 G5119 Then G3588 the G935 king, G5613 as G191 he heard G3588 the G4487 saying, G4183 [2much G3076 1fretted] G1909 over G1473 him; G2532 and G4012 concerning G3588 G* Daniel G75 he struggled G3588 G1807 to rescue G1473 him, G2532 and G2193 until G2073 evening G1510.7.3 he was G75 struggling G3588 G1807 to rescue G1473 him.
15 G5119 Then G3588 G435 those men G1565 G3004 say G3588 to the G935 king, G1097 Know, G935 O king! G3754 that G3588 the G1378 decree G* of the Medes G2532 and G* Persians, G3588 G3956 every G3725.1 enactment G2532 and G4714 position G3739 which G3588 the G935 king G2476 shall establish G3756 must not G1163 G3883.2 be altered.
16 G5119 Then G3588 the G935 king G2036 spoke, G2532 and G71 they led G3588 G* Daniel, G2532 and G1685 they put G1473 him G1519 into G3588 the G2978.1 pit G3588 of the G3023 lions. G2532 But G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king] G3588 to G* Daniel, G3588 G2316 Your God G1473 G3739 in whom G1473 you G3000 serve G1734.2 continually, G1473 he G1807 will rescue G1473 you.
17 G2532 And G5342 they brought G3037 [2stone G1520 1one], G2532 and G2007 they placed it G1909 upon G3588 the G4750 mouth G3588 of the G2978.1 pit, G2532 and G4972 [3set seal on it G3588 1the G935 2king] G1722 with G3588 G1146 his ring, G1473 G2532 and G1722 with G3588 the G1146 ring G3588 G3175 of his great men; G1473 G3704 so that G3361 [2should not G241.3 3be changed G4229 1 the thing] G1722 with regard G3588 G* to Daniel.
18 G2532 And G565 [3went forth G3588 1the G935 2king] G1519 unto G3588 G3624 his house, G1473 G2532 and G2837 he went to bed G78.1 supperless; G2532 and G1475.1 food G3756 was not G1533 carried in G1473 to him, G2532 and G3588 G5258 sleep G868 left G575 from G1473 him.
19 G5119 Then G3588 the G935 king G450 rose up G4404 in the morning G1722 at G3588 the G5457 light. G2532 And G1722 in G4710 haste G2064 he came G1909 unto G3588 the G2978.1 pit G3588 of the G3023 lions.
20 G2532 And G1722 at G3588 G1448 his approaching G1473 G3588 to the G2978.1 pit G3588 [2to G* 3Daniel G994 1he yelled G5456 5voice G2478 4a strong], G* Daniel, G3588 O G1401 servant G3588 of the G2316 living God, G3588 G2198 G3588 G2316 your God G1473 G3739 in whom G1473 you G3000 serve G1734.2 continually, G1487 was G1410 he able G1807 to rescue G1473 you G1537 from out of G4750 the mouth G3588 of the G3023 lions?
21 G2532 And G2036 Daniel said G* G3588 to the G935 king, G935 O king, G1519 [2into G3588 3the G165 4eons G2198 1live]!
22 G3588 G2316 My God G1473 G649 sent G3588 G32 his angel, G1473 G2532 and G1719.2 he obstructed G3588 the G4750 mouths G3588 of the G3023 lions, G2532 and G3756 they did not G3075 lay me waste; G1473 G3754 for G2713 before G1473 him G2118 uprightness G2147 was found G1722 in G1473 me; G2532 and G1799 even before G1161 G1473 you, G935 O king, G3900 [3a transgression G3756 1I did not G4160 2commit].
23 G5119 Then G3588 the G935 king G4183 felt much G18.2 good G1909 over G1473 him, G2532 and G3588 G* spoke for Daniel G2036 G399 to be brought G1537 from out of G3588 the G2978.1 pit. G2532 And G399 they bore G* Daniel G1537 from out of G3588 the G2978.1 pit, G2532 and G3956 all G1312 hurt G3756 was not found G2147 G1722 on G1473 him, G3754 for G4100 he trusted G1722 in G3588 G2316 his God. G1473
24 G2532 And G2036 [3spoke G3588 1the G935 2king], G2532 and G71 they led G3588 the G435 men, G3588 the ones G1225 accusing G3588 G* Daniel, G2532 and G1519 [3into G3588 4the G2978.1 5pit G3588 6of the G3023 7lions G1685 1they put G1473 2them], G2532 and G3588 G5207 their sons, G1473 G2532 and G3588 G1135 their wives. G1473 G2532 And G3756 they did not G5348 come G1519 unto G3588 the G1475 floor G3588 of the G2978.1 pit G2193 before G3739 G2961 [3dominated G1473 4them G3588 1the G3023 2lions], G2532 and G3956 [2all G3588 G3747 3of their bones G1473 G3016.1 1made fine].
25 G5119 Then G* Darius G3588 the G935 king G1125 wrote G3956 to all G3588 the G2992 peoples, G5443 tribes, G1100 and languages, G3588 to the ones G3611 living G1722 in G3956 all G3588 the G1093 earth, saying, G1515 Peace G1473 be multiplied unto you. G4129
26 G1537 From G4383 my presence G1473 G5087 I made G1378 a decree G3588 for the one G1722 in G3956 every G746 rule G3588 G932 of my kingdom G1473 G1510.1 to be G5141 trembling G2532 and G5399 fearing G575 from G4383 the face G3588 of the G2316 God G* of Daniel. G3754 For G1473 he G1510.2.3 is G2316 the living God, G2198 G2532 and G3306 the one abiding G1519 into G3588 the G165 eons, G2532 and G3588 G932 his kingdom G1473 G3756 shall not G1311 be destroyed, G2532 and G3588 G2955.1 his dominion G1473 G2193 is unto G5056 the end.
27 G482 He takes hold of G2532 and G4506 he rescues, G2532 and G4160 he produces G4592 signs G2532 and G5059 miracles G1722 in G3588 the G3772 heaven G2532 and G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 earth, G3748 who G1807 rescued G3588 G* Daniel G1537 from G4750 the mouth G3588 of the G3023 lions.
