Daniel 6:5-7

NSB(i) 5 These men said: »We shall not find any charge against Daniel, unless we find it against him in the Law of his God.« 6 Then these commissioners and governors assembled before the king, and said: »King Darius, may you live for a very long time.« 7 »All the governors of the kingdom, the deputies and the governors, the counselors consulted together to establish a royal statute. They made a strong decree, that whoever prays to any god or man for thirty days, except to you, O king, shall be thrown into the den of lions.
