At the end of the time4 set by the king to bring them in, the chief official presented them to Nebuchadnezzar.
The king talked with them, and he found none equal to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah; so they entered the king's service.520
In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians6 and enchanters in his whole kingdom.721
And Daniel remained there until the first year of King Cyrus.8
