Daniel 1:3-6 (The Message)

View In My Bible
3 The king told Ashpenaz, head of the palace staff, to get some Israelites from the royal family and nobility 4 - young men who were healthy and handsome, intelligent and well-educated, good prospects for leadership positions in the government, perfect specimens! - and indoctrinate them in the Babylonian language and the lore of magic and fortunetelling. 5 The king then ordered that they be served from the same menu as the royal table - the best food, the finest wine. After three years of training they would be given positions in the king's court. 6 Four young men from Judah - Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah - were among those selected.
