Daniel 6

LXX 1 And it pleased Darius, and he set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty satraps, to be in all his kingdom; NIV 1 It pleased Darius to appoint 120 satraps to rule throughout the kingdom, LXX 2 and over them three governors, of whom one was, Daniel; for the satraps to give account to them, that the king should not be troubled. NIV 2 with three administrators over them, one of whom was Daniel. The satraps were made accountable to them so that the king might not suffer loss. LXX 3 And Daniel was over them, for an excellent spirit in him; and the king set him over all his kingdom. NIV 3 Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom. LXX 4 Then the governors and satraps sought to find occasion against Daniel; but they found against him no occasion, nor trespass, nor error, because he was faithful. NIV 4 At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. LXX 5 And the governors said, We shall not find occasion against Daniel, except in the ordinances of his God. NIV 5 Finally these men said, “We will never find any basis for charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his God.” LXX 6 Then the governors and satraps stood by the king, and said to him, King Darius, live for ever. NIV 6 So these administrators and satraps went as a group to the king and said: “May King Darius live forever! LXX 7 All who preside over thy kingdom, captains and satraps, chiefs and local governors, have taken counsel together, to establish by a royal statue and to confirm a decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any god or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions. NIV 7 The royal administrators, prefects, satraps, advisers and governors have all agreed that the king should issue an edict and enforce the decree that anyone who prays to any god or human being during the next thirty days, except to you, Your Majesty, shall be thrown into the lions’ den. LXX 8 Now then, O king, establish the decree, and publish a writ, that the decree of the Persians and Medes be not changed. NIV 8 Now, Your Majesty, issue the decree and put it in writing so that it cannot be altered—in accordance with the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be repealed.” LXX 9 Then king Darius commanded the decree to be written. NIV 9 So King Darius put the decree in writing. LXX 10 And when Daniel knew that the decree was ordered, he went into his house; and his windows were opened in his chambers toward Jerusalem, and three times in the day he knelt upon his knees, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he used to do before. NIV 10 Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before. LXX 11 Then these men watched, and found Daniel praying and supplicating to his God. NIV 11 Then these men went as a group and found Daniel praying and asking God for help. LXX 12 And they came and said to the king, O king, has thou not made a decree, that whatsoever man shall ask a petition of any god or man for thirty days, but of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? And the king said, The word is true, and the decree of the Medes and Persians shall not pass. NIV 12 So they went to the king and spoke to him about his royal decree: “Did you not publish a decree that during the next thirty days anyone who prays to any god or human being except to you, Your Majesty, would be thrown into the lions’ den?” The king answered, “The decree stands—in accordance with the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be repealed.” LXX 13 Then they answered and said before the king, Daniel of the children of the captivity of Judea, has not submitted to thy decree; and three times in the day he makes his requests of his God. NIV 13 Then they said to the king, “Daniel, who is one of the exiles from Judah, pays no attention to you, Your Majesty, or to the decree you put in writing. He still prays three times a day.” LXX 14 Then the king, when he heard the saying, was much grieved for Daniel and he greatly exerted himself for Daniel to deliver him: and he exerted himself till evening to deliver him. NIV 14 When the king heard this, he was greatly distressed; he was determined to rescue Daniel and made every effort until sundown to save him. LXX 15 Then those men said to the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is that we must not change any decree of statue which the king shall make. NIV 15 Then the men went as a group to King Darius and said to him, “Remember, Your Majesty, that according to the law of the Medes and Persians no decree or edict that the king issues can be changed.” LXX 16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. But the king said to Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee. NIV 16 So the king gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the lions’ den. The king said to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!” LXX 17 And they brought a stone, and put it on the mouth of the den; and the king sealed with his ring, and with the ring of his nobles; that the case might not be altered with regard to Daniel. NIV 17 A stone was brought and placed over the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the rings of his nobles, so that Daniel’s situation might not be changed. LXX 18 And the king departed to his house, and lay down fasting, and they brought him no food; and his sleep departed from him. But God shut the mouths of the lions, and they not molest Daniel. NIV 18 Then the king returned to his palace and spent the night without eating and without any entertainment being brought to him. And he could not sleep. LXX 19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and came in hast to the den of lions. NIV 19 At the first light of dawn, the king got up and hurried to the lions’ den. LXX 20 And when he drew near to the den, he cried with a loud voice, Daniel, servant of the living God, has thy God, whom thou servest continually, been able to deliver thee from the lion's mouth? NIV 20 When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?” LXX 21 And Daniel said to the king, O king, live for ever. NIV 21 Daniel answered, “May the king live forever! LXX 22 My God has sent his angel, and stopped the lions' mouths, and they have not hurt me: for uprightness was found in me before him; and moreover before thee, O king, I have committed no trespass. NIV 22 My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, Your Majesty.” LXX 23 Then the king was very glad for him, and he commanded to bring Daniel out of the den. So Daniel was brought out of the den, and there was found no hurt upon him, because he believed in his God. NIV 23 The king was overjoyed and gave orders to lift Daniel out of the den. And when Daniel was lifted from the den, no wound was found on him, because he had trusted in his God. LXX 24 And the king commanded, and they brought the men that had accused Daniel, and they were cast into the den of lions, they, and their children, and their wives: and they reached not the bottom of the den before the lions had the mastery of them, and utterly broke to pieces all their bones. NIV 24 At the king’s command, the men who had falsely accused Daniel were brought in and thrown into the lions’ den, along with their wives and children. And before they reached the floor of the den, the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones. LXX 25 Then king Darius wrote to all nations, tribes, languages, who dwell in all the earth, , Peace be multiplied to you. NIV 25 Then King Darius wrote to all the nations and peoples of every language in all the earth: “May you prosper greatly! LXX 26 This decree has been set forth by me in every dominion of my kingdom, that tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living and eternal God, and his kingdom shall not be destroyed, and his dominion is for ever. NIV 26 “I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel. “For he is the living God and he endures forever; his kingdom will not be destroyed, his dominion will never end. LXX 27 He helps and delivers, and works signs and wonders in the heaven and on the earth, who has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions. NIV 27 He rescues and he saves; he performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.” LXX 28 And Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian. NIV 28 So Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
