Bible: Dan 6:5-11

6:5 So these men concluded, 1 We won’t find any pretext against this man Daniel unless it is 2  in connection with the law of his God.”

6:6 So these supervisors and satraps came by collusion 3  to the king and said 4  to him, “O King Darius, live forever! 6:7 To all the supervisors of the kingdom, the prefects, satraps, counselors, and governors it seemed like a good idea for a royal edict to be issued and an interdict to be enforced. For the next thirty days anyone who prays 5  to any god or human other than you, O king, should be thrown into a den of lions. 6:8 Now let the king issue a written interdict 6  so that it cannot be altered, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be changed. 7  6:9 So King Darius issued the written interdict.

6:10 When Daniel realized 8  that a written decree had been issued, he entered his home, where the windows 9  in his upper room opened toward Jerusalem. 10  Three 11  times daily he was 12  kneeling 13  and offering prayers and thanks to his God just as he had been accustomed to do previously. 6:11 Then those officials who had gone to the king 14  came by collusion and found Daniel praying and asking for help before his God.
