Bible: Daniel 6:24-27

6:24 The king gave another order, 1  and those men who had maliciously accused 2  Daniel were brought and thrown 3  into the lionsden – they, their children, and their wives. 4  They did not even reach the bottom of the den before the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.

6:25 Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations, and language groups who were living in all the land: “Peace and prosperity! 5  6:26 I have issued an edict that throughout all the dominion of my kingdom people are to revere and fear the God of Daniel.

For he is the living God;

he endures forever.

His kingdom will not be destroyed;

his authority is forever. 6 

6:27 He rescues and delivers

and performs signs and wonders

in the heavens and on the earth.

He has rescued Daniel from the power 7  of the lions!
