Top Daniel 6:1-28, BBE.

“1 Darius was pleased to put over the kingdom a hundred and twenty captains, who were to be all through the kingdom; 2 And over them were three chief rulers, of whom Daniel was one; and the captains were to be responsible to the chief rulers, so that the king might undergo no loss. 3 Then this Daniel did his work better than the chief rulers and the captains, because there was a special spirit in him; and it was the king’s purpose to put him over all the kingdom. 4 Then the chief rulers and the captains were looking for some cause for putting Daniel in the wrong in connection with the kingdom, but they were unable to put forward any wrongdoing or error against him; because he was true, and no error or wrong was to be seen in him. 5 Then these men said, We will only get a reason for attacking Daniel in connection with the law of his God. 6 Then these chief rulers and the captains came to the king and said to him, O King Darius, have life for ever. 7 All the chief rulers of the kingdom, the chiefs and the captains, the wise men and the rulers, have made a common decision to put in force a law having the king’s authority, and to give a strong order, that whoever makes any request to any god or man but you, O King, for thirty days, is to be put into the lions’ hole. 8 Now, O King, put the order in force, signing the writing so that it may not be changed, like the law of the Medes and Persians which may not come to an end. 9 For this reason King Darius put his name on the writing and the order. 10 And Daniel, on hearing that the writing had been signed, went into his house; (now he had windows in his room on the roof opening in the direction of Jerusalem;) and three times a day he went down on his knees in prayer and praise before his God, as he had done before. 11 Then these men were watching and saw Daniel making prayers and requesting grace before his God. 12 Then they came near before the king and said, O King, have you not put your name to an order that any man who makes a request to any god or man but you, O King, for thirty days, is to be put into the lions’ hole? The king made answer and said, The thing is fixed by the law of the Medes and Persians which may not come to an end. 13 Then they made answer and said before the king, Daniel, one of the prisoners of Judah, has no respect for you, O King, or for the order signed by you, but three times a day he makes his prayer to God. 14 When this thing came to the king’s ears, it was very evil to him, and his heart was fixed on keeping Daniel safe, and till the going down of the sun he was doing everything in his power to get him free. 15 Then these men said to the king, Be certain, O King, that by the law of the Medes and Persians no order or law which the king has put into force may be changed. 16 Then the king gave the order, and they took Daniel and put him into the lions’ hole. The king made answer and said to Daniel, Your God, whose servant you are at all times, will keep you safe. 17 Then they got a stone and put it over the mouth of the hole, and it was stamped with the king’s stamp and with the stamp of the lords, so that the decision about Daniel might not be changed. 18 Then the king went to his great house, and took no food that night, and no...were placed before him, and his sleep went from him. 19 Then very early in the morning the king got up and went quickly to the lions’ hole. 20 And when he came near the hole where Daniel was, he gave a loud cry of grief; the king made answer and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is your God, whose servant you are at all times, able to keep you safe from the lions? 21 Then Daniel said to the king, O King, have life for ever. 22 My God has sent his angel to keep the lions’ mouths shut, and they have done me no damage: because I was seen to be without sin before him; and further, before you, O King, I have done no wrong. 23 Then the king was very glad, and gave orders for them to take Daniel up out of the hole. So Daniel was taken up out of the hole and he was seen to be untouched, because he had faith in his God. 24 And at the king’s order, they took those men who had said evil against Daniel, and put them in the lions’ hole, with their wives and their children; and they had not got to the floor of the hole before the lions overcame them and all their bones were broken. 25 Then King Darius sent a letter to all the peoples, nations, and languages, living in all the earth: May your peace be increased. 26 It is my order that in all the kingdom of which I am ruler, men are to be shaking with fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, unchanging for ever, and his kingdom is one which will never come to destruction, his rule will go on to the end. 27 He gives salvation and makes men free from danger, and does signs and wonders in heaven and earth, who has kept Daniel safe from the power of the lions. 28 So this Daniel did well in the kingdom of Darius and in the kingdom of Cyrus the Persian.”

“1 My loved ones, this is now my second letter to you, and in this as in the first, I am attempting to keep your true minds awake; 2 So that you may keep in mind the words of the holy prophets in the past, and the law of the Lord and Saviour which was given to you by his Apostles. 3 Having first of all the knowledge that in the last days there will be men who, ruled by their evil desires, will make sport of holy things, 4 Saying, Where is the hope of his coming? From the death of the fathers till now everything has gone on as it was from the making of the world. 5 But in taking this view they put out of their minds the memory that in the old days there was a heaven, and an earth lifted out of the water and circled by water, by the word of God; 6 And that the world which then was came to an end through the overflowing of the waters. 7 But the present heaven and the present earth have been kept for destruction by fire, which is waiting for them on the day of the judging and destruction of evil men. 8 But, my loved ones, keep in mind this one thing, that with the Lord one day is the same as a thousand years, and a thousand years are no more than one day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his word, as he seems to some, but he is waiting in mercy for you, not desiring the destruction of any, but that all may be turned from their evil ways. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; and in that day the heavens will be rolled up with a great noise, and the substance of the earth will be changed by violent heat, and the world and everything in it will be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things are coming to such an end, what sort of persons is it right for you to be, in all holy behaviour and righteousness, 12 Looking for and truly desiring the coming of the day of God, when the heavens will come to an end through fire, and the substance of the earth will be changed by the great heat? 13 But having faith in his word, we are looking for a new heaven and a new earth, which will be the resting-place of righteousness. 14 For this reason, my loved ones, as you are looking for these things, take great care that when he comes you may be in peace before him, free from sin and every evil thing. 15 And be certain that the long waiting of the Lord is for salvation; even as our brother Paul has said in his letters to you, from the wisdom which was given to him; 16 And as he said in all his letters, which had to do with these things; in which are some hard sayings, so that, like the rest of the holy Writings, they are twisted by those who are uncertain and without knowledge, to the destruction of their souls. 17 For this reason, my loved ones, having knowledge of these things before they take place, take care that you are not turned away by the error of the uncontrolled, so falling from your true faith. 18 But be increased in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May he have glory now and for ever. So be it.”

(PE)

“129 Your unchanging word is full of wonder; for this reason my soul keeps it. 130 The opening of your words gives light; it gives good sense to the simple. 131 My mouth was open wide, waiting with great desire for your teachings. 132 Let your eyes be turned to me, and have mercy on me, as it is right for you to do to those who are lovers of your name. 133 Let my steps be guided by your word; and let not sin have control over me. 134 Make me free from the cruel rule of man; then I will keep your orders. 135 Let your servant see the shining of your face; give me knowledge of your rules. 136 Rivers of water are flowing from my eyes, because men do not keep your law. 137 O Lord, great is your righteousness, and upright are your decisions. 138 You have given your unchanging word in righteousness, and it is for ever. 139 My passion has overcome me; because my haters are turned away from your words. 140 Your word is of tested value; and it is dear to your servant. 141 I am small and of no account; but I keep your orders in mind. 142 Your righteousness is an unchanging righteousness, and your law is certain. 143 Pain and trouble have overcome me: but your teachings are my delight. 144 The righteousness of your unchanging word is eternal; give me wisdom so that I may have life. 145 I have made my prayer with all my heart; give answer to me, O Lord: I will keep your rules. 146 My cry has gone up to you; take me out of trouble, and I will be guided by your unchanging word. 147 Before the sun is up, my cry for help comes to your ear; my hope is in your words. 148 In the night watches I am awake, so that I may give thought to your saying. 149 Let my voice come to you, in your mercy; O Lord, by your decisions give me life. 150 Those who have evil designs against me come near; they are far from your law. 151 You are near, O Lord; and all your teachings are true. 152 I have long had knowledge that your unchanging word is for ever.”
