Daniel Chapter 6



The princes of Medo-Persia become jealous of Daniel and plot to overthrow him. Since they cannot find anything to accuse in his character, they plot to create legislation against Daniel’s religion by flattering the king with a law requiring all requests of the empire come only to the king for thirty days. As before, Daniel prays to the God of heaven. The punishment is to be thrown into a den of lions. The king realizes that he has been tricked and labors till sundown to deliver Daniel. But, the law of the Medes and Persians cannot be altered. So, Daniel is thrown to the lions, while Darius expresses his faith that God can deliver him.
