Prophet Daniel in the Den of Lions
by the order of King Darius
It pleased Darius to appoint 120 satraps to rule throughout the kingdom,
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.
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. 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.
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."
