King Darius issues a decree: No Praying to any God or man for thirty days.
Daniel in the Den of Lions
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."
So the administrators and the satraps went as a group to the king and said:
"O King Darius, live forever! The royal administrators, prefects, satraps,
advisers and governors have all agreed that the king should issue an edict
and enforce the decree that anyone who prays to any god or man during the
next thirty days, except to you, O king, shall be thrown into the lions' den.
Now, O king, issue the decree and put it in writing so that it cannot be
altered--in accordance with the laws of the Medes and Persians,
which cannot be repealed."
by the order of King Darius
