And the king commanded, and they brought those men that had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and they had not come to the bottom of the den, when the lions had the mastery of them, and broke all their bones in pieces.
Then king Darius wrote unto all the peoples, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth: 'Peace be multiplied unto you.
I make a decree, that in all the dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the G-d of Daniel; for He is the living G-d, and stedfast for ever, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall be even unto the end;
He delivereth and rescueth, and He worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth; who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.'
So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
