Dan 3:17–18

3:17, 18 he will deliver . . . But if not. These verses express the central theme of the chapter. The idea is not that God will always protect His people from physical harm (Is. 43:1, 2). He may do that and certainly is able to. The central idea is that God’s people should be obedient to Him whatever the consequences.
