English Standard Version
7 All the (A)high officials of the kingdom, the prefects and the satraps, the (B)counselors and the governors are agreed that the king should establish an ordinance and enforce an (C)injunction, that whoever makes petition to any god or man for thirty days, except to you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions. 8 Now, O king, establish (D)the injunction and sign the document, so that it cannot be changed, according to (E)the law of (F)the Medes and the Persians, (G)which cannot be revoked.” 9 Therefore King Darius signed the document and (H)injunction.
10 When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where (I)he had windows in his upper chamber open (J)toward Jerusalem. He got down on his knees (K)three times a day and prayed and (L)gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.Read full chapter
