Kid's Good News
Today whole world's attention is on Israel though it is a tiny
nation. Why is it so and what does the Bible talks about Israel. Let us look from the Bible.
years old Darius got the kingdom because Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, was
slain. It pleased Darius to set
over the kingdom one hundred and twenty satraps, to be over the whole kingdom;
and over these, three governors, of whom Daniel was one, that the satraps might
give account to them, so that the king would suffer no loss.
this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an
excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the
whole realm. So the governors and
satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but
they could not find any charge or fault, because he was faithful; nor was there
any error or fault found in him. Then
these men said, "We shall not find any charge against this Daniel unless we
find it against him concerning the law of his God."
So these governors and satraps thronged before the king, and said thus to him: "King Darius, live forever!
the governors of the kingdom, the administrators and satraps, the counselors and
advisors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a
firm decree, that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except you,
O king, shall be cast into the den of lions.
Now, O king, establish the decree and sign the writing, so that it cannot
be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not
King Darius signed the written decree.
when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper
room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three
times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom
since early days. Then these men
assembled and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God. And they went before the king, and spoke concerning the
king's decree: "Have you not signed a decree that every man who petitions
any god or man within thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the
den of lions?" The king answered and said, "The thing is true,
according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter."
So they answered and said before the king, "That Daniel, who is one
of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the
decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day."
the king, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and
set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored till the going down of
the sun to deliver him. Then these
men approached the king, and said to the king, "Know, O king, that it is
the law of the Medes and Persians that no decree or statute which the king
establishes may be changed." So
the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of
lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, "Your God, whom you serve
continually, He will deliver you." Then
a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it
with his own signet ring and with the signets of his lords, that the purpose
concerning Daniel might not be changed.
the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting; and no musicians were
brought before him. Also his sleep went from him.
Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the
den of lions. And when he came to
the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying
to Daniel, "Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve
continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?"
Daniel said to the king, "O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and
shut the lions' mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found
innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you." Then the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded
that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of
the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his
And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions; them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den.
Then King Darius wrote: To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you. I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel. For He is the living God, And steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, And His dominion shall endure to the end. He delivers and rescues, And He works signs and wonders In heaven and on earth, Who has 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.
