19 At the first light of dawn, the king got up and hurried to the lions’ den.
20 When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice,
“Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you
serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?”
21 Daniel answered, “O king, live forever! 22 My God sent his angel,
and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me,
because I was found innocent in his sight.
Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, O king.”
