25 Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations,
and men of every language throughout the land:
“May you prosper greatly!
26 “I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom
people must fear and reverence
the God of Daniel.
“For he is the living God
and he endures forever;
his kingdom will not be destroyed,
his dominion will never end.
27 He rescues and he saves;
he performs signs and wonders
in the heavens and on the earth.
He has rescued Daniel
from the power of the lions.”
28 So Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius
and the reign of Cyrus the Persian
