24 And the king gave the command, wand they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions—them, xtheir 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.
25 yThen King Darius wrote:
To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth:
Peace be multiplied to you.
bFor He is the living God,
And steadfast forever;
His kingdom is the one which shall not be cdestroyed,
And His dominion shall endure to the end.
dAnd He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel from the 9power of the lions.
